I would think it would be in the council's interest to use Odsal for landfill for a few years and then build on it.

Yeah rumour was the RFL sell the lease they own on Odsal and then build a new headquarters on Richard Dunns (also possoble rumours of building a centre of excellence with some of the £10million infrastructure fund they receive from the government as part of the WC)

The council then sell the land and with the money they build a new stadium on Richard Dunns site. Obviously it sounds too good to be true as they are no losers.

Anyway we're still waiting for a Lego model of the stadium, with Andrew Chalmers holding a spade on the Richard Dunns site and a fancy name of "odsal super dooper mega wembley of the northern powerhouse dome" before believing anything!

Not sure the landfill aspect would be a big issue either for housing or industrial use. To get best use of the land available they would have to fill in the bowl, presumably topped off with 'clean' earth or rocks just to level it off and then do some stabilisation - the waste which was causing the problems would then be far underground.

Absolutely spot on :CLAP: :CLAP: :CLAP:

They are all in it as a business venture - they dont care if us fans moan now and again - they know we'll keep buying season tickets no matter what.

It won't be housing, but it is being sold and a new modest sporting village on Richard Dunn's is gathering momentum.

It will only get done when people see £ signs in front of their eyes.
In this case I do think there is a chance of it happening. Building a stadium inside Odsal always needed a millionaire to throw money away but if Odsal can be used to generate money and a small stadium built next to it with the RFL headquarters and possible museum then yes, I think this is our best bet.

All we need now is someone at the RFL to see this, talk to the council and then persuade some experienced rugby league man or men to come in and buy the bulls giving them assurances of a bright future so that person can rebuild the club slowly over the next few years in preparation for a SL licence bid. Yep, that looks like the best way forward for us.

I wonder if that could happen.........Oh........wait a minute!

Now that sounds like a "plan" to me.

How much of this did AC refer to in his forum speech

Whilst I expect that somewhere between 99 and 100% of all this is a load of wishful/apocalypse thinking, one thing is true and does put a new emphasis on what the council's priorities might be. That is the need for building land for houses which the government expects the council to identify and the council's need to raise money to cover its losses in grants from the government.

As the council has tenants for the land, tenants with long leases it should be said, then so long as the rent is paid, they need the RFL's agreement to do anything, though, since we're apparently taking a 'rent holiday', I'm not sure how much say the club might get.

From my own point of view I don't really care where (within the City) we finish up, if we get a decent ground out of it. I'd better stop now as it's starting to sound as though I actually believe some of this stuff....

If they need any labourers or tarmacking I know a couple of gangs that could do it on the cheap; we could also get rid of any hazardous waste no problem - cash in hand an all that.
Or they could pay us in season tickets - that would get the numbers nearer 3000
