The problem we have this season is that most teams will have already started talks with players by the end of August 2013. Most teams will have been picked and probably training by mid September. We on the other hand had no Coach at the end of the season and did not appoint the new coach until the 10th of October.

The stranglehold on the Raiders finances means that teams with less than half the fans through the gate can afford more expensive players.

Its a massive gamble for the BOD, what do they do bring more expensive players in (from what's left out there)and hope for more through the gates to finance them or accept were we are probably going to be come next season and start looking at what's required next year.

The prospect of going down next year needs to be carefully looked at as if we do will the number of fans drop to a level which cannot pay the scheduled debts off together with players wages ?.

We only have a third of the original BOD left and the task they have is extremely difficult IMO. Turning the clock back 2 seasons ago yes the BOD could have done things a lot different but we are were we are and lets hope that things turn around fast.
