April gets earlier every year!

Lets hope the mascot is confined to home games and is not intending to travel, otherwise at various clubs it'll spend all it's time in the car.

Funnily enough, we don't really care if you're not excited by it.  The 150 M&J's who turned up loved him. He's named Trickey the Mutt after one of our club legends Richard Trickey.
He's part of our long term strategy of going into primary schools in the area as well as getting mums and dads down to games on a Saturday and he'll make appearances on Sunday at training for the tag age groups.  I too hope your club doesn't bother.  Have a great Christmas,

It’s sad that this "good news" story is, for me, overshadowed by the sad demise of Sake's 2nd XV

Great response Mike - nothing like playing it cool. All the best for 2018.

Its a great idea for the kids.  Adults get all huffy about it, but the children genuinely love it.  At the end of the day, there are only a handful of rugby clubs in this country who pack their grounds every game.  Anything we can do to encourage more people to come along is brilliant and the 1500+ that turned up on Saturday definitely seemed to have a good time.
Have a wonderful Christmas one and all.

As an adult I have no objection to mascots, as you say anything to entertain the future supporters cannot be a bad thing

Thanks R999 the only positive remark on the mascot subject. The delight on the faces of the kids when he was unveiled was great to see and set the mood for a brilliant day for the club....rugby included....what a hammer and tongs game for both sides. I do get the jealousy thing about the club and the money thing I read on here all the time, but anything that adds to the experience of a game of rugby must be a good thing surely.

I should really have said "some adults".  The mascot is for supporters (no matter what their age), but it's really more for the future players, he'll be going into local primary schools with our community coach, going to birthday parties, social events and representing the club out and around Trafford, the idea being he brings recognition to a club that is in the heart of football country.

 The reality is, some people prefer to whine about stuff and forget that rugby is supposed to be a game where people come together as families and have fun, where players all gather afterwards and add ten yards to every run with the ball and every tackle was slightly bigger than before.  Sadly some people just like to hide behind their keyboard and make snide remarks.  I'll be honest, we are trying to build something at Sale, we are investing in the M&J section and our facilities by putting things in place that will last us another 156 years, not just the next two seasons.  We have made mistakes and we will make loads more, the difference is, we're learning from them and moving forward, not whinging about them and standing still.  BTW this mascot was fully funded by the M&J section through raffles, cake sales, social events and BBQ's, so every club could do it if it's compatible with their vision for the future.

I do hope Sale FC's mascot behaves better than 'Sharky' did at Edgeley Park, making improper jestures behind the very young girl Cheerleaders.
What if the Hokey Kokey really IS what it's all about?

What does that even mean?  a) we have strict safeguarding protocols in place b) when was that? 10+ years ago? did you report it? c) We're not Sale Sharks so different club, different mascot different era.

As a dog lover I love to see "well behaved "dogs of any sort allowed into the ground. I remember travelling 150 miles to
Wigton Rugby Club to watch Yorkshire U20s play only to be told you will have to keep your dogs in the car.
Next week at Wharfedale against Lancashire, dog bowls all around and at least 30 dogs there
Whatever rugby clubs can do to get spectators into the ground is fantastic.
Yes Jimbojetset I think this could be something that M&Js could pick up all around loads of clubs.
Great idea,

Slight discrepancy between your estimation of a 1,500+ attendance and the 546 crowd stated in The Rugby Paper on Sunday - although given the regular typos in The Rugby Paper, it wouldn't surprise me if they got it wrong.

Given that we had 175 sit down to lunch and the bar upstairs was full as well as the bar downstairs an hour before the game, we also had 150 minis and juniors in attendance, I'd suggest that the pulled from the sky figure of 546 is a figment of someone's imagination. To be honest I have no idea who gives our figures to the Rugby paper but whoever it is, doesn't know how to count.  We don't charge members or under 16's so they may just be talking about those paying on the gate, but even then not sure how they'd get that figure without asking the club.

Great idea,

Kendal's new Mint Bridge ground has a strict no dogs rule. A couple of our unsuspecting supporters were directed to the narrow road passing the corner of the pitch and watched the game over the low hedge. I might add they paid for admission!

It could possibly merit its own thread - Are Dogs Allowed ?
 
Sandal welcome dogs to come down on match days !
 
It would be a good idea for clubs to state it clearly on the websites to prevent dogs making the journey if they cant watch the game.

Dogs who don't defacate are okay but birches cause lots of problems to the grass therefore easier to say no dogs rather than having someone do sex checks on the gate
