KD - knowing they will be relegated anyway, I suspect Broncos have spent as little as possible on their squad - so will not be competitive.

Spit. The covenant was nowhere near that. More like £300k

If we weren't getting money from the Broncos, the number of our fans who gave a toss about what happened to them would struggle to reach double figures. Londoners have better things to do than care about Rugby League.

To be fair, Castleford have just got planning permission for a £14m grandstand.

IMG grading would've have been the only way to save the Broncos from relegation this season anyway. Played 2, lost 2, points for 4, against 74
I would have thought rugger fans wouldn't need padded seats as they all look well padded :-/

It's only us skinny folk that need them !
capacity has to be 5,000 which we have ticked, you have to have 2000 seats which we haven’t got ….. You’ve got to have 200 sponsor seats which are padded and physically cordoned off in a different area which we don’t have. ….. directors box needs to hold 40 and be cordoned off from public are which it isn’t at the moment ….. studio access for Sky which is on the gantry should be 4 by 4 metres. At the minute it is 3.1 by 3.1 metres but it is doable.,,,,, “The seating capacity would go down even further so what we could do then – I’m not saying this will happen – is take the yellow plastic seats and put them down the front of the Princess Street stand for a hybrid seating and standing which would give the tick for seating capacity. …. “We know because they will redo the capacities that we need more barriers in the Wheldon Road end. So take the barriers from the Princess Street to the Wheldon Road stand. Then, we’ve ticked all the boxes to get 1.5 points.

Re-Broncos. Next Season the 12 team Super League will be based on the IMG Grading criteria. Broncos rank 24th and can’t make up the nearly 5 grading points they are short. Castleford lay 13th currently a third of a point short. Their plans to make the Super League make a mockery of the sport. I’ll stick a few of them in the next post, but basically you have teams trying to get promoted / avoid relegation by increasing the size of their TV gantry by a few metres or adding some padding to sponsor’s sheets. I can understand improving standards, but to effectively determine promotion on who has the largest TV gantry or most comfortable seats is laughable.

We could do what Fulham did by having the Micheal Jackson statue then removing it a couple of years later

Merton council selling plough lane for a pound to Sam was the biggest mistake. (Not sure who was in charge of the council back then?)

Obviously it wasn't all down to Hammam. It wasn't all down to any individual. It was a collective effort. But I am certain we wouldn't have achieved as much as we achieved without an owner willing to write 'John Fashanu is a wanker' graffiti in away dressing rooms.

KD - I'm not as convinced as you appear to be that Hammam was a fundamental/integral/necessary part of the success certainly as much as Bassett for example. Do you not think we would have achieved those success without Hammam ie if Noades hadn't sold the club to him?

On balance I'm afraid I think Hammam was a tosser who shafted us big time
So if Sam hammam said I will give the club back 8 million, but you have to have a statue of him at NPL ,would we turn him down?

He was there but so was Stanley Reed, perhaps paying for end of season trips to Magaluf and Lebanese restaurants helped team bonding but it’s dangerous to over exaggerate this

Hammam owes us and if he had anything about him he'd weigh us in with the £8million he trousered from the Plough Lane sale. Peanuts to him

Hammam was integral to it. He was the owner, he signed the likes of John Fashanu, he put goal bonuses and eating sheep testicles in contracts. It's revisionism to disregard this.

But it happened due to Bassett not Hamman that’s the point

If you had a time machine and could alter history so that Sam Hammam kept his greedy mitts off Plough Lane but the rise from 4th to 1st Division + FA Cup win never happened, would you do it?
