I used to look forward to Racenet TV's sessions with Clocka and Clinton Payne. They were an amusing and informative pair but now Clinton seems to have been replaced by a bald giggling goose called Dallas.

Who is this guy, where did he come from, how did he get the job and how can we stop his stupid giggling? Watching him is almost painful, puts me off enormously and I'm sure it is costing me winners because I can't watch as much of Racenet TV as I did in the past.

Just wonderin'.

When I asked where did he come from I was wondering more about where he worked in the industry before arriving at Racenet TV rather than where he once lived.

I was watching him today with a friend who said he must own Racenet 'cause surely that's the only way he'd get a job there.

If it's Dallas Baker he used to work as a producer on KY a few years back (Radley's show maybe?), but I haven't seen of him in a few years.

That'd be him Gintara, I just Googled him and found a Racenet page where he was referred to as Dallas Baker the Racenet TV General Manager.

So I guess they are stuck with him.

Wonder how Radley coped with the giggling.

I met him a number of years ago Phil (although he had hair then) as he was a friend of a friend etc.

He wasn't a bad sort of bloke although being from the media you would best describe him as 'confident'   :biggrin:

New show countdown - an outlet for racing's punters
Racenet
Thursday, 17 December 2009

RacenetTV is launching a new show on Friday – one committed to giving a voice to a section of the industry so often overlooked by decision-makers.

The Punters’ Show will be online for the first time with two Sydney betting ring regulars joining RacenetTV’s Dallas Baker to discuss all the issues affecting racing’s biggest consumer.

Marc Lambourne and Glenn Pollett are well known to Sydney racegoers.

They are not short of an opinion and they are not afraid to tell it how it is when it comes to punters spending their hard-earned.

“I’m looking forward to being back in the media and pulling no punches,” Lambourne declared.

Pollett, who has been a bookmaker and now never misses a meeting as a punter, is just as enthusiastic when it comes to punters receiving a fair deal.

“Hopefully, to use a well-known phrase, ‘we’ll keep the bastards honest’,” he says.

To ensure the voice of the punter is heard, Racenet is inviting its audience to participate in the show by bringing issues and questions to the panel.

Registration for questions to be put to the panel will be open after Friday’s show.

Will be worth watching, Glen Pollett is one funny bloke. (Some would say mad).

Hope he tells the Donegal Mist story which made him the biggest bookie in Australia for about 2 months.

would be worth watching without the "billiard ball"....i agree...i haven't watched ANY Racenet.tv since he came onto the scene,hence my punting is a fraction of what it was. :whistle:
