they didn't make any such promise, thereby saving the leeds city council tax payer the cost of a white elephant


Sport Leisure and Culture in the Post Modern City. Chapter 8 " Dreams of Parkside and Barley Mow " P 161 by Karl Spacklen

" Hunslet argued that the council had agreed to expand the stadium if Hunslet ever reached SL but the RFL ignored Hunslet. The RFL's seemingly unjust decision led many Hunslet supporters to argue that the decision was influenced by the close realtionship between people at the RFL and Headinglet Stadium"

the key is 'seemingly unjust', as opposed to 'unjust'

it was a wise decision in the wider interests of thre council tax payers of Leeds who would have been forking out for this white elephant long after Hunslet had gone down the gurgler: sounds prudent andf 'just' enough to me.

It seems sensiblr for the council to consult the governing body, who would have known more than amnyone about the club's prospects. What should the RFL have dsaid to the Council? Go ahead waste thre tax payuers money because we all love Hunslet?

Who should they have consulted: The Hawks?

Be that as it may, the council had agreed to upgrade the stadium and then reneged. It was your unequivocal declaration that the council never agreed any such thing. You were wrong.

there's no be that as it may about it.

Who made the agreement from the council? Who at the club accepted it?

Such an agreement for such an expenditure would have had to be agreed upon and decided by the council as a body. They clearly and rightly said no...assuming this ridiculous idea got as far as the council in the first place.

If an individual gave the club an assurance he/she had no right to.

Nobody reneged

You had better tell that to Mr Sprackln. He wrote the book and I am sure he checked his facts before he published.

did he say who gave the assurance and to whom?

If such an assurance was made then it can't have been given officially by the council for reasons I have given, and if it was made the person who made it was behaving highly irresponsibly.
Thank goodness this waste of public money never came to pass.
