Will the premiership start on time?

Nick Morris going home tonight as well.

Does their work Visa detail a specific role to be done over here?

Would make sense if they are going home as they may not be able to get alternative employment?

Hence 'no work' no income?

It would also suggest that this isn't going to be a 'few weeks' of an issue..

Very short season from July to October no playoffs or cup competitions

could have GPs every weekend to get them in and no Speedway of Nations

People have been ringing up 111 because they have been using kitchen appliances made in China, and my local Chinese takeaway is 75% down on customers. Human ignorance has no bounds :rolleyes:

I would think so. Plus you would want to be with loved ones at this stage because you don't know what is going to happen from now on.

I had two women literally fighting over the last packet of paracetamol in my shop last night..

One woman picked it up and another snatched it from her as she had gone for it at virtually the same time.. 

They kicked off an argument and the one who got there seconds late wouldn't give it to the other woman so the one who had got there first gave the other a proper good right hander to the head, knocking her clean over and she landed like a snotty heap on the floor..

I would suggest she needed the paracetamol after all..

A certain irony. .:D

Perhaps league meetings are scrapped and each track runs a British Championship individual event with every rider left over here in the U.K. drawn to compete in x number of meetings. A weekly draw of eligible riders for those tracks that are still able to run. In effect you could see a Jason Crump quality of ride drawn to ride at the Isle if Wight. Spread the riders around to ensure as many tracks as possible can put on a good meeting and see some decent revenue. It really does not matter which track operates in which league, time for all to pull together for the good of the sport. I am sure something could be worked out if league meetings are a no go and better people than me can come up with a formula.

After the bspa meeting on tues and with the number of riders not traveling here from europe already, I would not expect any meetings in the UK until an all clear for spectators at sporting events is announced by the govt.

Thought it was now on Eurosport & talk on updates(Ben Fund) is that Sky & BT have lost out to Amazon Prime.

From next week speedway will be banned unless it is limited to 500 spectators, so that's a major loss making venture for most tracks with the riders that will be available.

and how do the IOW afford Jason Crump, this is speedway, no way will a promoter who could be making money subsidise the IOW

The other problem is that individual meetings are not very attended, so maybe the 500 gate limit would work in this case

If it gets suspended for a few months until June, could we see a reduced fixture list of the Premiership only riding 1 Home 1 Away & the Championship being just regional(North/South divide) then top 2 or 4 go to semi finals or quarter finals depending on number of teams.

What ever it looks like it has got to be a meaningful competition to get people to watch

So you don't think it will get worse then eh?

I'm saying your attitude to people in the way you reply is appalling and frankly unnecessary.
