  1. Glad to see some people are on the same wavelength.
  2. Not fair because: It favors the "better off clubs" one great thing about G.B. speedway is that (in theory) all clubs should start the season "equal". CHOPPING & CHANGING RIDERS mid season is one reason for speedways downfall in the last few years, it's not fair to riders, not fair to sponsors of those riders & not fair to fans of those riders.
  3. Are Poole's changes fair? of course not. Are they good for other clubs/U.K. speedway? NO. Are they with-in the rules? YES. Are they good for Matt Ford & Poole YES of course they are!

    Surely once we are out of the EU, we revert to treating our commonwealth cousins with the respect they deserve, thousands lost their lives in 2 world wars fighting for our freedom.

    I'm very confident a good mathematician/accountant could have presented a set of figures showing the Rebels with Bomber within the set points limit! simple business accounting!

    Is that the same Chris Harris that wasn't allowed to sign for the Somerset Rebels? As they say: it's not what you know - but who you know!

    All this rider move talk, after the sad demise of another track..... The words PARASITE & VULTURE come into my head - is it only me? This would be the same teams that appeared to offer no compromise to the Rye House situation. ALSO are the new prospective employers willing to offer the "super duper" guarantees that they were on @ Rye.

    I will second that, hope that they can finish their premier season.... STOP paying silly rider guarantees would be a good start... If it means they run Saturdays, I can't see a problem - but careful planning of the rearranged fixtures would be paramount. Fingers crossed.

    Biggest problem is the "unavailability" of good shale. it is available but the quarries that have it will not supply speedway - because that have to many bad debts (non payments) Yet another example how G.B. speedway is in self destruct!

    Somersets next home meeting is listed REBELS v Rye House Rockets............ Anyone know what's happening or not!
  13. Excellent post, pretty much sums up this once great sport of ours. However "expect people to come and pay their money and come back again the next week" there's no meeting next week, the next home meeting is 2 or even 3 weeks time, therefore even diehard fans get out of the habit of their weekly speedway fix!
  14. Could you please park in the big hole on the bend!

    Assuming Matt pays decent points money, the poor season the Pirates are having would equate to a lot less money being paid out & more in Matt's kitty! All teams work with-in the same points limit, unlike other sports it's not that easy just to go & buy success, maybe the time has come to invest in up-&-coming british talent, most things go round in circles in life & that includes speedway!
