    He is one hundred percent correct though. the way Ward behaves himself on social media just makes himself look even more of a knobhead than he looked before his crash. Some of the comments regarding other riders are disgraceful. The guy is a complete w@nker.

    Worth pointing out that the rugby team have moved out due to the high financial cost of playing at Odsal. Would Speedway be financially viable?

    Ipswich wait until the match is all but lost, then use their tac sub against Doyle and Batchelor. Good tactics!

    You don't like him because he acts stupid. Yet everyone on the south coast of Poole absolutely loved Darcy Ward. Forgetting his talent, that kid was a proper d!©[<. Craig is very tame compared

    An absolutely crazy situation to allow one rider to have his ban lifted but not the other. An absolute farce of a decision.

    How old are you? As you come across as a petulant child incapable of mature debate.

    Probably the first time in my life I'll say this. I hope Edinburgh pump them

    Superb meeting and a terrific advert for both handicapping and Isle of Wight Speedway. Some brilliant racing, capped by a stunning 6 rider final in which the massively impressive Joe Lawlor came through the pack to win. Throw in a top class track ( no blue line, no dust and racing lines) the wonderful sight of youngsters enjoying themselves hugely and even having races of their own and it was a top night. Makes me think that Speedway might just have a chance after all.

    Maybe just maybe, Cook is being allowed to appeal because he thinks he was provoked and can provide evidence. Not saying he was or wasn't, that's what the appeal is for. If that's the case Kennett has no grounds for appeal as he just sprinted quite a way to get involved in a fracas.

    Would strengthen Ipswich too.

    They would have to be nuts to get rid of him

    I think you'll find everyone out there has mental health issues these days! Regardless of the person(s) involved stigmatising mental health issues is a no go, think again.

    How can it get to 7.40pm to be revealed that Jason Garrity is guesting for Kyle Howarth? Nothing from either club

    Great to know that any rider can be a complete Bell end now, start a fight and get away with it now that a precedent has been set. Or does it depend who you get on your knees for ?

    Whatever the provocation (and there was most definitely provocation) the man threw punches at the very least. if he gets no ban at all while Kennett and Vissing do; it will be a complete mockery of a decision.

    At last, a proper fan starting a thread, well done

    Comparing Darcy and Cook is irrelevant. Cook ignored red flags, he shoulder barged an official (all be it after he stepped into Cooks path), he also threw at least one punch. Few, if any come out of this with credit. I hope Cooks ban isn't over turned, it would make the whole thing a mockery.

    Not getting involved in this, but i'm now blocked on twitter by Darcy, Holder and now Cook. Although only Darcy sent me an offensive private message regarding my Mum. Nice guy in real life tho i'm sure.

    You might want to look at his average - which is above any Poole rider

    Quite rightly if that happens, as well we know NONE of this would have occurred if he hadn't arrived with a negative attitude and subsequently ridden off when he shouldn't

    If I'm correct, some of Craig's complaint is to do with how close Vatcher is to Jon Cook and Vatcher's shown bias in the lack of punishment towards one of the Dugard's. Also, maybe Lewis Kerr has an opinion in the defence of Craig Cook seeing as they're King's Lynn team mates but were rivals at Eastbourne. If any rider was to deserve the longest ban it should have been Kennett. He got involved in something that had nothing to do with him.

    I’ve looked back at the old accounts for Belle Vue. There was no way that we would have paid one rider £100k in a season, even though we had Jason Crump (2008 and part of 2009) and Kasprzak (2009) at the top of their game. In 2009, our Sky income was just over £100k but we still lost about £65k. And that was for a team that finished bottom of the league which always keeps the wage bill down! Even then -10+ years ago - Britain was the poorest payer amongst the countries with professional leagues. The Sky money kept us afloat, but it certainly didn’t encourage anyone to overpay for quality riders.

    Can’t see where any of the accused have got away with anything yet. Everybody should have a right of appeal whatever they have done.

    BSPA can't make changes to SCB matters.

    One injury prone basket case out, one injury prone basket case in
