    2018 Regulations

    They couldn’t hit the 5 minutes when that was in the rule book. Why will making it 4 minutes make it more likely to be hit? Meetings used to take over 2 hours, that’s about 8-9 minutes a heat. At 4 minutes between heats the rules states that meetings should be over in 72 minutes, or 1 hour and 12 minutes. Yeah right!

    “Lies, damns lies and statistics” is perfectly apt here.

    It’s not prejudice, it’s realism. And the fact older people refuse to accept it just shows how right young people are. If I was an older person I’d stop screwing over the young, I’d stop mocking them, I’d stop accusing them of wasting money, I’d start listening and not shouting, “prejudice” at anyone who agreed with them. Was HA being prejudice too?

    Seems pretty spot on to me. The young are continually being fecked over. Eventually the young are going to snap and the old are going to be less in number. The old can try and ignore it but soon they’re going to regret ignoring it!

    Not an issue any more. Doubt there are many SEC meetings on a Monday or a Wednesday

    Garrity not as good as he once was? He had one slightly bad season. You’d swear he’d been crap for 3 or 4 years now!

    12 rider individuals suck. I'm working in London and was going to go to the meeting, specially as its in memory of a rider I was a fan of. Then I saw it was the crap 12 rider format. I'll go and find a bar and have a few drinks instead! Is it really that difficult to find 4 more riders early in the season?

    I used to quite like Vince Cable. Then he got a sniff of power that he never thought he'd actually get and just become "one of them". He's not no different to the rest of them and will sell his granny for a fiver and a bit of power. Mind you, a lot of the same is said about Nick Clegg and I quite like him.

    No TV deal?

    Sorry but thats rubbish. I started paying attention properly to the sport about 20-odd years about (1997 when Newport re-opened) and the sport is as exciting now as it was then. And having sat and watched a lot of stuff on youtube, video and DVD I assure you the sport was absolutely not any more exciting 40 years ago. What the sport did have 40 years ago that it has very few of today in characters, riders who'd go up to the referees box, or strop over to the phone by the start line. They're gone mostly because the sport is no so professional. Gone are the days of being able to go in the bar and get pissed up with the Americans who everyone loved but if you want to be a half decent rider you can't get drunk in the bar and if you were seen getting drunk in the bar fans would complain its not professional. The standard of racing is no different now than it has been in any era, ever - well certainly any era that has been recorded.

    So Lee Payne, an amateur who is paid £10 a point is now expected to not ride motocross? Good luck putting demand like that on riders who are basically paying to ride. Until riders are employed with full benefits you can’t stop them riding motocross or sledging.

    But who says they won’t return at some point in the future? I first went to an ice hockey game because we had free tickets. Never considered it before that. Since then I go once or twice a year. If you’d asked the week after I fort went for free you’d say it was a failure but ask now 15 years later and I’ve been to at least two dozen games and taken others a few times too. You’re not going to hook in everyone as new weekly fans, most will never return, those that do return will be over time. That said, if the “show” you provide is crap he free entry has done more harm than good. It’s no good letting people in for free to watch crap as they’ll never ever return. Free entry to a good product and they might return one day. It’s too long ago since I last visited Workington (Carl Stonehewer was riding for them!) but have they considers their product is just crap?

    Speedway still thinks it’s 1980 on a good day. They play 80s music, if you’re lucky they forget and accidentally play something from the 90s! TBH, it’s not about music from any particular era. There’s rubbish stuff in the charts today and some great stuff was in the charts in the 60s. It’s about playing music that gets people excited. The current number 1, Gods Plan by Drake (and I just had to search for it on Spotify as I’d never heard it!) is more likely to send people to sleep then getting them excited. It amazes me how often you see a great race, the crowd going wild then the dull as ditch water announcer reads out a result with a beat time and everyone calmly fills in their programme and then they play a nice calm song to relax everyone. Jeeze. Get rid of programmes and have a score board and as soon as that great race is over blast something that keeps people excited.

    Kim Nilsson owed a few bob

    And if the captain refuses to sign the club assigns a new captain. Happened many times.
