I know many of you dont care much about Rugby League but to me its rugby and anything with an oval shaped ball is good.

Today is deadline day for the future of this once great club and Northern institution. Apparrantly 300K has been raised but a further 200K is required by lunchtime or its curtains.

Personally I think that this is rabid scaremongering by Caisley in a n attempt to get cash out of people. The Bradford v Rhinos game on Friday (tomorrow) should see them home and dry with massive gate receipts expected. Why would you put the club into administration today when that game is tomorrow.

I can smell the wiff of mucky stuff from the bulls headquarters but it is a very sad situation all the same.

Bradford sport is mirroring Leeds Sport in many ways.

Bradford Bulls in the bull sh**
Bradford City...on the brink of going south and out of league
Bradford Park Avenue..a remarkable fight back but falling short.
Bradford Cabadi team doing ok.

Caisley nowadays has nothing to do with Bradford Bulls; he is only a cause of their predicament.

Caisley left the Bulls around 8 yrs ago - although some people believe his role in the Harris saga hasn't helped things.

About time teams that live beyond their means fall to the way side..

Should happen in Wendy ball as well.. If it happens to us, then so be it.

With respect Caisley is the major shareholder although he resigned his directorship. He still has a great deal of influence.

The major shareholders in the Bulls are Peter Hood (56%), Andrew Bennett (34%), and Stephen Coulby (8%). Chris Caisley doesn't own any shares.

According to the YEP Caisley owns 25% of Bradford Bulls and is demanding that the CEO resigns.

I apologise to Madtyke; I think you and the papers are correct. My information came from their last three annual returns to Companies House, and I failed to notice that they had recorded only changes to shareholdings during that period. They are required by law to declare a full list of shareholders within this period, but they seem not to have done it.

I believe the BB deadline has now passed - anyone know if they are (hopefully) saved?



I wasn't born in Yorkshire, but I got here as soon as I could

"Caisley, who left the club as chairman in 2006, remains the club's largest stakeholder and has called for an extraordinary general meeting".

Caisley is and always has been the biggest single shareholder.

Cailsey asked the other major shareholders to put pressure on hood to resign but so far he has refused to do so.
