You’ve done it again. “The bigger picture” is your expression.

You made out in your own words that Ford was making rules that for the future of the sport  rather than for his own club .. so yes the big picture

Read my words again.  I said driving clubs out of business wasn’t going to be good for the sport , I didn’t say Ford was making all rules for the future of the sport rather than his own club.  If you are going to quote someone quote them verbatim instead of your own  interpretation of it . You do this all the time as a distraction when we get down to questions you dont want to answer,.

My interpretation was spot on  . What are these questions on this subject for example  i have not answered by the way ? looking forward hearing them but i expect we might have one these distraction posts you are so fond of .

Never known someone get so upset and narky as you do ,, take your own advice its a only speedway forum not life and death

All this stuff is in the past, it's the future we should be worrying about.

I'm not Ford's biggest fan and certainly don't agree with some of the suspect antics he's carried out over the years, BUT he's now doing everything he can to save Poole Speedway.  So no matter who you are or what you think give the guy some credit.

Losing our beloved team would be a huge loss, not only to me personally but to UK speedway.  We've lost enough teams in recent years for goodness sake!!

Personally i honestly think he has a hard task ahead of him .and that is last thing we want to see is our team disappear.

No not al all narky , just having a bit of forum fun trying to get you to back up your claims, instead of twisting everything that is said. For example  I asked whether you n thought Coventry manipulated the rules   and you replied that they didnt break them which obviously not the same thing as manipulating  them. 

Anyway Cityrebel who I like and Phillip Rising are saying its all in the past now so we wont bore them any more and move on. Not important after 10 yearsB)

It's all very well saying it's all in the past but that's exactly what someone will form their present opinions from

If you feel severely wronged by someone or a situation even if it was 10 years ago then it's no surprise if you have a little safrican american when you see something going awry with the perceived perpetrator

Speedway as a 'professional' sport has produced so many farces over years, it would make a great soap opera. Having no team to support helps me deal with this. I've had plenty of disappointments with the sport, i am now battle hardened to it. I still enjoy the racing and the social side of it, Scunthorpe on Sunday was a perfect example of this. Speedway isn't worth taking too seriously.

The good thing is that Ford will work very hard to try and ensure the Pirates survive otherwise any hope that one day he can sell them (might be a long shot anyway these days) will be gone

Reading the thread it's like a de ja vu unfolding.

You feel you have read all these words before.

The situation unfolds in an inevitable manner has it has done regarding other clubs that have ceased to exist, despite each clubs 'certainty', it won't happen this time around.

Let's hope it doesn't happen this time around

I think EIA needs a reminder of what was going on around that time.Ford was unhappy that Coventry had managed to keep Shamek at reserve for so long, IMO they used the very same criteria that Ford himself used many times (ie they played Ford at his own game)and he didn't like it .Pawlicki's 16 +1  did for Poole on the second leg meeting and Ford reacted by taking in his firework display, turning off the hot water to the visitors shower room & removing the Champagne from the bar area. Hardly the reaction  expected from a mature person.

Then came the sudden rapidly arranged meeting by a select few who connived a change in the conversion factor for lower league riders moving up, effectively screwing up bees deals for two riders already in place. I've seen comments that the teams shouldn't be selected before the AGM but we all know that it was the accepted way of doing things for years ,and probably stilll is now. We also had the re assessment of Pawlicki's average, another very unfair decision. 

Despite all the protests to the contrary it seems blatantly obvious that Ford was the Prime Mover in all that went on in the winter of discontent, & to add insult to injury he then proceded to register Kildemand as a poole rider whilst the bees were in the middle of a team shuffle mid season 2011. Kildemand went public and stated that he had no knowledge of his transfer to Poole as he hadn't even spoken to Ford. But it did have the desired effect as it stopped Coventry using him again.Those are just some of the moves of a very underhanded & bitter man.

Wasn't Ford also having an affair with the admin lady at the BSPA at the time as well?

I recall a new account was set up on the forum which spilled all the beans over the episode but was quickly removed by the moderators as it didn't paint Ford or the sport in a good light.

No.

There was a rumour involving two speedway administrators, but Ford was not one of them.
