    The Diceman Cometh got a reaction from Stables in dean mckenzie   
    "largely inapplicable"...…….I disagree Leo.
    The report had plenty of accurate substance to it and what was needed was strong leadership to implement the recommended changes.
    I would have paid V'landys whatever he wanted to lead the team (there is no one in NZ capable IMO) to get things changed and sure, he would have steam rolled over some and ruffled plenty of egos along the way, but that is what is needed. Sort out the bloody mess we are well and truly ensconced in.
    Dean doesn't have the experience or the battle hardened persona to do the job, and that is not a criticism of the man himself.

    The Diceman Cometh got a reaction from Tauhei Notts in Innocent until proven guilty, but.....   
    A couple of points from reading the FBI release.
    1) Reference is made to the use of a "well respected industry expert" as part of their team in the long investigation...……….when you have someone who knows what to look for and how it all works, combined with FBI phone taps and rock solid evidence ,and the seemingly large number of participants involved, it was only a matter of time before the house of cards folded.
    2)  Compare this investigation to others closer to home. Muppets masquerading as so called experts. Fabrication and falsehoods abound. A total joke with egg splattered on officialdom faces. Comparing the FBI  with our own RIU would be unfair but because of the resources each are allocated BUT a level of professionalism is expected and it is not being reached in our case in my opinion and there are plenty of examples to support that claim.
    In a recent industry case in Victoria, the person tasked with making the final decision,  described the applicant as  being “characterised by ambivalence, equivocation, obfuscation and prevarication”.
    A perfect description for a few folk here I would have thought.

    The Diceman Cometh got a reaction from Charlie Bukowski in Large Debt, What to Do???   
    Doesn’t the Mongrel Mob have a debt collecting arm?
    Yes, they do and very effective they are to.
    It's called Work and Income.

    The Diceman Cometh got a reaction from Fartoomuch in Operation Inca - Part 2   
    Which says more about the lawyers than the law.
    I forget who said it but it seems appropriate in this instance:
    "A lawyer will do anything to win a case, sometimes he will even tell the truth."

    The Diceman Cometh got a reaction from Pam Robson in Looks like the NZRB Senior mangement is in lockdown..   
    I have it on first hand authority that HQ is currently similar to a Fawlty Towers B & B. Basil is struggling, those that   have been loyal to him for many years through different organisations, are now feeling well out of their depth. There is, apparently,  also strong evidence to suggest that Sybil may have packed her bags.

    Excellent post. Well presented.
    We are going backwards at a rapid pace. The atmosphere at Group 1 day at Hastings was akin to being at a funeral. The spark has gone out of the game, and quite frankly, I don't think the stripes give a stuff anymore. It's become mundane.

    The Diceman Cometh reacted to tasman man 11 in Police Raids   
    Well I'm flattered that you not only read my posts but you actually remember them !
    I don't ,cos only I know the recipe to them...are they devils advocate, tongue in cheek ,gentle sarcasm or holier than thou which is obviously an angle you prefer.
    You guess wrong ,none of those charged mean a horse's arse to me and none know my name nor have they spoken to me personally.
    Should they ban them all for life my syndicate horses won't be affected .
    Yes , I don't approve of drugs but this is 2018 and  some All Blacks ,League stars ,lawyers etc all dabble in them on a recreational basis....there are many high functioning addicts and alcoholics.
    Yes ,this is racing and gambling and in the 9 years I have been involved I've learned the inconsistent ,enigmatic motives of many involved...get used to it.
    Yes ,I look forward to the facts  coming about this race-fixing , party drug fiasco.
    and YES I think the police involvement in this....18 months of phone tapping etc is a huge waste of Police resources if they can only come up with one deception charge and a few very debatable races under investigation. As it was well known 17 months ago that our two top drivers were being watched by these undercover geniuses one would imagine they were driving like they always did. Could they be that thick.
    And YES I am very cynical that the Industry regulator the RIU felt it necessary to involve Police.....I don't think they live up to their $5 million plus price tag.
    Why can't regulators do their job.
    What do you think ...whats your holier than thou pollyana view or do you think your anonymous view will be scorned by us 'nutters' that read race cafe !

    Yes, yes Tim, he is no doubt a lovely young hard working boy, apple of his family's eye, wonderfully generous of soul, destined for a brilliant career, asset to the industry, etc, etc, etc..........
     
    But that does not alter the fact that I missed out on a FARKING nice collect because young Prick of a Pimply faced Matt, FARKING dragged my sole selection back off the gate .....to FARKING LAST, of all FARKING places, when the racing pattern of the day was to be on the FARKING pace, for Christ FARKING SAKE, and sat there like a FARKING stuffed muffin, and then picked the fattest FARKING mule in the race to follow while it made the shortest burst in equine history to improve, before steering right to FARKING outside fence of the FARKING track, so wide was he in fact, I noticed he grabbed a packet of  FARKING TALLEYS frozen peas from the production line down the back straight.......the FARKING IDJIT...................and still those lazy FARKING stripes, didn't bother to ask what the FARK was going on in that brilliant young mind of the hard working young pilot.....MATT the PRAT.
     
    Now Tim, it's just as well I don't hold a punting grudge for longer than 48 hours, because if this FARKING excuse of an equine animal just happens to run a FARKING drum tomorrow, I may not drive to the airport, board a flight to FARKING Tasmanman country, hire a car and navigate my way to the track, and locate young MATT the Prat.
    I would cover his lovely young head in Vaseline, and then proceed to insert it right up the FARKING ARSE OF THAT FARKING DIRTY FARKING EXCUSE OF AN FARKING EQUINE.........no hard FARKING feelings intended of course.
