A waste of time now.
Bags, why change the rules in the middle of a season? And another thing- why revamp the darkhorse rules too? Doing this makes the show so friggen transparent!

A waste of time now.

Friday's show devoted to the fans race picks have been and always will be a waste of time. Does anyone else care who the fans thinks will win? It's lousy radio, not compelling or interesting in any way. And if you think I'm wrong on this, just try calling into Moody's show on Friday and give him your race picks. He will tell you the exact same thing.

Moody, tells it like it is! :yesshake:

Most of the people that call in are regulars and pretty much make the same picks each week anyhow.

Excellent point. I rarely listen to TMD on Friday's because of the race pick calls. NO ONE CARES.

Someone cares, or you wouldn't be without rep points :p

Just because you don't care doesn't mean others don't. It's a radio show on racing, it's not world peace or global warming. If they want to change the rules it's fine by me.

As a matter of fact, I welcome the Bagman to come on here and post the new rules so they can be stickied for all to see :)

First of all, Im not changing any of the rules, except to start keeping standings, something that wasnt donein the past. This will coincide with the resetting of our fantasy standings, something that has been done mid-season since I have been on the show, and before me.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of race picks either. But, it's something that Poole started and we will stay with (at least for now) out of respect for him.

I miss DP's reaction to some of the picks. I honestly think some people would pick someone deliberately to raise his ire.

I would love hearing the pulling of the pants when someone would pick someone outlandish as a darkhorse.
