  1. Whilst we are worried about the number of deaths that might occur in our country, yesterday was Tomb-sweeping Day in China, followed by hanging ceremonies throughout the country My bet is that China hung 10 times more people yesterday than will die in NZ from Cobid 19 over the next 5 years Mikie

    I'm pretty sure Seymour is more closely related to the masterful square-gaiter Driver, David, than Tim

    Yes Nelli However it’s not the general Public that’’s got their knickers in a twist It appears from this thread to just be you, with Taka Umanga chipping in with a qualified comment I don’t think you are classified as “public”, you’re a stakeholder if anything Is there anything else going on in New Zealand we could focus our worries on? Anything? Mikie

    Nelli Usually agree with your comments but find this one strange if someone is allowed to be in-course I can’t see what the issue is, including perception Surely these whiners have better things to worry about than someone else having their photo taken? Mikie

    Agree Tasman Man Those who criticise don't know the facts, so they usually supplant there comments with "If that's the case.....' or "I'm told..." or "I understand that...." so that they can carry-on and put the boot in as you so eloquently put it If they have factual evidence then go ahead and criticse Mikie

    The Box Seat-A Question??

    Would you stop being so logical The suggestion is exactly like the NZTR Racing Bureau Whilst not in any way denigrating the job that they do, they were an extra cost that was not offset at Club level by any reduction in salaries or the number of salaried positions As you say, canning the Show wouldn't reduce salaries so why give up any coverage that we get It's not as though mainstream TV is our greatest advocate is it Mikie

    Not so sure if it's a fractured pelvis Shad. That's close to a retirement injury Mikie

    Gruff No argument from me. In order for a Forum to survive it needs opinions, it needs facts, it needs stories, it needs posters that agree and disagree with each other, it needs all of these What it doesn't need is a tasteless comment added after congratulating Tim on a winning drive Nina is right, it is akin to online bullying given the target is young and probably impressionable For 'JJ' to say Nina has taken his comment out of context is pathetic and childish. The comment stands alone, it can't be taken out of context My opinion, once I view the race that the thread originated upon, may well be that the drive on Luella was poor. If I think it was then I might offer my opinion as to that. "JJ" too is allowed his opinion. He can even have an opinion that a Driver might not possess the ability to be a top Driver. He is certainly allowed to state that too The drive isn't the problem. His opinion isn't the problem. It is the vile jab the was added that is the crux of the matter Mikie
