    Would not be surprised to see Bomber, Danny and Rich all have a spell at number one with this line up. Should be an interesting year on the Heath...

    Ipswich 2019

    Lets hope Lynn, Borough and Ipswich finish as the bottom 3... Ipswich still look a terrible side and Harris’s average is only going one way..

    NOT sure "speedway spends millions" is likely in this day and age

    Thank you to the BSPA

    THERE has been a huge uplift in the use of social media by many of the tracks (especially Twitter) in the UK and to a lesser extent even the BSPA. But, as we at SS have discovered, it is probable that the vast majority of fans do not which suggest that it might not be quite so effective as one might hope.

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    I keep saying 2 because its 2. If we get a rain off it could increase but its 2 as we stand.

    The Triumvirate could not have done a better job if they had deliberately set out to drive people away. Louis falling out of his pram re number 1 seems to have been the catalyst

    Just had a study of it, as you say it's a cracking site, so sharp, clear and informative.

    He ended up with a decent Premiership average (they don't lie) and his class will shine through ...have faith brotha he is a top class performer and i'm sure will give plenty of entertainment, but I guess you are a pint "half empty" kind of guy

    They've forgotten to do it. Surely somebody there must wake up soon

    Kings Lynn 2019

    Definitely not for me Scott is well passed his best and his average is only going to go one way whereas I think Ty can easily up his 6.67 a bit, wouldn’t surprise me he finishes the year on close to a 7.00 as long as he can remain injury free.

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    WE could go on forever. But let's not. However you are a little naive about Polish speedway if you think the clubs will will be dictated to by riders.

    Give it 6 weeks into the season and the excuses come thick and fast, Louis will be on the phone again.

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    You keep on saying 2 GP`s - however the reserve dates are on another 6 GP weekends. Hell of a difference if they use some of those !!!!

    Polish Extraleague TV contract 2019-21

    Two new TV deals have given a huge amount of extra revenue over the contract period. R&R gave the values earlier in the thread, sigificant sums of money generated just from TV and more will come from sponsors because every match is live. Riders are not fools as they are the stars of the show and will argue there worth What makes you think the riders are not earning more given the huge rise in income due to these contracts ? If the riders are earning more, the clubs are earning more, there is more sponsorship coverage, the opportunity for more sponsors is obvious due to live TV - if you find that hard to swallow - there is no hope !! You refuse to embrace the postive and only mention the negative. I'm setting the balance and it is FOR 2 GP'S ONLY.

    Newcastle 2019

    Yes, it was Chris I meant John. She used to stand with us when we stood in front of the Office, and would go anywhere for Chris, even staying overnight at his house if he had a few meetings together down south. I don't think even I could pick myself out, presumably it was in brown sepia.

    Mods could we get this topic pinned please. Thank you. BLACKHEART removed line ups from his original post.

    Hype! Hype! Hype! You cannot sell the Sport to people who have never seen it nor are even aware of it... However. Advertising ten meetings locally, with a £200k prize fund, would trigger some interest from those who are blissfully unaware of Speedway I would suggest.. Its got to be 'in your face' these days to get your message out... And Speedway spends literally millions to remain 'small time' and unheard of... It needs to get its message out to the wider sporting public so they know exactly just how much is on offer...
  24. I`m excited !! R & R bookmakers are funding the competition for a 7th year- and the best Speedway bookmaker in the UK has made the competition better for the punters(i know my generosity is unequalled !!) In 2019 we have the introduction of the SPREAD STRETCHER- more of that later. RULES Each contestant MUST place bets in all 10 rounds -in the event of having no money left they are out of the competition Each player starts with £400. MAXIMUM BET PER GP IS £200.minimum bet per GP is £20(or total balance if less than £20) minimum bet per rider is £10. All bets can be edited up to the advertised starting time of the meeting. If a rider is injured before a round starts then the bet is voided on that rider, or bets can be amended up to the meeting start time. If a rider starts a meeting but is injured and cannot continue THE BET STANDS but any points scored by the reserves count towards the injured riders score. If any rider is excluded for a starting offence the reserve points scored do not get added. To ensure fair play bets for the final round may be required to be PM`d to me instead of normal posting. If a meeting is called off at heat 16 then the spread will be adjusted to 4/5th`s of the original. If a meeting is called off at or after 20 heats the spreads stand. HOW TO PLAY One must bet on a rider to score MORE OR LESS than the spread-the HIGHER figure is taken for MORE bets and the LOWER for LESS bets-the mid between the two is what I expect them to score-and they add up to 138 which is the total points available in a GP EXAMPLE These might be 3 of the spreads for the 1st GP of the season Woffinden 10 - 12 .Hancock 7 - 9 Kolodziej 5 - 7 Player 1 might think Woffinden will score more than 12 in Warsaw so bets £100 MORE. If Woffinden scored 15 he would win (15-12 =3) X £100 which is £300. If he only scored 8 he would LOSE (12-8=4) X £100 which is £400 and be out of the competition. Player 2 might think Hancock will score less than 7 and bets £200 LESS Hancock scored 5 so wins (7-5=2) X £200 which is £400. If he scored 11 he would LOSE (11-7=4) X £200 which is £800 and he would be out of the competition. Player 3 might think Kolodziej will have a stormer and bet £200 MORE than 7 . if he scored 9 he would win (9-7=2) X £200 which is £400. however if Kolodziej scored the mid-spread of 6 he would LOSE (7-6=1 x £200 which is £200 SPREAD STRETCHER The other major bookmakers are so predictable offering " bet boosters" "make your own bet" etc etc that i have gone one better and am offering the unique SPREAD STRETCHER. Every contestant has 2 opportunities (separate GP`s) to use their SPREAD STRETCHER in the 10 GP`S(if left in competition!!) The SPREAD STRETCHER is used on a bet on 1 rider - up to the maximum of £200 bet per round (ie £200 on the 1 rider or maybe £100 as the SPREAD STRETCHER with up to £100 on other riders) If the SPREAD STRETCHER bet is to score MORE i will adjust the spread on that rider bet by ONE WHOLE POINT ie Bet more on Woffinden at 10-12 the SPREAD STRETCHER turns it into 9-11 !!!!! If betting LESS the adjustment goes the other way ie Woffinden less than 10-12 becomes 11-13 Obviously if you the Punter get it wrong it`s happy days !!!! As you can tell i`m really excited about this addition to the competition- and rest assured i will be keeping a note of it`s use so that no one gets to use it 3 times(as if punters would try that !!!!) Spread for the 1st GP of the season in Warsaw on May 18th will be up nice and early once the early season form has been studied

    Cracks me up every season when I read about making Foxhall a fortress. We always lose very early on, sometimes very very early on, and this season will be no different.

    All tracks pay their seven riders a fiver less each race..? (£300 a meeting). That would put a few grand a week in to get someone 'decent' across the Leagues.. BV used to pay (if 'informed' rumours were true) circa £3k a night for Matej Zagar... £6k a week if home and away... Since he left I haven't seen a mass exodus of fans so he didnt bring in anybody extra.. Yet giving £6k a week to a good marketing company would have I reckon.. Speedway spends millions each season on riders who deliver very few extra bums on seats, using an operating model ran by people with a vested interest, which actually dissuades people from attending... It needs to invest its millions far more wisely to get a better return..

    Thank you to the BSPA

    I have always thought it's all about the money , golf Boring , darts boring , snooker boring . all attract large interest , now its not because these things are exciting is it , it's because of the prize money .
