    Have you heard of an oxymoron?

    Gated? Did you watch the race?

    This aged well.

    Rew and Blodorn showing why they should have been given SGP2 wildcards.

    Think the fact it's not actually raining is a factor. If it starts, I bet the attitude changes.

    Run an NDL team?

    Speedway On Tv And The Internet In 2024

    Is your account linked up to Sky correctly? Try logging into your account on a laptop, and going into your account settings (top right drop down, click on 'Account'). It should show you what type of subscription you have, and if it comes via Sky (see picture). If it does state Sky, you'll be getting Discovery+ Standard, which includes all speedway (unless you pay for TNT Sports, then you should get Premium). As for the needing to record stuff, you can re-watch all of the meetings on Discovery+ at your leisure, so it's just as good as having it recorded.

    Speedway of Nations 2024

    Exactly. ROC in 2020 (2021) was very different from AIN (2024). Only 33 athletes in total are expected to compete under AIN in 2024. I'm not saying I agree or disagree with it by the way, just pointing out that it's not just speedway that's preventing Russian athletes from competing as a neutral in team events. I can't think of any other sport that allows it. Individually is very different of course.

    It's not in the Russians case though is it? They don't compete for their country, they compete individually and with no country allegiance. All those 'team events' you mentioned won't include any neutral athletes, other than in an individual capacity (no relays etc.) The 'neutral' flag also covers athletes from more than just Russia (Belarus as well). The neutral flag won't appear in the medals table, either, for that exact reason. So it's a completely different scenario.

    They compete in individual events only, though. There are no team events.

    Poole 2024

    Good grief, did you watch the meeting? Did you see the crash Zmarzlik had? Like to see you continue riding after that.

    Poole 2024

    What are you talking about? Why would Britain take out one of their main two riders for a reserve if they are doing well? A reserve is there to replace a rider who isn't performing as he should, or (hopefully not) gets injured. Simples. If Brennan is replacing Lambert or Bewley then Britain will already be in trouble. Just look at last night. Vicentin came in to replace an underperforming Covatti, and Janowski came in to replace a shaken-up Zmarzlik. You didn't see Sweden bringing in Berntzon for Lindgren or Thorssell.

    Poole 2024

    If either of them get a ride, it will most likely mean Great Britain are not doing very well! So hopefully we don't see them.

    Speedway of Nations 2024

    I don't see why Emil and Artem etc. can't compete in the Grand Prix under a neutral flag (i.e like Medvedev at Wimbledon), but team sports is a completely different matter. If they are competing under a neutral flag, they essentially have no nation to represent and therefore have no team to represent. I can't think of a single sport where neutral athletes compete in a team.

    What's the problem? He was clearly moving and conscious.

    Birmingham v Oxford Mon 8th July PL

    Seeing as the paying public would have only got a £3 refund if it had been called off before heat 8, they probably did them a favour. They don't have to pay for another ticket now!

    Oxford v Ipswich 4th July

    Yep, agreed. Not only that, but then to put out two completely different riders in the super heat. Plus leaving Charles Wright out of both heats. Utterly bizarre. Peter Shroeck is fast becoming one of the worst managers in the league.

    Oxford v Ipswich 4th July

    I'm an Oxford fan and - even with my rose-tinted glasses on - that heat 15 decision was awful. Nicholls rightly disgruntled.

    Oxford Spires 2024

    Almost like they are deliberately trying to weaken the team. Perhaps they're scared they might make the playoffs and have to pay the riders for a few more meetings.

    Is there any source for this?

    Jody might be staying at Oxford if the rumours about Atkins are true.

    Oxford Vs Workington June 26 2024

    Haha. I agree the track was rubbish (which is very unusual by the way), but to not say the best team won is hilarious. Cook saved you from getting an absolute spanking.

    Aces v Lions

    Agreed that live speedway will always be better and I'm one who wouldn't miss a meeting due to the TV cameras being there, but do understand why some people would give it a miss. Money is tight for many in this country and if they want to miss a match and save some money, they are always going to pick a meeting that's on TV - that way they won't miss anything. It's a natural philosophy I think. Plus, surely the TV money is there to negate this impact anyway. It's only really a concern if the crowds don't come back for the next meeting after the cameras have gone.
  24. BackInTheDHSS

    Aces v Lions

    Nope. Oxford got bigger crowds in the Championship than Poole last season. And probably on a par with them this season, despite the fact they are competing in three leagues. Crowds are so good we also don't have to 'worry' about which nights we race on.
