As a committed member of supporters club  I need to be assured that the revenue raised  is for the benefit of Panthers and not  for the Chapman trinity as whole

IF, and it's a big IF, Buster is trying to bring down some pay scales across the board then surely that's a good thing for the future of the sport?

it's not a good business model to be paying out more than comes in, no matter who the rider is

Puts a whole new slant on buying a 50 /50 raffle ticket.

I think that's exactly what it is. I would say trying to monopolise the league. Between Kings Lynn, Ipswich and Peterborough and then also the riders on Poole's books they control the vast majority of the division.

Maybe more like a bit of re-distribution of riders among the three teams. Iversen's decision, Tungate's destination, Ipswich struggling to put a side together......

If Chapman had not bought out the two clubs, and put them into the PL thereby keeping it in existence, would anyone else have? So I'm not too convinced it's about trying to dominate the league. Out of the 21 riders which eventually comprise the 3 teams, how many of them will actually be Chapman "assets"? Again, that's still to be known.

Signing a rider +6 weeks ago, promoting a ‘marquee signing’, selling season tickets, then release the rider in order to cut costs. That’s a Pi$$ poor business model.

Well said I couldn't have put it better.

It's dishonest & unforgivable.

I am very disappointed by the news re Harris especially if the rumours on here are true, another example of the contempt  those in charge have for supporters.

Heard a rumour tonight that both Cook and Andersen are now in dispute over proposed  changes to there contracts.

Hope this isnt true as goodness knows whats next to come.

Problem is as you say you heard a rumour.Unfortunately rumours escalate on here 10 fold.Sometimes rumours are best kept a secret until the truth is known.There is always people that like to spread things about even if they know they are untrue.

My interest in the forthcoming season has totally gone, unlikely I will buy a season ticket and possibly will not go at all. Something strange going on over and above the serial shafting of the fans. Peterborough statement  seems strange and wonder whether it comes from usual source and Neil Watson conspicuous by his lack of contribution. Have both he and Ged been Bustered as well as the fans?

Bit like taking a payoff from another promotion to let a rider miss meetings.....

Not really, but considering Chapman blew a gasket over that then he'll look a bit of an arse if overly involved in this cock up. I can't ever recall nobody taking responsiblity for Panthers issues but nobody cleary wants to be associated with this. We get a nameless press release and "A Panthers spokesperson said:" - I'd prefer Panthers supremo, at least that meant someone!

It's not that bad yet Rodders but needs sorting out with some leadership pdq before it really turns sour.
