    Only time will tell. Best of luck. Don't have much hope though.

                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.
                When asked generally about recruiting and cheating in the NCAA, the 67-year-old Coach Bob Knight didn't mince words. "In college basketball, if you get caught cheating, they should shoot you because you're too dumb to be alive," he said.

                      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.

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

                                                                  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.

                                                                  Comment

                                                                    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

                                                                    ==========================================================

                                                                    I understand that you are upset by our decision to take the Millennium

                                                                          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?

                                                                          Jman -140

                                                                                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?
