Agreed. It's tough to see a way past these issues. How do you know the final odds well enough to weigh your wagers accordingly when all the money comes in in the final minute?

The very first line of the article says they're cutting live races because slot revenue is way down due to increased competition and they don't have the money to pay the purses. So they're not doing...

12-horse fields in the rain were a pretty cruel twist of fate for someone learning on the job.

I think what people don't seem to get is that Rudulph was on TVG for 12 years, left, then was brought back. He's done this same routine the whole time. This is how TVG wants him to cover racing or...

I put all of the blame on Parx for putting someone on the air who is not ready for it. I don't blame her for taking the job, but with all the grief people like Grunder, Battaglia, etc. took on here...

Well that's all tactics. Now you are happy if the starters give you 5 or 6 innings followed by a stream of guys who throw 99 with nasty breaking stuff. But we digress.

You keep using this numerical comparison but it makes absolutely no sense. How does six races equal one season for other sports? Lots of all-time great pitchers and quarterbacks play 20 seasons. So...

What you wrote here is true, but it's also not the point you made earlier about 2-1 horses that people were disproving using facts. Moving the goalposts doesn't make your earlier statements correct.

Everyone here bitched and moaned about TVG since its inception.

Now TVG has changed, and everyone wants the old TVG back.

You can't make it up.
