Got this from a forum in WA
Once again, the talking heads on Sky Channel are feeding the chooks, i.e. the stay at home punters, with a load of unmitigated cr@p.
"We have just laid a bet of $3,500 at 6.50 on nackers",sorry,I forgot the horses name but that's really irrelevant because it's the same bulldust every race, said the rep from Tabcorp on Sky last Saturday.
So I had a quick look on Betfair. There was $4,500 available at $10.50 if the mug that took the $6.50 would only have had a look. It got me thinking. Are there really idiots out there putting $3,500 on horses at $4.00 less than the best odds available? Or is it just more cr@p from the Tab rep on Sky relaying false bets that he's told through his earpiece by someone at Tab headquarters, to tell the gullible uninformed geese that watch him and hang on his every word.
After having a conversation with a mate of mine, I have come to the conclusion that it is the latter. Feed the mugs bulldust and they will follow.
My mate decided to attend the Meadows twilight greyhound meeting last Wednesday.
He went up to the tote window and tried to have $100 on a dog that was $3.00 FIXED ODDS. He waited while the big boss at Tabcorp thought about it, and received a ticket betting him HALF of his requested bet.
So, seeing that the odds showing on the fixed odds screen remained at $3.00, even after he had placed his huge bet, he tried to put the other $50.00 on at the $3.00. The big boss at Tabcorb must have broken into a sweat, because back came the ticket $20.00/$10.00. The $3.00 remained on the screen, but my mate was laughing so hard, that he couldn't be bothered having the remaining $40.00 on the dog.
The son-in-law of another friend of mine, received an email from Tabcorp two weeks ago, stating that Tabcorp were no longer able to offer him ANY FIXED ODDS PRICES ON ANY RACING EVENTS ON WHICH TABCORP OPERATES. He had had a winning streak and won $2800 off Tabcorp betting fixed odds over a period of 4 months.
They are an absolute joke and a disgrace.
It is unfortunate that our racing journalists are afraid of losing their jobs by exposing Tabcorp for the joke that they really are. Tabcorp spend a fortune advertising in the Murdoch run Newscorp papers and pay for the lift out form guides that appear in the daily Herald Sun here in Melbourne and the daily Telegraph in Sydney.
I just hope that members of PTT and those who visit this web site, won't tumble into the garbage that spews forth from the mouths of those who promote Tabcorp.
All Tabcop are doing, is insulting the intelligence of, and taking advantage of, the gullibility of the uninformed punter.
When a punter can't place $100 on a dog at 2/1, or is banned for winning the massive amount of $2,800 over a four month period, with a publicly listed Company which made over $400 million profit last year, and that Companies representatives continue to cr@p on about the thousands of dollars that are supposedly wagered with them, it demeans Tabcorp, Sky Chanel, which is owned by Tabcorp, every presenter on that Channel and every journalist in Australia who report and write about the so called big bets which this discredited organisation claim to have taken.
