Wigan has never broken the salary cap.

Really?

You shouldn't always believe everything that you read in the papers, although if you take the trouble to read that article it does tell you (amongst some untruths and non-facts) of what Wigan was found guilty.

So yes, really, Wigan has never broken the salary cap.

Sorry lads but I don't think saying 'by we had it really bad in my day' is a good thing to do and not a good yardstick to set yourself. Manchester United were once a local side, I'm sure having lost the title to Chelsea they aren't just saying 'ah well, sport is cyclical, we have had our share', they will be planning to get back up there ASAP.

Don't get me wrong, I don't expect (or even want) to win every game, I don't mind a bit of variety (would I still be here if I did?) that encompasses good times and bad but the current attitude at the Bulls just seems to be 'ah well, what will happen will happen' as though it were the weather we are talking about. We are not rich but with the players we have, we should be doing a hell of a lot better. Not neccesarily winning trophies, just not playing so ###### and losing all the time. And if we are in the mire, Mr Hood should come out and tell us 'We are skint, expect a few years in the wilderness' It would be better than pretending we are still a player.

Spot on John and that is what I'm getting at.

i'm not fully aware of the situation as regards Bradford young players, but with nothing to lose wouldn't it be a good idea for Bradford to blood some more young players, or give some more experienece to young players who might have appeared in only a few games for the Bulls?

Thats what some of us would like to see but then we said that last year....and the year before that.

I'll tell you another thing that bugs the ###### out of me about Bradford - this ludicrous wall of silence that exists over every major movement. Thus we have Robbie Paul playing his last game without any 'official' acknowledgement, or Noble leaving whilst everyone seems to pretend he isn't etc etc

And now we have a situation where they know who the new coach is yet probably won't announce it for another 5 years. :angry2::angry2::angry2:

Where do I start before my battery dies on me?

Well for one it's not just about what I've seen tonight which I can categorically say has been the worst Bradford Bulls performance since that first game back in March 1996 when we beat Castleford by 30-12 in front of over 10,000 supporters at Odsal.

The truth is and however painful it may be, is that this club is dying a slow death. Forget about Mick Potter and what the new coach will offer, the facts are that we have now had two seasons with no play-off finish.

This surely for a club the size of Bradford has to be at the bare minimum requirement with the player personal on board.

The crowds will be down again next season as people who have been following the club since the 50's, 60's and 70's turn their back on the club, meaning even less money coming into the club, to spend on players.

The players are badly underperforming, showing no effort or determination whatsoever, they don't look interested when out on the field.

We have now failed to win in nine weeks, I can't remember Northern going through such a bad patch. I'm actually ashamed to be wearing the the famous red, amber & black right now, such was the embarrassment that I've just seen.

Tonight is the night when my last ounce of confidence in Steve McNamara has gone and he should now do the right thing and just walk away and concentrate on getting England ready for the Four Nations, letting Paul Medley take over for the rest of the season, which can't come soon enough.

A Super League side should have put 40 past you

So that's Cas, Hull and Quins who in your book arent Super leasgue sides yet both have beaten the once mighty Bulls handsomely
