  1. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    I didn't catch what it's about, only that Sam McLure will be on shortly to talk about it. Im with you, hopefully the news are good
  2. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    Did anyone hear about a press conference coming out of the club today? Im certain I heard Tim Watson say this a short time ago.
  3. Fenceology Predicts the ladder

    I'll go out on a limb and say if we improve our ladder position from last year we play finals.
  4. Spring Carnival Caulfield

    Yeah Macca, I think Dan worked too hard early but in saying that I think the younger horses are too good for him these days. It was good finish though between the top 2. Looking forward to your selections for Hong Kong tomorrow.
  5. Spring Carnival Caulfield

    When Dan was in good form and going through the grades his rating enabled him to enter strong races with a light weight and it turned out as a success. When a horse loses form and doesn't register a win for a while the rating of that particular horse will drop but it still might be one of the highest rated horses in the race like Dan was today, hence the big weight. As it stands today Dan is an 83 rating I believe. For him to gain a light weight he would need to enter a benchmark 90 race or higher(listed/group). In that case, due to the fact his best is beyond him he would be way out of his depth in strong races. Connections are in a tough spot now, for him to be a realistic chance of winning again they would need to target a weak race like an 80 benchmark or country handicap, but all that does is make him carry the grandstand. I hope that makes sense a tad, I really shouldn't be typing on the back of a few scotches..
  6. No suspensions!!! Bernie please? No more brain fades.

    G'Day Macca, hard to go past Wise Hero in my opinion also. Malaise is the other one I fancy, I will try and put some sort of trifecta with Dan in there. Malaise ran almost a second slower than Wise Hero in winning its last start over the same distance and what looked a similar grade also. Like you stated, if Wise Hero runs anywhere near the time he ran last start it would be hard to beat. It would be nice to get a collect today and fund the upcoming Autumn Carnival.

    No update as yet but at those odds I will have something each way just in case the Zephyr gets up. My mate says the horse has to win a race eventually....today seems as good a time as any.
  9. Spring Carnival Caulfield

    Dan Zephyr has accepted for Flemington this Saturday. It looks like connections are trying hard to get the horse another win but the current odds suggest otherwise. As far as I am aware they will run him. https://www.racenet.com.au/racing-form-guide/flemington-20180120/vrc-young-members-handicap-race-9 Lets hope he starts the year a lot better than how he finished the last.
  10. Gawn on SEN 16/11

    The soccer schedule in Europe in certain domestic leagues is demanding enough IMO. Most of the top European leagues consist of a 38 game regular season, add domestic cup games, Champions and Europa League games and they are well on the way of featuring in over 50 competitive matches in a season. In the off season the top clubs travel to various countries for warm up/exhibition matches. We really can't compare our sport to the top European leagues especially Barcelona FC. Their record speaks for itself, boot camp or not.

    Top Shelf 666......and that equals 18, may this be the year.
  12. 2018's 'breakout' player

    .....and as long as we star somewhere in between those lines we should be fine. P.S. O Mac also looking good.
  13. Demons co-captain hopeful of facing Cats in round 1. http://m.afl.com.au/news/2018-01-12/cautious-viney-still-weeks-from-full-training Apologies if this has been posted already.

    Angus Brayshaw. Hopefully we get a full season out of this kid so he can showcase his potential.
  15. 2017 Player Reviews: # 32 Tomas Bugg

    Funny you mention the Crows game, I watched the highlights of that game today and that was a huge goal he kicked from the pocket in the second quarter. Bobbed up for another also. He has an ability to find space, has a good leap and his defensive efforts are pretty good. Someone posted a pic of their TV after the QB clash pointing out a 50 metre chase by Bugg that thwarted a Pies attack at a crucial stage in the last.

    Exactly DemonOx, I spoke to them directly on the phone back in October and I could hear the person typing on the computer when I was requesting which player is to go with each name. Therefore, you would assume the information was entered correctly at that point in time. When I called them about the mistake, they took the names again, threw me the sorry line and advised me the cards will be posted again. Being a week or so before Christmas there was no chance I was receiving their cards by Christmas.
  17. 2018 Membership Thread

    It was disappointing. I spoke to someone from the membership department via phone in regards to customising the kids cards back in October, it would have been nice for them to receive the cards with their favourite players on there in time for Christmas. I did receive a "sorry about that" though.
  18. 2018 Membership Thread

    No scarf here either with the pack and they sent me the wrong membership cards for the kids.
  19. This doesn't look good for him. Sounds like he's coming from a long way back. Having a look at him prior to Christmas, it looked like he struggled to maintain muscle during his rehab. Here's wishing he makes it back and soon.
  20. Spring Carnival Caulfield

    The Brisbane winter carnival is one my favourites. I lived in Brisbane from 2011-14 and would frequent the local on Saturdays to watch the Dees with the races in the background. With our performances during that time it wasn't hard to turn your attention to the races. I attended Stradbroke Handicap Day one year whilst up there. It was a great day out with many quality horses running. Best part was you didn't have to push through 100,000 people to get to a bar.
  21. Spring Carnival Caulfield

    I enjoy having a flutter during the carnivals and will do as much study as possible. I tend to mix it up during those times with quinellas, trifectas and first fours. I will back a horse to win if I believe it's overs in the betting. I finished slightly in front during the spring. I haven't had much success after the carnival but no great damage done either. This time of the year I rely on a work colleague for tips, he has a horse with the Weir stable and gets some good word on horses, especially mid-week. The fields aren't as strong and you get some decent value for runners. I was going to share a tip yesterday on here but the Mornington meeting was called off. The horse is Von Richter, I'll see if it's worth following next run. I'll always have a small bet on the Zephyr when and where he runs and I've been following your selections lately for races you mention. I'll invest a small amount with a small combination to boost the percentage, today the 7 split me and I missed out on the tri. Silly me, in hindsight I could've taken your top selections for 1st and added the 7 and 8 for second and third. I look forward to your Magic Millions selections, it's usually a great racing day. There is a $242,000 Maiden Plate on the day with $142,500 for first. Not bad for a first time winner compared to the horses that slug it out in $15,000 maidens around the country.
  22. Spring Carnival Caulfield

    Hi Macca, once again spot on with your selections. I hope you got some kind of return with the right combination. The 7 was showing $62 on the tote at the jump.
  23. List Updates by Goodwin

    Phew, I felt all alone on that one as well....
  24. List Updates by Goodwin

    Jonesy wants a decent write up. Most players are sitting poolside sipping cocktails and our co-captain is doing this during the break.
  25. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    They will fill the 3pm - 6pm time slot. It will be called " KB and the Doc". I posted the wrong time slot earlier.
