    Quite right. Maybe they could get Chris Morton to help out. Listening to him and how he helped recreate the old Hyde Road circuit when they built the NSS was fascinating.

    And the BLRC should be at the zoo park, not to mention the NLRC at Brandon, coach competition and all.

    You say that making this public is not helpful. I know of many instances of, usually junior riders, being treated badly and nothing is said in public. If you advocate that this is the right course of action, you are condoning such behaviour by the promoters and powers that be and it will continue. Unchallenged. I'm not sure if the lad said more than has been reported here, but the quoted FB post is quite restrained in my opinion. It lays out the facts as he knows them and leaves us to make our own judgement. Of course, there are always two sides to every argument. Perhaps KL could, dispassionately, put their side? In fact KL have said, "Jake (Mulford) has some grasstrack commitments abroad which means he has to dash off early on Friday morning, so I felt it would be prudent to go with Jason for what’s a really important match for us – we can’t afford to take any chances.” How is a rider travelling the day after a meeting, taking a risk?

    We could have a competition to design his race jacket with all the clubs logos on it

    I was working on one of those. But the program developed a bug and the crowd invaded the track after a doubtful referee decision.

    If the stadium will be full just with the locals, where are the travelling fans going? Just asking Seriously, I would agree that Sheffield could be a good option. But wherever it is, don't stage it in the week. Gone are the days we could fill Brandon on a Wednesday for the British Final. If we really want to sell this to the wider fan base as a serious event that they will want to attend in person, surely it has to be Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. Let's aim for the 4's party atmosphere effect. And, we could then have some "forum meet ups" at a pub somewhere like in the old days

    I used to have family in Swindon and they considered I was "up north"..... in Coventry!

    Don't worry Lisa. By my reckoning, if the next victory is as long away as the last one, you don't need to start worrying until Wednesday 11th February 2071

    Leicester Lions 2022 Line up

    I think that's an academic question, where Leicester are concerned. Given the way the two parted company after the Newcastle vs Leicester match in 2021, I can't see Ty ever coming back to Leicester. Certainly while SD is the team manager anyway.

    10.6.22 - Scunny v Glasgow, League

    I agree. Ben is an untried asset and you complain when he scores 9, including two race wins. Sack him. There would be a long queue to sign him, believe me. I'll take Danyon too. Cookie is brilliant, sometimes. Not sure I could cope with the moods though.

    Fair point. Just glad I'm not a TM, eh?
