The people who program race times: Do they have any consideration for punters?
Tomorrow there are only two venues. One would think it would be easy to spread the races so there is plenty of time in between. But no, we have races 5 minutes apart (4 times) and gaps of 25, 30, and 35 minutes of no action between races. We all know what happens when there is a delay at a venue and we end up with races going off at the same time and being unable to get a bet on if waiting for a result to be known. As they say: It’s not rocket science, but I think they deserve a rocket to get their brains functioning. Also, TABs and the governments are probably missing out on revenue because punters don’t get their bets on if races overlap.
If the programmers can’t manage the job and find it too complicated, I’d be willing to do it for them if paid the same salaries.
What do you reckon?
Simply too hard to get it right especially when race meetings get transferred or ACCIDENTS happen etc.
