Levelling up - Odsal


Recommended Posts

Big bid for funds to re develop Odsal which would transform the sport - and the city.

About time too. Our sport punches well above its weight doing untold good for our communities. We don’t fight hard enough.

If the government is serious about levelling up - there surely can be not better cause than RL and Bradford. We need - as a sport - to be in the governments face over this.

No negative posts please about Bradford. This would be a huge shot in the arm for the sport.

We are owed this…

Good luck to them, even a scaled down version would be a great boost.

However I need to point out if you "levelled up" Odsal you'd lose the bowl.

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.

Sorry, I roared with laughter when I saw the pic.

 

Would be over the moon to be wrong.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Anyone who can add up should be joining the queue to take the mick out of this pile of nonsense.

Saw the thread title and thought Odsal was being levelled. Which is more likely than this redevelopment. And I’m not your usual moany defeatist.

Yep. If everyone wrote to their MP, Lindsay Hoyle and the Minister of Sport - plus of course our PM - rather than doing nothing then perhaps they'd realise this would make a difference...

Sometimes it feels like some fans really want this, and other initiatives to fail.

Here's a question, if Cardiff can have one, why can't Bradford?

Another, if they can build half a dozen in Sydney why can't Bradford have one.

How about, if other sports can get government support for a National Stadium, or even a regional one, why not Rugby League.

In other walks of life, these things are not thought of as ''pie in the sky'' or ''impossible'' or ''laughable'' they are just considered ''do-able''. Not costly white elephants but life enhancing social investments.

What I see is a widespread, cripplingly low, self esteem amongst our fans.

The overwhelming, prevailing attitude seems to be ''we don't deserve it''.

I just can't understand the mindset of people (from our fanbase) who take every opportunity to spread that message and revel in the squalor it engenders.

Because £100m doesn't buy you what's on the poster.

Nothing to do with self-esteem.

Yada yada yada

You can make all the excuses and rationalisations you like, you can try as many diversionary tactics and bring on all the sleight of hand avoidance manoeuvres you can muster.

I know it's unbearable for some people to admit it, but it's as plain as the nose on your face.

Levelling it all together sounds a better option.

Putin might be doing that for free for us before too long the way things are going

Yes mate, we might all have bigger fish to fry in a short while.

Okay, I'll make it clearer.

This would not be an impressive state of the art facility at that price.

It would be a joke of a 'stadium' done on the cheap.

Yep seems that way. Very poor, but hardly a surprise. Many RFL fans could compete at the Olympics for moaning.

Given how badly RFU seems to be running its sport: asset hiding, covid loans, HMRC not being paid - this is the time to get behind this project.

Makes you realise how badly the RFU has been run - and how RFL has protected itself.
