To my pal DNK I would have been disgusted if our case for opposing P and R was self interest, not wishing to put our status at risk. We have as much responsibility for the hopes of Leigh Featherston Halifax etc.
Attendances at Hull are on the slide but so is the economy and the team. Rovers have maintained a level over recent years, there are still 7500 plus who love to watch the team, regardless of where we sit in the league table.Get Hull back on song and you will see 14000 crowds again without impacting on the Robins.
If we keep trading players in the market, selling at a premium to todays rich teams, we have every chance of regaining our place in the top 4 elite. Its called astute management.
With a much improved stadium facility, a much improved youth system and stable financial leadership we will soon be there. You don't have to have 6 players in the Dream Team to win a play off game after all.
Hudgell has explained that Rovers were not willing to negotiate before April next year on an extension ie lets see how he starts in 2015 another year older. Burns has a second child on the way and realises he is reaching the autumn of his career. He wanted long term security on a top wage which is to his benefit but only time will tell for his club.
Rovers let him test the market and are committed to reinvesting the transfer fee and spending up to the cap next season.
Good business again methinks. Not too late to replace given that the season is still running here and in Aus.
