Crucible curse. Fuck you Selby. Go spend the next week furiously practising you git.

Have to love the archetype Scottish flame haired tempter though. He played a blinder, even Willie Thorne sounded moist.

 

 

McGill is a talent I'll give you that, but I'm not going to start lauding him as the future prodigy yet as we've been here before too many times in the past with various exciting players who've fizzled into failure. If he beats Murphy (I'd be very surprised if Perry gets through) in the quarters, then I'll start considering him a serious bet for the future and gladly so. On a more important note, he's a Scot who smiles at the table and can play snooker, has to be the second coming.

 perhaps they ought to be treating Betting advertising in the same way that they have with smoking and, to a lesser extent, drinking.

They wont tho.

 

 

Interesting point.  It's gone completely the other way.  Years ago I worked in betting shops, and they were compelled by law to be utterly cheerless.  TV wasn't allowed, all you had was the Extel "blower" which transmitted audio commentary and betting shows from the courses.  I remember we weren't even allowed to display posters for local events - by law!  Just the Sporting Life pinned on the walls.  Now they've got coffee machines, TV coverage of all events and god knows what else, making it quite the little home from home.

I should point out that I am now no longer banned from any establishments in Fraserburgh.

 

After a 2 and a bit month campaign against the organisation in question (which used to employ me), they have climbed down and admitted that management acted unprofessionally in the way they treated me on the day. Furthermore they have graciously allowed me to enter their premises as a customer (Yas). This did not go as far as an apology, but it was good enough. 

 

In addition to this in a second reply the Chairman of the Board wrote to me explaining that he had understood the months since my forced dismissal had been 'difficult' for me, and went on to say he was sorry about the "continued actions of others".

 

The very next day I learned that the Trustee who was responsible for me losing my job, and the Trustee who pushed for me to banned from the building, resigned.

 

In short: I've beaten the fuckers.

I've beaten them so convincingly I should probably ask for my old job back...

Money can be made from matched betting though it's pretty measly amounts.

Don't get it either. You don't even have to know or do the maths, it only takes the thought "I wonder if they invested all this money in high street shops so they could give even more money away?". If you cannot answer that one you probably deserve to go broke.

People talking about their football accumulator coupons. You'd have won £84 if Chesterfield had just held on for a draw would you? Fascinating.

 

The modern day equivalent of your mum saying "ah, if only that had been another £1,000,000 we'd have won a million pounds!" after she finishes scratching off her lottery tickets.

How strange, I was thinking that the other day.

Whats really getting up my hooter is the avalanche of Betting adverts.

If its not Ray Winston its a bunch of "lads" "avin a great larffff" while they spend their whole fucking wages on who they hope will win the 2.30 at Kempton.

Ok, I DONT get the fascination of gambling and, on the basis that bookmakers are not impoverished souls looking like vagrants and getting around by wanky old bikes, I don't see the point tbh.

Having said that, perhaps they ought to be treating Betting advertising in the same way that they have with smoking and, to a lesser extent, drinking.
