The best forum name that hasn't been used (as far as I know) for a betting Baggie fan would be InPasturesGreen. It's the club anthem and the betting connection is obvious.

Laugh i remember that obeone one. there were some hilarious threads back in the day, of people tipping spectacularly bad selections or advocating idiotic tactics, which inevitably went t i t s up. o dwyer was another one, prone to getting very heated about it, iirc

That Obeone thread was hilarious as it got updated when the goals kept flying in. About halfway through he disappeared in a puff of smoke posting that has confidently smoking an 11" Cuban cigar and never heard from again. My favourite post was something along the lines of "So unlucky Obeone, that last goal killed you mate."
