Why is crossing to an upcoming race after another has completed a joke?
Who pays for this coverage? Have you asked yourselves that question?
If Racing SA want to go with racing.com that is their prerogative.
But in amongst the passionate claims of "unfair treatment" and the urgings of people to stick it to the bastards, have you guys thought this through?
If Racing SA sign with racing.com and retain their exclusive parimutuel wagering agreement with Tatts, why would TABCorp even bother covering SA racing?
In fact, when the "place of consumption tax" comes in on July 1 for SA racing, the corporates have already said they will cease coverage.
And when the only place you can watch SA racing will be on racing.com, and the only outlet you can bet on it is with Tatts or Crownbet (with something like a 40%+ takeout), and the revenues drop off a cliff, who you gonna blame then?
I'll bookmark this thread so we can have a laugh together when the blame is apportioned to other parties if all this happens
