    Play-off final

    I believe they can but big financial risk without decent prior notice. As im sure you know many Kent fans plan their lives around Speedway on a Monday and even for a big meeting i can see attendances being hit running on another night.

    Your point is valid regarding the gulf in rider differences however the names that lets it down. Yes Danny King, Rory Schlien, Charles Wright and similar are heading to the line with Luke Harris, Danny Phillips etc and that is just daft. There will never be a value product if that is the model. The top tier imposed a standard for the lower riders to achieve and that is needed in the Championship. Watch two teams were lowest ave is 4 and top is 7 and will see plenty of unpredictable racing all night. Sending riders on 10 point ave and 2 point average to the line in the same race and expecting people to pay for it is pure madness.

    NLRC - Scunthorpe, Sunday, NOW October 20th, 5pm

    Im certainly not going to debate that riders & families deserve a holiday after a hard season and that postponements are annoying but as things stand the rules are the rules and until changed they should be observed otherwise we end up in a bigger mess than we are in now. As for a 6 or 7 being in, that will only happen if the higher riders don't dodge it, lets not forget it is also a privilege to ride for a speedway team and with that comes certain obligations. Purely for riders that are eligible to ride in the NL and are in a declared 1-7 NL side. Perks is currently the best rider in the league and should not be denied the chance to become individual champion.

    But that was the season just gone, everyone knows things can and do change over the winter

    With all the talk of teams moving up and down its looking like one big Championship league only...if the terraces are to be believed. Fortunately watching Charles Wright & Chris Widman racing against each other should bring the fans flocking back

    I don't disagree and there needs to be some injection of teams to make it a saleable product, equally top tier racing every week doesn't interest me either. Im fairly sure planning allows any night during the week. Len doesn't have a problem with what he charges as he happily jumped the prices again this year with terrible justifications. It might be that he is worried it would be a harder sell with the prices he charges but i would be staggered if he is losing any sleep over the prices he charges the fans.

    No i don't. I know that all teams have 2 places in the competition and it is a compulsory event. The organisers should contact each club and say you need to send your top 2 riders by MA (unless they can produce doctors notes) then it moves down the side. If 6 of the 7 are unfit to ride thats one unlucky side.

    What is the obsession with progression though? Rye House ran for many years successfully in the middle tier, moved up and look where it is now. Len is not a daft man, he knows the costs involved in the sport and currently tracks a strong side in the NL and is able to finance is comfortably whilst making a profit. For all the chatter the league structure will be the same next year as Matt Ford knows there will be a Championship. I also think Len has the morals to keep the league gong and not jump ship as soon as it gets tough. Plus who knows a 4-5 team league Kent might finally get that trophy

    Whilst there are very few fit Plymouth riders left i did believe that attendance was compulsory. Wilson has retired so escapes punishment but Stoneman, Andrews (both),Young & Bursill should by rights receive bans for the next two meetings (this season or next) but we all know they won't .

    Although likely to change how the devil is Cradley's Tom Spencer only reserve and Wally in the competition? Surely these should be switched. I can fully understand unattached riders at reserve (just) although Sam Woods is another odd choice but any willing reserves should be considered. But Cradley deserve two representatives and if Wallinger wants the rides he should let everyone see him turn up as a willing reserve

    Tip my hat to you for pure dedication and these levels of excitement for fans is what the sport is really all about. Here's hoping your trip is enjoyable & entertaining.

    KOC FINAL Wednesday 23rd and Friday 25

    Is Hume riding? I see he is out NDLRC so potentially last match of the season for him if he cops a ban for the Kent leg? Either way keeping fingers crossed for a good forecast and a great match up. A 8-10 point Cubs win should keep the tension building nicely. RTD & Rowe will be the two difference makers as both been hugely in the points recently and an off night for either could swing it.

    Takes deep breath...So Plymouth cannot manage to send a single rider to the event and Cradley can only manage one so presume there is a Mountain of doctors notes being produced or riders picking up the 2 match bans? Then the icing on the cake that Wally gets a ride when he is unattached (yes he has ridden for 50% of the clubs in the league) but surely any credibility this event has left will evaporate IF an unattached rider wins it.
