There is nothing to suggest that there weren't interviews and nothing to suggest who was interviewed.

Maybe the interviews went to the tune of:

"Were you to be appointed Bradford Bulls coach (as we hope), your player budget would be X and your salary would be Y"

"What! Y the X did you get me over here? I'm going to get some Zs on the flight back!"

Any one from minute one knew what was coming. If the club think this is going to re-ignite interest from the fans who have drifted away is nonsense. This is a stranger appointment than the Cummings one. I wonder if at the forum the club will come out and give its reasoning for the appointment.
I can accept failure, but I can't accept not trying.

I get the impression,based on the reactions across social media and from on here that the fans forum could get a bit lively!

I doubt because the club will carefully manage whats asked.

The problem is, you can see it at Odsal and even on this board, the vast majority have stopped caring.

The crowds are continuing to fall. It would be interesting to know what the clubs budget is based on next year - is it based on 1k crowds? If not, we’re heading for trouble again.

The club has made its decision, but they must know that this appointment won’t inspire people to renew (and certainly won’t help bring back lost supporters).

Results now are the main thing that will bring back lost supporters. Shall we give it 10 games….?
Pollsters doing Excellent job - say recent polls.

Matthew Shaw saying on Twitter that we're on a "bottom half" of the championship budget next year.
"If you start listening to the fans it won't be long before you're sitting with them," - Wayne Bennett.

If that is the case professional rugby in Bradford is dead and I think it proves we are being kept on life support simply to keep Odsal in use.

Isn't he the Halifax loving clown that gets aroused at any thought something negative could happen at Bradford and if there is no hint of anything will make up any b0ll0x at all to get his fix or am I thinking of another Twitter-tw4t?

Agree and this is why I won't be watching the Bulls in 2023
Club are still pushing the challenging for playoffs line when it's clearly not true.
Last year we had a group of 10 who went to games
It's now down to 2-3. With the 2-3 remaining unlikely to renew.

He is a well known Fax supporting RL journalist. Gets more right than wrong.
