  1. https://www.attheraces.com/news/2020/April/02/jumps-racing-in-britain-to-remain-suspended-until-july
  2. I’d happily be on 80% of my salary to sit at home, I am busier than ever and it doesn’t look like slowing down anytime soon. My main concern is at the end of this I will have adopted a 10 cups of strong coffee a day habit, followed by a couple of beers and a some wine or Gin, to get me to sleep...... Coming in here and checking out the news sites on my ‘screen breaks’ is probably not the best idea either.....
  3. Because this is the sport thread, head over to the political thread to widen it out.
  4. You can’t, but you would expect them not to be living at the absolute maximum of that wage and have some ‘rainy day’ money.
  5. I guess there are so many variations of employment, so many differently worded contracts that no matter who was in government, they are never going to capture them all in the first round or two of measures.
  6. The upside to players being paid their full wage, is that they are then contributing to the National coffers via their tax and NI, so it’s a bit of a double edged sword. Even so if Levy is asking for a bailout for Tottenham as Collymore has intimated, then it’s hard to justify paying someone £150K per week.
  7. Just a reminder to keep this sport related, hop on the other thread to digress.....
  8. It’s an odd one, sometimes I think he is a grade A cock, then I read something else from him and he gets it spot on. He’s having a rant about millionaires trying to get bailouts for their football clubs on Twitter. Personally, if a club is paying all it’s staff, then I have no issue in the players getting full whack, but if they are expecting low paid staff to manage on 80% salary, or their club get a tax payers bailout, I think the players could at least show some solidarity.
  9. Leeds players deferring their pay isn’t taking a cut. Do you know that “ordinary staff” aren’t getting paid in full?
  10. Someone texted into R5 earlier on suggesting a brilliant way to end the season, the radio presenters got all exited about and claimed a great idea........ until someone pointed out the obvious flaw in the idea. The idea was for the first 9 games of next season to count double - ie ending this season and starting the next.......
  11. Just watching the Amy Winehouse documentary on C5, a reminder of what might have been, what a tragic, terrible waste of an amazing talent. Amy would very near the top of my ‘wish I’d seen live’ list.
  12. Football, F1, rugby, all of it, I spend a lot of time listening to the radio, usually R5 and they do cover sport pretty well, understandably, they are now struggling to fill the schedules, so the sooner some sport comes back the better - even if it was behind closed doors it could be broadcast on TV and radio, it would at least give something to look forward to.
