The difference with Elliott is in his statements to the press, where he clearly doesn't think the club is good enough, not going in the right direction, etc, plus whatever might have been said in the privacy of the dressing rooms..

 

I might have missed this, but has Elliott made any statement to the press? I thought it was all via Cummins which is an important distinction as we haven't heard it from the horse's mouth.

I was chatting with one of the Bulls directors during the Academy game yesterday and he said the reason Whitehead wants out is he doesn't get on with Franny Cummins.

He also said Whitehead's agent was the one pushing him to hand in the transfer request and they think he's already sorted out another club but they didn't know who his agent had been talking to.

RLMeltdown is lazy, predictable and pointless. Not to mention cowardly (I really can't be doing with Internet heroes hiding behind a pseudonym).

Why doesn't the bed-wetter behind this account come out of his hiding place and post some actual opinions of his own?

Completely agree - ditched following that after about 2 days.

I find Gav Wilson's over the top retweeting and replying to it almost cringeworthy - are the 2 related?
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Agreed, I actaully quite like Andy Wilson's feed.  He's improved considerably over the years as an RL writer, although he does tend to occasionally muddy my timeline with union stats from Opta.

 

One of the most pointless is Tanya Arnold's, completely sterile and so clinically uncontroversial it's a wonder why she bothers.

It may well have been, though I read it in the press, so I don't really know, to be honest.

Oh it can - anyway I don't want to ruin the thread, I've already swayed a little off topic
