Is WildBill under contract to the Rx or will we see him post here at times?
No, WildBill is not currently a writer here, but he may someday throw us an article. I always liked Bill and his insights, especially economics and politics.

Already an edited post. wow
No, apparently our web guys named all the smilies ... I guess the one you see up there is called 'h e a t' (presuming you were writing 'c h e a t ing' ...)

We will get that fixed asap.

Homedog, I was trying to fix a tech issue with the smilies when I edited your post.

We'll get it right. I am aware of the cause.

There were two matches today with pretty awesome line moves.. Ginepri and Myskina.. Myskina's was linked to the injury, but she got through..

Ginepri over Safin was a shock result though, I thought Safin would do the business, but have a lot of respect for Ginepril, and he's good on the surface.. the OnCourt program was giving him a 48% shot... so luckily I left the scalp even -- I was intending to weight to Safin.

Do you follow the WTA tour Glaken? I do most of my pure betting there.. the up and comers often have value -- Ana Ivanovic for example until recently was consistently underpriced.

The only guy I've ever backed heavily on the ATP tour was Marcos Baghdatis -- a Cypriot guy I know through friends on the Island.. and he lost most of his value after his run at the French.

Field is a good bet JMan.

Shrink, what does "See Yeah" mean exactly?

Yes the same for me on WTA...I will be working on the WTA Open preview this weekend.

I'll forgive you for the historic perspective ;-)

I could walk around the town center here tomorrow (England), see about 80 people wearing Yankees caps, and maybe 1 could name 1 Yankees player.. the commercialisation of the Yankees annoys me.

Let me welcome this site as well - congrats. cheers

Which brings me to the following questions: was that email between you and Millenium real, the one below, that was posted by Millenium in apparent anger in another forum?

Second question: since Mr. Doyle Brunson will be guest posting here, I wonder if you might post a query to him concerning the unverified details of the $700 million dollar 'phantom' bid (apparently phantom) that was made in a buyout offer for WPT - why did the financing fall through? No one including the S.E.C. has ever seen any details of the offer, but that didn't stop the stock from taking a joyride. TIA

==========================================================
Alleged email to Millenium from the Shrink ....

I was about to email this to you but I see yours came first...

I understand that you are upset by our decision to take the Millennium
banner down for the time being and I hope that you will hear me out and
work with me to come to a resolution that will be favorable to both of
us.

We FULLY agree that the backlash against Millennium is unwarranted and
blown way out of proportion. And if EOG were already established and
relied on traffic outside of these current forum naysayers, we would
not be making this decision. The problem that we have is that
PERCEPTION is everything.
And, out of the gate, our traffic is going
to be exclusively from posters from the Rx and others.

We do have a solution that I think will help us bring you onto the site
with a minimum of backlash. We want to do two things in the early days
of XXX. First, we will begin a thread in which I will state that I
believe in Millennium 100% and don't feel that their connection to BoS
means that they should carry the same bad reputation.
Secondly, we
will be opening another advertising spot whereby sports books can have
their own Overview page as the other advertisers do. We will be
charging advertisers $1k per month for this spot but will give this to
you FREE. In the thread we start backing Millennium, we will openly
state that we have given you this spot for free as a measure of good
faith and to demonstrate that we have TOTAL faith in your company.
We will let posters know that if all goes well with Millennium for six
months, that we plan to reinstate you as a DIAMOND advertiser.


We would encourage you to participate in this discussion freely and
often. In the end, this might help to ease the association with BoS
and boost the perception these posters have of Millennium's credibility
to the point where it should be already.


Please believe that this has been a very difficult decision for me to
make and that I will do everything in my power to make this right with
you. But we absolutely need to work on the posters first and foremost.


We will be out of business without them and being a brand new company,
we want to do everything we can to let them know that we are there for
THEM first.

I will give you a call soon to follow up to this email. I want us to
work this out.

Ken.

I do NOT believe for ONE SECOND that THE SHRINK wrote that email!

This "BETMILLINIUM" guy is OBVIOUSLY just upset that he was not allowed to advertise on EOG!

Perhaps if BETMILLINUIM spent a bit more time and effort repairing THEIR OWN repoutation, and less time worring about SLINGING MUD, they would be fit for such a respected site as this one!

I took a quick look at everything. It's very comprehensive and impressive. It's also very easy to navigate.

The handicapping section is one thing that all players need. I really like the matchup section. Everything is on one page including the current weather. I also like the drop down menu which makes it easy to go to another matchup.

A couple of things that I would like to see added there are SP stats and current weather. It's a must to see the last five starts for pitchers. Also GB to FB ratio is nice. Besides the current weather I would like to see the predicted game time weather too.

Most know which way ballbarks face but it would be a help to also add if the wind is blowing out. If the wind in Chicago is out of the S 10 miles/hour it would also be nice to say " out to left 10mph".

I also like the odds that are up. Are the odds live or delayed? Also do they refresh automatically or is it on a delay such as 30 seconds?


Odds on the first person to have a meltdown:
Jman -140
Field +120

I'm a bit concerned by the touts selling picks section.. I hope that won't be pushed too heavily in the forums and the rest of the site.

Hey, Meyer used the word 'PoppyCOCK' - he has violated the terms of his agreement that curse words would not be used here, and I believe he should be given a half-hour timeout to think over his transgression.

From what I understood, this was supposed to be a civil place where the truth could be discussed and exposed, if necessary. Was I wrong?

Just a question Meyer: If you wanted to, could you shit in Shrink's pants?
