    It's probably just as well if you have ambition for a large membership.

    Do they actually have that choice, or is it based on averages?

    I would quite enjoy the chance to be more expressive, I'm 'easily offended' by the number of posters on this forum who struggle to spell very simple words but I've managed to live with that.....So far!

    I still can't see any opinions, I would prefer to see the members list before committing myself.

    I couldn't see any 'opinions' just some second rate footage of a race which was posted a year ago.

    I often find it's too slow to load when all my other favourites are fine.

    Leicester! Anyway it was good to make it to the semis.

    Cardiff is a unique event, if the league had to re-structure and teams had to lessen their averages, it might make a slight difference. Anyway It looks to be heading that way whatever changes are made. Land is too valuable, tracks are too inaccessible and people have different leisure priorities. I can see the day when about a dozen tracks hold meetings clustered around weekends and Bank Holidays, using riders who work in other jobs through the week. I don't think the sport will stop but I think it'll change greatly.

    We are simply debating opinions here but in mine I think if we splashed out on more top stars (especially when you consider their wage demands), you would get tracks closing at an even faster rate than now, it just wouldn't work, you either go with what you can afford or you go out of business, same on the high street where only the cheapo stores selling downmarket rubbish survive. Cardiff does well but it's a one off that has become a tradition for many but it isn't a patch on Belle Vue but even the international meetings there don't do brilliantly. Imagine Zmarzlik at Belle Vue (or any other track), you'd need an extra two to three thousand more just to pay his wages, you wouldn't get them, then look at the state of most stadiums and tracks, the majority need bulldozing and replacing.

    If you can't afford caviar you get scraps at the chip oyle.

    And the man who looked to be it's saviour turned out to be the reaper.

    I agree with that but it would mean reverting to one league and initially a lower standard of rider, fine by me but every time anyone suggests it on here they get shouted down.

    What would you suggest, you have the best track there's ever been in this country and still it has pathetic crowds?
