Thought I'd post for the first time by asking the banding community what their opinions were regarding Leyland's relegation from The Open. Any thoughts anybody?
NAS said:One thing that has dissapointed me recently is that I helped a Yorkshire Band out on a long distance job and they said they were "over the moon" that Leyland were relegated (before the official verdict). I really hope that all banding isnt like this... if it is im in it for the wrong reasons... :?

Sorry Aidan, but I heard Besses at the Open and in concert last week, and you're just not in the same league at the moment. If you think you are then you can win the Grand Shield and get back into the Open next year, and prove me wrong. Sorry.
