It's not in DJ's character to be underhand like this though, and he wouldn't put the idea out there if there wasn't an idea of how to fund it. You're usually a bit more positive than this H. I think the coronavirus is getting to you.
Bloody hope not :lol: , and I hope you're right... but I also don't see how we get out of a contract. As the poster above points out, the rugby club almost certainly hold us to the terms of the contract, as they've also invested in the infrastructure and will have costs associated with that they will want to recoup. I can't really envisage a scenario where they'd just let it go.

Not sure if I am correct here but did the rugby not take out a mortgage to pay for the changing rooms and building improvements which will be paid back through our rent.

No doubt if we pulled out they would be in deep s*** as I don't think they would have the income to maintain the payments.
wouldnt put us in a good position or give the club a good name either

Wasn't there some grants for improvements to the ground from FA which have conditions that we have to stay for so many years, else have to repay the amount? Thought this was around 5 years, so we would be liable for this if we moved before that conditional period expired.

Once Darlington council decide on Sporting village going ahead (or not) all your questions will be answered and we can vote, relax lets concentrate on the playoff push

There is a huge amount of cash coming to revamp Darlington station. With the Cattle Market being relocated, why not include the Sporting Village as part of the redevelopment?

The Coronavirus has come at a terrible time for ST sales. Sadly fans will have to think of their families if they have lost or think they could lose there jobs. I know the club has asked fans to renew there season ticket sales asap, but I can't see us having as many ST sold next season as we sold last season.

Hopefully they will extend the early bird to allow more time to purchase due to the uncertainty with jobs and money in the current climate.

not to mention how many are now wondering if and when there will be a next season (depending when this season is finished)

I wonder if it would be possible to finish this season at the start of next season and then temporarily split the division into two halves with a one off league cup to subsidize missing league fixtures. Just a thought seeing as this virus could be around for a while yet.
