We had special treatment in a positive sense to help us out of the mess, now we're having special treatment in the negative sense since the mess has been resolved.

 

I'm of the opinion to just keep me nut down, limp through the next two seasons and then hopefully come out of it stronger. I'm yet to convinced by the new management but perhaps I'm being overly cautious.


If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

I'm hoping to get an email address off of someone so that I can write to the RFL. Tried the RFL site, only gives an email address for enquiries/directions.

It makes no sense that we will only have half the sky money for yet another year, if the RFL really do want what's best for the game they have no choice but to give us what they give every other team in Super League the FULL sky money. It's holding back the club and especially when on the last year of licenses we will not be playing on a level playing field, the RFL could be the demise of the Bulls and we need a strong Bradford in Super League.

Although on my own, I can do nothing. I'm calling on you to do the right thing and join me. Not just Bulls fans but all fans of the game.


It's 10 minutes of your time for a club/game most have supported for the majority of their lives. If enough people get behind this I honestly think it could make a real difference.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.


Do you actually think you would get a reply that was honest...??

We've all got accept that, as supporters of our clubs and the game as a whole, there will sometimes be poor decisions made by people that control the sport.

We pay our money as we choose whilst, at the same time, taking the rough with the smooth.

At Bradford you had it good for a long time while some of us were being relegated but teams with less points were being protected. Was that fair?

What Widnes, Halifax & Fev have endured amounts to having your teeth kicked in. Was that fair?

I've got my frustrations but I'm going to make a 300 mile round trip at the weekend to hopefully see my boys get a rare win against a Saints side that are finding it heavy going right now - it's the nature of sport as its always been and probably always will be..

As wise Hindle states - keep your head down, work through it & come out stronger

While you're at it why not also write to the owners of the many small businesses who were owed money by the Bulls and explain to them how unfair it all is ?

Think you'll find we are. The new board can't be blamed for the shambles of the last.

Indeed they can't. However, forgive if I don't cry for an entity that took money from schools and hospitals.

I'm disappointed that it was two years rather than one, but I'm also happy we have a club and think to a point we should just take it on the chin and look to the future positively.

The biggest wrong out of all of this was where our money went. It should have been used to develop the wider game, instead the SL clubs decided to share it out amongst themselves. That, in my opinion, was a really poor on the part of the SL.

Agree with this.

Very, very fair comment. I get fed up with clubs spending more than they can afford and then having supporters whinging about how unfair it all is because their poor old club can't afford decent players any more and they're losing games.

Think instead about the great service they're doing for the game. Someone has to lose in order that others may win !!

Agreed. And players wages went up far too much in 1995. Admittedly, they needed some certainty of income if they were going to go full time but the proverbial pudding was over-egged. Directors got a bit giddy, I think.
