    Wouldn’t surprise me unfortunately

    Speedcafe really haven’t given Supercars a pass on this as I thought they would. Just assumed they’d toe the party line as to keep them on side.
    Sutherland Shires #1 Escort? is that like being the 4th best prostitute in Kazahkstan?

      Speedcafe is also smart enough to see where the fan sentiment is lying.

        Also they flagged it as an "Opinion Piece".
        Besides it's written by Crusher, I'm surprised he hasn't called them all a bunch of stupid cunts. I'd have loved to be a fly on the wall when he found out the news and while he wrote up the piece, it'd be hilarious.

          Can't remember if it's been flagged or not, but apparently Sandown has a mid-March date set aside in case the F1 doesn't go ahead....

            Can non residents sign the petition too, mate? And if so, where would I find it, please?

                      The sad reality behind that "management" is that if you're genuinely that dumbfounded (and clueless) as to his popularity and the desire of what the fans want until you sack him, you're not going to succeed regardless, whether you bring him back or not. They are too far out of touch.

                      And even Crompo in the firing line.

                      Yeah, let's sack Ray Warren from the NRL while we're at it. Because the voice of a sport means jack all. Who comes up with these moronic ideas?

                        That the decision to drop him in the first place was made says everything about how out of touch management is.

                        Be great to see him return but I wouldn’t blame him if he told them to get fucked. Seems the Warbster has it in for him.

                          too true, the fact they wanted to dumb down the telecast shows how little they understand about people who watch, buy products advertised, spend there money to go to events, participate and support motor racing.
                          if it needed to be dumbed down we could of just watched AFL.

                            Listening to Ted Kravitz on F1 sunday night when he chimed in with a bumbling low tech explanation about how KERS works made me shudder, Larko nails the tech stuff perfectly.

                              Couldnt agree more. And whats even better is that he nails it, while making it understandable for non petrol heads. That takes skill

                                I remember being at QR the year Tim Slade ran second to Craig Lowndes all race. Was sitting next to group of Tim Slade fans who were cheering him on all race, but then freaking out losing their minds when he came in for a pitstop, "Oh no! Why is he coming in! He was doing so well, what went wrong!" Two pitstops for everyone that race, the bulk of the field pitted first, yet these guys couldn't wrap their heads around why their driver was pitting and that doing so wasn't a disaster...
