Your facts don't alter my argument.

Yes! I have been shown to be wrong (as have you) and I have backed down when that is the case.

My point is that retirement funds have to be put into secure investments.

Dorna is obviously a secure investment.

In post #1279 it was a "massive windfall" investment, and ten minutes later it's only 'steady'??...I think the Canucks may have messed up, by the time I go to bed they'll have lost their arses.

Were you referring to my post above about steady, long-term growth?

Because, that's exactly what I was saying.

On a completely unrelated topic, why isn't there a standardized set of emoticons for all forums. I'm having a hell of a time with the different labels here. :dontknow: (see what I mean?)

Yes. My argument is simple.

You don't risk retirement funds, rather you shouldn't.

I concede however, in this present climate of economic craziness, retirement funds have been blown on dodgey investments. Dee's point does still stand, it is a worthy consideration that Dorna will Do their Dough. (more alliteration)

But it's illegal to leave the track and rejoin while taking a position.

Certain riders get punished for breaking the rules, others do not.

The Laguna Seca incident brought audiences and excited fans back to the GP so went unpunished. Those who sell excitement and tickets are rewarded no matter.

The Tino-Marquez fight will be big.

The reason most of the races are in Iberia is historic, there's lots of race series that are similar, most of them are beginning to expand their reach and go global for the bigger market but its the economy that's pushed this, while things were golden everyone was resting on their laurels. Problem is if they make short term changes that short change them in the long term, moving races to be more global helps now and is a good long term strategy. condensing race series works now but when the booms come back it'll be hard to extricate them, plus it'll cause a drop in overall attendance now because the people that go to both now cant double up to go to one twice (unless the double gate prices which will put the casual visitor off).

Ever thought this forum might be a lot less random if any of us actually read the contents of each others posts?

You don't have to be stupid to be wrong, and you don't have to be wrong to be stupid.
