I've been a fan of the Bulls for 13 years now, however I've been a real fan game for about 6 years, from then on it didn't matter what Bradford did, I'd watch the game and appreciate both teams.

However this was underlined with still wanting Bradford to prevail. Enjoying the game but not really caring of the opposition's fortunes. And I suspect most fans feel the same, it's only natural.

But no longer, this dismal run of form my team are in has made me empathise with any other team to suffer this misfortune. In the past I've thought 'poor Salford/Catalans/whoever', but only in passing.

For any other team currently in a bad vein of form, you have my sympathies!

And for any team who may end up with a ###### season, I won't mock! Even if it was Leeds! Schadenfreude free zone (well done Catalans today).

Anyhoo less of a rant, more of a pathetic whine...

*sigh*

fair enough,


now, can we please have a group hug for being fabulous people?



thanks biggrin.gif


Oh wait, apart from Sam, he was all hands at Bolton some time ago.

Even as a Wire I am sorry but Westwood is nowhere near as skillful as Super Sam or Ellis.

Wazza's main industrys are service industries, call centres, warehouses and the public sector nowadays. All three are under threat from the Tory cuts.

there aren't many who can't empathise - if any

We were saying earlier - when your teams doing bad, they need you more than ever - and you have to admire Wigans fans when they had a bad season and their attendance went up or at least never suffered, seige mentality
