    TT 2022 ??

    Poor trolling by another idiot who rather than debate the issues just wants to bully and try to discredit posters who express views they don’t like. Nothing said anywhere is a conspiracy.

    Oh it seems Mr Angry has woken up again. That’s an actual article written by an actual journalist with actual quotes attributed to Paul Phillips.

    Or they simply don’t think they have anything to apologize for.

    TT 2022 ??

    Some cracking quotes from Paul Phillips here. He claims that the fans won’t let them make the course safer. Which is of course bullshit https://www.thedrive.com/accelerator/deaths-are-a-tradition-at-the-isle-of-man-tt-they-shouldnt-be “Phillips admitted that the TT organizers face a major pushback against attempts to improve safety and avoid deaths. “Of course, there’ll always be some resistance, especially around the safety and risk management stuff. You see people saying, ‘They don’t need to do any of that stuff because the riders know the risks.’" That culture that exists around our sport isn’t something I can sign up to," however, Phillips said. "There are avoidable risks and risks that can be managed out, and that doesn’t change the essence of what TT is and the inherent risk that is part of the attraction. What it does do, though, is mean we are a sustainable and responsible organization." Winning a race known for its death toll doesn't have a higher value for having cost other peoples' lives. The improved measures this year show that organizers understand the problem but with accidents still proving lethal, there has to be more that can be done, including ultimately changing the course. A safety management system is a good start but it clearly isn't stopping the deaths.”

    It’s being used to stop any form of debate. Then you get the actual moderators on a forum making accusations of posters being conspiracy theorists to attempt to directly discredit and bully posters who are prepared to question things. There is no doubt that this forum has been lent on and is actively attempting to tow the government line despite some truly horrific events happening which many people are fully aware of. You presume part of this is the fact that some off island news agencies have clearly read posts on this forum for information as they haven’t been able to get any from anywhere else.

    Funny how they happen for a few hours immediately after a TT death is announced and after you’ve been criticized for locking TT threads to stifle debate 😂😂

    You’re hilarious and it’s clear you have obviously been lent on the way you are now trying to bully and discredit an alternative view expressed by a poster. Are we going to have some random forum closures for technical reasons again today that just happen to coincide with posters seeking to question some of this mess? 😂
  8. Or his finger on no pulse in this instance.

    I don’t have to back that up do I as it’s an opinion and I said ‘you can guess’ not ‘they have’. I’d better stop there though as I’d hate to cause another ‘technical glitch’ where the forum isn’t viewable for another few hours or so.

    The threats will have been made directly to media companies. There was even a direct call out to accredited media firms made after the first incidence. While the rules above say they may invite media firms to stop reporting you can guess that it will have been expressed as much more than an invitation to stop.

    Invite … not force to compel. Its a bit like the whole sub judice argument around Ranson. Stop all debate by threatening people.

    Government and the organizers clearly.

    I don’t agree. A big section of BBC news this morning on the deaths. It doesn’t really matter what people here think it’s what will be reported in the off island press that matters. Which is why they’re trying to pretty much silence everything so that they have limited information to report.

    Temperatures are high. Someone has to say something. Two sidecar teams taken out at exactly the same spot within a few days of each other. You can even feel social media turning. They can’t front this out as usual.
