    Treasurer Scott Morrison says to forget about relying on the age pension

    Finally we have someone with the foresight and fortitude to speak about the aged pension farce. About 10% or $41 billion of government expenditure is spent on the aged pension. Unfortunately, often through incompetent personal financial management, many elder Australians - including my four...

    Tassie's betting thread

    These threads usually go on until it's clear people like me will just lose and won't make back our losses. So that's what we'll do here. When it's evident things are irreversible I'll just sail into the sunset pretending this thread never happened. Cricket 1u England to defeat West Indies 2nd...

    Cricket Summer betting thread - India, Tri-series, World Cup

    1st Test 1u Pujara H2H V Watson @ $2.10 (Palmer/Sportingbet). Pujara will finish as much better Test player than Watson. He had a dreadful time in New Zealand and England, but I think his technique is fine to cope outside India. Watson is also back from injury and his form over the last two...

    Experiences with tipping/ratings services

    Almost every punter under 40 would have some idea about the growing phenomenon of 'tipping' services for both horse racing and sports. As anyone with some idea about gambling would know, it is incredibly difficult to sustain any sort of long-term edge over the bookies; if you do, they'll likely...

    Matchbook - Serious (sport) competition for Betfair and even Pinaccle?

    Has anyone come across Matchbook? It's an exchange under new ownership, but with only 1% commission, in comparison with Betfair's 5%. It appears to heavily focus on North American markets, but there are also markets on NRL and AFL. NBA lines are $1.98 - or effectively $1.97 minus commission...

    2014 cricket winter

    There may be a few contributors in this thread every month or so I thought I'd put it up. When I have the time I'll see if anything internationally interests me. England tour of the West Indies Both sides aren't at full strength but I rate England's squad far higher than the Windies and I...

    2013/14 Australian cricket summer - Domestic, Ashes and all that

    The Champions League and Ryobi Cup are both underway. The Ashes to come. Will be looking for some value this summer. For today in the NSW - Tas game, Smith was $7.02 to top score. Bookies can be a bit slow on the uptake sometimes. 0.5u Bailey to score @ $5. Tasmania's best batsman. Overs...

    Universal Love Thanks to every EFC player

    As this torturous season comes to a conclusion, I'd like to get the chance to thank the players for not only their resilience, but their on-field performance - our best since 2013. A remarkable effort. As a club we are only going to get bigger and stronger. #WeAreEssendon

    AFL Autopsy V Collingwood - the good, the bad, and the ugly, Rd 19 2013

    Try to be positive but have a vent if need be. I thought Ryder battled well. Heppell was more than serviceable, though some of his disposals let him down. The skipper got through with 31 disposals but didn't have a major influence. Myers had a decent outing too.

    AFL Autopsy v Port Adelaide (30 point victory - 40,817), Rd 15 2013

    Fantastic win in the circumstances. Shame about Watson. And Carslile and Stants were injured but should be Okish (new word I know). Keep it civil and all that. Have fun :)
