The thing with racing is they almost always welcome the scum bags back with open arms. Everyone involved forgets about past transgressions and they are lauded as champions again. Will no doubt happen with the names mentioned in this thread too.

I,ve always thought Tim must know "something" about "someone", the way he scrapes thru so often.
And as Tiger says, sometimes its a bit obvious they skirt round the bigger names and hit the smaller ones.

So much for the mayor wanting to clean up the servers
Another pointless waste of space thread that’s already been done to death elsewhere

I think this saves space as we can place all our bad eggs here, instead of creating new ones.

This is the basket on the apple orchard for the rotten ones, all future rotten apples to be placed here.

Pointless thread, should go in the bin and then takes its greatest posters with it.

I thought tbv was for worthwhile contributors not to encourage rubbish like this.

There is another agenda happening here mods.

Isaac, doesn’t everything have agendas, especially on forums. But some people fully deserve to be named and shamed.

No specific agenda, but AA puts it well. It’s exposing the cheats to help our sport, not destroying it. The cheats will destroy it by eroding public confidence. That will drive them away and racing suffers.

I can only go back to the 70's, however, we had no social media back then, and as is now, most racing journo's didn't want to 'stab their mates' so would not go near a breaking story unless it was someone they didn't like.....much the same mow eh? the fat fella who was in on the disgusting Liam Prior episode, he's now back writing for that online rag......social media has given ordinary people a voice, some knowledgeable some not so much, but at least opinions are out there and it's kind of calling to account isn't it......don't cheat or be cruel to horses, then you wont have your name splashed all over social media....simples.
