What's with the random Wakey fan bringing up an article from 4 years a go? How random!

We playing top trumps and digging up articles form their administration as well?

I'm still not really following this. I'll paraphrase as the posts are a bit big.

Random Wakey fan - RFL helped the Bulls, it's not fair, wa,wa,wa.

Me: No they didn't

Random Wakey fan - ok then, here's the proof that Marc Green was the worst owner Bradford have ever had.

Me: So, you're saying that the RFL approving Marc Green as the new owner and then showing evidence he was a disaster, proves the RFL is helping us? :CRAZY:

Note: In case anyone missed it, Marc Green was banned from being a director for 5 1/2 years in February.

The fact that our dubious owners have shafted a number of creditors, many of them small companies and local ones at that, is a terrible thing. I think we all agree on that so what point he was making I have no idea.

Now I understand why this is all appearing. I've just found the sodding thread on the VT. Can I really be bothered to set the record straight on there. again.

I wouldn't bother. The normals have been told a thousand times and the weirdos now have the nonsensical idea of Bradford being favoured by the RFL hard-wired in their brain. It doesn't matter what you say to them, they are the Rugby equivalent of the people who say the phrase "project fear".

It’s honestly mad how hardly anyone sees the facts on the VT regarding Bradford Bulls’ previous ownership. I’ve had many arguments on there trying to educate those fans from other clubs who actually have no clue! Couldn’t get very far though. As you say Pumptypump, it seems to be hardwired into their brains.

Agreed. Its bad enough some delusion fans, but when supposidly intelligent journalists also start. If we really were the RFLs pets they would have found a way to have us in SL by now.

Everyone was convinced they were going to find a way not to relegate us after the 2017 season as well. If the RFL really did favour us they just had the perfect opportunity to find a way to fast track us into SL.

Yes Odsal should never have been brought by the RFL, but we didn't get any benefit from it whatsoever (probably a little of bit of justice there to be fair) but can imagine the meltdown if we benefitted like Wakey did in 2011 getting a license despite entering administration months earlier, or do what Salford just did with their CVA. But yeah it's only evil Bradford who's ever benefitted from dodgy decisions.

I'd just ignore the negative comments from opposing supporters. They must be bored of they're own clubs if they feel the need to comment on the Bulls board. Worrying when people feel the need to bring things up from years ago about people that have nothing to do with the Bulls anymore. If people want to enquire about Odsal contact the RFL, it's nothing to do with the Bulls anymore.

In all fairness to Wakefield they were gone. They weren’t getting a license. It was only because in the 11th hour, Crusaders pulled out due to financial troubles and I think eventual liquidation. The RFL obviously had no plans at that time to accommodate this and thus the easiest option was to keep Widnes as the promoted side but to replace Crusaders instead of Wakefield. So Wakefield by rights shouldn’t have been in during 2012-2014.

I think you should be able to leave that arguement there with that
