This one crops up at least once a year.

What are the odds it will rise up once more in 2017?

It has a lot to do with the fact that there are only 8 numbers involved each time.

And what happens after you draw box 5 one day? The chances are that you are quite possibly going to get 5 the next time. And the next time.

The old "trick" question comes to mind. If you toss a coin 49 times and it comes up heads 49 times what are the odds for the 50th toss?

Answer is: the same odds as the very first toss.

The randomness of the box draw system has been outlined on a number of occasions, the last being in On Track a wee while ago.

I understand it is just as random to put the numbers in one hat, the names in another and start drawing. After all, either it is random or it isn't. Time-consuming though.

Good "luck" to you all.

The hat one is transparent though Peter.

Ha ha.

Perhaps you know the one about the bloke that was so fed up with not winning a raffle at the local bowls club he jacked it up so that every ticket that went into the hat was his - number 6.

Unfortunately the chap who got the job to draw out the winning number came up with number 7. It was the hat size.

And after an electrifying win last Sunday we're back to the crap box again. He's only ever drawn 2 out of 2, and now 8 out of 7. Random, my foot. By the way, dog 1 is now into box 1 for the 14th time. It's not what you know, but who you know.

:Dyep love the honesty, a shame it's a sham, they hate me and stick it to me with my dogs that cry out for an inside draw cheers WB
