    Seems a stupid idea to me. There's no need for it, what was wrong with a draw? Also as has been seen in the SON. Someone falls on the first lap or touches the tapes etc & you get the boring situation of a virtually pointless re-run where only one team can win with the 4,3,2,0 scoring system being used. Also cannot understand why they'd introduce a rule change like this & not announce it?

    Yeah, but, Omicron was seven times more transmissible than Delta and twenty times more hysterical.

    Thanks for proving me right. As I pointed out, Lemon didn't say he "hoped" Etheridge could move up. He said he believes he's capable of moving into the main body of the team (having been reserve last year). That's clearly why he's giving him the no.2 job to do this year.

    I'd personally switch the reserves around, otherwise I'd agree with that line up. Hard to tell on the pics but the pits seem pretty much in the same position (pics are on Facebook). I believe they are containers, with the fronts 'chopped off.'

    Another deliberate manipulation of the facts. Chris Bryant made that claim without any factual evidence in support hiding behind Parliamentary privilege. Farage has come out in the National Press and National TV and not only denied the claims but challenged Chris Bryant to make the claims outside a Parliament so he can be sued. So come back Hump if Bryant ever repeats the claim in public otherwise it’s the usual Chris Bryant nonsense that we are all familiar with.

    Plenty of people all round the world who did business with Putin's regime. No-one comes out of this well, especially since Putin's aggressive intentions became clear 15 years ago. The bottom line is though, that you can't simply replace Russian oil and gas in a matter of weeks, as I'm sure you know perfectly well. Moreover, the UK and its overseas territories has been at the centre of Russian dodgy money for years, so can't be moralising about anything... It will eventually also come out how Russian influenced Brexit, despite the offical cover-ups we've seen to date.

    It's almost as if Trump is Putin's mate (or lapdog) or something: https://www.newsweek.com/russia-sanctions-joe-hunter-biden-hillary-clinton-10-others-1688214

    In terms of deaths, absolutely nothing happened in either the delta wave or the omicron wave. In terms of deaths, the 'covid' crisis was over by April 2021...

    But a bug bear , for a lot of people is drawn out meetings. Now, you could have a 15-20 minute interval after heat 10 or 12, a 5-10 minute gap for the nominated heat 15 + possible track grade then another 5+ minute gap for the same riders(probably) in heat 15 to have a tinker with their bikes while another track grade takes place.

    I get the theory behind this, to try and create some entertain towards the end of a meeting to get an overall winner - but to achieve that, surely you are better served to return to the old bonus point system and if the scores are tied on aggregate then go to a run off! The scoring system is one of the few things British Speedway has got right in recent times… and now it was a success they’ve decided to balls it up! Can’t make it up! Edit - missing word in original post

    Well that’s more to the point. Russian money has indeed been both made and squirrelled away in many parts of the world especially Europe for years , and no one comes out of it well. So why do you carry on as if it’s only Tory MP’s doing it ? Germanys almost total dependency on Russian gas and oil is Merkels legacy. She saw the same signs about Putin as everybody else.

    It hasn't been! Despite it being the biggest change in the scoring system for around a decade Just snuck into the regulations with a murmur Check out the thread in the general section. Only applies to the Premiership though I believe

    The car park at Unipart is free You might not enjoy delays on the way to and from the meeting but that's hardly any promoters fault.

    The super heat scores are not added to the totals so the away side still get a point in those circumstances I agree though not a change that was necessary. The existing set up was a fair outcome

    Can we have special 'Chris Harris' and 'Scott Nicholls' scratch cards that have their photo on it and every teams race jackets. Then when they guest for each team we can mark off the jacket's! Also there was the special cards that toggled two pictures as you moved it. So the Sam Masters card could show an Edinburgh race jacket in one view and a Wolves in the other!

    I must admit that I enjoy posts like these. It's the rich irony of a poster so vigorously questioning the intelligence of others whilst they fail to follow basic grammar in the same post. Well done!
