Bad new for Wakefield and Dewsbury

Can they not just scrap the current main sponsor and get a new one? Although it would pee a lot of fans off I'd imagine.

How the chuff can a small company like that run up a bill of £21m owed to the revenue? Honestly you've just got to marvel at some people who swan around giving largesse whilst behind the scenes, they've got less brass than me!!

Indeed

Hasn't the main man behind the company (Jonathan France?) got previous for this kind of thing in Eric France's previous incarnation?

The sponsorship was rubbish and should have been scrapped a long time ago, they now need a big magnate to pick up the pieces and bring in a lot of brass to iron out the problems.

SORRY.

Hope Wakefield's improvement as a club isn't crushed by this.

I guess you also have to marvel at HMRC getting themselves into a situation where they are owed such a large sum of VAT. No wonder the country is in a financial mess if the people charged with collecting taxes are apparently so rubbish at doing so.

Let me get this right? Any number of the more beligerent of the Wakey fans played merry hell when Bulls teamed up with Provident Financial. You'd have thought we'd sold our souls to the devil.

Now it transpires that Wakey have been taking money from a business that has just - according to reports - taken the taxpayer for £21m.

"To Accept Sponsorship" must be another of those irregular verbs? "I accept perfectly valid commercial sponsorship"; "You (directed at Bradford fans) are content to accept money from a nasty nasty evil business"; "He/she/it (when directed at Bradford) has made a pact with the devil".

Yes, yes we all were complicit in the fact that France avoided tax. It’s true that some of the Trinity fans questioned the morals of a pay day loan company whilst secretly knowing that the main sponsor was plotting the downfall of the UK economy.

Dear me.

By all means point out the hypocrisy, I've yet yo see it. All you've done is made yourself look precious, kind of like the last time you threw a hissy fit when people questioned the iconic stadium guff early last year.
