This doesn't look good for them at all, I wonder if anyone else will step in to take them over?

I think what Phildog may be saying is "Why do Bradford deserve anything other than what's coming to them?"
Sad for the supporters and the heritage of the game, of course, but if the club has catastrophically overspent in relation to monies coming in, what more should be done by the RL "Community" (and I guess that means folk like you and me)?
Those who dropped a few coins into the "Save Halifax" buckets perhaps may feel obliged to do similar for Bradford, but it wasn't all that long since many did. When does it stop?
From a Bulldog financial point of view, it may be beneficial for Bradford to survive, but be relegated into the Championship (providing, of course we don't ourselves get relegated) - the Bulls will bring more supporters (cash) through the turnstiles than London or the French (although personally I'd much prefer the latter to be relegated).
Not much we can do, however, other than watch and wait.

Sorry, don't care, let 'em go to the wall, the RL would already have said as much if it had been a championship club. They've had 19 years of Sky money, world club championship etc etc and can't get it together. No more RL money, sink or swim, that goes for London too, and now that the french clubs have backed out of the Challenge Cup, don't EVER invite them again and yet the RL and loud voices are advocating bringing another French club (Toulouse) into SL. How many times and ways can I say this....NO NO NO NO NO.....
That's a very bitter rant Phildog. Did you forget to include Lancashire clubs, Humberside clubs, Dewsbury, the Welsh and Australia too?
