    Yes, you said should we all just step up and walk away, and I answered that. If you enjoy the sport in its current state then that's great. If you don't, then don't go. No one should feel pressured into paying into a sport just because people want to try and scaremonger. It's really simple if you read my reply :-)

    No. If you enjoy the product in its current state then that's all good. Have at it and you keep going. But if someone like Najjer or anyone else doesn't, then they should vote with their wallet. Speedway isn't a charity, it's a sport and a form of entertainment and if you feel like you're not getting your money's worth then don't go! My main point is that speedway is on its arse. If speedway was a person, it'd be on life support. There isn't any any quick fix for the sport and there are an absolute load of problems that can't get addressed in one go. But one thing that absolutely will not save the sport is use it or lose attitude for more than one reason- 1. It doesn't entice new fans because they don't give a toss about speedway, so they couldn't give a rats arse if the sports ends or not and just makes everything look a little bit unprofessional. 2. The current fan base isn't enough to hold up speedway to begin with, so whether the diehards show up or not, it's not going to save speedway long term. It's a short-term solution and is only effective a minority of the time as a quick fix. 3. It let promoters get lazy. Rather than addressing the (many) problems speedway has, let's just blame the supporters! It's their fault for not showing up to the meetings. Not the promoters who run the sport.

    Absolute rubbish. It's fans that take it as it is that are killing the sport. If it keeps going the way it is, then it'll never bring in new fans, just p*** off the existing fans and the so called "die hards" that'll accept any lazy promoting and the general dross that's shoved our way. Maybe rather than trying to scaremonger the loyal supporters to show, they should work on the sport itself and promote it? Because 'use it or lose it' doesn't work, will never work and is just slapping a plaster on a gaping wound.

    I think those who've seen him round Owlerton would understand. He just seems to have a really knack for riding Owlerton. With Auty, he's just never particularly good round our place over last few seasons. Whether that's down to how the tracks preprared, machinery ect I don't honestly know. But all I can say is from the perspective of a Sheffield fan having watched Auty and Berge round our place I would 100% have Dimi over Auty.

    So Todd it is. I do hope he ends up our number 7 as he should do the business for us there around Owlerton. He's probably been saddled with an average just above what I'd expect of him in this league, but with Todd you've got a rider who can really pull it out of the bag at home and beat riders you wouldn't expect him to.

    I think Todd could do the business round Owlerton, but he'll get found out away from home. It depends what we have left over. Say the last two signings are Bates & proctor then we'd only have 4.01 in which case we couldn't fit in berge regardless. Although I agree, Dimi would be a fantastic signing at reserve for us lot.

    Could do. But I think you have to bare in mind that's 5 fees that need paying to other clubs. I can't imagine Holder nor pedersen will have come cheap, so we need to recoup the costs somewhere.

    Ok maybe swap Bates and Howarth around! After all the belly aching he did last season about being under constant pressure from the fans, I definitely wouldn't have Proctor back next season. It would actually fit though once you account for Bates' 2.5% reduction

    1. Pedersen 2. Bates 3. Grajczonek 4. Howarth 5. Holder 6. Nicol 7. T Kurtz. Would be surprised quite frankly if this isn't our 1-7 next season

    I hope Bates has a good season. On his day he can be absolutely box office and pulls off moves where you have to cover your eyes hoping he comes out the other bend on the bike. He's got all the talent to easily see a point and more on that average. But I do worry for him. He's picked up some awful injuries over last few seasons and to see him still hobbling and wearing a neck brace at the back end the season, for me it's sad to see someone as young as he is in that state. Speedway is a very unforgiving sport and I only hope he can have an injury free season and get back on track to where he was a few seasons back.

    I think Zaine will really struggle to get a team place next season. Awesome round Owlerton, but woeful away.

    If you consider Garrity a good signing then you're utterly delusional. Absolute unprofessional.

    Christ alive. Y'all haven't half made a mountain out of a molehill. If you're going to walk into the path of a bike, then expect to get hit... And a headbutt? Where?

    Could've dropped Nicol and MacDonald and brought in Kurtz and Smith.

    One club is up for sale, the other isn't. I think there's an obvious answer to that question.
