It is Rugbee League but knowing the magic of Vílandys at the moment, he might just merge Rugby too with League.   :lol:

On a racing note, there are talks about owners returning to racing in late June or early July. I do wonder if that happens will they have limits per horse  as it increases chances of a contamination down the track. With spring racing a few months away, is it worth the risk?

Please say "Rugby Union".

The Vics can't work out the difference between Union and League as both are "Rugby" to them.

Is that a trick question . .

I don't really, but from what I can make of it the AFLW is marginally stronger  :whistle:

Interesting article from Webster regarding Vílandys and his ruling regarding the one referee system. There is also a strange dig at the NRL TV deal but to be honest it suits NRL a lot especially with the $2.3b higher than anything going at the moment and Vílandys job is to help the NRL.

Depends on what team you follow.

I have a couple of mates that follow Carlton and they reckon that their women's team would definitely beat the mens.

I may not necessarily agree with a one referee system as I am not sure if the error rate will improve however I canít blame Vílandys for trying this and getting more accountability for referees.

Last week at Wyong on 4th June Racing NSW were only able to cobble together a 6 race meeting

Today at Canterbury again Racing NSW could only find enough horses for a 6 race meeting

The pool of people able to afford city and provincial class horses in NSW is shrinking and we are entering the end game

Someone needs to tell Arteus about the virus and restrictions and the effect it is having on the economy.

Also that we had a metro meeting son Saturday and Monday.

In fact by next Saturday, and including both Saturdays, Sydney would have had two more metro meetings than any other capital city.

So if you actually take the time to add up the number of total runners and compare this summed amount to other states (instead of writing thought bubbles) then........... :chin:

In North Qld the Covid Shutdown has seen a surge in acceptances . .

Owners/ Trainers seem to have been treating every meeting as if it is their last

Acceptances have been at all time highs and 'split' races have seen cards of 9 and 10 races being the norm . .

A feast of racing . . but not for the regular patrons  :confused1:

But . .

Alas, most of the bush clubs who depend on patrons for their survival, have had to scrap their meetings . .

Thanks Villa   emthup

Sydney Metropolitan Runners since Saturday: 216
Melbourne Metropolitan Runners since Saturday: 110

What is going on in Melbourne? They should have many more runners because of the small size of the state.

With the ongoing integrity issues (never seems to end) and the endless drain on finances from running racing.com perhaps things are going backwards a little?

To have around half the runners that they have in Sydney begs the question doesn't it? I didn't realize things were that bad.

Also, you mentioned the provincial meetings in Victoria, but somehow forgot to include the provincial meetings in NSW. Pretty glaring error really.

Without counting numbers, there were 8 races at Newcastle on Saturday, another 8 at Hawkesbury on Sunday.

And if we are including Sale and Scone, why didn't you mention the 5 meetings at Grafton, Tamworth, Sapphire Coast, Ballina and Corowa and the two meetings at Casterton and Swan Hill??

Are you being a bit selective in what you put out there?  ;)

It seems that AFL and NRL both believe they outdid each other in the revised tv deals.

I for one think that Foxtel and the network did better in the long term code than the two codes as things are slowly getting back to normal.

Another 6 race meeting at Canterbury on Wednesday.  The third 6 race meeting on the Sydney and NSW provincial circuits in the last few weeks

Looks like it has gotten too expensive to own a horse in Sydney.  When you push prizemoney higher the yearling prices also go up (which benefits stud owners).  And the higher yearling prices go the smaller and smaller the pool of people who can afford to own a horse (or even a share in a horse).  This has been obvious for years but we are only now seeing the impact of these policies of endlessly pushing prizemoney higher than Mt Everest

Mair heaven!

It's what he's been whining/pining for, for years.

Let's see how the industry survives if Mair's suggested reforms becomes the norm.

With all the Covid19 cases in Victoria, I do wonder if Vílandys will reduce or stop Victorian horses coming down in the future?

Chief Ďhurtí at footage
THE boss of Racing NSW was shocked and ďhurtĒ when he tuned in to see horrific footage of retired racehorses being slaughtered Ė spliced with an interview he had done in good faith Ė a court has heard.

Peter Vílandys is suing the ABC and a journalist in the Federal Court for defamation following an episode of 7.30, which he claims painted him as though he ďcallously permitted the wholesale slaughterĒ of horses. He is seeking aggravated damages over the segment titled The Final Race, which aired in October 2019.

Lawyers previously told the court the national broadcaster did not disclose to Mr Vílandys it had obtained the footage before he fronted an interview for the program.

ENDS

Buried away in the CM...... not given any prominence .......I don't fancy his chances if he was only "shocked and hurt"........his feelings should have improved considerably after being headhunted to head up the ARL....... a high profile position  which doesn't fit with satisfying the defamation laws that the ABC program  brought his reputation into public disrepute, ridicule and contempt ......that's my observation.

Giddy Up :beer:
