The problem PP is that you are even more predictable. Racing NSW can do no wrong, the Championships are great, the quality of horse is fantastic etc, without any critical eye.
My comments defending the Championships are directed at people like you, Jackal, whispering and jfc who have an irrational hatred of Racing NSW and the ATC and TABCorp, and who make all sorts of exaggerated claims.
I only ever seem to have to direct these comments at the same 4 people.
Ever considered the possibility that you might be in the minority with your criticisms? The 2015 Championships were lauded by many more than the 4 whingers we have on this forum.
The fact you didn't know the history of the STC trying to internationalize the Tancred (and where do you think the impetus for the VRC to do the same for the Melbourne Cup came from?) is slightly concerning
Is it really? "Slightly concerning" that I couldn't recall the specifics of a promotion that happened nearly 3 decades ago. Geezus. I better pull my head in.
Maybe you are exaggerating a trivial point. Ever thought that Manikato1? In fact I think Jackals introduction of a "failed" promotion 30 years ago is trivial and not related to the current promotion. Jackal concludes that the current Championships will be a failure because of what he perceives was a failure 30 years ago. And then you come along and say it is "slightly concerning"? How
ing trivial are we going to get here
To be 100% honest, I couldn't care less what happened with a promotion 30 years ago which failed - probably because international horse travel wasn't as easy as it is today.
To also not realise that "The Championships" is nothing new, just a re branding of the AJC Easter carnival, suggests that you have been taken in by the marketing rather than reality.
Who said I don't realize that? I have said before that The Championships is Sydney's effort to copy Melbourne's successful spring racing carnival. Furthermore, I don't see any problem with them doing that. It is complimentary to Melbourne's spring carnival and there is no reason to compare. But once again the same 4 seem to think it is.
You have just posted a load of bitter trash. I expect better of you Manikato1.
Get over the STC thing. You might make better contributions if you do.
And stop being a stalker. You are the other one I get all these Tapatalk messages about.
