I'm tipping the ABC will be hearing from PM along the lines of "inflated fields"

They won't be hearing from those here who consider the ABC too biased......they will have to wait until Sky and the commercial channels investigate their sponsors, so good luck with that.

There is a whisper out there that Ray Thomas from the Daily Terrograph and Peter Gleeson from the Courier Mail are combining their 'journalistic' skills and launching a deep probe into the gambling industry ......so you have a possibility there.......however my source on that one is not always reliable!

This is just in case anyone here suffer blood pressure problems.......Warning...(graphic content) the ABC reporter's name can be found here.......(CLICK HERE)   :lol:

Pete might be happy. However the Racing Bodies will be unhappy because if it hits during a slow news week, there will be a push to ban or curb gambling advertising during sports.

I honestly think curbing gambling advertising during sports similar to what they with cigarette advertising maybe a step in the long run.

A local footy coach says the number of kids who know the odds and lines of footy games and American sports is a bad sign of the times.

If the ABC investigates the number of gambling sponsors who are affiliated with the NRL and AFL code and clubs, they will have a field especially if they work out how many players are addicted to gambling.

Here is a podcast of ABC's 7.30 Report on Thursday night. Seems to me it is all about betting "in the run " on sports, rather than about horse racing.

Things we'd like to know ......

Well at least they've published the list of things they are going to prove before the investigation has begun.

If they investigate the relationships between the sports or racing clubs and gambling operators, I wonder if they will uncover any kickbacks to any administrators.

If they ever investigate an o/s based operator regarding how many operators are in Australia compared to o/s, there could be a whole lot of fun especially as some of their functions only operate on their local hours.
