    I didn't comment on Lakeside's apparent 'free' use of Nick Morris, I was more concerned with his vow to make life difficult for everyone around him as a response to perceived injustices. It's unprofessional, counter productive and solves nothing, as well as making him sound like an idiot. He's moaning about laying in bed that he was at least partly responsible for making. My club and stadium (Coventry) is on the recently deceased list, so I'm losing interest in the sport hourly to be fair. I happen to think that Coventry's demise is a massive factor in all this coming to a head. The day British Speedway's heart stopped beating.

    Conversely, I find reprehensible Russell's comments a total embarassment that typify why I'm currently so ashamed to have wasted so much of my life on this sport. It's the 'us and them' mentality that has brought the sport in this country to the brink of despair. 'If they think they're going to get away with it, they're not'. I mean, what sort of quote is that to be coming out with?
  3. http://www.swindonrobins.co/news.php?extend.3124 This is possibly one of the most embarrassing things I've ever seen relating to British Speedway, and that's saying something. From the cringeworthy garden shed production of the video to the awful amateurish interviewer, the apparent hen party going on in the background and that's before you get to the interview itself. British Speedway is absolutely dead in the water and needs putting out of its misery if this is the best it can do. Utterly disgraceful, and whoever decided that video was fit for an official website should be shot immediately.
  4. Aggregate scores after 42 heats. Top team goes to final, 2nd and 3rd to a semi final. Winner of 2nd v 3rd goes into the final. Champions decided purely on result of last heat regardless of points scored in the first 42 heats.

    Brummies v Bee's Wed 30th May NT

    You think that people not supporting a guy who has allegedly alligned himself with the developers that want to build on Brandon is 'cutting off your nose to spite your face'? Interesting. Regardless of your love for the club or sport, why would you chose to give such a person your money? I haven't been to any of the 'home' meetings. I know people that have, and they have confirmed all bar a couple of them have been utter rubbish. Leicester's crap anyway, but a slick, dusty track on Sunday afternoon doesn't appeal to most people anyway. Some people claim that the NL is a breath of fresh air. It isn't. That's why not many people watch it. Riding at Leicester is not a long term plan for the survival of the club. It's a pointless excercise unless it's being done in conjunction with the campaign group's excellent efforts to save the stadium, which it isn't.
  6. Lucky we've got a few anoraks left that follow the sport in this country that care about the shambolic way it's presented and the disgusting state of the stadiums we're watching it in eh? Applying the rules is a basic necessity of any serious sport surely? Hope some of these riders that don't make a fortune riding on the continent have other qualifications to fall back on because speedway will be semi pro at best in the UK in a few years.
  7. They don't enforce 12.11 either. A set of 4 Helmets (or helmet covers) on which advertising is not permitted, other than the manufacturer’s name, in these colours: Red, Blue, White and Yellow / Black; the RAL Reference Numbers being: 3020, 5017, 9010 and 1023 respectively. Riders are constantly failing to turn out in yellow and black in favour of yellow, which is a completely different colour with a different ref no. Again, people will say it doesn't matter but failure to apply such rules regarding appearance makes the British arm of the sport look a disorganised mess. Presentation of the sport in Sweden and Poland, and application of the rules, knocks ours into a cocked hat.

    Poole v Leicester Prem A. 30/5/18

    It'll be the Kenneth Bjerre that looks just like Chris Harris. The great British Speedway farce rumbles on.

    Fixed night farce-how much longer

    Bacause, apart from a handful, the stadiums have the appearance of rubbish dumps. Was at Swindon last night and there is debris and junk laying around all over the place down the back straight and around the 3rd bend round to the pits.
  10. When was that amended. If so, what's the point of yellow and black existing as it isn't used anywhere else in the world? Edited to add, the SCB regulations confirm that Yellow is NOT premitted. Both Yellow and Yellow and Black were permitted a few years back but they tightened it up to improve identification. They are clearly now not bothering to enforce it. Also, the crowd was about 1500 tops, which is still good in these laughably dire times for British Speedway.
  11. Dire, soul destroying bore of a meeting this far. Only talking point is the fact that we don't enforce helmet colour rules in this country. Doyle winning heat 12 in a yellow helmet. Must have forgotten his yellow and black helmet cover.

    Poole 2018

    Even if he wanted to come here, doubt Leszno would allow it. They don't pay their star riders hundreds of thousands of zlotys to have them come over here and get injured on our awful tracks.

    Premier Sports will be going HD in July on Virgin, along with the launch of Freesports in SD & HD. "Premier Sports is available in 16 million UK homes across Sky and Virgin platforms and to everyone via the Premier Player https://www.premierplayer.tv/ while FreeSports will be available to 22 million UK homes from next season across seven different platforms. In addition, FreeSports will turn High Definition on Sky and Virgin from July." http://www.premiersports.com/pro-14/pro-14/
  14. A change of promotion would be the best option! I know people that went to Buxton and the island that haven't been to a 'home' meeting yet as they won't give Horton a penny.. I suspect a fair few will attend Monmore next Monday as well.
  15. The low crowds aren't really a surprise. I know fans of other clubs think that Bees fans should just be turning up regardless, but we have a unprecedented situation/shambles going on whereby three parties are involved in the demise of Brandon and a campaign group working independently of the stock car and speedway promoters to try and save the place. The promotion have put people so offside over the last few years that it was never going to work. I would wager that some of the Storm crowds at Brandon in 2016 were not much more than 150. Coventry fans had already voiced their disapproval of National League racing when it was on their doorstep, so how can it work 30 miles down the road? Many of the NL meetings at Brandon were run as a total shambles, only getting to heat ten and some, which some of us paid for in advance, weren't even staged. Horton is reaping what he has sown over the years I'm afraid.
