    Jonathan Chapman - It's Your Time

    There have been some good business people with proven sales and marketing skills in Speedway in the last decade but unfortunately were driven out by the win at all costs brigade. They win at all costs mentalitists were never into the long term just who or how hard they could shaft the opposition using everything except 4 laps on a Speedway bike to achieve it.

    If Workington and Newcastle are to be believed then Scunthorpe have been refusing to re-arrange fixtures in the absence of Steve Worrall how co-operative is that?

    Pay attention lad, keep up. "The Kinks are an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1964 by brothers Ray and Dave Davies. They are regarded as one of the most important and influential rock bands of the 1960s."

    Phil, you know whatever emerges will be somebodys sanitised interpretation of reality, they still think they can protect themselves from the outside world. They're like elephants hiding behind a lamp post that think no-one can see them, it's corporate denial.

    You're right this will buy 2 seasons unless 5 or 6 clubs close then there will be a reasonable standard of riders available for those that are left.

    Glasgow 2018

    Might have something to do with a certain rider not scoring points when he rode for Workington last season so that he could comfortably guarantee his place in the Glasgow team this season.

    Buster Chapman and the Secret Society

    The minutes are sanitised before they are published, just remember it's a legally constituted association (not that it makes any difference to the current regime who are better Magicians than Ian Thomas was)

    Thank you Sky for nothing

    I think this needs rephrasing, he earned a percentage of the Sky fee in line with the BSPA's finders fee payments policy, the fact that he took less overall than he was entitled to seems to go unrecorded. They chose to outsource their broadcast rights just like they've outsourced Team GB now, the fact that Terry was and Rob may be successful with it seems to go against Speedway's grain hence Terry is still begrudged what he justly earned. How can you say to someone "get us on TV and we'll pay you X per cent" and then "now you've got us on TV we don't want to pay you any more"?

    Thank you Sky for nothing

    Whenever the Elite League clubs went back for more money or to extend the term for "advances" Sky and GoSpeed questioned the wisdom of not reinvesting in the sport. At contract renewal they suggested putting some of the money into grass roots schemes, Team GB and other long term initiatives. Terry told the BSPA "you do know you are going to run out of money" but the cry was "who are they to tell us how to spend our money". Admittedly some found it's way into those initiatives but nowhere near enough and the BSPA Office was partly funded from TV money.

    Workington 2018 .

    Correct and the 2 outstanding fixtures yet to be re-arranged should be the first 2 to be told, yes I mean Sheffield and Scunthorpe. As members of the Management Committee they should assist Workington by declaring their intention to support the difficult circumstances the Comets face and get their team's arses up to Derwent Park smartish!
