I'll be amazed if Halifax aren't also included within the reserve comp next season.

If they aren't and are forced into using DR it will be the end of the road for some of us.....

Which means:

Fans of teams that use DR regularly will defend it

Fans of teams that use DR, but less frequently will continue to say their use is much more honourable

Fans of teams that don't use DR will continue to condemn it (regardless of whether their team has used it previously)

Those are the forum rules owd cock :lol:

What do you mean by "forced" BJ?

if you aren't allowed in the reserves competition - I would assume you have no fixtures

Making an assumption that if we had no reserve team we would be forced into proper DR useage to supplement the squad.

Yes and that is the state of affairs at a fair few clubs past and present.

I suppose for Fax at this point in time it would come down to money in the end, without the reserves we wouldn't have them to call on, on the other hand we would have the money saved from them to have a larger / slightly larger first team squad.

(By the way. A big hand to all the Fax fund raisers and who have worked so hard to keep passing those checks onto the club and to all those who have dipped into their pockets again and again. :CLAP: :CLAP: :CLAP: )

Another factor for Fax as of now, when the other clubs in the comp especially our closet rivals choose to use DR and gain a sort term advantage through results (which they are doing) what do Fax do then?

Choose to say no thanks and end up a mid to low table side or even worse, it's not the only reason but it has played a part this year and I do fear there is a real likely hood of a repeat in the coming seasons.

If that happens crowd levels gradually go down and people drift away when they lose more than they win and apart from the result the standard of play / entertainment value is average to below average and people decide "I'm not paying so much to watch that".

I think clubs like Fax face more and more pressure (being forced) to consider using DR to stay competitive at the moment but it could quickly become being forced into it just to stay alive.

It's deep routed now and is not going to go away, as unpopular as it is it's as much apart of the modern game setup as anything else and we either get used to it or move on to something else.

I'm just wondering where all these extra players are going to come from.

In the short term, like.

There's no reason at all why DR shouldn't go away. If it stays any longer feeder clubs will become the norm for those clubs who don't fold altogether.

We need to go back to every club having a reserve grade club for that to happen.

And I don't think we have enough players for that by a long chalk - short of stripping out the amateur game.
