    If I was still running a speedway I would have kicked your arse for you. Fans can speculate with their wishes or what they know. Riders and especially a hired hand like a mechanic, should leave the business to the promoters who's business it is. I would remind other readers of theses post, that this poster is the same poster who published what was going on at Newcastle in October, when Alan Hedley was about to quit the Diamonds. That was internal business, his post wasn't banter, but more attempt to get himself known as a part privileged knob with some information but wanted to big up what he knew. in any business, you don't want an internal mouth blabbing to the forum, to make himself look big and informed. I said at the time it was a mechanic who was blabbing and it didn't take long for me to find out who it was. Beware Kevin and all at Redcar, some will love it, but he will do no good to your business.

    Those questioning Wright just don’t understand Somerset. He’s part of the DNA of the club and terrific entertainment and shows 110% commitment week in week out. Welcome back Wrighty delighted your back !!!

    It was mentioned on here weeks ago about Doyle signing and people said we couldn't afford him - I said at the time that wasn't the case and so it's proved. Welcome back to Jason Doyle to his spiritual home. Plenty to be optimistic about with this team, plenty of improvement in Lawson, Holder, Wilson Dean and Allen. Who knows about the Dane as I know nothing about him at all. Poole can keep Chris Holder. I'm led to believe he was on his way until Ford put a stop to that. We'll settle for Doyle though *insert smug face*

    Every team is plop so far according to Shov. But no doubt when the meetings start in March Poole will be massive underdogs when hes making predictions.

    But if you are a Redcar fan or at least someone with a connection, why would you take pleasure in winding up fans with deliberate false statements - stating that JBA would not be returning was a lie - why say anything? All you have done is make Redcar fans question JBA because if he can appoint such a cretin as his mechanic, you have to worry about him.

    Just saying, but that's exactly the way you have come across for years now...

    Fair play to the club - several sponsors must have played their part. Terrific signing and a decent looking team who can all increase their starting average. Also great for British Speedway that the World Champion is riding here!

    It must be Doyle why leave so many points unused if it isn't him.

    I agree Steve A great British classic, full of characters, run for years (something like 286 episodes) and was recognised as a great success.

    I'd have read 'rules changing every other week' as just a saying rather than taking it literally, either way it really can't be worth making such a bloody fuss about!!

    it wasn't banter though - he claimed authority for a statement which he knew to be false. He could have caused problems - they may have appeared available to other promoters for example. If i was promoter or manager he'd be in trouble. Needs to keep it shut if he's in a trusted position. Well the management know he's not trustworthy now. Yes fans come on here and speculate - they do not claim authority and thats the difference

    That's very kind, thank you. I'm just trying to pass on what I've learned over the years. I want so much for this wonderful sport to recover and thrive.

    Rather confused by the headline and how a darts story can relate to "Auntie Beeb has remembered what Speedway was, once" (sic). What exactly does that phrase mean? Moving into the real world, darts has been successfully hyped for many years by professional businesses which specialise in such work, because darts went out and found someone to do this. Speedway has not. If the poster is trying to knock the BBC perhaps he should pay attention to what BBC WM are doing right on his doorstep? You have to sell the sport to broadcasters as much as the rest of the media. Instead speedway views the press as freeloaders who are likely to stop people paying to watch the sport. It's remarkable how much coverage speedway actually gets, usually down to the personal enthusiasm of a local editor. You can't just sit back and expect to be given coverage such as that darts piece. You have to at least meet these people half way. Most press and publicity in speedway is undertaken by willing amateurs. I know, I was one. You get what you pay for. Don't blame the media if they're not interested in what is offered to them, if any is.....
