Didn't have the problem before the playoffs, champions top of the league,bring back the Gold Cup! :rolleyes:

No thanks to the gold cup, whilst the play offs may not be the fairest way to decide the title, it does gives the club's a big payday and give the fans the big meetings to watch at the end of the season. 

It's not like (unlike many other criticisms) a phenomenon unique to speedway, with increasing numbers of sports using similar formats.

Some sports it works, others it donesnt. For example I have been completely turned off by British Superbikes since they introduced the showdown.

I think Play offs like Gp's instead of a one off world championships provide more positives to speedway compared to negatives, no matter how nostalgic any of us get.

nice to see the end of season bash is not been organised by that group of old boring stick in the muds that continue to hold the club back .

There moaning on the brummies forum because its not been held in a dead beat club in the middle of no where . The sooner we try build a new younger fan base the better hopefully these dinosaurs will have no input in a few years  particularly that buck bloke who thinks everything he says is law christ he could cure insomnia

However if you were so fed up with that, every year the supporteres club asks for new people to come forward to organise things, I don't ever remember you putting your name forward. (Not that I know your name!) Be interesting to see if you take that offer up this year.

There moaning on the brummies forum because its not been held in a dead beat club in the middle of no where . One person had a little moan. It was all banter as far as I could see. The sooner we try build a new younger fan base the better hopefully these dinosaurs will have no input in a few years  particularly that buck bloke who thinks everything he says is law christ he could cure insomnia  While I agree that we need to build a younger fanbase, and the club has certainly put a great deal of effort into this with some success. You alienate the die hard fans at your peril. As for Mr Buck. Perhaps you don't know your history. Without the tireless work Brian (and others) put in there is a good chance the Brummies would not have been resurected.

Agree about trying to attract a 'new/younger' fan base....the new owners have done a remarkable job this season where that's concerned !!!

I don't know of any other team that invite the kids on to the centre green at the interval ? wished they'd of done it in my day : )

As for Brian Buck ??? He is an absolute legend....imo.....but we're all entitled to our opinion.

Shame they couldn't of made the end of season a four teamer and invited Coventry in to the fold ? it might have increased the attendance ?

It's going to be a 'cold' one : )

Have to agree about the 'clicky' comment : )

I'm banned (permanently) from the Brummies forum for posting my 'thoughts' ....I didn't use any foul/abusive language/words ???

It does seem that you are 'only' allowed to post positive comments on there.

I don't miss being able to post on there....if I did, I could easily set up a new used i.d etc.....but I'm not going to do that, as there's no point.......

The only 'posts' I miss reading are a user name 'Heardy' (very funny) and he intelligently knew how close to the knuckle to take it : )

Its utter rubbish people just start a new thread every other day of a rider from the 50s and say guess who . Another Demonstration of them attempting to exclude people because you would have to be in the over 65 click to possibly know the answer... Never does any of them put a picture up of anything in the last 50 years ..You see these people like ga and buck think are like rogers but there nobody's in fact GA knows little to nothing about speedway as you would know if you ever listened to hes podcasts

What is your favourite 'era' of B'ham Speedway ? what's your best memories ? mine are from the 70's and the early 80's (my favourite track was the old Perry Barr)
