nascar attendance has fallen dramatically since the mid 2000's.

are they down because of integrity issues as some claim in harness racing ?
are they down because fo teams hendrick and childress ?  there are those that say similar teams in racing like burke and takter people claim have ruined racing.

the answer is no.
nascar like hhorse racing and the rest of the economy suffered from the recession.exposing bad business models who were overextended.
Well said.
But Niatross you've got to understand that many here don't know much about business models etc;
Unless you consider collecting bottles and cans to get paid for the $.05 return is a business.

I thought it only happened to me!  doh


Thing is Burton, often you'll see a ML chalk who looks strong but is 5-1 a minute before, drops to 3-1.  You've got him pegged at 6-5 but you know the smart money knows there's something wrong.  Now you have to readjust your total thinking (odds wise).  When this happens at YR lets say, the smart money is rarely wrong.  Maybe at Tioga he's gonna go 3-5 at the start.

The end result of these drastic movements after the start may find your 6-1 at just that price after being 7-2 going to the gate.  So determining your "value" can be futile.  bang head

Many times I have the race narrowed to 2 and will bet the higher priced one only to see it reverse after the start.  dunno
I see your point.
I guess it doesn't effect me as much because I play the big tracks with the big pools so that doesn't happen as much with my wagers.

Maybe Nascar and harness racing should have a joint bake sale to save themselves!!   laughing guy

This is an interesting story on how Durkin got his start. He idolized Phil Georgeff and Arlington unknowingly helped Durkin.

No smear here.  Blah, blah, blah from you though.

The Washington Post picked up this poll as well, so Terry, even though you attempted to make a mockery of me, it is being taken seriously by serious journalists.

Have any of those serious journalists tried to claim it shows anything like "the radicals are the majority" or that the poll demonstrates Muslim extremism?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2014/08/27/do-1-in-6-french-citizens-really-support-islamic-state/

Well, what do you know, just as I suspected, they did not, which one could probably have guessed from the way they changed the headline about 1 in 6 to a question. And furthermore the premise of this self-same WP story you brought here to support your point is summed up in their sentence, "But really, is it possible that more than 1 in 6 people in France could "back" Islamic State? When you look at the numbers closely, something doesn't add up." After which they go on to show what they think is wrong with this poll, ending up at, "But the idea that the entire Muslim communities of France and the United Kingdom (and then some of the non-Muslim community also) supports Islamic State makes no sense."

Did you actually read the story, Dolfan? It really doesn't support your case, you know.

Quote
The proof behind my OPINION on Muslim extremism and it's "majority" on their view on terrorism can be found in the 2006 Palestinian elections which was decidedly won by Hamas, the group who has been on all legitimate terrorist lists for many, many years.

That election unquestionably proved who the Muslim MAJORITY wanted in control - a terrorist organization.  It proved to be a failure in the West Bank because the international funding dried up quickly but the people of Islam made it clear that they were choosing terrorism over peace.

 doh

It always ends up at the same old place, doesn't it? Derailing any possible political topic back around to your personal hatred of Palestinians.

But hey Dolfan this thread is about ISIS and who supports that, and guess what ... up in that top story you posted, the original one with the two polls, where one was by a Palestinian organization polling residents of Gaza? 85% of them opposed ISIS, and only 13% supported. (The other 2% mute, apparently). So what conclusion can we derive from that? I guess if what Gazans happen to think on one subject is indicative of what THE MAJORITY of Muslims think, then we must conclude that at least 85% of all Muslims  oppose ISIS, too. Right? 85%? A majority? It's your own logic, Dolfan ... you have to own it.

Or could it be just possible that your broad brush approach to PROVING what all Muslims believe based on what one small group might think about one specific subject might be flawed?

Quote
These FACTS cannot be denied.

The only facts in evidence are the numbers in the poll. Nothing else. Any meaning attached to them by you or anyone else ... just hot air.

Terry, if you are an anti-semite just admit your bigotry and the rest of us can just ignore you.

Oh brother, here we go again, trotting out the old anti-Semite bullshit. You always come back to this, too.

When was anyone besides you discussing anything like that in this thread? The thread is about ISIS, and a poll that was taken in Europe about ISIS. They're fighting in Iraq, and Syria I have heard. No one had anything at all to say about Israel, or Jews. But you manage to insert that into every single possible political topic, somehow.

Quote
If you are not a Muslim apologist or an anti-semite please let us know that too.

If you are a paid operative for AIPAC or some such organization, taking money to try and transform every single f***ing political thread on the forum to this same tired old propaganda and hatred, please let us know.

that is the price we pay for simulcasting.
another reason i try to play tracks with larger pools in both breeds.low handle = huge lat swings in the odds at the last minute.
