  17. Poor 'results' is what I see.... I don't know the bloke but I come from Tassie, and they now call it 'The Killing Fields" I disagree this is keeping Tassie racing going. This is possibly destroying it. ? Because you couldn't possibly support runners in these races , so punting must be minimal and public interest even less....

They will be last big man standing and will simply rule over any clubs that can survive in what ever shape that may be . But many of the big players left seem happy with the scenario playing out so they will h
