Those of us of a certain age would not only agree with the term not being offensive, but would have been quite flattered by it. 

Its a generational term and one from a pre PC age when we tended to be more laid back and less offended by everything in general. 

A time that benefitted from no social media or mobile phones and if you had a phone that didn't have a party line you were considered quite posh lol. 

As for Lawson many of us had hairstyles like his back in the day and it was the norm

Time to move on. 

Guess it depends if Lawson himself finds it offensive. If he doesn't then yes time to move on.

Poole Speedway will be live streaming for 2022 as early as Friday 25th March when the club's Press and Practice Day will be broadcast.

Confirming the initiative, Poole promoter Dan Ford said, "this will be the first time we will be in a position to bring the events of our Press and Practice Day into the homes of supporters and we are offering this particular event as a free of charge view. This will be a forerunner to a live streaming service which we will be operating during the forthcoming season, with our first meeting, the Bjarne Pedersen Final Lap on Wednesday (30th) followed by the Knockout Cup home tie on April 6th against Plymouth. We will be making further announcements throughout the season."

I can't remember if it was someone in the chat section of Piratecasts live show or if they said it themselves, but it was thought that more team news for that meeting might be announced at the weekend.

I'm sure he's been called far worse and coped with it.

There were a lot of unfair rumours about him last winter on some social media that eventually went away that he seemed to handle with great dignity to his credit.

Just popped in to view some comments, regarding Mr Lawson's long hair, think in the past used to be a rule saying hair had to be kept inside the Helmut, looks like this rule is long gone as the said person would have needed a helmet 3 sizes bigger

I think that is highly unlikely

That stream was good. The Amazon Prime live tennis from the US freezes a lot more than that one. So good job, whoever is doing it!
