    Pig Match Beam back

    Is this a possibility now we've sold out our allocation or is it in the too difficult to do box? Would solve a lot of complaints the club are currently getting on twitter about priority points systems, phone lines being engaged, online sales being slow and poor communication about remaining tickets. Match looks close to a sell out now.

    Demand was always going to outstrip supply bearing in mind there hasn't been a derby for 6 years. Would be disappointed if both clubs haven't already discussed this as a possibility for both games.

    Cue the long list of excuses why it can't be done. I'll start with we haven't got enough time now to organise it.

    They were never goin to do it cos it's on sky so people can watch it where ever at home in the pub where ever they want they asked fans if they would go down to BDTBL and watch in the platinum suites but response was muted so I think they decided against it

    Thanks for response Bulmer. There is a difference between being amongst 10k blades in the ground generating an atmosphere like we did for the Northampton game last season and a few hundred watching it in a suite drinking warm p*ss at 3.80 a pint. Pigs got 11k in their North Stand for a beam back when they last won at BDTBL, thanks Mr Blackwell for that, sure that game was on Sky as can remember them referring to the Pigs back at the Sty when they scored. Not convinced Blades have made much of an effort in considering that this was an option for fans who wanted to go to the game.

    No beam back for the Pigs but they're considering one for the Florist away game as they've sold out the allocation already. 70%say yes on attached poll. Would be good for those of us that have just missed out on tickets again.

    Also in response to tweets about this SUFC have said that they were never allowed the chance to do a beam back for the Pig match because Sky televised games are not allowed this facility. Rules must have changed sure many years ago Pigs did one when it was at the Lane and it was televised.
