00:00 - 00:03It's all looking a bit grim for 2020, Sir...
00:04 - 00:05More tracks are closing...
00:05 - 00:07Clubs are proposing regionalisation
00:08 - 00:12There's talk of one big league again.
00:12 - 00:15Cradley are track-sharing near Berlin
00:17 - 00:19I thought we had a new TV deal?
00:19 - 00:21What about the crowd levels?
00:24 - 00:26I'm afraid...
00:27 - 00:28they are...
00:31 - 00:33No-one's coming to watch anymore
00:34 - 00:36Even Poole want to go Second Division
00:53 - 00:58Right. National League promoters get out.
01:13 - 01:15How many clubs do you expect me to save?
01:15 - 01:17Are you the only promoters left?
01:18 - 01:23How many riders out there are doubling up?
01:25 - 01:28Denise in the office said we'd be fine.
01:29 - 01:31Just lower the points limit, she said
01:31 - 01:34Whatever happened to Oxford, Exeter...
01:34 - 01:37Halifax, Reading, Coventry...
01:37 - 01:40Where have the decent clubs gone?
01:40 - 01:42Sir, the stadiums are all being demolished.
01:42 - 01:46You said there was going to be a new 'Abbey'
01:46 - 01:48There have been delays, sir.
01:48 - 01:52Rubbish. Where's Rye House gone?
01:53 - 01:54Even Stoke is finished.
01:56 - 01:57How can we go on with three leagues?
01:57 - 02:00We told the TV company...
02:00 - 02:03...we said we had more tracks.
02:04 - 02:08God damn guest riders...
02:08 - 02:13...riders having three different teams.
02:14 - 02:16We used to be the second most popular sport in the country.
02:17 - 02:21Now, they're all going to Poland and Sweden...
02:27 - 02:29... and we're still paying their air fares.
02:30 - 02:34We can barely charge a tenner admission.
02:34 - 02:36It's a joke.
02:41 - 02:42If any of you...
02:43 - 02:47...suggest one big league again...
02:48 - 02:53you can all drop into the Development Leagues
02:54 - 02:56See how you like running second halves
02:56 - 02:59with no TV money.
03:00 - 03:02And we're shutting the Rugby office.
03:04 - 03:07Forget it, Denise. It wasn't worth the aggro.
03:14 - 03:16The points limit has got to come down again.
03:19 - 03:23One rider per team over 6.00.
03:25 - 03:26National League kids at reserve again.
03:31 - 03:33Six teams per league.
03:40 - 03:46There'll have to be some drastic changes.
03:46 - 03:49We've got to give it another go.
03:53 - 03:56We'll try green helmet colours.
