all right, one last go then i'll leave you alone, after all, it must be difficult to type, with your head up your backside. you cannot imagine odsal being our national r/l stadium, even though the rfl hold the lease. ok, it needs some redevelopment, which can be done over time and not overnight. you cannot imagine this stadium having an artificial pitch, a la widnes.. you cannot imagine this pitch being used by clubs other than bradford during spells of bad weather. such a pitch should be available 7 days a week. you cannot imagine a temporary ice rink (like the one they have in millenium square in leeds) being ONE alternative source of revenue out of the rugby season, and i only used this as an example. is it beyond you to come up with an alternative use. good job they didn't come to you all those years ago and suggest having speedway there and rolling up the corners of the pitch.you would have just ridiculed them. i'll go now and let you pull that to bits, after all, it's easier to be destructive than constructive.
I can imagine anywhere being rugby league's national stadium, including odsal
The problems start when you have to analyse the situation even remotely rationally
All major modern stadiums and many minor ones are multi purpose and have been for a long time: it's a no brainier,
Check out the events calendar of any major venue in the country
The issues are this
Raising the cash to build the stadium- odsal would have to be completely rebuilt and its geological issues addressed at great expense
The new stadium would then enter the already crowded market place if stadiums raising revenue by staging events
The don valley stadium has already gone belly up
Even for major rugby league games the rugby league watching public particularly from again your neck if the (back)woods won't go to rugby league events for their own pathetic reasons- see threads passim even in your clubs own 'forum'
