    Betting or Collecting $1,000... Info from TAB.

    Is the gold card photo Id?

    TAB and virtual races

    You can see the attraction for the tab but I would have thought there’s enough crap all ready for people to bet on.

    Mark MacNamara A Big Loss

    Can you really get stuck into the management when he wants to be closer to home and family? Reminds me of the James Maloney situation when he left the Warriors, management coped the flack but at the end of the day there wasn’t a lot they could have done to keep him.

    latest gem from TAB

    Hard to see the Labour Party or Green Party supporting either of those proposals isn’t?

    Outsourcing TAB - Huge Mistake !

    It’s not all outsourced though is it? I thought all the main sports and nz stuff were still done here and it was the more random stuff they were out sourcing e.g Russian 3rd division football.

    Glenda Hughes departing e-mail...

    I know a bloke who’s been a small time owner his whole life and never voted for Winston but says he is next election because of what he’s doing so there maybe well be a bit of influence. Given Winston polls around the 5% threshold it a few votes could have a very big influence on the next election.

    Mrs Cubes gets grumpy with the TAB

    I don’t thinks it’s long enough, there’s plenty of people who only go to the races once or twice a year and don’t tend to visit tabs. Surely a year or even two years is a more reasonable time frame e.g bet on Wellington Cup day you have until the next Wellington Cup day to claim the ticket. Granted in most case we will be talking about smallish amounts but it’s still frustrating.

    They just spout the same line and send you a copy of the rules.

    More bull%$^% from the NZRB...

    It’s likely related to the new anti money laundering rules that have come into force. A couple of years ago I had to provide id to the bank even though I had been with them for years.
  10. Any idea why? From what I gather the rugby pools was fairly well supported particularly when the jackpot got up a bit.

    A stunning effort by the “stopper”

    Almost as silly as those of us who predict the sharkies to beat a depleted manly today,no?

    Your comparing apples with oranges in that scenario. Someone running for public office stating something on the public record during and election campaign or just after is completely different to a private citizen.

    Let me tell you about my TAB experience

    The machines also quite regularly seem to freeze on the sports options. I’m guessing it’s sometging to do with linking in with the new system.

    Let me tell you about my TAB experience

    Not supporting the idea of not being able to open in an account in a branch but I wouldnt have thought many people are not opening them in branches these days, the vast majority would be online. In fact having to go into a branch and verify your id was probably a major deterrent to getting accounts active.

    Brian Martin

    Completely agree with the above comments. On a Friday night in the pub his calls certainly added something to the event. Not knocking the other callers but he’s a class above.

    Capital Gains Tax

    It’s quite subjective valuing a business, I think as part of the report they were exploring the idea but the compliance costs compared to the revenue raised would probably make it barely worth while.

    What were the odds for the sixers on both sites?

    Boys get Paid

    Haha you say let’s not twist then do exactly that. You are right some will be racing people already but there are plenty who are not.

    Boys get Paid

    I think a lot of you people have rocks in your head. You have an industry struggling to maintain relevance and attract younger participants then when you are given exposure to 13000 of the next generation all you can do is moan about the deal they are trying to negotiate I would also note that they want the deal to pump money back into the industry and keep attracting new participation which is much needed Buying power normally gets you a better deal and I don’t see this as being any different

    Boys get Paid

    To join there punters club? Yes there was a $5 fee but that was run through the Auckland racing club I believe. I’m not sure who charged the fee but the admin for the syndicate would have been phenomenal for a syndicate of that size.

    Boys get Paid

    I haven’t read the article but I am guessing they want it to put back into the group and used for things related to the industry e.g Raceday functions and events etc rather than to make a profit.

    The point being it’s probably distributed on a Wednesday and then delivered to the outlets on a Thursday so if it’s not picked up on a Wednesday it’s going to be pretty hard to deliver it on Thursday. I actually gave you a solution which would be to subscribe online. You stated in this day and age that the delay is “simply not good enough” so perhaps you could enlighten us to your solution to the situation?

    Couriers generally don’t work public holidays so what would your suggestion be to get it there in a more timely manner? Perhaps the online version may solve the issue for you.
