    GONSTA reacted to WhoKnows in TAB Website Issues..   
    I've never heard of a TAB not being able to give you a cheque, I have had to get a cheque on a number of times from my local when they invariably don't have enough money to pay you, if your branch cannot even provide that service then that is pathetic.

    GONSTA reacted to N1MUE in Champion of Spring results - Discussion Thread   
    If you want people to enter both horse name and number you might want to be explicit about what happens if they don't match.  Number prevails or name prevails or that selection is null & void?
    Would be good to spell out this required entry format and the 100 point penalty in next week's entry thread as not everyone will read this post.  I'm picking there will be a fair few 100 point penalties coming up.

    GONSTA reacted to slam dunk in Champion Tipster of the Spring Comp   
    Just a suggestion.
    If each participant copies and paste each weeks template of races then just adds the relevant horse number alongside then it would be quite easy to automatically process the comp with a few lines of code. Don't know how PBA is doing it keen to find out.

    GONSTA reacted to Bimbo in Why OZ leaves us for dead!   
    The last commingled dog race was at 3:15 pm so it had nothing to do with Sandown.
    It's not an aberration.  It's the same every week.  Last week commingled win pools Race 10 = 8.4 k, Race 11 = 7.9 k, Race 12 = 6.9 k.  Non-commingled win pools were Race 13 = 1.4 k, Race 14 = 1.9 k, Race 15 = 2.4 k.
    The amount bet with the New Zealand TAB by New Zealand punters is pathetically small.  The Australians are betting more on our races than we are.

    Hard to say exactly how much interest there is in New Zealand racing overseas, but I think it might be a bit more than what you think Biff.  Ubet win pools on gallops get up around 7 k from what I've seen and a fair bit of our commingled pool must be Australian money.  Just look at today's dog races.  Race 12 was the last commingled race.  Last three commingled win pools were Race 10 = 10.5 k, Race 11 = 12.8 k, Race 12 = 9.6 k.  Non-commingled win pools were Race 13 = 3 k, Race 14 = 2.9 k, Race 15 = 1.9 k.  From that you don't need to be a rocket scientist to work out whether there's interest overseas or not.

    The Auckland sectionals from Sunday September 4th can be seen here
    Plus there is a free login to the dog ratings at Palmerston North Dogs today, as there is every Monday, with username Formpro and Password speed. Check out the new 'Racing Style' which is great for working out where the early speed will come from.

    Some of the winners we could have backed from last week's sectionals info at today's meeting:
    Maybe it really is information that can lead to some nice returns. Is it because they just go flat out all the way?  If they get knocked early and run home well, that can be picked up by the Run Home sectionals and with a clearer run next start, can win. The meeting from today will be posted by tomorrow night. Any thoughts on this are welcome.
    Global Conquest- fastest Lead Up and race time over 527m and paid $10!
    Spud Missile 4th = fastest Lead up sectional - leads  and wins well $7 ( Zipping Link also featured well in the same race but missed the jump and that was that- must have been my money that slowed him up.)
    Electric Eye Dee 7th fastest Run Home which was good for a C1 dog- was last away but used that closing power to run over them. $2.50
    Tee Kay Yapper 3rd fastest Run Home and used that power to get home from well back again $9.50
    Fabralee 3rd fastest Lead Up sectional - leads and pays $22

    Wayne, we have tried to tell you how to work around the limitations imposed on you but you all you want to do is continually moan. Many others who have more severe limitations than you can still get on by using their brains, but not you. Enough said I guess.

    Brodie you are the one dreaming. I am restricted on several agencies but can still get on for 20k plus if I want by using a bit of stealth.Charging in like a wounded bull with your big bets you have shot yourself in the foot and no one has any sympathy!  Anything over 250 will be a red flag to them so unless you change your method you are %^$#ed.

    GONSTA got a reaction from Spikecity in Who Is The TABs Harness Bookie?   
    I think he does mate. I'm obviously not the only one sick and tired of your whinging on here!! I see people without tab accounts getting on for 5-10k without an issue regularly. Whether it's at a pub tab, SST or an agency. Get the odd occassion where it takes 10-15 seconds for bet acceptance but they are more often than not accepted ( Probably checking to see if it's that pro punter Brodie or is it Allan who they lose sleep over  ).   Many other ways around your dilemma Brodie as many people have told you over the last few months but you still go on about it like  there isn't.

    Brodie will be in it - so no one else will have a chance against him - if he is half as successful as he claims.

    What about everyone has $10 to spend on every G1/2 race and can either go 10 win, 10 place or 5 each way. Maybe a bit more work for the person that runs it but a bit of strategy involved. I'm in no matter the rules, cheers.

    And while we are at it let's ban Phil Williamson and Paul Niarn from all trotting events, Chris Waller from Australia and Joel Moreira from Hong Kong. Probably should ban the All Blacks too - tiresome seeing them winning all the time.  Be careful Greg and Nina Hope too as you are winning far too many races recently. Why can't people just enjoy wonderful horseman/womanship and stop living negatively everyday. Don't you think Brodie we are sick of you whinging everyday about your unproven restrictions and how wonderfully your life is, and your snide comments re successful trainers must be using something? It gets tiresome.

    We are trialing publishing all individual  Opening and  closing sectionals plus all adjusted race times of every greyhound at Auckland to gauge how much interest there is in them. If you want them or have any feedback, please let us know, because if we don't get significant interest, we won't be continuing them, as they tend to take a while to calculate.
