What did he say?

Too much!

Had hoped he was being charged over his Carney email.
One man who needs putting in his place along with his coach.

Thanks Cats and RFL.

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.

Perhaps he voted for P and R because his heart is with KR and he welcomes the cut and thrust of competition.

We came to SL through promotion and have been able to keep away from the basement places ever since and maintain a level of support many can only long for or achieve through heavy discounting.

Why would any sane supporter of Hull or Rovers welcome a merger when we have shown we can put on a show week in week out.

You keep referring to the Wigan debacle as if it was a typical result, after all we all but beat them this season and "thrashed" the league winners.

No surrender!

Agree with every word of above post, Hudgell remains committed to the club but wants others to join in with the finances.

A great chance to unearth more talent at home and abroad. Not all about winning trophies, our era will come. Just need to stay in SL and financially sound.

We continue to have our moments against the big teams such as Saints Wigan and Leeds and enjoy our awaydays. Merging with Hull is as far away as ever, we can leave that to them.
