Validation Errors, Okay, is it me or is this a bug?

Form Validation errors.

I been pulling my hair out of this one, for the life of me I can't understand why it's doing this.

I can do a print_r(validation_errors()); in my controller This will work! I can do an echo also and it works, but if I do eiher of these two in my view file I get a blank string! How is that possible.... The only thing I can think of is that data isn't being passed to my view file, yet the validation rules are working no problem. So This is confusing.

I've read a lot of topics on here with people having the same issue and I haven't seen them solved at all.

Example of my code below only the parts that matter
$this->form_validation->set_message('required', 'Not all required fields were filled in, please try again.');
$this->form_validation->set_message('alpha_numeric', 'The Season Title Can only be Alpha Numeric Format, please try again.');
$this->form_validation->set_message('decimal', 'The Entry Fee field can only be an integet with two leading integers, and two following decimal places.');
$this->form_validation->set_message('numeric', 'The Slots field can only be a number, please try again.');
$this->form_validation->set_rules('user_id', 'user_id', 'xss_clean|required');
$this->form_validation->set_rules('season_title', 'season_title', 'xss_clean|required|alpha_numeric');
$this->form_validation->set_rules('slots', 'slots', 'xss_clean|required|numeric');
$this->form_validation->set_rules('entry_fee', 'entry_fee', 'xss_clean|required|decimal');
$data['heading'] = "New Season";
$league_temp2 = $this->leagues_model->get_league_temp2();
$data['page'] = $this->config->item('FAL_template_dir'). $league_temp2. '/new_season';
$league_temp = $this->leagues_model->get_league_temp();
$this->_container = $this->config->item('FAL_template_dir'). $league_temp;
$this->form_validation->set_error_delimiters('<h5>', '</h5>');
if($this->form_validation->run() == FALSE)
//$msg = $this->lang->line('FAL_sp_required_fields');

View File
&lt;?php echo validation_errors(); ?&gt;
