I guess you have a point - supporters, volunteers,etc are bottom of the pile when it comes to information that can make or break a small club like ours. We just get on with it, with heads in the sand!

What planet are you on, With JK having coached at top level, everytime there is a SL coach vacancy his name is always going to get bandied about ,so should the club have to issue a statement every time this happens? Its part and parcel of having a highly respected coach up at the mount. I'm sure JK will know what he is doing and all thoughts will be on tomorrows game rather than goings on at the Bulls and that the appropriate people know whats going on as in BOD and the players.

Just ask him after the game, he'll more than likely give you an honest answer.

Who has a point? I believe, and have posted this before, that we as a cohort of supporters are kept informed as much as any and often more than other club's supporters.
It clearly makes no sense for the club to comment on every rumour and half-truth that is placed in the media or mentioned by the bloke who we meet in the pub.

l wonder if you have an agenda here or perhaps an axe to grind against the club.
Perhaps you are the long lost stevieb who has disappeared since his rant after the Dewsbury game!

I've been one who has advocated that the club should make certain statements in the past about a number of things which have really been in the public domain, but I would also ay that if there is nothing to say, then they needn't be on here every two minutes telling us that there's nothing to say! We're now worrying about the Byron Smith transfer rumours - if they are true the club will make a statement when they feel it appropriate, just like they did last season when rumours were flying around about players leaving and coming in. Batley have always behaved like gentlemen when it comes to negotiations etc and will continue to do so. I also hope that John Kear stays, but should he be approached by The Bulls, then I am sure that the directors would give their blessing and their thanks to him for what he has done here. He has coached top flight before admittedly as a younger man and under a completely different type of game, but why shouldn't he take the opportunity to have another go? I'm sure John is keeping abreast of developments, but not letting it interfere with his job in hand, and with the upturn in our fortunes of late I'm sure he won't be too upset if he doesn't get the Odsal job.

Just to confirm that I am not stevie B or Battler, neither have I an axe to grind against the club I have supported and loved for many years . Having said all that, I have the same right to an opinion as some of you guys have.

l apologise then. However. Your 'head in the sand' comment appears to be unreasonably critical and suggestive of ignorance on the part of supporters.

Equally l cannot see anywhere on any post suggesting you are not entitled to an opinion.

What you post has no logic to it. You suggested that JK had applied for the Cas job based on what you would have done if you were JK. Colin put that argument to bed. Now you are suggesting that JK will not apply for the Bradford post because he did not apply for the aCas job! The two subjects are entirely unrelated surely other than in your fertile imagination.

If Morrison leaves Dewsbury, it's nailed on that Francis Cummins will take over from him. I'd say that'd be a pretty fair swap.

A sensational interpretation of the interview on R Leeds after the Doncaster game. He is young and ambitious however, so it would be no surprise that he fancies a coaching job in SL. That wouldn't make such a good story though, would it?

Absolutely. Still waiting for your proof that he did APPLY for the Cas job. You have a nice side step when it comes to backing up your ''facts''.Bet you were a good stand off in your day. :P :P :P

Jobs like the Cas & Bulls jobs aren't even 'applied for', you don't throw your hat in the ring......they approach who they want. Deano is talking out of his bottom.
