Anyway is there any Poole fan who isn't too mad at the moment tell me how far the travelodge on Holes Bay Road is from the stadium please.

Other side of the huge roundabout isn't it? Though there are roadworks starting tomorrow on Hunger Hill.

Doesn’t add any fire at all. Its like a bucket of water has been thrown over it. 

You only quoted a 1 line of my post.. Any thoughts on the rest.. If Ford was asked about using 1 rider each for boths legs in the interest of the sport. And if Ford had  said  no. Do you think that's unsporting SS?.

The rules should say no. If a rider is booked to take place in the final, that ride should automatically be unavailable to the other team. Simple as that. 

If the injuries had been reversed, and we had lost a rider today, I would think it abhorent to use a rider who is riding for the opposition in the other leg.

I am most certainly not the only one who thinks this. Facebook and twitter is also in meltdown in the speedway world.

I think Poole would do anything within the rules to win, and would do the same if it benifited them.. How dare Lynn do it once !!. You can't blame Lynn if its legal.

You  seem dodge questions you don't like. The rules should say, but they don't.

No they don’t as I said earlier. For some unfathomable reason they are there at 18.2.4 but there’s an element of confusion.

A decent promotion wouldn’t have caused this sorry mess. Be honest. Kings Lynn promotion have caused this. I understand you want to defend your promotion but this is undefendable to be honest.

The tenure of Mr Chapman as the chairman of the BSPA has been nothing short of disastrous. It appears he now wants to cap the worst period of British Speedway governance with a league title win for his own club. What a fitting end it would be if his stadium was devoid of supporters and, he lost a bucket load of cash. He could watch his miserable firework display all on his own!!!

Quicker someone like Barry Bishop is at the helm of British speedway the better.

Middlo far from happy with this situation. Says it makes the sport an effin joke. No rule in place to stop it happening. Said a lot more not for this forum!

Yet the same Promoters will spend all season using Mickey Mouse rules and see nothing wrong with them..

And fans will spend all season colluding with them, pretending what they are watching has some semblance to a bona fide national sports championship... 

And pay circa 20 quid each for the privilege each time they attend...

The fans therefore 100% get the sport they deserve..

No point complaining now..

On the plus side, the Sport (in Britain) has no credibilty left so hasn't lost any by its latest self inficted nonsense...

Incredible in what should be a huge positive week for the sport with Tai's win will end up being a huge embarrassment...

So can someone please tell me what King’s Lynn have done wrong?

Should they go into the biggest 2 meetings with r/r and hand the league to Poole?? 

The majority of Poole fans having a go at Lynn is laughable all the rule bending and stunts pulled over the years and now King’s Lynn have broke NO rules at all and the Poole fans think that Ellis shouldn’t ride in the best interest of the sport!!! You have to laugh at the double standards of the fools on the south coast. I’m sure if it was the other way round not one Poole fan would moan about the sports credibility.

How many riders are available to Kings Lynn for tomorrow??? Hardly any. So the Kings Lynn promotion should ‘ in the interests of the sport’ not book the best guest available lol

Poole has it easy in the semis against a weakened Somerset and have now seen a gp rider replaced by a third heat leader and they panicking.

I love the mob from the south coast with the party lines all set up now...... we won despite Kings Lynn using Ellis / we lost because Kings Lynn used Ellis....... just delete as appropriate.

Poole fans thinking Kings Lynn should just hand the trophy to them! 

Kurtz injured first .....Poole can get best guest available

Iversen injured........how dare Kings Lynn get the next best guest!!

Come on you Stars

Should have allowed Somerset and Belle Vue riders available too, now they're out of the play offs, nearly every po final is ruined by Injuries, to keep the little credibility left in the sport RR for both teams would be sensible, perhaps in the future a Mickey Mouse toy should be the prize.
