There are many Rye House fans, myself included, who have lost our club and are devastated by this. Yet it seems to have turned into a crusade by Rob to make himself out to be the most hard done by. It’s sad. And for the record he isn’t. Those who were on the terraces EVERY week and who went away as often as they could in the name of supporting Rye House are (not counting myself as one of that number, as I wasn’t). 

I don’t care about crowds at Belle Vue, or how Coventry are doing at Leicester. They have their own threads. And above all else I don’t care about reading Rob McCaffrey name calling and being a big part of the reason this thread has descended because he can’t enter into a debate without making things personal as opposed to giving a reasoned answer to those who have a different opinion to him. 

well said Ben the fact that our club has gone (and how it has happened) is far more important than all the rubbish being spouted on here. Would like to see some discussion as to how the situation can be reversed as all the hard work getting the club back etc seems to have just been thrown away - I don't care about money/politics etc all I know is somehow the real fans of the club seem to have been taken for granted and I guess we could all see problems coming with the way things were going  but didn't ever think that everything would be thrown away in 2 years.   My real disappointment is that I do not see any way back for the club and as for seeing any speedway there this season there is not a hope in hell

All the clubs could have got round the table and with give and take an agreement reached on the moving of fixtures to help the Rockets. 

Never an option though as Buster said no. I think one or two other clubs, unbelievably were not arsed about them closing.

There are plans to stage some dragons amateur meetings at rye. Wether this happens or not, who knows. I think the first one is scheduled for the end of the month.

Apologies, I didn’t realise they were running up debts last year when running on their preferred racenight. 

The situation is worse than I was aware of. Very sad. Thanks for the heads up.

How could one deduce from your post that you were referring to before this season. " I think one or two other clubs, unbelievably were not arsed about them closing" cannot be prior to this season surely ?  I was talking about this season.

Last season rye only staged 7 meetings on their preferred Saturday race night. The rest were run on Mondays and Wednesday's.

I was referring to this season but you said who would pay the debts. 

I presumed BMR would pay just as they did last year when running on their preferred racenight, but you obviously thought that not possible with your fairy godmother post.

If it were possible they would have paid, hence the big delay from the 1st postponement  -when they had their licence suspended -to the announcement they had finished.

If we were then we should have been going in to the AGM last winter telling the BSPA that we would have to drop down a level if fixed race nights were voted in because it is only viable to host Speedway at the track on a Saturday night.

From what I am told they were doing ok last season. Monday night racing pretty much the main factor in our demise. That and the fact we simply are not a top tier club.

When reverting to pathetic, childish name calling then the argument is lost

people who use  the queens English  to achieve the same end are no better though , there are some who  infrequently visit this forum , but when they do it's in response to some criticism they cannot handle  because they are as I call them Guilded lilies , have to rail against anybody disagrees with them and attempt to polish their own egos by belittling them , usually have a few clucking chicken followers to join their campaign , those people are the most pathetic
