Re: TV Discussion Thread

Game of Thrones finale Whatever happens tonight and whatever side you're on, the finale will still p*ss off alot of people. If they kill Dany, people will be p*ssed off. If they don't kill her, people will still be p*ssed off. Dumb & Dumber AKA David & Dan really ruined her character like Rian John...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Not my year when there was a pass interference that wasn't called in an NFC championship game, a horse I picked to win the Kentucky Derby gets disqualified for the first time in its 145-year history, and the horse I didn't want to see win because he was the horse who got impeded by running close to ...

Re: Positive Outcomes From The Derby

It made me stop gambling. That's the main positive I got out of it. I was actually going to give up on the sport when Barbaro broke down in 2006. It took me another 13 years and some bad luck this year with betting to finally make me realize enough is enough. My horse racing fandom finally died yest...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

If Tony Stark was known as a war profiteer earlier on, all The Sport of Kings is to me is horse profiteering. Phar Lap. Alydar. Exceller. Ferdinand. Those are the only names I can think about when I want to be sick to my stomach on what happened to them. And those are the more famous ones. It happen...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I will always love the horses in my signature and will cherish memories of several other horses not listed. But I'm done with horse racing with or without the disqualification today. When I had to deal with the most controversial NFC championship and then the first DQ in Kentucky Derby history 3.5 m...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

https://youtu.be/-jwy9m9oDg0 ^ After watching this replay, it was the right decision. But I no longer care about the sport. It's still animal cruelty especially for the lower ranks that get sent to slaughterhouses. It's no better than greyhound racing and even cock fighting. Watch Maximum Security w...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

Bill Mott objected for a different horse that affected that horse and not his. If he just STFU about it, alot of people today would be cashing in on a winning ticket. I already deleted all my photo albums, videos, and books related to horse racing. They're not really deleted because they can still b...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

From nailing the winner to becoming the most controversial Kentucky Derby decision of all-time. I actually rewatched a little of it on YouTube when Max swung to his left and I still call it BS. It happened in the first turn!

I won't look at Bill Mott the same way ever again..

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I have money on the Milwaukee Bucks to win the NBA championship this June and I bet I will lose that one too because the refs are going to favor the Golden State Warriors because they're the bigger market team. I had a bet that had the Super Bowl being Patriots vs Saints, and they had to rob me ther...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I'm done with horse racing. Second time I got robbed from these "officials" this year. I had money on the Saints over the Rams and they didn't call pass interference. But in a race where Max didn't interfere with a 65-1 longshot, here they did. This result pretty much is telling me never to bet on s...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

I'm officially done with horse racing but for a different reason. It really is animal cruelty. Most of these horses are going to get sent to a slaughterhouse or simply die at the track. The PETA kooks were right all along. I'm not going to watch the Kentucky Derby anymore. Don't care about the Preak...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I love it! Beautiful! #7 strikes again! Glad I was wrong there and he just wired the field.

Maximum Security made more money for me than Justify already.

Next year, I'll be very quiet with my pick until the final minutes before post. Wooo-hoooo!

Re: Kentucky Derby Selections

My final pick was my initial pick all along - Improbable Final Top 5 1. Improbable 2. Maximum Security 3. Vekoma 4. Tacitus 5.

Re: Kentucky Derby Top 5

The more I thought about it, the more I believe my OG pick of Improbable will win this race. He's not as fast as Max but he's more proven and has more proven connections. - Bob Baffert - Highest Brisnet speed fig in the slop - Better competition - Win at Churchill - Workouts were in Churchill and ar...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Derby

I always felt Roadster was the weakest link of the Baffert trio. I just didn't realize I had the best Baffert horse all along. Procrastinators at the half-mile haven't won the Kentucky Derby since 2013. I believe this Baffert horse is ready to rock-n-roll today. https://youtu.be/5kNzsU0usMA Not exac...
