    Good start from our lads! Surprised we got a point from swindon! Proctor scoring decent points. Nice start! Positive beginning to the season i recon!

    The fitness thing is all good. Nice to know his team will have more than just the meetings to work on together. Hopefully there won't be any injuries to ruin it all. But my main gripe is the price increase for adults. It's not an 18 pound sport. I'll still be there because I'm a mug. But there are plenty of guys who don't because of the price out of my non speedway mates. Hopefully meetings will be run slicker too and they find an announcer full of energy soon too. I thought gavin caney had the potential to be good. He was just over trying to create an atmosphere but I warmed to him. He seemed to have a fun way with people.

    its only really worth having bt for both. there is normally some form of link to the gps within 48 hours on youtube. 2016 i got my gf to find it for me so i didn't get any spoilers. I'm more of a league racing fan and not really into any other sports. if no league racing then there will be no subscription from me! i want meetings on tv 7 days a week!!! cl/nl too !if it loses its pl football then why not! the more on tv the more chance of a random tv channel hopper finding out about the sport! the more hype and meaning it will all have too! even the more sellable it would be to league naming sponsors! imagine some big company seeing speedway is on 3 nights a week! British league speedway brought to you by a 7 figure sponsor. more exposure the more possible that could become. . . . before that comment gets urinated on too much. Somebody sponsors netball nowhere near mainstream. rally too. ski sports. just needs some energy put into it all

    Stead is a great addition to the pl. especially if the TVs deal gets signed. I liked lynch but I liked him because he came acrossed a bit of a wally. A fun character. But not a leader of men. Hope he does find another job in speedway. Maybe at a lower level though if he has the hunger for it.
  7. Nichols/kennett Rule

    funny how the championship want pl riders but don't want to step up a league. That's the problem! For 2019 all averages converted to pl averages with cl cubs building to 21.25. No riders over 6. There after the conversion rate will we 50% . Half. would make the whole thing a lot more credible. plus it would mean any pl team would be unlikely to have more than 3 double up riders naturally. And more top nl brits would get a chance too. Especially if they came in on a 1.00 its odd how the championship clubs. Knowing the rules. Would hold out their team building efforts on unallowable riders. Move on. Build without. Peterborough are really becoming a nuicence club.
  8. Nichols/kennett Rule

    the championship is too strong. The 2nd tier should never have got any stronger than half the top league. Once this happened it upset the balance. the idea of signing a top league 6 point rider on a 12 point average is a lot less appealing. So the issue wouldn't exist. The only way of making that happen would be to convert all averages to pl ones and build the championship to 21.25. Its unpopular with fans of that league but it would give more British nl riders a chance of a step up. Especially if they joined the league on a 1 point average. It's ok for riders to get jobs outside of speedway if it doesn't pay

    Let the tracks all announce their raised admission prices using no tv as an excuse first.

    Both are class riders on their day. both have had injuries too of late. so who is the better as of march this year is really not worth arguing about. its like the morris and kurtz argument too! both very similar ability wise! will know the answer on both as the season unfolds.!

    Have you complained. Surely a complaint would be contacting the company. If it's just on here it's moaning.
  12. Kings Lynn 2018..

    18 pounds doesn't attract new adults. Price has put my mates off in the past. But I think things are going to be ok. It's a shame the announcer from last year left though. He was good at running events like tonight. I liked some of the things robin was saying. He's a good talker. If he can make these plans he's saying work in terms of diet/training then it will be interesting to see how the riders improve. He was right in saying be more positive about the sport because it will influence the outside medias view. If a potential sponsor was to ever come on the forum I'm pretty sure the negativity at times would dissuade them. I know everybody is entitled to an opinion but we do all have a part to play. I think if we are challenging for the play offs then we will be doing well. I think it's a team build with progression in mind. Wouldn't be surprised if many of these riders are here for a couple of seasons

    I hate being negative about things but I've seen changes just not good 1s! every press release seems to have been botched. signings leaking early in the media, lambert moaning about signing,even the supporters meeting email said it was friday. I hope the improvements aren't just social media based. Not all of us do the social media thing other than maybe Facebook. i don't twitter snapchat or instigram and my phone isn't a modern 1! this whole e ticket thing caused me problems! new age is all well and good but with a 40+ crowd that could alienate some! Im all for being patient and stuff though. All i care about is the 15 minutes on track though really. so all these other exciting new announcements in terms of social media don't really excite me. Sign an exciting challenging team or drop prices. thats the best initiative! meh. rant over.

    I see Bjarne Pedersen is riding in the ben fund meeting without having a team place. Maybe he is a b choice? Whats his average. Is it Championship league friendly too? Just weird riding in a meeting with not having a team place? Unless us kings lynn fans are getting a little over enthusiastic expecting to have niels announced at our fans meeting.
