    NZTR board candidates

    Dore has been a massive part of the problem for mine. The ridiculous allocation of bonus funds, canning pick six, introducing place six, Triple Trio FFS??? Disaster.

    Take your pick from these three for NZTR

    De Lore best candidate of these three by light years. Obviously.

    What gambling experience? Putting on a disguise to try back Martina Hingis at a false price with the company that employed him?

    Glenda Hughes departing e-mail...

    History will paint a different picture. This woman has played a bigger role than anyone else in destroying the industry she was brought in to save. Had no clue when she was hired, and seemingly even less clue five years later as she is going out. Fuck off and good riddance.

    Guerin's on the payroll. Can't exactly come out and say it's a piece of shit.

    TAB TIME PLEASE

    One of the top ten dumbest things about the new website is it has no clock. Ridiculous when EVERY event they offer has a start time. More evidence that the people who built this thing have absolutely no clue what they are doing. Real basic stuff. Will be costing them shit-tons.

    TAB website down for maintenance

    Yep. I mean, half the time I get an error message when I try to pull up my pending bets. A seriously basic function. And mate keep an eye out for when they release their next batch of results, I'm tipping they will be disastrous. On all fronts.

    He and Glenda should have to hand over their passports until Internal Affairs has done a thorough audit of exactly where all the money they allegedly spent on this piece of shit masquerading as a betting website went.
  11. Dead-heat rules apply. Industry standard. Can happen in any market/sport where there can be a dead-heat.

    Their settling process is appalling. Costs them millions I reckon.
  15. Logged into the TAB website this morning and was greeted with the following notice: Sorry for the inconvenience but we are currently running some scheduled system maintenance .We will do our very best to complete this work and have you back in the game by 8:00am Thanks, The TAB Team To be fair these happen at every website but given the amount of $ these clowns spent on this new platform you would expect it to be purring like a Rolls-Royce, making you coffee and asking how you would like your eggs. I still would love to see a breakdown of where/how the TAB spent this $40-50 million. i.e. which firms were paid and for exactly which services. Maybe one of the hundreds of the Petone leeches who clog up Racecafe's bandwidth could provide this information. Because, as someone who has worked in the industry for more than 20 years, I find it hard to believe the costs of a new platform could be anywhere near the figures being bandied around, let alone this one which is basically a piece of shit. There is plenty of evidence to suggest far from the rosy forecast of turnover and income increase Allen predicted would happen, that in fact both are down in both racing and sports, I suspect drastically in the latter. When they first launched the new platform., they did so with massive limits and very competitive percentages. Both have now been cut back to such crippling levels that far from being competitive, the TAB's offering is actually embarrassing. They have cut back percentages to obscene levels. Yesterday I saw some corner markets on football matches where the TAB was offering 1.80 and 1.83 for two way options. Before the new platform those prices would have been 1.87/1.87 at worst, and once it was launched 1.90/1.90. Now these have been cut back so dramatically it's basically hardly worth offering. Have the NZRB released any new figures regarding turnover/hold since the new platform was launched? If so what is the over/under of how long Allen will last? This new platform, like RFL, was his baby, and thus far his tenure has made Bonking Bayliss look like a superstar. At least he got something for the $$$ he wasted, and didn't borrow a shit ton of money to build the worst website on the planet.
