    King Cinder

    Thought it all got wiped donkeys years ago. Best hope is if someone ever recorded it on its original TV slot. Or if it was ever repeated on another channel. Highly unlikely to find a copy but stranger things have happened
  2. Was speaking to Adam Shields at Cardiff about 9 or 10 years ago and he said his Uncle Dave still had a spin on Matt Shields track. Said Dave's black leathers with the yellow handprint on the bum still fitted him too.

    I wouldn' have a clue how much either Jason Doyle or Ben Barker have ever received from the Benevolent Fund. But I do remember reading a few weeks back when it was announced he was riding that BB had said he would ride in the meeting for the first 10yrs. I know shedloads of fans out there hate BB till he rides for their team. But I'd say 10 seasons of putting yourself out to help your peers and former riders out should be congratulated. As for JD in my opinion he' the most deserving World Champion in donkeys years. He can gate he can race and not afraid to get well stuck in. The day he realised he could make the GPs his mindset changed. His loyalty to riding in our league should be welcomed. As I said on another thread a few weeks back Swindon have white possibly missed out on a way of getting bigger crowds by releasing him I hope Somerset reap the rewards.

    Nichols/kennett Rule

    Surely Eddie Kennett is easy to sort out an average. Use his last PL(2nd tier) average x multiplier(1.1 or 0.8 etc) so his average is equal to the strength of the current CL. Scott Nicholls one for the statto's How many guest appearances did he make in the PL last year. If not enough matches to form an average. Work out his average per ride and multiply by 4.
  5. possibly the best presenter in the business.

    Redcar handed fours

    As one of the Top men in the WWE I shall be arriving by luxury helicopter with a bevy of scantily clad beauties. The ladies will have their sexy bloomers with them as they probably won' know what weather to expect on a summer' day up north by the North sea.

    Redcar handed fours

    I haven't a clue how close the nearest train station is to Redcar, but if a reasonably short distance away why not go by train from Newcastle to Redcar. May even be a suitable trip for fans of other teams. Go the whole hog and charter a train like Mad Wellie did all those years ago. Train companies nowadays can with a bit of notice be very accommodating to slight changes in timetables and stops. In 2016 when Oxford Utd got to the JPT trophy final, Chiltern Trains who had opened a line between Oxford and Marylebone 6 months before altered their timetable so all trains between Oxford and London stopped at Wembley. They made money, supporters got a cheap and quick journey, I bet the company are still reaping the rewards as I bet a fair few people who wouldn't normally consider going to London by train before then, now do.

    Rye House 2018

    I might be having a senior moment, but I seem to remember John Davis owning his own contract.

    Ben Fund

    Probably an obscure rule that means he can ride at reserve in the NL

    I thought the few times Simon Stead was a pundit, that he was excellent

    Somerset 2018

    I' sure they'e tried and tried but it hasn' worked. So trying the transients is the next best option. To be fair the track is out in the middle of nowhere so to speak. I can only think of Cradley and ourselves(Oxford) that were tracks with a lot of fans within walking distance of the track. Obviously upto the late 60s tracks did attract a far more local home crowd.

    Redcar 2018

    You'e a proper fan Win,Lose or draw cheer your team on. You had enough seasons without a team. Cherish it now they'e back

    Somerset 2018

    Thanks for the Info I knew changeover day was friday/Saturday. So in the past it would be a problem, but now maybe the promotions work in that area may bring some rewards. In reality with the World Champion and a great racetrack you would think people would be flocking in. IMO even though it is obviously for team building purposes Swindon are mad not to use him. A Town like Swindon with a World Champion in the team should be packing them in. At least they'e trying which is far more than some promotions do.

    Somerset 2018

    Must be some sort of way of marketing the World Champion to the people staying at the various holiday camps and campsites in the area. Admittedly the owners of the holiday camps want people to stay in house as much as possible. But how many children get to see a current World Champion in any sport up close.

    Poole 2018

    Not often I agree with Steve, but that's a forward thinking idea. Also a possibility of sponsorship too. If Poole/Bournemouth is anything like Oxford there seems to be loads of independent coffee roasters looking to upsize their business by getting their beans into more independent cafe' and shops. If you signed him you could market Timo (Tea-mo) and Lahti (no explanation needed)
  21. Mine arrived today it generally arrives Thursday occasionally on the Friday if there's a bank holiday.

    Aahh But this is the BSF it always goes a bit off topic. Sometimes good sometimes bad(petty bickering) but I for one enjoy reading about people' thoughts on the good old days etc

    Glasgow 2018

    For years the shock was Glasgow winning at home Now they have a team to be proud of, though they were probably proud of every team they had even in the dark old years.
