    An admission

    I take on board the comments we sometimes read about all the negative shit that appears on the greyhound related media sites and try to concentrate on the positive, which is why I don't have anything to post recently. However so called negative comment is needed, it is how we point out deficiencies and unfairness within the system. It often is the first step to positive change. The secret appears to be to keeping within the bounds of decency or at least reason. Is the recent flip flop from our indecisive board an admission that the time has come for the Association to admit that we have devalued our sport to the point it is now import dependent? The lack of consultation before the import fee was raised then just as quickly reversed does not give anyone confidence that the board actually know what they are doing we were told we would be advised of the reasons for this flip flop shortly. Surely the treaty doesn't have to be rewritten before they make this statement. This appears to be kids stuff. Most analysts agree that high staff turnover with an organization is a sign of bad management, I am not sure what they call it when it is top to bottom turnover, maybe high class mismanagement

    Calling the self professed experts

    As you predicted CC very good race and very good horse won it. Odds were tiny but he won like he deserved it. Have to put the lot on DDDance for a place in the Tzarsino now.

    It's just my view of social media LD , give someone an excuse to be offended and they will not only oblige but expect the whole world to follow suit. I do have a problem with name and shame in general though as it is generally done regardless of whether the person or people are guilty as fact . More generally it starts before a fair trial has been afforded the so called guilty party. I am sure you will be able think of instances where this has happened and the accused has been eventually proved innocent. It's too late then, as a doctor friend once told me "remember shit sticks to the blanket". This is not a comment on current issues just a personal belief of mine. Mind you I will put my hand up as being the one that posted about the RIU senior who bungled his way through an elicit unnfortunate rendezvous before it was investigated. That is if it ever was!
