Stop this mess and make both teams use R/R

So you can't have a rider that has ridden for a play off team that has been knocked out but it is ok for a rider to ride for both teams in the final, who makes these rules? Primary school kids would see how stupid it is.

I really don't understand why they stop this from happening in the ko cup but not the playoffs?? Both are two legged, what's the difference??

One despairs the people who run the sport and allow this sort of thing are a laughing stock

No wonder the sport is going downhill if this is allowed.The question of integrity  in sport becomes an issue surely.

Perhaps in the next few hours common sense will prevail and the matter resolved if not to those who have sanctioned this ‘get your heads out of your buttocks and leave before the AGM because if this is the sort of rational thinking you display then lord help us”

is it really April 1st

 

 

 

The thing is, it was the BSPA Chairman, Buster Chapman, who has asked Adam Ellis to ride at Poole, complete in the knowledge that he is turning out for Poole just 48 hours later, live on tv in from]nt of tens of thousands at home on tv he knew this. But clearly he just doesn’t care. No thought for the credibility of the sport. No thought to what the casual fan would think. No thought for his own fans or the fans of the other team in the final, who see this showcase event now as a complete shambles.

Buster Chapman had other options. He could even had gone with r/r. It would have shown integrity.

I am not saying this to try and get an advantage over our rivals, but for the good of a sport we all love and enjoy. Win or lose, the integrity of the sport is far more important than winning or losing the final. I would much rather lose in a great battle which came across fair and square with everyone talking about it for the right reasons, then watch this sorry mess unfold right before our eyes.

Something needs to be seriously done here. For the good of the sport. Immediately.

He will probably be turning out for Lynn.

Complete farce! Lynn management knew Ellis was riding for Poole, had other options, but chose to wreck the showcase event. Disgraceful!

It is bonkers. Surely the  teams and riders can sort it out that both teams use 1 rider each for both legs.

Maybe Poole didn't want Lynn to use either !. Who knows....in the interests of the sport 1 for each team would be the best thing to happen.

On the other hand Ford uses the rules to the max and he would of done the same I guess..

Who is the deputy chairman?? Can he not stop this, can the others in the committee have a vote? Shame on you Buster, shame on you! First you screw over Chris Holder and Batch and now you screw over a good final.

The deputy chairman is the most inept of the lot, you can’t change the rules now they should have been put in place at the beginning of the season.

it manes a complete joke of the final but to blame kings Lynn is utterly ridiculous.

No he wouldn’t. He would never pull such a stunt and would have chosen someone else or gone with r/r. Matt is peed with the sport because of the way it has been run. This, tonight, has proven why he is peed.
