  1. And some aren’t - work hard and are not on inflated salaries.
  2. how about those who have moved from private sector to public for first time in life. Not the land of milk and honey. Poor salary in comparison. Maybe in times gone by but not in recent years
  3. Sadly accurate portrayal and we either have to stop it or just get used to it or try to reduce the deaths in some way. I just worry that we are getting desensitised to this like we are to so many other horrific events going on at moment. When does it stop being a sport? I know the competitors make there own choices just think would be more comfortable with it if it were run by people who understood it rather than the government run over commercialised event it has become. Take it back 20 or 30 years when TT was more true to its roots. Gov have created a monster which will destroy itself
  4. yes of course they do but not in the same numbers and maybe not sponsored by the Gov taking selfies of themselves in shades with celebrities and prob no idea of what is happening out on track
  5. I just hate that whatever the circumstances pretty sure they never envisaged this and certainly didn’t deserve to end their days this way. What worries me is that blame is being shifted on them to deflect from five additional deaths and the cold hard fact that this is an outdated and over commercialised event to which we are all becoming desensitised to cos the show must go on.
  6. The fact is this was a horrific incident - what is concerning I feel from recent posts is that they were stupid if they allegedly switched tags and being implied it was their fault. Almost trying to justify it and the usual “nothing to see here”
  7. Non believer is correct a different and sensible approach is needed
  8. I am well aware of them and you really can’t compare to Rossi. Different ball game and circumstances- maybe just all the deaths aren’t worth it for “entertainment “ which is what it is. Maybe it’s had its day and time to change and adapt. Hate how all those “that have passed” will be forgotten next year. Maybe hang something on Fairy Bridge - maybe time to know when something has run it’s course before something apprendible comes which is coming when most of spectators crammed into one place
  9. Work for one of the largest employees on IOM. DFE Hmm?
  10. Not that many of them? How many ?
  11. Forgive me if I am wrong but majority of big fish here you don’t here much about for rest of year ? Maybe the adulation here too much to refuse.? Where are the big names these days? Or even the younger new blood to keep the interest going? What sport have 50 year old blokes highlighting except where no competition?

  13. I pretty sure this not the case. Name me all the recent deaths except maybe the more high profile that have been supported going forward. I suspect mostly forgotten. I used to be a huge fan and involved but just think as a lot of things mainly it has had its day in current form and needs evaluating Not helped by MHKs stuffing selves at corporate tent - forgetting the TT for it’s true meaning and focusing on commercial aspect whatever the cost.
  14. Yes untimely deaths but not a hobby
