    You are purely guessing what might happen ..... you are explaining jack all ..... probably.

    I know I am not Steve but, personally, have to say I really enjoyed the Stewkesbury era ...... 1985 onwards from memory ..... after the Chandler promotion collapse aided by Mike Lee's ban. Not being able to see Sam Ermolenko progress was outweighed by return of Martin Gates, retention of Kevin Smith & Stan Bear, and progression of a host of youngsters ..... raw Aussies & my fave Dave Biles. Cost in terms of my wallet was not an issue in those days given quality of entertainment ..... thus would have no issue watching Championship as opposed to Premiership provided racing was exciting ..... and there ain't much to beat ATM. I guess most will have same view.

    Poole v Leicester Prem A. 30/5/18

    "Could have" or did ? ..... don't talk bollocks, talk FACTS.

    It is not worth trying to debate with MFF .... he is clearly the font of all knowledge and everyone else knows absolutely nothing. Shanes selection was obviously a numbers game ploy never ever seen before anywhere ...... and being replaced by (a higher averaged) Nielsen had absolutely nothing to do with others under performing (which created the ability to make the change).

    Winning the league or not winning the league was never going to be purely down to James achieving, or not achieving, his 2.00 point average was it .....

    How anybody could have expected James to do more than he did is beyond me ..... only his second season in the Premiership with only NL experience before that with Kent. A classic case of the numbers game ..... he got the team place as he fitted in with the others/Sundstrom and it is as simple as that. The fact that he could be replaced was purely down to others (including Sundstrom) not performing. It isn't that difficult to understand.

    Barry Hearn....

    Agree with your first point - we cannot blame these riders, who are riding to earn a living not a hobby (National League excepted) as the cost of maintaining equipment and keeping up with latest regulations has increased way beyond revenues being generated in this country ..... even allowing for the Sky input. Whilst "Joe Public" might want to see the top riders, the promoters have not got deep enough pockets (in the absence of enough revenue) to entice these top riders to ride in the UK. The money on offer in Poland & Sweden (to a degree) seems to outweight what 99% of UK promoters can afford. New ideas are indeed required .... but have been for a while now and one has to wonder if it will all be too little too late. I hope not.

    A bit harsh !! Ginger yes but not a moron - are you barking at the moon at the moment my love ? Oh no sorry you're a bloke ..... we don't get pmt (allegedly) .... Perhaps if you provided some constructive comments it might help ?

    Agreed - but the competition is on the thin side ..... Sam Ermo is too old to threaten KT's position ..... aside from struggling to put a coherant sentance together ......

    Swc - The Race Off

    Eeeeerrmmmm ..........so we should also say that the Danes blew it but not using Bjarne in view of his experience / past track record / blah blah ?? Blooding the youngesters was a brave move ........IMHO a very good move and much better than using the "same old" just cos they've been around a bit and are someone's no. 1 (but riding well off form / below capabilities). The team did bloody well and we should all be very proud instead of moaning - we nearly got to the final FFS - much better than last year. Seems there is no pleasing some people.

    I was on the 2nd bend that night with my dad, brother and our friend. Like others have posted, the crash seemed so innocuous and the silence that decended will always be remembered and all four of us walked home to Parkstone without saying hardly a word. A few weeks later we were at home to Ipswich and I remember Eric getting a nudge as they hit the first turn in one race - sending him straight on. He hit the pole of the overhanging lamp with his chest, bending it back the other way - such was the force of the crash. I thought he was gone too but I think he escaped with broken ribs and a punctured lung - horrific crash. A bit later in the meeting, Pete Smith tried to pass John Louis coming out ogf the fourth bend on the last lap. Unfortunately he seemed to get a truck load of grip and that forced his front whell right up into the air - the result being he hit Louis, sending him onto the greyhound track. Something tells me Christer Sjosten crashed out in heat 2 of that meeting as well ! Sorry .....back to the subject in hand. Whislt I do not have the stats to hand, memory suggets that Kevin had started the season very well indeed and Poole were looking good to finish higher up in the League than usual - the feeling was Kevin was going to be a stalwalt for Poole for many years, in the Pete Smith mould. Sadly missed - rest well Kevin
