From MPORA -ACU Chairman Brian Higgins commented, ” Firstly, I would like to put on record the efforts of Steve Dixon over the past few years in bringing a competitive team together and all the behind the scenes work he has conducted. Unfortunately, Steve could not meet the criteria set by the ACU Motocross Committee with regards to finances with overseas riders, namely Dean Wilson in 2011. Whilst we wish to be as competitive as possible to field a podium place team, this cannot be at any cost and with potentially five or six leading riders who can deliver this aim, we have to work within budgets. I can confirm that each rider will have full financial support from the ACU in September”.
Well, I would say this is a surprise, but in all honesty, it isn’t. Standard redcoat behavior. They have had a stick up their ass ever since we dominated them in the Revolution and now they decide to throw a bitch fit and say that Dean can’t ride for them because it would be too expensive. I could believe that, but then they actually have the gall to say that they want to deliver a podium team. Here’s a list of UK riders who have podium potential at the MXdN, minus Deano: Tommy Searle. That’s it. Don’t bullshit a bullshitter, Britain. If you really cared, you would fire ten guys to bring Dean over because he is your only hope. I mean, your tea budget alone is probably enough to get the kid to the race and back. But no, he races in America, and you guys want dudes who race on home soil. Can’t argue with the strategy, it’s a proven winner (if you’re American). It looks like the only way Deano is racing MXdN is if some random hero comes in and sponsors him to go there in a way his entire country cannot ($100 says it’s an American).
Props to this Dixon guy for telling the ACU to go fuck themselves when they would not bring Dean over.
A police sketch of the suspect
From ThisIsGloucestershire – POLICE reckon they may have only uncovered the tip of the iceberg of crooked car and motorbike salesman Michael Fear’s crime. Fear, 51, from Aylburton, was slapped with a suspended prison sentence at Swindon Crown Court on Wednesday for seven counts of fraud and theft. He sold cars and motocross bikes on eBay and in trade magazines for thousands of pounds, advertising them as being in a far better state than they really were. The seven incidents he was charged with all occurred in 2008 and it took police and Trading Standards three years to build the case against him. Fear then changed his plea to guilty at the last minute.
It took three years to “build a case” against this guy. At first, I was going to dump on the cops and say they suck at their job if it took three years to gather evidence against some asshole who sells 1996 KX 250s as James Stewart’s 2013 race bike, as I am sure many of you expected. But then I saw this guy’s name: Michael Fear. Ok, now I am totally on the cops’ level – this guy has a number of bodies – we’ll set the over-under at 4 (I’ll be taking the over) – in a freezer in his basement that he continuously has sex with in rough and unattractive fashion. I mean, this story has serial killer written all over it, we just are not getting all the pieces to the puzzle.
On an unrelated note, what is the case against this guy other than the whole necrophilia thing? If people are dumb enough to buy the shit that he is slinging and actually believe it is new, so be it. There is no law against taking advantage of other people’s stupidity. Yeah, you can be upset when you show up to the dude’s place and the bike is held together by duct tape and good wishes, but who is making you buy that shit? Just walk away and tell authorities about the strange affinity he had with your hair or your toe nails or whatever. Not his fault if you are too much of a bitch to tell the guy to “Fuck off” with his James Stewart replica piece of shit.
