That's nothing to do with rugby. Keighley hate Bradford full stop.

I think there is a certain antipathy towards the council but they're unlikely to get much of an argument from the rest of us about that either, to be honest.. B)

Nothing is ever straight forward, Bulls v Saints...

12:00 kickoff on Saturday. Game finished by 14:00. Train to London at 15:00. King's Cross by 18:00.

Either that or play the game on Thursday or Monday. If there's people wanting to make a weekend of it at Wembley, they may well be wanting to go straight from work on Friday night anyway

I know my bro has an overnight travel package, he may have told me the details but I've forgotten.

For me, Halifax were always a rival but not the rival. Over the years, I have often been to watch them midweek or when the Bulls have not been playing.


Just seen the Fax squad for 2013. I think they'll do well and I'll make the effort to go and see them a few times.

I think the RFL are right on this one. Shouldn't clash with WCC. Saturday would seem a reasonable compromise.

I agree it shouldn't. And my preference would be Saturday. However if the club deem it to be financially damaging then they should plead their case further. As mentioned before, it's only this freak occurance which has forced the issue.

Anyhoo, whenever the game is played, put all your money on Saints... I can't help think we'll be on the end of a hiding that particular game, as a gentle reminder.

Disappointing article for a few things.

Firstly, why focus on any negatives at all at your media launch? What good can come of this.

Secondly, it would seem there was a fair bit of goodwill to his club when they held off signing the players, donated gate takings, and even made an offer to purchase the club to keep them alive. He perhaps shouldn't forget that.

After everything the bull fans went through this is really poor form by the new owner.


It's greed from Omar, that's my opinion and I'm sure people will agree.

Bulls have been helped by their own fans, rival fans, ex players donatations, chairperson giving their own cash and then some clubs giving bulls part of the gate....... Sorry but Omar is out of order on this.


I still wish bulls (the ones on here and hope bulligerent returns to the forum) all the best, I just wish Omar kept shut.

Am I the only one who supports Omar on this? Having the financial hit of losing the SKY money for this season is bad enough, but for the other clubs to distribute it amongst themselves is another financial kick.

What a way to support a club coming out of financial difficulties. Cut their income and make sure everybody else gets more money.

Don't forget, Super League is staring into the financial abyss. Can you blame clubs for taking the extra cash?

Please don't take this the wrong way.... at least you've got a club playing in super league!!!!
Did you think you'd have a club in SL midway through last year??
The SL family helped Bradford in a time of crisis.

Great point - I'd like to know which three clubs were happy to share the money.



Question - Is Omar worried he needs more bums on seats / through the turnstyle for the new season??

This is my initial thought - Is he / was he depending on the cash?? does this mean he may need more new sponsors or have to put more of his own wealth into the club.

He wasn't/isn't depending on the cash because it was announced day one he took over that we weren't getting it

Do we know why they aren't getting it is it simply a punishment for going into administration. Or is it to repay the money the previous regime had early to make sure they saw out the season. If its the first then the money should of gone to the RFL to invest in the game. If its the second reason I think the other clubs are well within their rights to want that money back

The money they were advanced was the Sky money up to the end of 2012 I think, so as it stands Bradford have had no more money from Sky than any other SL club.

I believe originally the reduction in Sky money was offered as a good will gesture to speed up getting the club out of administration. As such OK knew this was very likely to happen from day one, so it's poor form. Of course, being a press day I don't think he'll have brought it up of his own accord, more a cheeky wag has asked him "how are you coping without the Sky money". Of course, you wouldn't report that, much better to put he's gone off on one by himself.

Actually on the point above, yes I agree with you - I'd rather see the money spent on promotion of the Super League so that everyone can still benefit.
Interestingly, the article states £1m - I thought it was only half of the money that was being withheld - is this just shoddy journalism?

The point I disagree with is Khan speaking publicly about this to the media - I don't think it helps anyone, and tbh if I was an owner of another club, I'd be pretty annoyed with him publicising this kind of thing.
