Darren Flindell -- time for a holiday break

I have about had it with the intrusion of the 'caller voice' into broadcast territory well beyond his brief.

The caller-voice is now doing endlessly repeated but mindless ads for TAB  -- and it already has too-long segments for tip sessions that few would pay attention to.

...... unable to be stifled .........it has the last word on everything ......even the late mail segments are infused with observations not needed.

You are complete utter imbecile.

It would have taken him a couple of hours to make a radio ad. Who cares how often it gets played.

Most weeks he has Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Friday off.

Why wouldn’t Tabcorp try and get value out of what they are paying him.

He is hardly over worked.

I would like to plead 'guilty'

I suspect the add-ons to calling are about getting paid even more.

He comes across as one of those buskers you would only pay to go away -- race calling only please  -- ok -- with the boom box and the overexcited hype.

...........an imbicile responds

Why wouldn’t Tabcorp try and get value out of what they are paying him.

Surely it is the ATC contracting DF to call the races -- with a boom box and riding instructions to over hype the calls.

......... work for tabcorp on 2KSKY looks like moonlighting, leveraging off the ATC voice-contract.

Let us keep an eye on his tips -- of any horse not among the top-five.

Callers in NSW are employed by Sky not by the clubs.

Thank you for the correction on the paymaster

........... my benchmark for the quality of the tips will be 'compared to Monty'.

Today, both included all bar Sanctioned in their tips but overall a margin to the Voice having the winners higher in the list.

Bloody terrible.
