More trouble at Bradford!

34 posts in this topic

If he'd 'been working his notice' he would hardly have stood with the others for the photo in the T&A, nor would any of the others have made the comments they did about working together and moving forward with their different responsibilities. That would have been more than a bit daft and more like making total buffoons of themselves.

 

All in all, the one thing which appears to be clear from the piece in the paper, is that all of them thought that 'that was it', all done and dusted and the club was up and running. The RFL really should have got this right first time - it's not as though they didn't take enough of it. It's yet another case to the RFL sailing full speed ahead with their bow doors open.

If he wasn't in the pics people would be asking "where's Wally Ryan?", I dunno, Bateman was in the paper a fortnight before he left saying how Langley's role would be a big one to fill. Then he buggered off.

Anyroad, 'all done and dusted'... ;)

A nice period of settlement is badly needed, too many shocks and upsets, usually every week at the moment. Looks to be the base of a good side, and while Bateman has gone he is hardly likely to be missed. 2nd row has always been one of the Bulls strengths. With the sponsorship they have coming in should be able to meet all costs this time. need to push on with season tickets where the sales have been hit due to so many shocks.

I am far more worried about Nigel Woods continued tenure at the helm of our game than anything thats happening at Bradford..

 

There have been several accounts of damage inflicted on Halifax by him and the fact he got where he is by waiting for the better man to depart before seizing control is very concerning.

 

I strongly suspect and hope the so called "rebel clubs" have recognised he needs to be got rid of and are planning to do just that ..

Hope so. It always amazes & frustrates me how these people manage to get themselves into senior positions and which faceless people are accountable for making the decision.

Come the revolution......

Absolutely nothing :)

 

But someone posted some content which caught my eye and I agreed with so I added my twopennorth.

 

Suppose I could have started another Nigel Wood thread - bbut doubt anything new would have been discussed!

Not entirely, mate to be fair.

 

The article in the paper alongside the pictures was a proper news item, specifically to announce the supposed endorsement of the new board by the RFL and the ending of special measures and not, unlike the Bateman article, just a bit of filler to put in the paper, 'cos we need a bit of Bulls stuff to pad out the back page today', and quite possibly an interview done a week or more before and held until they had room to fit it in.

 

If the club knew at the time about any problem with Ryan being a director, it would have been totally stupid to participate in such a story which was, inevitably, going to blow up in their faces and I find it hard to believe they did know. Which leads back to the RFL and their endorsement...
