    Excellent blog, Steve. Have really enjoyed reading the ups and downs of sports betting. Has helped me change the way I got about things, even for someone like me who does their own race form (rarely bet sports). Good luck with the new venture and I hope they live up to their promise.

    Thanks Tim,
    It’s been a crazy 4 years. Glad I helped in some way.

    I had my first child 4 months ago and totally understand where you are coming from. Good luck with your new venture. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this blog for the last couple of years.

    If you dedicate yourself to your baby the way you have to your betting trials and tribulations you are going to be one hell of a father.

    All the best

    Good luck with everything! Thanks God I am not married nor have a girlfriend. I can punt all I want. LOL. Is this new bookmaker Palmer?

  5. Steve says:

    Congrats Scott and thanks for the kind words.

  6. Steve says:

    hahaha Chris,
    I will miss the travels for the next few years, that’s for sure. I will continue punting as well as it takes up very little time, but will have an extra set of eyes on all the sport I’ll be watching.

    No, Palmerbet is on par with all the other current books, they limit and don’t accept bets.

    So sorry to see you go Steve but I completely understand why – it can be a very rough ride as you well know & now is the right time for some financial stability. But…I will greatly miss my weekly dose of Daily25, ur rants & raves & ur guts in achieving something many of us are still trying to make happen. You felt like a good friend as many people don’t get this pastime, so I could instantly identify with all your ups & downs, doubts & satisfactions, enjoyment & stress!! Good luck with the new job & new family mate. Take care.

  9. Steve says:

    wow thanks Barry. I’m very lucky that I have a few friends doing the same thing, but your right that not many people understand this as a viable alternative.

    Sorry to see this end. Thanks for the writing up to now.
    Any possibility of doing a monthly blog instead?

  11. Steve says:

    Honestly guys, thanks so much for all the love today, I felt pretty bad that you were all so generous in your comments, was really hoping one of you would destroy me. Just makes me really happy to know I have some very thoughtful and respectful readers. Us gambling types aren’t all bad after all.

    Aside from the April Fools joke I definitely identify with friends / people not getting this pastime. I have tried mentioning it to people and get the look of “never had you down as a cider drinking dropout hanging round bookies backing dead certs”… Find it useful hearing / sharing experiences with other like minded souls especially when hitting bad days / weeks etc

    It helps that I’ve made my friends a fair bit of money with the sign up offers and showing them how to take advantage of all the free offers. The profits also help. Family are a little harder to talk to about it.
