Steelco, I think what RS was wanting to see is the same thing that I was going to ask for. Can you keep a running total of how much you have wagered and a running total of how much you won. That way we can correlate it to a percentage. (ie. you bet a total of $50,000 and it returned $48,000 for a 96% return).

Thanks.



YTD, there was 28,666 wagered on favorites. 2,358 has been lost.
YTD, there was 25,200 wagered on dogs. 168 has been lost.

DRich, let me know if there is anything else that you want to see.

As we sit around with our thumbs up our...........because of the All-Star game, I would like to suggest some constructive changes to the NBA game. Very simple but would increase parity and revenue and remove a very dull game and time period.

First, and foremost, reduce the effect that officials have on the game. Change the rules so that fouls are less subjective. I'd much rather have more fouling happening without calls rather than leave it up to the whims of the officials. Fouls need to be obvious. Stop favoring the so-called "Stars". Doing this only creates a greater disparity between the top and bottom teams, which leads to less competitive games.

Second, drop the damn All-Star game. Nobody cares about it.

Thirdly, take the schedule from 82 games to 90 games. An increase of approximately 10% and give all players an automatic 10% boost to their salaries. Filling in the All-Star break. Creating a good deal more revenue.

Limit players to 30 minutes per game. This makes up for their playing more games (they'll end up playing the same number of minutes in total for the season), but more importantly it should bring about a bit more parity since a team would have to use their bench more. They could conceivably make up for lacking a great player with a better all around team.

Just some random thoughts on this game that needs to get more competitive and less subjective in determining winners. They can create parity.
