    With your views on Covatti, is there any chance you could choose 6 numbers between 1 & 49............. no reason
  2. Excuse my ignorance but who would decide as to whom is eligible for the 2.5% discount? Could the other 4 promoters have ganged up, said Harris rode 3rd tier too long ago?

    Fair enough, to be honest I don't know much about Tungate, he's kind of passed me by.........

    I hear what you're saying......... I don't particularly believe cost was the issue...... I (and I have nothing to back this up) think it was easier, if there was a bit of an argument re the 2.5% reduction, to jiggle things around. Plus I remember reading that NKI wasn't too impressed with the effect the KL track was having on his shoulder.

    Any possibility (and this is pure conjecture on my part) that it could be Tungate to KL, Harris to Ipswich and NKI to Peterborough?
  6. Woffinden....... (sorry, but I can dream......)
  7. I'm disappointed. I just hope whoever Panthers get will be an entertainer.......personally I'd rather see someone slide off (as long as they're ok) trying to swoop around the outside than settle for a safe second (naive maybe but then I guess I can be).......... I wonder if the whole 2.5% reduction was misunderstood, and therefore Panthers didn't fit the points limits..... but rather than come out and slag off the ruling body, Buster has bit his tongue and reshuffled his three teams....... what average is Tai on ?

    Dude, totally agree.....I know it's a cliche, but happiness (in Speedway) really is a 40-38 (I know that's old talk, but you get my drift)....... bring on that team at The Showground.....
  9. Completely agree re the entertainment factor.......plus, selfishly, Thursdays work really well for me...... excited for the first time in ages......
  10. On a similar vein...... John Wayne was a Yugoslav .......... thats always my counter to the 'opinion' statement
  11. Hi all, I'm quite the lurker on here, so please be gentle........... Reading what you have posted has made me think about averages...... I'm not disputing what you have said at all, and this post is more for discussion than argument (for want of a better word), however......... To my thinking, (and I'm happy to accept I may be being niave about it), averages are a finite number, in the sense that in a heat, some wins, someone comes last...... for that heat the winner has an average (I know, not strictly true, nothing 'average' about it) of 12.00, the person finishing last 0.00 Here's where it goes a bit hypothetical, (but bear with me, because I do bring it back to a point) but let's say next year, 14 of the GP riders are picked into 2 teams, and go racing around the the country once a week at various tracks, in an exhibition type league......... it would be possible that at the end of the season, 20 meetings on, someone could have anaverage of 0.00.....last in every heat....... he'd look terrible on paper, yet in reality he'd be one of the best riders in the world....... and in 50 years time, when our grandchildren look back, all they would see would be the 0.00 average..... they would look down their nose at said rider........ Not sure if my point is coming through, hope you understand what I am trying to say...... and it's not meant as an argument, just a thought, I'm defo not disagreeing with your point On a side note, as I was working a nightshift last Saturday, and 'watched' the GP on updates, I've only caught up with the programme today........ for those who say Tai isn't British, he sure looked British on the podium showing off his Union Jack on his race suit...... I love the bloke
