Peterborough Panthers 2019

Recommended Posts

With the right replacement Panthers could quite conceivably be stronger.  It still stinks how this has been done though.

IMO lies more lies and subterfuge ,lies and deceit seems to be the default position for those in charge of our sport.

 

 Probably they will blame Brexit and Theresa May

It's not the lies it's the untold truths that are being withheld from supporters . Speedway promoters are like a cross between politicians and dodgy secondhand car dealers .

I won’t hold my breath.  

I apologise :t:

The whole situation though is an absolute stinker. May be that now Buster is in full control Neil Watson doesn't have a job anymore? What could he add if so??

No doubt after this latest fiasco he would be happy to stand down , he's been used in my opinion.

Either that or Diane Abbott is doing the accounts and Stanley Unwin the PR:

"Now, as eve on his deep approach, his eye on the moon. Alltime sometime deept joy of a full moon scintyladen dangly in the heavenly bode. But now only half! So, gathering all behind him the hintermost, he ploddy-ploddy forward into the deep complicadent fundermold of the forry to sort this one out.”

Put the words 'slag' or 'zuzel' in there and you would have had the Google translation as reported in Poland...:)

 It's the BSPA themselves, not just Chapman, who own Pboro and Ippo I'm sure: bought, on paper, purely to keep the league going.

Maybe that's whats behind the 'BSPA Ltd' plan mentioned at the AGM?

ie 'own' every rider..?

Then do what's needed to spread them about around the teams to try and make it competitive?

Efffectively rider control but without the name, (and stigma)..?

And all teams under one central commander controlling budgets and spending to ensure continuation of the sport?

To Ipswich? 

It absolutely stinks if Harris ends up at either Lynn or Ipswich if he does this is the precise reason why one man shouldn’t effectively own 3 clubs in a 7 team league . If he was was to end up at either club it’s another nail in Speedway’s credibility coffin .

To me it makes perfect sense.  Weddings in New Zealand don’t come cheap. ;)

So Buster says On the money he is getting at Boro is too expensive.

 

Now he has Harris by the short and curlies.  This is what is on the table for Harris, take it or leave it.  

This is Speedway nearest thing to price fixing.

Harris has a choice to make.  Take it or leave it.  His call.

Get the feeling Buster is using Harris as an example.

Oh Yes He Is! In the pantomime of UK speedway - which is what it has become. Buster will continue to ensure that a contract is not worth the paper it was written on. Was there one, in fact, a contract? Definitely making an example of a rider who dares to do an Oliver! Who did Harris make the deal with and was that person really in charge of Pboro? Oh No He Wasn't. Ipswich next to feel the wrath of the Main Man?
