Please don't post entire stories copied from League Express on here (or anywhere else for that matter).

We rely on people buying the paper to read the stories themselves, or there'd be no League Express left for anyone to copy anything from.

Thanks.

You can be a right spoilsport at times John. 😉

A successful anyone playing in Super League would draw big (by RL standards) crowds.

Well I don't have a clue what is going on at Bradford.  So can anyone drop a hint?

Buy the LE paper marra, it's got loads of RL related stuff if that's what your looking for.

Bradford racking up CCJ's also not paying clubs their part of gate receipts from the challenge cup and the RFL having to take that money out their future funding. They are almost unsustainable as a championship team nevermind a SL one.

I did enjoy Mick Gledhill's strop about all this. 

He is just the same as when he used to post here.

Oh and I forgot about Mick Gledhill making a fool of himself calling out a couple of journalists and then blocking them when they responded.

 

Was just posting that Dave T 🤣

Hmmm... Well I know about Holbrook and all the big moves at Wigan.  And Austin put his the most influential game since he joined Wire.   I'll just have to bate my excitement. 

I buy very few if any magazines or newspapers... I sometimes buy something on a train or waiting at a hospital appointment, or read a paper at Costa. To be honest LE is not usually in my newsagents. I'm being tough I know.

Iam sure they'd order it for you or you can get it delivered through the post.

....and those CCJs are for pretty small amounts.

In truth there are a lot of magazines I could subscribe to.  Some I used to. But over time I've given them up.

Not to mention bitching about the council (again) for not being supportive (defined as giving them the ground for nothing/building a massive sporting complex for nothing/bailing out the club - you choose) and implying that the RFL could also be more flexible with their approach to leaseholding. It is all starting to smack of overspending again, isn't it?

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

To be fair unless I am missing something they have massive bargaining power with Odsal. They can basically walk away from the stadium leaving the RFL stuck with a long term lease for a crumbling stadium. The threat of that will surely be able to buy them some leeway with the rent and its hard to feel sorry for the RFL over that as they put themselves in that position.

If they walk away then I believe that the RFL lease ends by default. the council could well be very happy if that happened.

Given that the RFL has just posted a large loss for 2018-19 then I believe that Bradford's bargaining power might be less than some would think.

Ah right I didnt know that. A very sticky situation for them if that is the case.

If someone paid out RFL cash on that basis they need sacking quickly, the lease has value. Sell the land and let the council help out Bradford from the proceeds

are Bulls part full time and part part time ? The only way to survive in Championship is to be totally part time .
