Latest news is that Jarrod Sammut has left Bradford for the financial tranquility of Wakefield.

 

Good job that we've got a stronger squad this year I believe.

Now reading about the latest from Odsal we should be thankful that we aren't expecting anything from DR this season.

Bradford's own doing, can't say I care. The money grabbers have done it to them selves and then have cheek to have a go at the rfl for deducting them points when the rfl bent over backwards to help them last season. If the bulls do go bust, this could be big for the rams as we may get our dewsbury born and bread bulls supporters supporting there own club, especially if we keep winning matches and playing well. Can't see the bulls surviving this but I hope the rfl stick to there guns and don't get blackmailed by the potential new owners into scrapping the bulls points deduction. Don't like no club going under but the rfl community raised thousands to save the bulls, the rfl even purchased odsal to save it, they wouldn't do that for us or nobody helped us when we was in need and the bulls fans wouldn't give a monkeys if it was us. No sympathy from me, sorry to be harsh but it couldn't have happend to a better club! ( although I wish the bulls players all the best in getting paid and finding new clubs)

From what it says on the Totalrl News page the potential new owners who have withdrawn from the deal with the Administrator are suggesting that the new set up was to be a completely different club, with new owners and new management, and as it wouldn't be related to the old organisation in any way the points deduction shouldn't be applied.

 

Fine, so rejoin the league in Championship 1 and work your way up, like other potential new members of the league have to do.

 

I don't take any pleasure in the demise of any club in the Rugby League, but this assumption of a divine right to be where they are rankles a bit. There will be others besides myself who are old enough to remember that this isn't the first time Bradford have been in this position.

Can`t understand anyone kicking up a fuss over this?? If you go into administration its to help clear the debts and stabilise finances because you are no longer able to look after yourself... It doesn`t matter how long it takes for a buyer to come in. The fact is that over a prolonged period of time you spent above your means... If a person gets themselves a CCJ on the Tuesday because they couldn`t afford repayments on a loan agreement then wins 5 million on the lottery on Wednesday so can pay the repayments should the CCJ be annulled? No... The fact of the matter is they overspent chasing "the dream" A little bit of Rugby League history for you.... The only reason Bradford have a professional rugby league team is because the rest of the Northern Union clubs rallied round after the original club left the Northern union to join the newly professional and more lucrative Football League... The original Bradford played in claret and amber amd are now known as Bradford Park Avenue... they completed the first season due to the rest of the Northern Union rallying round with donations, us donating our team kit from the previous season... that`s why they were called Bradford Northern and why they play in red Amber and Black. So hard done by?? I don`t think so... the rest of the rugby league world has done enough to keep them alive already.... End of rant

Not one to kick a bull while it's down

But

They went into administration

And came out.. With the New board

which resulted in a 6 point deduction

My point

With the New board pulling out...

The club are in the hands of the administrator's again

So not wanting to sound picky

But shouldn't that mean another points deduction for going back into the hands of the administrator??

As I said on another thread

It clearly said the bulls had gone into and come out of administration

And was in the hands of New owners

After been hit with a 6 point penalty (for me justified)

Resulting with the New owners pulling out

and now been run by the administrator's while a new buyer is found

So their back in administration and should result in another points deduction

This looks an ideal situation for the fans of thye club to take it over. That has to be the future of sport, clubs run by the fans for the fans!

No, as the deal never went through they are still in the same state of administration, so only one penalty. Finding new owners is going to be the tricky part.

 

By the way DTID the RFL didn't bail out Bradford by buying Odsal but were actually very astute in converting the debt that Bradford owed to them into the leasehold of Odsal. Had they not done this then they would now be looking at an unpaid debt as distinct from owning a potentially valuable lease. When we had our problems we never asked for help from the RFL or anyone else, hence none was forthcoming.

The other original Bradford club were Manningham and played at Valley Parade. They eventually converted to soccer in 1903 and became known as Bradford City. The other Bradford NRU club indeed became Bradford PA in 1907.

 

There is no connection at all between either of these clubs and Bradford Northern, pre or post 1963.

No. See the other thread.

Given that the likes of London and Wakefield cut costs drastically to avoid administration, it would not be fair to not deduct 6 points from the Bulls. They were deducted 6 points last time and 6 points this time, so no surprises there.

Piggy in a utopian society i would agree with you but in reality it does not work for various reasons . thirty years ago there were many members clubs in pro rugby league but now there are non . i suppose if the fans who ran the clubs were very wealthy then it would work ok but the game does not have enough money in it for clubs to be run by committees of loyal but non wealthy fans .

I would have thought this would galvanize

Their team to succeed in avoiding relegation

Its not 6 it's now 4

London Home and away its then 0

I fancy them to come third bottom above

London and Wakefield

;)

I would agree, provided that they don't lose all of their best players in the next few weeks. Someone has to pay their wages, after all.

Francis Cummins has already said that the vultures are circling his club and that he fears losing some players before long. There's not much that they can do to stop it if there's no money available and things are actually looking as bleak for the club as they were in 1963.

He means Francis of course.

The Bulls players are due to be paid today according to their most famous season ticket holder, Duncan Preston (as heard on R Leeds this morning). Wonder who is going to pay them and from which pot?
