The Betting Thread

$200 on crows line bet

24.5 points start seem good now

What’s TIPPA paying for Coleman

Just need 8 disposals from Mundy in the last, 6 from Ryan and 2 from Boak.

All while maintaining the margin, let’s do this.

Good luck! I had a similar multi a few months back. All were on track and all I needed was Brayshaw to have over 20 disposals. I checked at half time and he was on 3…(finished with 17).

OK, I’ll be the spoilsport, but in a lockdown with people out of work and at home as a result, is it really responsible to be encouraging gambling. If you want to pee your $s up against the wall to line the pockets of parasites that’s your call, presumably you can afford it, but don’t promote it during a crisis.

I got Parish @ $67 for the Brownlow. Hope he keeps this magnificent form up.

I put $100 on Shiel for the Brownlow early last year when he was one the the early favorites and the next game he got injured and was out for an extended time. Because I think I might have jinxed him I will never put a Brownlow bet on another Bombers player again.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that I’m 99.9% sure that you didn’t have any impact on his injury. But there is that .1% just nagging away at me.

The only time I have ever cheered Zaharakis on for a cheap kick.

Needed 20, ended up with 19.

What did you do?

Unfortunately the common sense thing being North!

When eagles slotted two and went in front, I was reduced to nothing. Then north got the nose back in front and I’m like stuff this haha

Still a win though!

Onto the Bombers 40+ @ 3.50 haha

I’m very disappointed there’s a betting thread on this site. We criticise the club for having pokies, but we have a ■■■■■■■ betting thread.

Like all the threads on the site, you don’t have to participate. Do we close the Beer and Spirits threads also?

I’m a compassionate person, I can understand both sides of this argument, however as mentioned above, I figure it’s an open forum where we can discuss a range of topics good, bad & ugly with members able to choose whether they want to participate or not.

It’s all a bit of entertainment at the end of the day, that’s my approach. I’m not promoting it, it’s just a thread to keep the comments from clogging up the other threads as obviously there are problem gamblers etc.

Hope this makes sense and sorry if this has offended anyone.
