Ian Midgley: Seeing red over the Craven Park blues
CAN I take this opportunity to abuse my position and place a small ad?
Builder wanted: Reputable builder required to create red and white extension to my house, including picture windows, balcony and enough toilet facilities for visiting guests. Potential budget of £8m.
By which, of course, I mean I want a blue square "office block", with small windows, nowhere to stand outside and not enough bogs.
I wonder where I could find a contractor who would be able to follow my instructions so carefully and with such attention to detail?

Oh wait, what are NPS doing?
You know. The part council-owned development company which has managed to transform Hull KR's new dream North Stand into something that wouldn't look out of place on an Slough industrial estate.
Theses are the guys who, if asked to build the Eiffel Tower, would have instead delivered a concrete skate park. I'm not surprised the top brass at Craven Park are spitting feathers. To be frank, it beggars belief that we've got to the stage where it's actually being built before any alarm bells started ringing.
Surely, at some point, at least one project manager should have thought: "Hold on a minute, what colours does this team play in again?"
I'm going to buy shares in a red and white paint company –- I feel demand is going to surge in the next few weeks. Anyway can someone pass me NPS' number? I want a shed or a pond building.
If I ask for one I'm sure to get the other.
