    Your ideas haven't worked for Glasgow Tigers by the sound of it

    Doesn't she work at JLR (Jaguar-Land Rover), where I guess there's a scheme for employees at a certain level, and family members, to lease (or purchase) new vehicles at very affordable prices, probably changed every six months?

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    Obviously you weren't annoyed - I said 'being right isn't annoying', so I didn't envisage that you would be A lot of threads on the BSF become tedious and boring, sometimes quite nasty - but you certainly haven't let this particular one end up that way You really know how to entertain us all with your contributions, and your staying power is only to be admired Just to recap, as the thread does seem to have gone rather off-topic at times - is Tai actually the best British rider of all time?

    Being´╗┐ right isn't annoying. You keep typing nonsense, I keep correcting you. ´╗┐

    Totally agree - I'm only the "messenger" here, never touted it as my opinion

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    Answer = probably nothing. Tai is World Champion (OOFC version) and clearly is the best in 2018. Never disputed that. Don't twist things your way. The riders I listed, I suggested they were names of some of a number of British riders who might well have been better riders than Tai - but we will never know, therefore it cannot be stated as A FACT that he is the best British rider of all time If pushed, I would think Peter Craven, Michael Lee, Kenny Carter and Peter Collins WERE better than Tai - but we will never know, because circumstances and conditions have changed so much There is NO FACT to prove that Tai is a better rider than those four It is similar to an article I read this morning which states that Allison Becker (Liverpool) is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League this season - number of goals conceded suggest this, but I doubt that many would have an opinion that he is better than some of the others around - do the facts (goals conceded) outweigh opinions?

    I don't believe I ever mentioned riders' averages - do try and keep track of who you're discussing with! And . . . are you really convinced that you haven't stated any opinion? I thought it was your opinions against the world! There is no doubt that Tai has won three individual titles - fact Opinions vary as to whether he is the best British rider of all time, and will continue to vary - you have yours (despite your apparent denial) and others have theirs The several personal comments you have made on this particular thread over the days to various members do you a disservice as you try to bring us all round to your way of thinking You may be right with your opinions - but that, at the end of the day, is all that they are

    Just an opinion

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    It's all about facts and opinions - sadly some on here cannot tell the difference it is a fact that Tai has won three world individual titles (courtesy OOFC) It is an opinion that Tai is the best British rider of all time

    Quite clearly your opinions are totally correct and there is no need for me or anyone else to have any different opinions I thank you for your educating me in this matter, and I look forward to digesting your opinions on further subjects

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    Here's some (all within my 50+ years of spectating)! Brian Brett, Peter Craven, Nigel Boocock, Eric Boocock, Ray Wilson, Terry Betts, Kenny Carter, Simon Wigg, Malcolm Simmons, John Louis, Dave Jessup, Les Collins, Kelvin Tatum And before you ask, by gold medals I meant World Individual Speedway titles, those things which Tai has more of (3) than the others It was common place for riders to maintain their bikes themselves, or with the help of a mechanic - a far cry from what Tai has at his disposal
