London moving to plough lane smacks of franchising being reconsidered.....because they rarely make bad decisions regarding moving grounds :roll:

No, we can't all agree this.

The idea that Bradford, a club bust 4 times in a decade, have any claim on SL is unacceptable in the extreme.

The club that rattled buckets, sold medals and sold players shirts to "save the Bulls", only for the directors to pay their own loans back - no, no way.

The club helped out at every turn by the RFL, a move that cost every other club in the game money, money they will never get back - no, no way.

And forget the "it's a different club" and "it's not the fans fault" - Bulls should own their history.

I agree. As much as Salford have no place in SL neither do Bradford and their buckets

2 finals in the previous 3 seasons says otherwise. You are so controversial aren't you, shall I send you a 'virtual medal', if so just let me know.

York and Bradford already outstripping said SL clubs in terms of attendances at a lower level, and Newcastle with much greater potential.


Really?
As the 2021 season attendances weren't properly recorded I have looked at the 2019 average attendances for said clubs

York 2,129
Bradford 4,339
Salford 3,677
Wakefield 5,346
Huddersfield 5,132

While I am not saying the SL clubs average attendances are anything to shout about only Bradford have a higher average
than 1 of the clubs you quote.

And still can't generate enough business activity to pay their rent, or get more than 3000 locals to follow them!

Salford has no future as a top division club.

There seems to be a fixation in RL with attendances. In reality personal attendances have been falling across the sport as a whole. For some clubs im sure they have found alternative ways to plug the financial gap in terms of sponsorship with the lure of sky exposure, lower running costs and corporate payments.
