    I am aware of all the web info and how to use it but the average Joe public doesn't , as for the newspaper coverage , Australia still see the value in it !!! .....................Clearly everyone else is happy I will shut up

    We have all seen the complete lack of on course attendance and can understand why this is happening but how about betting turnover ? I believe the TAB are alienating the betting public from the game by making it difficult to understand form , sure if your prepared to look for it its there BUT its far more difficult now than it was 6 - 7 years ago. Trial form seems to be very slow to come through but by far the biggest problem is the newspaper form or lack of it. What we are reduced to now is a list of jockeys , draws and numbers representing past performance. No more Friday Flash , Informant etc and just a general lack of information in written form. Couple this up with handicapping systems for both codes that nobody can understand and its a recipe for disaster for punters. Furthermore ALL information that is available is produced by the TAB or direct and indirect employees of the TAB.............. we are helping you pick winners ..........Yeah Right !! Trackside coverage is exceptionally good but most of those on screen that offer betting advise have a shocking success rate. Even the First Call is a disgrace from a results point of view. I wrote all the suggested bets down for a period of weeks and spent all day drawing a line through the suggested bets, and at the end of the day the piece of paper looked like a map of the London underground.. Day after day we have " Suggested Quaddie , Pick 6 , 4 picks a race 99% of which amount to nothing yet we are talking $36 , $58, $78 . $108 etc a pop hardly a positive promotion yet " they ' bob up day after day totally unaccountable for their incompetence................... YES INCOMPETENCE Saturday morning we have the TAB bookie giving us his report on most races................ as if he is going to help you.............. YEAH RIGHT We need independent sources of information like the old Radio Pacific so we can shove it right up the TAB !! At the moment all you see and hear is generated by someone directly or indirectly working for the TAB , I'd love to see the job descriptions " To assist punters pick winners through sound and informed information " TUI AWARD Dont get me stsrted on the manipulation of odds to mislead punters.
