The Fox Sports article contains the following passage:

"Despite Bradford declaring they wanted to see him play out his contract, the 32-year-old is reportedly keen to return to the NRL, where he is believed to be chasing a two-year deal. "

So it offers further evidence that Orford does want to go back to Australia!


Does it male genitals. Its the same one bit of paper talk male genitals continually regurgitated. And it fails to quote properly what the Bulls statement said, which would show that comment in a totally different light.

As it happens, I am reliably informed that Orford's agent specifically told the club a bit ago - when he met with them over another of his clients - that the stories were garbage. And he would stand to gain if they were not.

As I said, you are totally and utterly incapable of providing any evidence whatsoever of Orford ever saying that.

Either provide some evidence or just shut up, eh?

Look mate, I have no idea whether he'll be back or not, but he says he will be. You really can't keep asking him to re-confirm it every time some junk source says he doing this, that or the other. Getting 'news' from Fox is as useless as reading something in the Sun; unreliable at the very very best, and just accepting it as true is just laughable to be honest.

Its as accurate as an articlye from over 6 weeks ago saying he's in for the long haul.

Questions include -

Why is he in Australia recovering?

A contract is easily negotiable - plus it would get him off Bradford's wage bill rather than playing 12/30 odd games.

What makes the T&A (rofl) any more reputable than the SMH or Fox?

If you really think such as Fox are reliable 'news' outlets then I'll mark you down as an even more unreliable poster than I thought. rolleyes.gif

The day that the Dulls fans wake up and smell the coffee and realise they've been taken for a ride by Orford, the better.

If they;'re really stuck, im sure Cas would loan them their 3rd choice scrum-half for the rest of the season?

The Bradford journalists -- if that is what the T & A writers consider themselves -- are so damned lazy.

In 8 hours from now I will call some journalist friends in Australia to see if they know anything solid about Orford and his attitude to Bradford.

Ill have the surgery and then Ill be relying on my parents to do simple stuff like drive me around while I recover. Thats a big reason why Im going home.


Makes sense if he's over here on his own with no support network to help out.

Attention-seeking trolls like "Paris SurTout" and NE are the principal reason I rarely post on here. I know numerous other people who say the same. If John Drake could come up with some algorithm that examines posts and identifies the characteristics of an attention-seeking troll, and then deletes them - ideally with the author as well - I bet the traffic on the site would increase significantly.

Not just a problem here, of course.

Maybe a bazooka would be an alternative?

Coincedentally, I wonder how long it will be before Webby comes on here wittering about putting people on ignore. Blah, blah, blah. Yawn. He should stick to writing the unfunny Red Hall Diaries. He isn't a good Webmaster anymore...

In this case, the fact that their piece actually includes an interview and quotes from the man himself, something i have so far failed to see in any of the Australian articles. Still, when has anything factual ever got in the way of your laughable, irony free musings eh?
