    Winter Super Comp starting soon

    There's been several comments on here about idiots, scumbags, .... (plural). Let's be very clear there is really only one idiot/scumbag at the heart of all of this nonsense. It started a few years back when I ran a knockout comp and he was beaten by Cabbage in the semi finals. Rather than congratulate Cabbage he came out with this vitriol about how she had copied Aiden Rodley's selections (or was it Stu Laing's?). Cabbage was so hurt by this she hasn't entered the comps since. Note, this was a competition that I ran with my own time and money and he didn't have to pay any entry fee. He was a member of the Hurricanes team at the time but we didn't really appreciate that sort of behaviour and he left our team. Since then he has clearly harboured a lot of ill will against the Hurricanes. This manifested itself when Hesi ran the Top Cat comp over the summer (assisted by TC). He had been eliminated from the competition but he questioned Hesi's clarification of the shootout rules, claiming that Hesi had changed the rules and thereby undermined the competition. Note, this was a competition Hesi was running with his own time and some of his own money and nobody paid any entry fee. Nobody else objected to this change - not even the people who had co-sponsored the comp. This crusade got quite nasty to the point where he was openly calling into question TC's integrity/ethics when all he was doing was giving up his time to help run a comp. and more recently he has rejoined Peter's comps - again he doesn't pay an entry fee but again he does all he can to undermine this comp - often questioning Peter's choice of races, making it quite clear that he doesn't care about Oz racing (so why enter a comp that has 5 Oz races every week?), and last week posting a set of picks where 95% of them were non runners (just to make some ridiculous point in response to what happened to him the week before). He entered the Winter Comp and several of us told Peter we didn't want to enter. We told Peter to go ahead without us - we didn't put any ultimatums to him about not entering unless we could pick our own team or unless certain individuals didn't play. Peter's comps are bigger than any individuals but it is my choice who I want to associate myself with. There are a bunch of us who love the comps - we put up our own time and money to run some of these. We don't need to take this type of abuse/behaviour and some of us have pushed back. This is not unreasonable.

    If you listen to anyone on Trackside guessing/tipping you're brain dead, and God help your wallet. What you want from them is information not tips, just tit bits, e.g., if a horse is sweating up badly, reluctant to load, being reshod, been in the barriers a long time, has a gear change, .....or conversely remarkably relaxed.... that's information, you can use that to your advantage so that's what you should demand. As for Trackside tipsters putting thought into their selections, you're kidding, they're oxymorons with legs, and they may as well be putting thought into what the colour of the number 8 smells like.

    I'm going to cancel this comp. After the exchanges that have gone on in this forum in the past 24 hours and numerous private emails from people withdrawing, some of whom had earlier stated they will be in, I just can't be bothered with the BS. I'm sorry for those keen to participate. Thanks for offering. It's going to be a quiet winter. These things are mean't to be fun, this crap isn't.

    BIG TIPS FOR ADDINGTON

    Ok I am going to answer for Brodie here as that post will tick every known repetitive response from him. "Would not waste my time on a premier meeting. Pointless betting with Purdon dominating every race and the bloody bookies killing every dividend. restrictions, restrictions blah blah blah Muhahaha" But seriously I thought it was a good betting night too and made a few bucks as well.

    The standards in this area have dropped significantly and in many cases been dropped completely. The TAB don't see it as a priority and thinks cost cutting should start with (or near) information punters get. Thats about the last place cost cutting should reach in my opinion. Unfortunately not many people share that opinion.

    I was having a beer after golf with a guy who was a guest. I asked him how his home club was going and he went on to explain all the work going on around his Club, new holes, new extensions to the clubhouse, new restaurant, new practice facilities etc etc. Very surprised I said " Fxxk me! Where's the money coming from for all this?". Without a pause he answered, " From our pokies". So asked him about the social impact of this ripping $ out of the local community from those who can least afford it and he just said, " Yeah, it is a problem". Need I say more? Pokies rip the shit out of the lower socio-economic communities and should be confined to Las Vegas, Alice Springs and other Deserted destinations - out of reach of such desperate communities.

    Gee Gary. That's a lot of variables for the making of a group 1 dog. The group dogs are the ones that overcome adversity.

    Oh God no ! Please someone tell me it isn't so. What a foul posting from this individual that a moment ago I had the misfortune to see on the Results Thread. Clear evidence of the gutter calibre of the individual. I'm sure there'll be a lot of people now reconsidering whether they want to take part in the Winter comp, because this individual is there. Many of us have standards as to whom we are prepared to associate with. This individual falls well short of those standards. Go for a hike Teddy. A long one. 3 years would be nice. In the jungles of Nicaragua. People there have less patience than we do.

    That greyhound thats barks costs between 5-6k to go from pup to race dog. It's not a quick flutter. As for the pokies I watched one day while working in a bar one chap win 3 jackpots during the day. At the end of closing he was getting more cash out on eftpos.

    Thanks Howie. Always enjoy playing the Blues and you've had the wood on us the last few times, but today it was our turn for the breaks to go our way. Well done Canes - nice way to cap a good season. The statisticians are going back through the record books to see if any team has won 11 straight to take out the title. Mike & VS - outstanding comebacks today. VS - three from three in the play-offs - that's clutch!! Hesi & TC nice wins once again. I've enjoyed playing with you guys and look forward to no doubt locking horns with a few of you in the Winter Comp - suspect we won't be able to draft this same team. Peter - thanks - outstanding as always!!

    Well done John, Hesi, TC, Mike & Von on your comprehensive win today .... it doesn't come more comprehensive than 5-0 so an absolute drubbing for us guys. I can't recall the Blues having ever gone down 0-5 in PJ Super Comp history, maybe once possibly ...regrettably we picked the worst possible day to come up with not so much a de-planeing (sorry United Airlines, you're such an easy target) but more a de-winning ! We held our own on the NZ side of the operation, but to be honest Randwick had us completely flummoxed ! Absolutely worthy champions and Grand Final winners the Mighty Hurricanes. A top team effort for sure right through the comp. Other teams had individual heroes, but not through the five players. It's all about team and the Hurricanes encapsulated that perfectly. Not all sad for the Mighty Blues ...2nd of 10 is a very worthy achievement, we've had a ton of fun, and my team-mates Geoff, Gordy, Pete and Brian have been superb. Looking forward to hooking up with you guys again in the Spring. Mega-thanks to PJ for another super season of fun and enjoyment, to John as PJ's invaluable backup, and to all those many participants in the various teams who played with spirit and in the spirit, very well done, and thanks. Onwards and upwards. Enjoy the rest of your Easter everyone.

    Congratulations Hurricanes, you came strong when it counted and have been the form team throughout. To my Blues teammates, well done boys to get us to the Grand Final after my not too flash form. Thanks again PJ for running a great Competition.

    They're a disease, they exploit vulnerable people, and wherever you find pokies you find rorts. We're better than that aren't we ?

    I first met Murray in Woodville in the 1970's when he was training at Woodville racecourse,the days of Eric Ropiha with whom Murray had early contact as to racehorse training. I have been a supporter of him and his family as he is a genuine guy who doesn't deal in fantasy. but basics regarding the thoroughbred world.Time has proven his philosophies and he deserves all the accolades and success of an Illustrious career.
