I don't generally blow as badly as this and feel like Martin O'Neal the other week after getting battered by Chelsea!
How do you get over coming last? [xx(]

russ the only way is sideways now mate.
you have found your level and apart from the odd blip where you might get up to second ...from last, im afraid that you are just gonna have to get used to it .you are past your sell by date and maybe a turn to the darkside where blanking is commonplace lol.
hope this helps mate ,[:p][:p][:p]

It was once suggested at our club AGM, that as matches were almost always won by the same few few people, we might introduce some sort of handicapping system along the lines of that used in golf.

For example, if you fished off "scratch", nothing would be added to your weight. If you fished off 10, 10% of your weight would be added.

It was voted out by the committee. Who win 90% of the matches. I admit, it would make weighing in a calculator affair.

Has this ever been tried in fishing ?

Sounds a terrible idea, what's the point in spending years getting good at something just to have someone handicap you ?

Actually it sounds exactly like what we've been living like under labour for 13 years, the harder you work the more you're penalised, the less you work the more you have given to you.

How about the losers try working hard and putting in the effort to get good, just as the others had to.

Couple of pints down the local and a couple of pints of Starapramen when I got in sorted me head out plus I got a letter from Kent Police this morning telling me I've been let off driving the wrong way down a duel carridgeway in the snow so I'll take last place instead of the 300 quid fine and six points I could have got![:D]
