Re(2): Here's the Solution for MC...

Can you say with certainty that Dania would keep having "real" jai alai if they didn't need it to have slot machines? I don't have that certainty so I guess, by your reasoning, I shouldn't support or respect Dania. Don't worry I am being facetious. I will respect Dania above all others and support it until the last game is played there.

Tommy T is 100% right. If you don't like MC then don't get on a MC thread and carp about it. The posters who got on the "Caraballo" thread to complain got on the thread knowing it was about MC, why if you despise it so. Now you even have a poster on a Dania thread (Dania weekly results) getting on to diss MC and then say he doesn't watch Dania because of the video quality. Unbelievable!

Tommy T makes the argument that to some watching MC is enjoyable and not just for moneymaking purposes. I fall into that category. It has been interesting to see the progress of the players and the playing strategy of the game itself. It is not the same as jai alai at Dania that is quite self evident. At my local horse track every fall they have certain days in which they have a couple of quarter horse races at the end of the thoroughbred card. They are not even a quarter of a mile long races and the horses are not even pure thoroughbreds. And yet you don't have people walking around crying that the races should be five furlongs or more and the horses aren't 100% thoroughbreds. No, they are heavily bet on and people cram the rails to see the muscled up brutes blast through the stretch at a breakneck pace. They are just a different type of race and don't need to be compared to regular thoroughbred races to be enjoyed. I have actually seen people watch and enjoy standardbreds pulling carts and dogs racing, can you imagine that? If you despise MC so much just stay off the threads and remember it ends at the end of November and you will have 7 straight months of Dania to not comment on.
