I've jut read LaurenceRogers posts and can't see what he's said to upset anyone, I think it's a good thing when officials give there opinion even if we don't agree with them

My 1st season last year following Plymouth after moving from Essex. Laurence and Mark Phillips received nothing but praise from the Devils fans as were very open and honest with the fans on the Devils forum and everyone seemed to find their attitude refreshing. From what i saw last season Laurence was a very approachable top bloke and certainly will be a loss to Plymouth this year.

Laurence is one of the best men in the sport at NL level and worked with many top riders too, good luck to him

A very sad aspect of the BSF is the loudmouths who love to insult all and sundry in the sport who are actually trying to make it work, while very conveniently hiding behind stupid false names and claiming 'freedom of speech'. 

When someone working in the sport and prepared to talk openly under their own name here then tackles them they then hide behind accusations of 'unprofessionalism'. Yes, this is a forum. No it doesn't give you the right to behave like a poisonous anonymous coward and squeal when someone rightly stands up for themselves and bites back. 

Good luck to Laurence in his new job. I had no idea he had the divine power to shut tracks though ;-)

 

 

 

I was the one that said it was very unprofessional and i have said nothing poisonous or personal about him as i do not know him personally . If your referring to the claims that hes a track shutter i have no idea what that is all about.

Well said Rob McCaffery.  Too few people on this forum actually seem to appreciate the work that is done to present the sport by a few

dedicated individuals, some of whom invest thousands of pounds in pursuit of success as well as contributing countless hours of work.

Having known one or two promoters at a personal level way back in the past, I have a totally different viewpoint.

Was very concerned looking at the Swindon fixtures that Mitchel Davey would potentially be missing for at least half our home fixtures this year. However, just read on the Brummies website we are planning to run on some Tuesdays next year. Relieved to see this is a way round the problem for the team, even though it means I'll miss some meetings due to having other commitments on a Tuesday. Damn !!!

Its great that Liam is back on board,but i would prefer him riding!!... Good luck to him though..

As for Davey, he has 11 Swindon fixtures on a wednesday out of 22 available home dates for the Brummies up till September,

i think we will only have  2 or 3 Tuesday meetings, no worry for me as i used to attend the old PB on a Monday and i think a Friday?,

why do teams miss a Tuesday for fixtures i don,t know....                                      Biggest worry is Hume,s Ipswich away fixtures as he

rides on a Thursday  25 times, a Sunday 3 times and Saturday once, think we will miss him away quite a few times.!!!!? unless the fixtures

are worked out  perfectly.

Think you should be alright with Hume? Only Isle Of Wight run on a Thursday? If he only has 3 Sunday clashes & 1 Saturday the very worst case is he would miss Buxton, Covenry & Mildenhall Away on the Sundays & Stoke/Eastbourne on the one Sat. However if the planners cannot negate at least half of that i would be worried.

I have no doubts that Liam will most probably turn a few wheels for us at some point during the season?

Still no confirmation looks like spooner which means another season of unattached number 7s i would suspect by the way something i do not agree with should name a number 8.
