Stop trying to blame the RFL for Bradford's mess. They are trying to sakvage something for the players who are blameless in all of this.

And just where did I blame the RFL for Bradfords mess???

All of the consequential problems are down to Bradford. The RFL are trying to rescue something from a dreadful situation and, as per normal, are now the target of every fans ire.

They are not encouraging clubs to overspend as you suggested  -  they are waiving the salary cap regulations for the recruitment of a small specific group of players. It is up to those responsible for running their clubs to ensure that they can afford such signings.


Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

The RFL seem damned if they do and damned if they don't........... For what it's worth, I think they've taken the most positive steps they could to try and keep a Bradford club as a potentially attractive proposition, by keeping them in the Championship, but at the same time have imposed sanctions which will make it very difficult, but not impossible, for next season. A fighting chance at least -- Which Bradford, in their hey-day, gave us by playing regular well-attended friendlies at the season's start.  They are trying to look after the players and staff left stranded through no fault of their own by making 'exceptions' which will hopefully help them to find employment elsewhere, whilst at the same time placing the onus on clubs to 'spend within their means'.  The only team possibly equipped to compete in the Championship is Toronto but imagine the outcry if they were given an immediate place in the Championship.

Yes, it's a nonsense that Bradford are in this mess (of their own making) but can the game really afford to lose a big city club and the potential spectators that offers ?

Despite the obnoxious idiot at last year's Challenge Cup game ("Come on Bulls, put this lot in their place") I hope that the Bradford club can be rescued and go on from strength to strength in a sustainable, sensible manner............The game, IMO, needs them !
