BRFC Action Group Press Release

BRFC Action Group Press Release

The following is the latest press release from the protest demonstration organisers ahead of our fixture with Newcastle in two weeks time...

The BRFC Action Group would like to confirm that the organised protests against the owners of Blackburn Rovers will continue with more protests planned for both the Newcastle fixture and Transfer deadline day.

Last week, the organised element of protest reluctantly returned when supporters held both a 24 hour static protest and a protest march. Since purchasing the club Venkys have constantly failed to keep promises and pledges made towards the clubs supporters.

During the last week supporters have seen an internal letter leak which was covered by Nick Harris on his Sporting Intelligence website (http://www.sportingintelligence.com/2012/01/15/revealed-the-letter-that-exposes-the-history-of-blackburn-rovers-crisis-150102/).

This letter was written by the three most senior members of the board including then Chairman John Williams to Mrs A Desai, one of the legal owners of Blackburn Rovers.

This shows further evidence of how dysfunctional the club has become since the well publicised takeover in November 2010. Since the letter which was dated the 4th January 2011, we have seen the co-signees depart the club without explanation and without adequate replacements being appointed.

The organisers themselves passed comment on the situation with the following comments - "It`s deeply disappointing that we find ourselves still organising protest four months after the very first one took place, prior to the Arsenal Fixture in September.

Protest came about as a last resort; after all previous attempts to have open dialogue with Blackburn Rovers fell on deaf ears. We maintain that the club should be doing all it possibly can to bring an amicable close to protesting.

This can be achieved quite easily by having entering into open dialogue, so that the growing concerns of the clubs supporter base can be eased.

Blackburn Rovers lacks leadership from the top down, whilst the owners contempt for its customer base is profoundly unacceptable. Attendances are now at an all-time low since the club became a founder member of the Premier League.

Revelations about the clubs administration is becoming a daily recurrence, whilst BRFC Action group are concerned that the players are being caught in the cross fire, when their only concern should be playing football and trying to keep our once proud club in the Premier League.

Our message to the owners is simple "Come over to Blackburn and explain to the supporters what your plans are for our club, if you have no interest in doing so then sell the club to someone who shares the same passion as the supporters. Your disrespect and contempt to those who spend so much of their disposable income on supporting their club is unforgivable".
