    I believe you are right. A few looked to do it and soon the avenue was closed Didnt take the clubs long to realise the future impact and put a stop to it
  2. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Totally agree - Nathan was superb and it would be a travesty if he doesnt get a Championship spot
  3. Rye House 2018

    The registration remains with the club indefinitely In your example the club holding Davids registration before his retirement would still have held it upon his return That club wouldve had first priority for his services and have had to agree to his signing elsewhere whilst also picking up a loan fee in that scenario

    Scott 9.72 Nathan 4.51
  5. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Its January , team announcement in limbo , obviously no fixtures or other goings on - thats as real as news gets at this time....
  6. 2018 Premiership Predictions

    Currently there is one big drawback - there is nothing really worthwhile that comes with winning. No prize money , no significant publicity and limited extra sponsorship opportunities. But perhaps it may take a different outlook such as this one to bring those extra financials....
  7. 2018 Premiership Predictions

    An interesting stance and one that has some merit. The condition of the sport as a whole I dont think could be damaged any further by at least giving it a go. Of course if it was purely down to funds Poole may not find that they have it loaded as much in their favour as many may think.
  8. Change to qualification for a UK visa

    Absolutely - good new Aussies (and others) have a place in our leagues. Whilst I think the set up could do more to support young Brits simply excluding those from outside is not the way to achieve that.
  9. Rye House 2018

    Yep - and no rider can compete without signing his registration to a promotion
  10. Mildenhall 2018

    Its the National DEVELOPMENT League Thats what the set up has as its aim and is what should be the most important aspect If this gives Drew Kemp a chance to progress at a faster rate it is what needs to happen for the future of British Speedway
  11. Rye House 2018

    I believe that within current regulations a rider is not permitted to own their own registration - it has to be an a promotion
  12. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Totally agree Baggy - there is still a huge difference between the divisions. Yes it is narrowing a there is much greater crossover but it us still there.
  13. Just seen a twitter post confirming the services of 'the one and only' Kevin Long have been secured as meeting presenter
  14. Poole 2018

    I thought those reductions were only due when seasons were missed through injury and 'cant be arsed' isnt an injury in my book
  15. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Makes no odds really as neither Nicholls or Kennett wouldve gone anywhere near Worky
  16. Newcastle 2018

    That sounds like a similar choice you make when deciding if the woman youve just met is worthy of a 2nd date.....
  17. Poole 2018

    It shouldve been - This is the structure - which league (if any) do you wish to run in And I say this as an Ipswich fan. If the revised structure was genuinely to improve the overall future of British Speedway then it should be fit in or ship out.
  18. Scorpions 2018

    I will leave you to your delusions
  19. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Perhaps the promoters left the agm all thinking that no one was barred Only when certain riders turned certain promoters down was the proposal made and introduced......
  20. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    Errr ..... no!
  21. Peterborough Panthers 2018

    If he even knows himself......
  22. Scorpions 2018

    So 2.24 becomes 2 and 2.76 becomes 3 So 2 riders .52 apart are changed to 1 point apart The lower rider may well be very sought after and the higher rider not so....
  23. Scorpions 2018

    It as close to being relevant than a points per ride average.....
  24. Scorpions 2018

    But where does the leeway stop? Allow one team to use a rider that 0.03 over and then another team asks to use a rider 0.06 over - its only the same leeway over the agreed leeway. Soon gets silly......
  25. Scorpions 2018

    To be fair it not a difficult concept to grasp (or shouldnt be) Thanks Grachan for taking the time to type out the explanation!
