    I like Maple Jack... but too short to do.

    It has nothing to do with any sort of non existent hierarchy. It is simply that I have literally never seen you post anything on here that remotely suggests you're knowledgeable about the sport. But perhaps you're just keeping it to yourself.

    This is not a criticism of you, you do not know what you're talking about. What you have said is generally the attitude that I would expect from someone with little knowledge of racing in general. People like to bet on the Grand National in particular as it is a spectacle, a tradition that doesn't warrant its hype, but they do not like the consequences of such a race. Quite simply if you have a passion for the welfare of the racehorses not only should you turn your TV off, you should not be betting on the race for your own entertainment. For everyone else it is about the only race that still gets advertised and talked about in the mainstream media, so sure, jump on that hype train. Now in fairness it is not even the race that is the problem, it is the course. Since the changes there have been less deaths in that particular race (but I am pretty sure a number of the runners have been destroyed as a consequence the race, its just not widely reported or talked about), but still just as many deaths if not more, in the other races using the Grand National Course. I would think in the future that if they are to take their head out of their arses and forget about the tradition, they should look to severely reduce the amount of runners in all of the races over that course. Personally I just dislike the race as it is a mugs race. You're getting terrible value on basically anything you bet on. Its not a race for horse racing enthusiasts.

    You can't both bet on the race and condemn it at the same time by refusing to watch it. That is like supporting Liverpool and Manchester United.

    Yeah, just watched it again. Theres another closer to the start of the race that looked like it probably had a fatal fall, but they panned away from it super quickly so it may have got back up. Aside from that most of the fallers got back up fine. I think Robbie Power is alright too, he took a heck of a kicking though.

    Yes I don't know which one it was but you could see the horses leg dangling.

    I don't think it is confirmed just yet, but I would say one of McManus' definitely died. Snapped one of its hind legs.

    Robbie Power just got a real good kicking, looked nasty.

    I hope the ground has been watered at least as there are a few too many fast horses in this race, alongside the prior changes speeding the race up, it could be absolute carnage.

    Messages on my phone from 8 different people asking about what I think will win the National. Feck off, I have not even looked at the race once. Only window licking retards get excited for this piece of shit garbage betting race.

    RIP DMX

    Personally I think as he was such a great man, we should at the very minimum get a week to mourn his passing. All jokes aside. Beyond the fact that Prince Phillip was prone to saying things that he probably shouldn't have (although even in that regard it is worth taking into consideration that many of those things said were said in a completely different era to present day), he has actually accomplished a great many of things in his life. Positive contributions to society. The DoE Youth Awards and his work in conservation being notable examples.

    At least the other one will probably give me a day off work.
