Jeez I've never saw so much moaning! Make a decision! It's happened before it will happen again,me I'm a country before club man so have given my ST away to friends but if it was the other way around I'd be at WR while recording the England game or watching the highlights on BBC2 or the full game on YouTube later on, mountain and molehill spring to mind!
I know. The same applies for people moaning about kick off day and time changes. It has happened before and will keep on happening. Make a decision as to whether to buy a season ticket or not and don't moan about it.

This was why I made the tongue in cheek comment.

Are you in that picture of the Try Line Club, Noddy?

Ellis suggests Tigers kick off mid day, that affects many who watch their kids on a Saturday morning, also many Tigers fans live a distance away travelling from Norfolk, Essex, Staffordshire and even further away all these should be inconvenienced just because one or two don't want to press the record button. I am sure on this occasion at least Tigers have made a decision that suits the majority of their fans.

Incorrect. Kids rugby played on Sunday, not Saturday.

I also travel from outside of Leicester and I'd still be happy with a midday kick off.

Schools rugby is played on a Saturday morning!

Kids do a variety of things on a Saturday morning, This week one granddaughter will be playing tennis followed by dance, another will be playing football, a grandson will be in a tennis match, school sports are often on Saturdays and many Dads like to be there. Ellis I think you have pushed this " tongue in cheek " debate so far I am beginning to think you really mean it.

So only the private school kids will be affected. Not that many then!

Hopefully people have realised you cannot please all of the people all of the time.

Instead of moaning when kick off times don't suit and then blaming Tigers, hopefully you'll realise that there will always be a time that doesn't suit someone.

First World problems. I (as I suspect many billions worldwide also do) wish my biggest problem in life was a fixture clash on a Saturday afternoon.

Ticket sales look well up so perhaps it is a popular time after all .

Thankfully, I don't really have any problems to worry about. To be honest, if I want to make tongue in cheek comments, I am more than entitled to do so. If as you say, you have bigger things to worry about, then you don't need to comment on this or other topics.

Saturday 3pm kick offs should be a sell out with the amount of moaning from people about not having enough of them.

I have never said they aren't popular.

Agree Hot_Charlie, seems the topic was created just for arguments sake!
Some sort of double bluff!
That said you might think in that case that an apology might be offered when a poster trying to be a clever dick and make others look silly then wrongly calls out another as incorrect, or if not an apology then at least a pint offered!
