    Still disagree, and it is not just the drugs driving my position. What I unequivocally know is that I think significantly less of those that refuse to self report. On track concessions are fine and just but at that point the victimized driver's race has been dramatically affected while you skate away with nothing to show for your offense than on track positioning.

    I also very, very strongly believe that the Chief Steward explaining in detail how they refuse to self report because somehow an on track concession is just as good a penalty as a post race points adjustment and probationary period while simultaneously indicating it is not worth the jeopardy of additional penalties stemming from self reporting is about a strong a discouragement as can be said.

    Also, I am not so naive as to think that everyone self reports but I do expect the leaders to do so. I have not been here long in the grand scheme of SNAIL but I have been here long enough to experience a place at each swing of the podium. The most unpleasant experiences, wherein I was seriously contemplating dropping out of Sinday nights, were in a division where everyone was strongly discouraged from filing reports.

    If I read this right I have qualified for the RoC. Unfortunately I am not able to race this week and will miss it so please pass my spot on to someone else.

    I knew this would be the case, but you earned it and deserved to be recognized as such! Get well soon.

    Sunday races are "locked" in. I cannot say for certain I can make it, however, chances are very good that I can, barring any unforseen issues. The past few Saturdays have been "open".

    On my phone so I can't check for sure, but there should be an option to earn $hells when less than all six replays are uploaded. I can't give any $hells that aren't mine, but everyone can give their own $hells by clicking the 'spend $hells' link in my sig. :)

    Just noticed the date is Saturday and the ROC is normally held on a Friday night. @CoachMK21 can you confirm which day is correct?

    You've apparently missed the point. Once again. I can't argue that you may have experienced someone trying to discourage IR filing. It wasn't me, and it better not have been any of the stewards. I don't have any problems accepting points reduction or probation from any penalty, self reported or otherwise. Again, that's where you seem to be missing the point of why, exactly, I won't self report. If others are willing to assume the risks I outlined earlier, that's their choice. If anyone, or group of someones, are encouraging others not to file IRs, self report or not, they are doing the entire league a disservice.

    You seem to be inferring things I am not implying. That's on you. What's on me is the decision not to self report and fully expect others to file against me should they feel my actions warrant it. I have also stated very specific reasons why I've made that decision. If you choose to see that as discouraging others, that is also on you.

    I'm done with this discussion here. If you wish to continue it, feel free to PM me.

    Aside from all that, I hope your surgery was successful and your recovery smooth.

    When I thought it was on Saturday I was happy..... However, this Friday night I am taking my wonderful wife to the Theatre for the opening night of the drama season. I wouldn't pass the theatre for the ROC - not safe....... so, please draw a line through my name.

    Oh! I thought you had filmed your wife's reaction to you telling her you couldn't go to the theatre because you were racing in the ROC

    I'll be there. I feel that Wardenclyffe should have been able to be there but, I understand the circumstances. That being said, I'll try my best to do him justice and represent D5 the best way that I can.

    Just to clarify, you're the 8th alternate and do not directly replace Wardenclyffe. But it's likely you'll make it in via others not being able to make it.


    I believe we're still waiting.
