    What Offends Me And/or Gets On My .....

    Doesn't look like it as Monk represented Scotland rather than England which is what June was trying to get at

    What Offends Me And/or Gets On My .....

    Think that will be a whoosh......I think June was looking for a particular answer rather than a clever clogs

    Polish Xtra/nice Leagues/etc Live On Tv

    Of course it does.I left out a "not" .... things are not ok.But things being not ok doesn't mean he is out of the race or has an e.f.like I said surely we have all seen a rider have problems and then get going again.To be out o the race i.e an ef or ret you have to be at a standstill,left the track received help from someone or be lapped and he was none of those,so the ref got it right as another rider can't just ride into someone who is still in the race

    I am all confused.Jesper is there and has a programme and tells us there will be a final.........but I know Jesper and he is more interested in the polish women anyway

    Or maybe a Final?

    Surely you only have an e.f when you are at a stand still.He was still moving,so still in the race.If his bike had suddenly got power again he could have carried on.We have surely all seen that before.No-one is out of a race just by putting their hands up.It is just a warning to riders behind that things are ok,not a surrender like in wrestling!

    Polish Xtra/nice Leagues/etc Live On Tv

    To be fair I think his sight line was blocked and he only saw Dudek in the last split second.Dudek was still moving,so Kildemand must be the cause of the stoppage imo and should go.Like everyone else,just glad both are up

    The 2016 Speedway Best Pairs Cup

    Trying to say he is a bit dim.Tells us it is going to be a crap meeting and when it isn't tells us of course it wasn't because they had good equipment.Well if he was so clever he would have known that before the meeting.......just another one who can't admit they got it wrong

    No Woffinden....

    You normally are But I think you and I both hit on the main point "if promoted properly"........were Havelock and Loram's titles promoted properly and used to boost the sport? And who is out there to promote Tai properly?The sport isn't where it is because of a lack of home grown world champs and it isn't where it is because tai won't be riding in the British final.It is quite possible that the Danes saw things wrong and the fans only turn out to see Nicki in big meetings and it made no difference to a league meeting at Vojens or Slangerup.Maybe it was the same for Loram and Havelock and probably at the moment Tai's title would make little difference to attendances at Scunthorpe or King's Lynn

    No Woffinden....

    Maybe it is relevant to go right back to the 80s or even 60s.Not sure on that.Looking at recent times it is possibly only TRick + Sweden that have gained from having a world champ.I think even by the time Gollob won his title Poland was on the way down.Maybe Nicki's first title boosted the league in Denmark and that is why they were disappointed it made no difference by 2008......

    No Woffinden....

    Did having the 1992 and the 2000 world champ help British speedway?Doesn't seem to me that it did much good.The trouble is,it is not only having a British world champ that is going to make much difference,you need a character that can attract media attention and fans.Even then it takes much more to get the sport out of trouble.I recall a season after Nicki P won 1 of his titles that the Danish clubs were disappointed that it had made little or no difference to their crowds and you can't get a more popular or charismatic speedway rider than Nicki for the danes..... I also linked to a US article "Greg who?" or something in which it mentioned that Hamcock was a relative unknown in his country despite winning his latest title and obviously despite being very patriotic as people have mentioned .I honestly think it is promoters who don't really have a clue how to promote the sport,hoping that by magic,having a British world champ is somehow going to do their job for them
