    Brian Martin commentating December 6th

    Brian is the best caller without a doubt. I prefer Darryl over Mark as well, kudos to Mark for everything he has given to the game over the many, many years but his calling is terrible! One toned and sadly, very boring. Darryl is only a smidgen better, but still, better all the same. The likes of Dennis Symes, Darryl MacAuley, Matthew Gardiner - all of them I personally think are great callers as well! Northern Racing is ok, Peter is still calling great, but South wise, Dave is probably the best down there. Trevor and Andy "so so".

    Awesome Bev, many great greyhounds came off and continue to off that lineage. Couple of my favourites were Bev's Veiwpoint and also big Tifino. Great memories!

    I agree, as a punter, I would like the information supplied. It would have had to have had a qualifying trial so the information should be made available.

    Brian Martin

    Mate... Each to their own, I appreciate that, but wow... I consider Brian Martin better than anyone we have going around at the moment. I respect everything that Roso and co. have contributed to the industry since Brian's departure and even before, but man oh man.. Bring him back lol, for the delight of many others as well as myself!

    Bago Bye Bye

    As far as I am concerned, full credit to Dave and Jean Fahey for the exceptional job they did with this greyhound. He obviously had ability prior to being sent over but after getting his mind on the job, this boy could be anything... 29.56 after a big break, wow!

    News from Wanganui

    I've been out of the game for a few years now, regularly visit but then get put off because of this... We tried many times to be heard back then and I bet they are still trying now. The board wont listen ZT, they never do. Anything for on course turnover. Look at whats happening atm. Cover up after cover up, whether that be The Board, JCA, RIU (neither here nor there, but my point stands). Another question is, can we trust the board? They have supplied us with so much doubt in the past.

    News from Wanganui

    Yes, Friday nights at Hatrick are terrible for trainers/owners that want to sit. "The booking system..." Trainers and Owners should get first preference to the tables and chairs as it is them putting on the show. Whether they have booked or not. I used to watch our elderly trainers, and some owners, sit outside in the cold as the tables were already booked out. The ratshit thing with this, is that majority of those who reserved spaces, didn't turn up until later in the night. The tables could and should have been utilized. Generating public interest is great, it brings $ to the table but when we start looking at the money rather than our participants, and treat participants as "visitors", we are F'D! I can't believe we are moving backwards, rather than forwards. If this is how it is, priorities need to be checked.

    TAB

    Whoever writes the comments needs to go lol.... Luckily I'm a regular viewer of daily races as I pay no attention to the comments anymore. They are misleading, supply wrong information and at times can put most punters off with their blabbering.. Calling dogs bitches (boys girls), wrong times, distances... Just a joke. It's almost like they have "predicting sentences" that pop up as soon as they type in a word.."Ah, that'll do.." As for our commentators....... Wow. The CD lacks, definitely. But that's for another topic lol

    Well well well D.Schofield

    Exactly. Those overseeing all of us, laying down all of the rules and regulations that we are supposed to adhere to are, half of the time, the main reason why events like this occur. They turn a blind eye to so many things and yet open their eyes wider to other issues.. Depending on who you are, in the end, decides whether you're seen or not. Another issue for another post lol... With the recent banning on greyhound racing in some states next door, I can't agree more. If we don't get people who are really serious about the game, who do not share the same passion as the small trainer who gets up early every morning of every day to clean, feed, train and care for their pup who has never run better than 5th in its entire career, week in and week out, then again, I agree. The outcome remains... Lazy, useless butts who are massively overpaid will continue to dictate...

    Well well well D.Schofield

    The three of them choosing not to provide a hair sample says enough for me. Although it was their right to decline and after seeking advice I may add, if you had nothing to hide and if you wanted the best possible outcome for your father and/or boss given the situation, then you wouldn't need to seek advice and piss arse around. You would have provided what was necessary to clear your names from any wrong doings. Instead, you three chose not to provide anything and you also lied about David's presence on the property at the time. Again, if you had nothing to hide, why lie? Why decline? Why hide? Essentially, what has happened is the ruins of "a stellar career" but also the shit that will be associated with the name "Schofield". Not a good way to end terms...
