    And that sir is how you do it.
    Money in pocket.
    A few nice drinks.
    Benalla nice place.
    Used to know, but years now, a couple who lived in Benalla, and Collingwood people, used to drive to Melbourne for games and even club functions, events.
    Good people.

    Cracked my first beer at noon (heavy) and had a beer in my hand for the next 5 hours, went up to the TAC tent to get tested and blew 0.017 lol, i did eat a bit and i drink slow, and i'm a big dude, probably had 7 cans, then i got tested by the police on the way home and didn't even register, couldn't believe it.

    How is someone with so much knowledge on horse racing not be a betting man?

    Because it's never a bet.
    Always an investment :)

    Don't think you even know what you're talking about.
    Nor do you know about anybody's spending on beer, football, racing, IGA .....
    Better to leave the judgments for when you're not sober

    i know. Nothing wrong with betting on horses as long as you bet within your means. I have never had a bet on football and never will.

    Horse racing is a sport, you don't need to bet on it to enjoy it.

    I have never known anyone that bets within their means. You might start throwing 20c coins playing Manila at the deli.. yrs down the track your blowing your bags playing $5/10s at the cas. Those who spend prolonged periods gambling eventually do their nuts. Particularly folk who have a keen interest in it.

    Ok.. honestly.. find me someone who enjoys it as a sport who can place $5 bets here and there for decades.. eventually the itch to lay monster bets becomes far too difficult to resist. I lost a mate mine from a gambling addiction. So I'm definitely not one to promote it.

    Lol, i've been following the sport for 35 years, i love it, i watch it even when i'm not betting, my normal bet is $5, but i will increase that if i'm on a roll, but $5 is the norm, big G1s i might spend $20 on and i'll spend $100 on the cup.

    Fair enough. Well sorry to intrude in this thread.. I just wanted to get my point across. Just dislike it.
