The Lancashire Telegraph has banned any paid advertisements for Reg of the Rovers website.
In a draconian act of censorship, Editor Kevin Young has banned “Reg”, despite having advertised since the website was created in December 2010, the telegraph editor has issued instructions that Reg is banned from advertising in the pages of the Blackburn based newspaper.
I have not spoken to the editor directly, his instructions were passed onto me by a member of his advertising staff citing a “conflict of interest” whatever that means?
I have been very critical of the new owners since they took over the club; their running of the club has been met with ridicule from all sections of the media, except the Lancashire Telegraph. My criticism has been echoed by many supporters in addition to the National Press so I am not alone voice. I just want to know what is happening to my beloved Blackburn Rovers.
The cull of Blackburn Rovers excellent administration staff continues.
The latest victim is long serving financial director and company secretary Martin Goodman.
Goodman has followed ex-chairman John Williams and chief executive Tom Finn through the Ewood Park exit, with the Rao’s running affairs within their family.
Amongst the thousands of followers to the Reg Website, I have a large proportion of critics who do not agree with my extreme views since the takeover of Blackburn Rover’s by the Venky group, on the other hand a large proportion agree with the majority of my views.
This is good, I have achieved what I set out to do and that is create debate and passion about the “New” Blackburn Rover’s Regime.
Steve Kean just does not help himself does he?
He has been at it again, employing mouth before engaging brain. His latest words of wisdom are “champions league football In 3 years and a top 10 premiership finish season”
I myself personally would be quite happy and relieved, not to say amazed, at finishing out of the bottom five, however to cut to the chase.
Reg has received some criticism at my objections to Kean being manager of Blackburn Rovers; suffice to say I have also received lots of support for my views.
With a new season upon us I am now prepared to make the offer.
