The situation in the Premier League is very bad, and this competition has been avoided for years by the best motorcyclists in the world who are tired of driving on unprepared tracks and have paid extra to perform in the domestic league. In the latest edition of the Speedway Star, a completely different diagnosis of the problems for the British competition was given by Swindon Robins promoter, Terry Russell. If such a diagnosis had been made by a less well-known activist, his words, perhaps, could only be summed up in laughter, however, in this case, it is about one of the most influential Britons on the highway. His words show that the British motorway is worse than anyone could have imagined.
– I have a problem with the FIM, because although Armando Castagna nicely blocks the following thoughts of the Poles, he has no teeth at all as a regulator. So if the Poles decide they will play matches on Friday, they don’t care that the Grand Prix qualifiers take place on the same day. Players, in turn, are paid so well that they have to be called up by their clubs, even at the expense of the last place in the playoffs. FIFA does nothing about it, although in my opinion it should stand firm against Poland and help the players by making GP qualifications a mandatory part of every Grand Prix weekend – he reveals one of his ideas to curb Polish dominance
– The Poles flex their muscles and often tell players that if they don’t perform well in the league, they should come to practice on days when they have games scheduled in other leagues – adds Russell at Speedway Star.
This is not the end, as Russell accuses the Poles of breaching agreements regarding the Speedway slot system, which gave each league fixed days of playing matches, thus preventing conflicts of interest and fighting for players.
– Everything was agreed, and one day PZM came up with the idea that it would not allow players to appear in more than one foreign league. In this way, the Poles punished all the players. On the other hand, FIFA is helpless as it believes that leagues are not their responsibilities. I would like the FEI to be more strict about Poland, as the former head of BSPA admits.
Subsequently, there is a statement that changes in slag in favor of Poland are similar to climate change, which is slowly leading to catastrophe in the whole world. However, this is not the end, because it turned out that a great crime of the Poles was the alleged use of the epidemic to their advantage. According to the Briton, our activists took advantage of the precarious situation and “dominated” the Grand Prix cycle, organizing six out of eight championships in 2020, and in 2021 six out of 11 rounds. It doesn’t matter to him that without our country, the World Cup would never have taken place. It also turns out that our activists are much easier to gather crowds in the stands, because we don’t enjoy sports like a nation of Britons and neither cricket nor rugby are very popular here.
However, this is not the end, because Russell has another interesting idea to beat the noses of our activists.
In the end, we must all accept that we are in the pockets of the Poles. But I wonder what would have happened if Swindon had entered their competition. It will not be surprising, because the clubs of Daugavpils and Landshut are already competing in the Polish League. We can go there every Sunday and then host their teams in the UK. I wonder if the Poles would agree to such a deal – adds Russell, who in recent years has made Swindon Robbins a leading team in the Premier League and celebrated gold medals with him.
