    Eastbourne v Glasgow Semi Final

    Never pushed at anyone, however annoyed I might be. Best to ignore such provocation is my attitude.

    “One aspect of the evening, that has been incorrectly reported and misrepresented on social media and various forums, is that a track official was excluded from the meeting. “This is a complete fabrication and totally untrue. The allegation has no basis in fact.” This is a quote from Ian Jordan on the Eastbourne Speedway website

    Whether it was a headbutt, or not: you cannot escape the fact that Cook attacked a track marshal, rode through the pits, which he (or anyone else) is not allowed to do, and ignored red lights/flags. Cook, if he thought he was provoked, needed to act in a professional way. He didn't.

    No member of the track staff ejected from the stadium. Just shows what misinformation gets out.

    Cook was riding his bike at a time when he should not have.

    You are right, he should not have been riding his bike at that point. He should have stood there and waiting for the introductions to finish.

    Cook should have been stationary before reaching the marshal. He should have stopped long before that point.

    If Glasgow had arrived, got on with the job, not caused aggravation, they would have had no problems. As to the track, Kennett, won heat one is one of the fastest times of the season, when under no pressure and winding the throttle back as he approached the flag. The track work after the Glasgow strop was over and done in 5 minutes. And then Craig Cook lost it, big time. Why did he think he could ride round when the presentations were going on? What doesn't he understand about red lights/red flags? They mean stop. What possessed him to attack a volunteer track official? Why did he sit out heat one? These are the real issues.

    That's what happens at Eastbourne. Mechanics do the pushing -- not sure when the role of "pusher" disappeared but I think it is totally gone from UK speedway.

    Says on Eastbourne website that Kennett's best engine had problems after two races

    Mr Facenna said sorry -- he said it on the PA system. Not much doubt where the cause of the trouble was. He was there, saw it and apologised.

    As I said before, it was Craig Cook who bears the responsibility. Shameful that he should ride his bike into a member of the track staff who was trying to protect other riders, officials and CHILDREN. The SCB must act.

    Hilarious. You have no idea, no idea at all.

    Which were richly deserved.

    Silent. Probably totally embarrassed.
