from Queensland wrote to me "I'm not into, and never will be into, computers,
Internet, CD-ROM's or whatever. So "Racing Pays More" was a disappointment
to me, containing nothing of real interest. Note this is simply my view of your
publication, I'm sure the "younger brigade", would have found it of
Pays More does focus heavily on punting today, and I am sure all readers would
agree with me that the Internet and Internet betting, has revolutionized betting
and Racing. Racing Pays More helps you sort out how to bet efficiently, either
with bookmakers by phone or on the Internet. Here's what I wrote back to Bob.
to hear your views especially as the information as simple as Plan A, can make
you money and is worth the price of the book alone. The Parlay plan, which does
not need a computer, made several of our members over $700 last weekend. Your
view that the book is a "disappointment" reflects your status as a
"dinosaur" and as such, out of touch with the real world. What are
you going to do when the Sportsman and like publications, exist only on the
internet, and I can assure you that this will happen sooner rather than later?
We have over
2,500 Members and more than half of these are your vintage or later but the
majority of these now access their racing information and do all their betting
on the Internet. I wouldn't be surprised if you are silly enough to bet exclusively
with the TAB. If so you are like a lamb being led to the slaughter.
Wake up Bob,
before it's too late.
To help you
keep up with developments and other people's views, I will be sending you the
Winform Newsletter (normally $99).
I wish you
well in your future punting, and by the way, when your health deteriorates,
as it will for all of us, I wonder if you are going to insist that your doctors
put you out with Chloroform in a non air conditioned operating theatre with
nurses who have not kept up with technology. After all, progress is the enemy.
Think about it. Do you still start your car with a crank handle?
is any other comment necessary?
