pic suppliers ahead of the masses...

-------------------------------------

so Mr.HUnt...

are you now suggesting the lads in vans at racecourses are taking advantage of the following :-

a) using the raw feed which is at their fingertips on a daily basis

b) taking advantage of seeing every possible camera angle whilst LV players on here are given some very iffy camera angles at times

c) taking advantage of seeing almost immediately the photo finish print (even if it does or doesn't have the lines drawn on it by the judge) ?

or am i getting the picture badly wrong by what you said above ?

- if BF tried to ban software (as I believe they tried in the early days) there are plenty of third-party tools out there to automate interactions with websites, and they'd just end up with the website thrashed by people with a hundred markets open and software hitting 'refresh' ten times a second
