It’s a niche sport and always will be in this country, the point in sport is about merit attained on the field not some ridiculous point scoring system that makes no sense to anyone. Bradford are a prime example, one of the worst stadiums in all of sports combined but finish just outside of super league in the rankings, the mind boggles, toilets like thrum hall , you need binoculars to see , a tiny bog ridden swamp where Arnold schwarzenegger was filmed hiding from the predator, a stupid block of 1970s style communist flats at on end and some dystopian decrepit steps that look like something from the day after tomorrow . 14 pts my booty .

Bulls got next to no points for Odsal which we can all agree is run down. 0.82 from IMG.
The difference between Bulls and other Championship clubs is that we have a highly performing foundation helping the local community 2.25 points out of 2.5. We also run a club at every level which the majority outside SL don't. But carry on as you seem to think IMG points are based just on the Stadium.

You would think in an ideal world then getting bigger cities in the top flight would make sense but as we have seen with London this year, they are miles away from been a viable SL club, and then over coming seasons I doubt we will see Bradford or York anywhere near the top flight. Toulouse maybe have a chance but realistically we will have Wakey replace London and then it will be a closed shop. The only other team seemingly in danger is Leigh and if they were to come down to the Championship and were replaced by any of the teams close on points it would just show the system up for the joke that it is.

14 minus 5 ( for having the worst stadium in all sports ) that’s the real score. It’s like looking for a restaurant and seeing what ratings it’s given online it gets an 8 but when you get there it’s a 1 with a 1 star food hygiene rating. The eyes don’t lie .

Img just a load of snake oil salesman talking nonsense. Bloody Newcastle who nearly went bust , where did that score come from , a kinder surprise egg .

It isn’t about like it’s about what’s fair and proper, if I go to a posh restaurant and get there it’s like Karachi cafe I ain’t gonna be happy

Anyway on a lighter note just been reading an article about the best restaurants in Bradford and apparently grace dent has given the kashmir restaurant a Michelin star .

Really? I always preferred the Karachi to the Kashmir and Omar's Balti House is better than either.

On the rugby Fax will improve when you get some key players back from injury. We had eight out on Friday that would be 1st choice normally but we have a squad of 23 and seem to be using loans quite well to plug the gaps (only four on Friday).
Re: The Bulls away.. : Mon Apr 01, 2024 10:47 pm  
Again @Ckt2487, bulls run a club at every level? Where does your funding come from?, Fax had to disband their reserve side as the RFL in their wisdom refused to help with funding as was promised. Not sour grapes, just the facts, someone likes you and what you did in the early history of SuperLeague, and with a cock eyed stare think you deserve to be a special case therefore ignore discrepancies with parts of the submission to IMG , I e you allegedly claimed crowds of over 4 k, were you counting the users the sports centre across the road?
