    True. For me being a supporter of this club for half a century it’s always the same story.Just when you think the Club is smelling of roses and as supporters we are happy with the Clubs stability a debt bombshell is revealed from nowhere.Its just like the wife turning round to you and saying “ or by the way we owe £40,000 and they are on about taking our house off us “.Dont get me wrong it seems it’s not panic stations and we have been in far worse situations than this but where is the transparency and why paint a different picture by the club when we go to the meetings.

    England v France this Wednesday

    For me if it’s possible I would try and secure a a deal with some TV channel to broadcast at least one live Championship match per week.Only then will people who Maybe haven’t been to a Rugby League match see how exciting most of our games in the Championship are and may be persuaded to do go to one and boost attendances.

    I’m not referring to the impact angle but how Sky feels about RL coverage and we will have to disagree about If you think this football tournament is of any importance but it’s pretty obvious what Sky think of Rugby League especially the Championship when having rights to show our matches,they don’t even bother.I have had to explain to a lot of my work mates what this football competition is about as they have no idea and not many like myself who are sporting mad are bothering to watch it and Sky are not even bothered to show an international match of Rugby League ,all I’m trying to get over is within all this bland football that they are showing every day I think there is room for a RL International.Out of curiosity Robin being honest how many of those football games apart from Spain v England have you sat down and fully watched and secondly would you like to watch England RLFC v France live tonight ?I know I and many others would.

    Agree.We always shoot our selves in the foot and I believe the game would appeal to a lot of people as France 🇫🇷 seem to be a tough dirty adversary but hey ho I will have to watch kazakstan v Somalia can’t wait 😊
  7. On Wednesday England play France at Leigh Sports Village as the warm up match before the Autumn Test series against New Zealand.I have Sky Sports etc and realised they and the BBC are not showing it and if I am not mistaken you can only watch it being streamed .All this meaningless Football Internationals that no one gives a toss about has been shown for nearly two weeks and once again it shows how no one is bothered to show our Rugby to viewers .What a joke!.

    Just to offer people who don’t know what an acre is .An acre of land is roughly a football/Rugby pitch including its in goal areas.Can you imagine how many £150 000 plus houses you can build on this , well times that by 18 and that’s what we posess. Like Colin says I think a bad picture will be painted of our future and option C is the only option to vote for.I have given it much thought today and agree with Monkey magic that we haven’t got the funds or even the energy to persue planning permission and have resigned myself to option C going through. As in any other business which I have mentioned before;whoever has mis managed our finances need sacking as this is what happens to staff at MOST companies.

    I hope this doesn’t happen; If vote C is voted in and we start receiving the funds , MC says he is entitled to x amount because he has put x amount previously into the Club ( which he rightly may have ) , Takes it out , buggers off to York leaving us without a pot to p### in.

    Do we owe the Tax man?,as there is only one winner if we do. If not would it make more sense to pay our creditors a minimum payment ( which I believe you can legally do)until we can pay them off in full and in the meantime try to get planning permission for if we do and even if it takes a few years our Club would be financially stable for the next two decades.

    Dual Reg scenario for next year

    It wouldn’t surprise me if Dewsbury or Batley beat us next year on the pitch.But taking Colin’s point about running your Club as a buisiness, I would give you this example; If I was a rich buisiness man like the Toronto billionaire with no loyalties to any Rugby Club and willing to bank roll a Club in the Championship appeared I believe he would only look at three realistically that being Bradford because being a City and with a good support base , Fax for being a biggish Club with a decent set of supporters who have had some success in the past and Fev who have a decent set up and a hardcore set of supporters.If you disagree you sell Dewsbury to me .

    Dual Reg scenario for next year

    It’s hard to know where to start really but here goes; A better Stadium ( owned ) , better Training facilities ( owned ) , Land worth millions that we are considering cashing in on to make us possibly the strongest Team in the Championship,better buisiness coming in i.e sponsors money , use of the Stadium money coming in etc , best volunteers who constructed two stands for us, twice as many supporters turning up , better players on the field. My father used to tell me that Dewsbury had a half decent side when that dispicable person Stevo played for them ( the one that wanted his beloved Dewsbury to merge with your enemy Batley) but I can’t remember myself as I was going to Infant school at the time.Any way keep taking the tablets for your delusion. All the best. If there’s anything else I’ve forgotten to list please feel free to post them
