Perhaps it is he who is laughing.



I think he more has the early-1980s Iron Duke version than anything good.

He could be singing about it tonight!

iheart is far more than Limbaugh or talk.



Limbaugh and Hannity have been keeping
iHeart afloat for the last couple of years.
iHeart owns outright over 800 radio stations,
and radio is not doing well. The internet is
taking the advertisers away, but there are
just as many listeners and more listeners
than ever before. But advertisers want to
pay less and less, not more and more.

Limbaugh and Hannity will end up somewhere,
they have 10's of millions of listeners. IHeart
just got too big to sustain itself.

I mostly ban spammers, without hesitation and without announcing it, and let everything else run its course.



Nice to see you around again, JB.

Would adding DDB-Deuces Wild be a huge effort to add to the strategy maker/analyzer? I have been trying to do some calculations for it with the deuces hand analyzer. But obviously not ideal.

It is also podcasting, Pandora, and lots of other stuff. I have heard that the one thing really propping radio up now is that the median age of a US Car is around 11 years old, too old to have Bluetooth. As the fleet turns over, more and more people will turn away. I listen more to podcasts than radio, 10-1 or more. 1/10 the time wasted on commercials. Pick what you like to listen to, when you want. Several are total indies, working from their home, with an audience than makes it feel like a neighborhood.

Limbaugh and Hannity can go until they want to retire. But there will not be a "next generation." Radio is over.

Leykis gave up radio 5 years ago
and does the net now. He claims
to be much happier with this
setup.

What still cracks me up is he laughed at that idea in 1997. Sure, a long time ago, but still wish I had the clip.

In 1995 Bill Gates scoffed when told
that one day a McD's TV commercial
would have a URL at the bottom of
the ad. He tells that story a lot now
to demonstrate how nobody knows
what's coming, not even him.

People with low incomes have only themselves to blame. Most of them are lazy sob's anyway.

Most of these advantage players fall into the same category, unless they also work like I do. It's not a stretch that those of them who claim they're "professionals" or "make a living gambling" play only table games, bet sports and/or play live poker, also ignore tax filings, and take glee in their government supplied food stamps, medicaid, and welfare payments without ever bringing these up.

Machine players can't get away with it, by virtue of the $1200 tax slip guidelines, unless they have no families, no responsibilities, and no shame to go along with their gambling habit.

.

Proclaiming oneself a professional gambler on an internet forum is a far cry from filing as one. Most gamblers who aren't inundated with w2g firms don't file unless the welfare system requires them to. That way, under the auspicious cover of anonymity, they can boast of winnings, "professionalism", and a whirlwind lifestyle, all while pretending that the +ev is their friend to the end.

No one ever requests proof, because everyone wants it to be true.

The taxman would score big if he ever infiltrated the "professional gamblers" circuit.



None of this is directed at a particular forum member, even in context, so I don't believe it is a personal insult under the rules.

OTOH, these and several other posts demonstrate a fair amount of ignorance about the profession as many here practice it and a general tendency to offend rather than argue his viewpoint . Feel free to ignore this person, as it seems likely he will soon be departing for trolling.
