How does Wallinger keep getting so many clubs signing him?! When will they learn he’s unreliable and doesn’t even score points. Barely any in the Championship and on a 4pt NL average!

I gather he has some top engines and is known to loan them out to team mates.

Wallingers signing been refused by the bspa I don’t no the reason behind it but it’s been put on the Plymouth fans forum by the promoter.

So a precedent has been set today that you cannot sign a NL rider, as a Championship team, when he has the same race night as you. Tbf this is also following the Cook Peterborough/Belle Vue scenario from the other season.

The BSPA make it up as they go along... anything goes if your face fits

BSPA acting fairly, following a precedent and indeed, sticking up for the little club. 

Full marks!

So Redcar want to sign the rider, Plymouth happy to let him go ( eventually ) but the BSPA put a stop to it......

only in speedway would this make sense.

And you think that Plymouth fans and management will welcome Wallinger back with open arms and he will be very happy to go back to a set of fans who have given nothing but abuse to his proposed move to his home town club?

Really?

Stand by for another ' retirement '.

No I don't. But the decision will make others think about who they take and when. People on here have regularly criticised the casual way that riders are being signed and dismissed, and expecting the BSPA to do something about it. Look at the recent pages for evidence.  Do if you do, do if you don't.

about time an independent body was brought in , rather than decisions made by promotor`s of teams with conflicting interests
