It's ok he has never won so much money off a single horse as Air Force Blue the 3 times he has ran this year and finish 000

oh wait he has only ran twice this season, would not bother listening to what he says, just likes to be controversial on the tv

tbf banks never brought it up on the morning line - it was cunningham trying to score points with dodgy jockeys and trainers who first brought it up on the show.

banks just stood by what he had apparently previously said on social media.

The truth hurts, glad there are people like Geoff Banks who tell it like it is.
100% right about corruption with low paid jockeys, easy targets for drug dealers & wrong'uns to bribe.

Connecting corruption with depression was incredibly crass & sums the bloke up. I much prefer people to express an opinion but Jeff doesn't express opinions in an especially well thought out or polite manner. Like the day he was on and told Gordon Elliott his horse would not have won the Gold Cup if Cue Card hadn't fallen. That's not an intelligent or informed opinion, it's pure conjecture, but he was belligerent expressing it as always.

Cunningham was the one who started poking him with the stick asking him to apologise, if Banks would have done a u-turn on what he said previously he would be getting flak on here as well. Don't see what the problem is myself, but all about opinions.

The fact that people see Geoff Banks as "adding value" to the Morning Line just about sums up the decline Channel 4 has taken racing. Who the fook thinks we want the opinion of a bookie when analysing a race anyway? Especially this fame hungry coont that says controversial things just for the attention.

I'd sooner have Gok Wan sitting on that couch than this clown. The sooner we move to ITV and get rid of Banks etc the better, infuriating!

I had two £50 bets shortly after opening an account.  Neither were arbs.  Both probably beat SP, but then so do about 90% of bets.  Restricted to about a quid win after them and within 24 hours.  Try it for yourself - he's exactly like the rest of them, just with a slightly bigger mouth.

No question - I enjoy reading the often jealous nonsense from certain individuals on here. Were I to declare the sky blue- they'd call me all sorts of unpleasantries (under a cloak of cowardly anonymity) just because I forgot to mention it's cloudy too

And there's the idiots on here who think the 'public school' comment as anything other than tongue in cheek. Deliberate? well of course. Haven't you all heard enough sycophantic bullshit on your racing telly for Gods sake?

I don't expect people to always agree with what I say - but my job isn't to bore, it's to entertain, provoke, perhaps amuse. It's television. You'd do best to remember that. Fine if you object to comments to Elliott or Walsh - I need to kiss their backsides because you do? I'll say as I feel.

I remember the rants on here over the Sammy Jo Bell comment - the political correct wannabees on here as usual barking at an opportunity to rubbish someone for doing his best on live telly to make it a little more entertaining. Francome would have said it 5 times - but of course that's different

To those on here who have posted comments of the nature you don't mind opinions. I respect the sensibe views too and they don't have to be my own

As for FACCTS - well every time there's a forum on me - you pop up with your nastiness. Please get yourself laid. A life- anything

Good luck guys

I'm not on anyone's side for the record, don't know your family history apart from the carrot story your dad did once which I thought was brilliant and imo when you're on morning line (which I've taped for 30 years) you bring a different carrott to the table and make it interesting, defo need more characters on the morning line as it's got duller and duller as the years keep rolling on!!

For the record I used to always get up for it when Francome and Big mac was on, probably by default seen it about 5 times at the actual time since.

Just out of interest, what exactly is it people are meant to be jealous of and regarding the second part, is that the remit you were given or one you decided for yourself?

It's just that I personally would have thought a little honesty and talking a bit of common sense was quite important too, as boring as it might be and all that.
