    Did they all have the same provision detailed in black and white in their respective council's plan? It's like saying that the dog track is no go due to noise & other issues? In the unlikely situation that a deal could be done with the owners, PCC could easily work around any environmental/local issues if they put their weight behind the project.

    Depends how much the club wants to fight for its future? If the draft Local Plan was accepted as final without change then the developers have to deal with: Existing Culture, Leisure, Tourism and Community Facilities The loss, via redevelopment, of an existing culture, leisure, tourism or community facility will only be permitted if it is demonstrated that: k. The facility is demonstrably no longer fit for purpose and the site is not viable to be - it's still fit for purpose - redeveloped for a new community facility; l. The service provided by the facility is met by alternative provision that exists within reasonable proximity: what is deemed as reasonable proximity will depend on the nature of the facility and its associated catchment area; - does Norfolk Arena/Mildenhall or Leicester fit that criteria for Peterborough? m. The proposal includes the provision of a new facility of a similar nature and of a similar or greater size in a suitable on or off-site location - there is no provision/proposal unless section l above covers that? So how can Asset Earnings Power Group (AEPG) put out such statement without greater detail? It's a complicated plan with loads of subsections so I guess PCC can make it mean whatever they or the developers wish?

    Well that got a mixed reaction. Only needed a Haha for a full house

    If you've been around long enough you'll know that they tend to know something that they've heard elsewhere that someone else heard from elsewhere etc etc. It's usually uninteresting and nothing that you couldn't have worked out or sourced yourself anyway, as well as missing the important detail. Even if they think they do know something unique then they're almost always wrong.
  5. Meeting was all but over after 5 races though when gating was premium and Panthers failings were all too obvious. Harris is just different class at the EoES and very fast but even he couldn't get round Morris in heat 4. He had build up speed before the cutback & inside pass going in to turn 3. Palm Toft is the only one of that team who's up to that standard on a good day. Panthers were 12 points down at heat 8 but then only lose by 10 points & that all gives some indication of where some of the problems are.
  6. I doubt very much that any money changes hands although if anyone organises a collection to get rid then I'll get my wallet out.

    Not forgetting Pedersen who got paid 39 in 3 play-off fixtures riding at 6.

    It's like all of those sort of awards. They are usually well deserved and correct initially, and probably for a little while afterwards, but the longer it goes on the talent pool often diminishes somewhat and the bar is lowered. Ostrich is worthy of some sort of recognition but is he up there with our former club & world stars? Nowhere near. Probably it's the tag that's wrong and should be renamed around club service in some way?

    The one change that they couldn't afford was losing the ringer at reserve and that's what happened. Didn't the whole team end up down there at some point last season? That's some luxury. That tells you much about where most are now in their career whilst now also being a year older and having to improve their performance against better quality riders as you highlight. That improvement isn't going to happen to riders on the wrong side of the hill. Loyalty is admirable but it was fairly obvious that that would come at a cost in 2022.

    Just paying a rare visit so must have missed that last time if it was there? What's irrelevant? You're a bit of a clown and it's a funny suggestion that gets funnier each time that you say it. Thanks for relieving my boredom though

    Probably because age often brings more bad meetings and excuses than riders of that quality ever had in their younger years. In their prime they usually only had bad races and rode through the pain barrier as the adrenalin of being at the top of their game dulled any pain. Riders at the top of their game are super human. It's only at the end of their career when they are not winning for fun and it all can be a bit of a struggle that they suddenly become just plain and simple human.

    Sorry to hear about your wife. I know that things have been tough for a while now. On the subject of a BB, if you can evidence those conditions and negotiate the online application (perhaps Citizens Advice could help) then you can apply for your own BB because the qualifying criteria was extended recently to include hidden disabilities for those people who fall outside of automatic badge qualification.
