Whilst Col Dale may have the interest of both clubs at heart, I think it would have been more honest of him to inform the Dale fans that Hornets have paid their rent , and I believe upfront, for every season since their inception. He could also do us all a favour and inform the Dale fans that the RFL. received the shares as collateral for the loan the old board took out from them, if the loan is not repaid then the shares are kept by them.
Was the money for Dale to buy the shares from the RFL and the Council coming via a Council loan?
To be fair to Col his priorities, opinions and attitudes may differ from yours and mine but I've never known him to misrepresent, omit or deny any relevant facts to an argument.
He's just an interfering bloke who supports Dale.
