Please all you horsemen and women, don't race without a valid contract, if you have to ship out of state, then please do so.  Don't settle for crumbs handed out to you mixed with contempt.  Develop some backbone, if you don't have any, FAKE it.................

Good idea, lets just settle for the neck and give the white meat to the track owners.  No use to fight, lets just give in again.  After all we lost last time, therefore that by definition makes us losers.  Losers never win..............  Lets raise the white flag of surrender.   Great thinking out of the box.

we didnt win last time we went on strike that is true ... we just wasted more time ... like they said before if you dont like it then race elsewhere ... there is nothing that can help IL right now .. when we get something from the riverboats ... or slots ... thats when the game will start looking better .... until then its gonna be at the slums the johnstons dont wanna do anything and the horseman sure cant find the right people to represent them to make things any better .. so how can you win its a no win situation .. if i was the pres of the ihha ... id make a difference .. id go into managment .. with a shotgun ... tell them make the contract right or else you die .. and id make sure everyone one of the johnstons were there .. i really dont care if i serve a lifetime in prison i atleast know the contract is signed and the horseman get their fair share of things ... but we havent had a pres who will put his future on the line to make things right .. its been nothing but pay offs.. and short end deals for the horseman .. i know im not in my right mind .... but tell me who is?!?!?!   we mine as well have dirty dave as are pres.  he would atleast piss on thier carpets and burn holes in their leather chairs .. and call them dirty cocksuckers and probably run them up the wall so fast that they would agree on anything because the stench is so bad!!   DIRTY DAVE FOR PRES!!!!!!!!

Think outside the box!
You've given up already.
Do something different.
Heede says in another thread their trying to do just that.
Let's hope it's for real?

I am not entering if there is no contract and I will go some place else.  Drivers shouldn't even think of going on the track. They want to take the bike insurance away.  Take the coffee away from the kitchen.  I don't even drink the crap but good grief I am sure that coffee is breaking the Johnsons.  Like I said before fix all the damn water leaks and you could save enought to build a new barn.

Difficult to explain to the horsemen/horsewomen that racing for crumbs is suicide.  Akin to attempting to describe how lobster tastes with a good bottle of chardonnay to a person accustomed to hamburger and Boone's Farm.

If the horsemen didn't win the last strike, ask yourself this, "Why won't the Johnston's offer the horsemen the same deal as they've had?"  Face it, Bobby S. you have no idea what you're talking about.  The horsemen did very well on the last contract!!!!!!

Maybe that was your solution, but horsemen stuck together and got management to sign a contract that they now will not offer to the horsemen.

Please don't boycott the box. I'm need action 7 days a week. Race for anything you can get. I'm a sick gambler like Edwardwilliam and don't want to see a strike.

in a way we still never got anything great outa the contract .. so we didnt win ... thats where your wrong! if we won ... recapture is dropped ... purses are up .. and everything is just peachy! but instead we are racing for peanuts which doesnt really matter right now because we should be use to getting thrown a bone every now n then cause the gov. *** us .. the johnstons *** us ... just keeps getting better

dont blame it just on the ihha .. blame it on everyone then and who ever signed to let marty in the ihha in the first place .. hes scum!    and i dont care that he asked my father why i called him that and he said o he loves me and he is just joking around .. *** that ... your just another brown nose .. who probably wouldnt help his own mother get across the street muchless actually do something productive for the horseman.. .. but thats just my opinion .. im probably wrong .. but who hasnt been wrong b4
