Didn't Caddick threaten to sue every YCCC member as well if they went ahead with the move?

Of course he could also have lost the test matches! How many times have you seen Headingley even near full except maybe a Test match and an occasion limited overs game? Yorkshire were not too keen on his latest rent proposals either!

Well it would be had he ever said that, WMDC never promised that stadium you refer too that was the then owner of BV, WMDC never promised any funding I’m afraid. So MC may have said that’s what he wanted but he never said WMDC were supplying it or certainly I don’t remember Box saying they would.

MC is on record recently as saying the pitch is not moving or being made 4G.

He did suggest it will become hybrid i.e. it has all weather elements woven in to toughen it up, as it will need to be used for more than just the RL.

No it wasn’t, WMDC have never at any point over the last 20 years ever offered to pay for the new stadium. There was a two million pound land guarantee kicking around at one point but that was a security not funding.

WMDC have never been willing to fund NM or BV as a complete redevelopment had they done so we’d have it by now. They wouldn’t even help us buy the ground back!

That said you keep saying pitch, do you mean pitch or stadium?

Also it would be very difficult from legal perspective for the council to fund a private development on private land owned by a private company. Not impossible but Box has never been interested as far a I know.

To be fair the Council threw a hissy fit about 2 years back when Trinity wouldn't agree to their rent projections and stated they were going to be a stadium regardless of whether Trinity were to play there or not. Complete BS of course but it is on record.

True but they never said they would fund it with taxpayers money as far as I recall, that’s my point.

God only knows who they reckoned was going to pay but it wasn’t them.
