    Championship and Poland

    contracted meetings for the full season, with DU a possibility or the chance of the odd match in Poland. If they were forced to make the choice I know which they would choose.

    well its not just that - it means teams turning up without some of those names - more guests/farcical fixtures

    the comparisons with football are completely bogus. For one thing, a home team mullering the away team every week is fine in football but v boring in speedway. People keep going on about the product being lower standard but the product is racing not names. As long as the racing is competitive then the product is fine. In the good times of the 60s and 70s for every Briggs, Mauger, etc there were 2 or 3 journeyman riders making up the numbers. How do you think they achieved regular 11 plus averages? If Briggs, Mauger, Moore, Fundin, etc met each other once a week their averages would struggle past 9. Mathematical fact

    well they could be forced if the dog was wagging the tail and not the reverse. You would simply be allowed only 1 rider over a certain average, thereby sharing out the talent. Its never that easy of course but .....

    so how the hell can the football club dictate anything??

    one thing that occurred to me - the proposed sharing of a new stadium and the football club's objection to having a track around the pitch. Will the football club make up the lost rent from the speedway club? Will the comets pay more rent and tell the football club to sling it. Who the hell do they think they are? I should imagine the Comets, despite everything, pull in more punters than the Reds

    no but top riders would be spread more widely therefore meeting less often so scoring more points and earning more ££
