  1. Pretty poor team being tracked by Panthers, hardly worth turning up in fact. However with the injuries and the set race nights guests bookings leave little room for manoeuvre, so really can't blame Panthers management.

    A distortion of the facts re Holder and the Showground. The Holder situation was roundly condemned by the fans but did not materially effect the Panthers Season as they won the fours and Cup. SCB subsequently made it clear that BSPA exceeded their authority and suggested that the major part of the blame should be directed elsewhere. Regarding the Panthers/Showground what Neil said was that the Showground will not close , not that Panthers are secure although we all hope they are.

    Favourite Rider of All Time

    Funny the things you remember. My earliest memory of Briggo was in the pits at Wembley probably in 1950's, he was probably still a teenager. asking his mechanic to tighten his handlebars which had become loose
  4. For me has to be Brian Crutcher

    Track Grading

    Does anybody know why track grading has evolved to it current format.? In the past it was pretty seamless after every race whilst bikes being got ready for the next heat.
  6. Buster had another attack of CTD ( Compulsive Tractor Disorder) Getting worse as he was going backwards for some of the time.

    I do not remember putting it in quite those terms but may have said something similar. On reflection I could see that sort of attitude if adopted by all would see the Panthers fold permanently, and I certainly do not and did not want that

    It is not the fans fault if they do not like the product and do no go, it is the fans fault if they do not go purely to indulge in retribution against Buster, whose tenure I agree has been a disaster. I and others hope there is something left when Buster goes. He has always said his tenure is only temporary

    Owners come and owners go, in my view it is important to leave something behind that a potential new owner will want.

    A masterful and well argued post, succinctly making your point in the most erudite manner

    Interestingly we get the news on here and not from official sources. In fairness there is little room for manoeuvre in terms of availability

    My view is that the club is more important than the owner . If supporters stop going to punish the current owner then they are effectively closing the club down. If that is what you want that is your affair , but it will be you that closes the club not the owner. Nobody is going to continue to lose money indefinitely. What supporters should be doing IMO is to create a club that another party would like to take over. The above is not in any way an endorsement of Mr Chapman
