    Speedway Star in the winter

    I had an online sub previously and let it lapse, and immediately lost access to all content. Is that still the case i.e. when you have an active sub you have access to all past online issues, as soon as it lapses you lose all access to content, including the issues from the active sub period? Also wonder Phil if you had looked at putting old issues online..say world final issues of the 80s?

    Best Race Suit Ever?

    84 American final i believe. Tried a comeback for a few meetings in 85 then quit. Going on to become a powerboating(?) World champion iirc.

    90 Stars of British League DVD

    Why? When it's about the British league? And the footage of pre-war riders in any case would be quite limited. Definitely a bias towards riders at the latter end of the period, presumably due to better quality footage available. Hamil included despite only riding 1 season in the BL. But someone like Soren Sjosten who was a hl for many years and key member of the great belle vue side is omitted. But then it is "90 stars" no claims it is the best 90. Would be good to hear from someone who buys it if it is worth getting

    No-one is missing how the league currently administers contracts. What we are disputing is that the way speedway uses them has any legal basis. Would just take one court case to blow the current mechanism away.

    Otherwise their contracts could be terminated...oh hang on, they can be anyway. And what happens again if they aren't being paid per the terms of their contract?

    Probably before it runs out, given there is no minimum salary and seems employer can terminate at any time for any reason, so presume rider can too?

    And I'm struggling to see how anyone could misread that...

    Blair Scott on Jeremy Kyle

    If you don't see the difference between someone selling weed and someone selling crystal meth, seems there is little chance of a sensible discussion...

    Well done. Do you also film people exceeding the speed limit and report tradies doing cashjobs?

    Blair Scott on Jeremy Kyle

    Fair play, never having smoked or drunk or gambled. But i have a different perspective. I've known alcoholics who are lovely people. People with gambling addictions. I wouldn't class them as scumbags, given that I happen to like a drink but am lucky enough to be able to choose when I drink. I know a number of people who were incredibly nice until they got hooked on Crystal meth - yes obviously not a smart thing to take, but the scumbags to me are those who sell that crsp not the addicts.

    I think you don't understand what addiction means if that is what you believe. Perhaps it is theoretically possible to live a life without doing anything which is potentially addictive, but it would be a pretty boring life...

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    Though that said, maybe he didn't work as hard as Ole and Ivan, and was more reliant on natural ability. Perhaps why Ole's gating improved to world class standard, and PCs remained average (Though he could produce gates when it mattered, 77 final as an example).

    Tai Woffinden Best Ever!?

    To me that's not the main reason. It's that he didn't get close any other season. That even that season he wasn't dominant in other events. To win a GP series requires quality over a number of meetings, but even that season was he the best rider in the world? Was he in the top 3 riders in the world any other season. Where would he rank in riders of the decade? PC was best rider in the world for 2 seasons (imo) and the 3rd best rider of the decade (behind Mauger and Olsen).
