It boils down to the current wagering model is unsustainable. You have got bookies working feverishly with much better resources to beat the punter paying millions outside of New Zealand to assist. Unless one is privy to excellent inside info there is just no way long term one can beat the bookies.
Hong Kong are a bit smarter they realize its a waste lining the pockets of bookies.
Womby - until the tbreds can race over all distances in all conditions the same applies from the gypsies. You must be quite young I think. A true follower does not expect to win every time he has a bet - we all like to but alas no show. All the things you say are to be taken into account when you have a punt. Afterall we are betting on animals and performance is never by the operating manual!!
Many, many, many, years ago there was a saying - The customer is also right!
Today it is just - Like it or lump it!
Time they learnt what an "On/Off Switch" is and then researched into how often their customers use it.
Lies , damn lies and then theres statistics as Mark Twain said .
I suppose if I was elderly and sick and not expected to see out the year then step out in front of a bus and get flattened it goes on the road toll for the month I get flattened then 6 months later I am not on the death toll for that month for flu maybe . It's the way it can be spun I suppose . Ive no idea one way or another but clearly if fit in the main it's not too much of a worry , Spurs game off this morning because load opposition players got it and didn't know , only checked because Spurs offered to pay no health symptoms at all , chairman is bemoaning the late postponement, I've read no panic at all re their health let alone if they might die but about the fixture backlog it's panic time . Clearly these are young fit athletes though so strong immune systems no doubt .
How reliable is the data . Is every infection recorded and how is cause of death decided in each and every country ?
The best advice I received in late January was surviving the virus will be the easy bit.
I posted this early in this thread. You may have missed it. Like Berri's post it is based on official Government figures.
One of the interesting things that has been noticed, in Europe, is a number of countries had below average deaths , from all causes, late last year and early this year. If you look at the England Wales figures shown in the link, they fall into this category. What analysts found was that those countries have been affected by Covid much more heavily (from a death number point of view). Those countries that had normal deaths figures for that period were not affected so much. This is illustrated well when you compare Scandinavian countries.
