  1. Back when I was involved, 50/50 seemed pretty reasonable to me. If you have a good enough dog and they dont agree to your terms, find someone else. I know i few trainers today who charge 150-250 a week

    Heard Brendon Cole has brought a dairy farm. I dont know how accurate this rumour is.
  3. My understanding is one of them was Ethan Toomer whose father had a positive to meth a year ago and the other is Lisa Warentine. This is what I heard at the track last week anyway. No official confirmation yet
  4. See 3 people charged over 2 dogs proving positives to meth. Never ends it seems
  5. Another great news piece today!
  6. I wouldnt know anymore. Havent been in the industry for a long while now. Its just gutting to see an industry I grew up in and know many good people in be dragged through the mud. Worst part is anyone could have seen this coming from a mile away
  7. Exactly. And thats how McInerney refers to himself. A dog farmer. Anyone who has had any business with him wouldnt be surprised from these allegations. The real crime is grnz havent put their asses into gear and done something about this.
  8. Agh yes the photos totally looked fake
  9. Not even surprised. Grnz just buries its head in the sand and pretends like the industry is squeaky clean. Only a matter of time before this industry is gone... And if you think the other industries are squeeky clean, you will have another thing coming after greyhound racings finished

  11. I dont want to see the industry go but its on its last limbs. Maybe if alot of the corruption and problems was called out sooner, it may have been different. All i see is mistake after mistake by those in charge and is one of the reasons i along with many others will never be directly involved in the industry again
  12. Some people want to see the sport survive past next year. You know. That cut of point the industry has? I dont think anyones individual success or failures trump the industry. What good are my group 1 trophies if i can no longer enjoy the industry?
  13. 2 questions. what does the chief operating role do? This is no way an attack on Liz as shes a good person but what has Liz done to warrant being in this role? Shes a media presenter. This role seems out of her depth if it holds any real importance at all. Knowing the industry and people in it shouldnt be the only reason to get a role. Thats absurd
  14. If thats the boards interpretation, why is the rule not written as such? How absurd
  15. Yes, those figures were just a baseline with alot of variables. Those were just the numbers id go by personally. 15-30k does encompass all costs up until they start racing which isnt a bad number. Youd expect most litters to be capable of making back what you spent on them from the bitch being semenated to the dogs starting to race A dog making 12k a year is from a trainers perspective and can vary greatly. 12k a year for me covered all basic expenses of that said dog on a 50/50 deal. Saying that I'd still need a few dogs to make more to cover personal expensives etc as i
