I was just about to post the same Doc. Flicked on for a couple of secs and have turned off a couple of seconds later. In terms of presenting a greyhound show for television the quality of it is so poor it’s cringeworthy.  If it’s remit is about trying to generate turnover and encouraging people to bet then why not just show the races with betting shows without any personnel involved? I might watch then!

They obviously haven't got the required number of ethnic minorities/h'capped on the show so they fill it with
any woman in the UK who can correctly name the coloured jacket of at least 4 of the 6 trap numbers.

`darting' how can you possibly defend it. I can honestly say I am stunned. It is soul destroying this is allowed in TV. It will turn people away form the sport. I have never seen anything so bad in 40 years. If there was someone drunk or rude on the show it would be funny for a few minutes. This is soules dour crappp. No insight, no humour, no analysis, long faces, utter carp.

If Rose wants to be in media go into print - she will never make it on TV. The other girl I am sure is excellent around dogs but she is providing zero insight into anything. Its worse than car crash TV.

I still in favour of my suggestion off having a nice bird presenting with a few strategically placed trap numbers placed

And if that trap number wins you pull it off to revel everything

Just think of the incentive to prepare a level track with no bias

So it's a win win situation Laugh

Shortage of runners casemoney. It's the lead story in the RP today.
Report sparrow June 8, 2018 10:24 PM BST
Hove have cancelled racing for the next three Saturdays.

New stadiums controller Ian Smyth said: “We are doing so on welfare grounds due to a shortage of runners. We are already under pressure with a low kennel strength, a large number of bitches are in season, as happens at this time of the year, and of course we have had the situation with Claude Gardiner.

“It is very sad that he lost a dog through illness. We are awaiting the post mortem, though the provisional diagnosis suggests that it is that it is a case of pneumonia. The other two dogs affected are apparently showing signs of recovery, and hopefully we are over the worst.

“The best solution seemed to be to cancel the three Saturdays and compensate anybody who has booked. I am aware that we have had too many five-dog races recently, and I am working on long term solutions to increase our kennel strength. In the meantime, this should buy us some breathing space.”

The track are expected to announce the appointment of a new trainer in the near future.

I always watched the program with the mute button on but that's just the way I am, although I did actually look forward to the coverage of the open races and top graded races at the various tracks.

But since the rescheduling of the tracks early this year and along with the very poor quality of racing that is now shown I have rapidly lost interest, and recently given up watching at all.

I think that that they have more people in the studio than there are viewers these days.  It is a programme of poor quality presenters who sit alongside poor quality guests and watch poor quality greyhound racing - is it any surprise that people have turned off in their droves?
