You can appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf by firstly finding someone willing, and then e-mailing the SG to let them know, per the instructions in the e-mail you may or may not have received by now.

Re: Raj Singh

Excellent summary Mikky. I know it's not the same thing but Salford's owners appear to have a 50/50 split between Peter Lim and the class of 92. Perhaps this would be possible for us? Didn't MG confirm at the recent forum that anything less than 51% is not workable? Could be wrong but don't think s...

Re: Raj Singh

The alternative was Martin's belief, and not one I necessarily agree with. We still have one of the larger fan bases at this level, never mind the ones below it, which with sufficient budgetary control could leave us with a playing budget that wouldn't be top 5 but wouldn't be threatening to our lea...

Re: I support the Board

It still feels like a stupid rule to me. Asking teams to spend five to six figure sums - at our level - on the possibility they could be promoted is just asking for those clubs to be in financial trouble if they don't win the league and / or fail in the playoffs.
