    Some of us lemmings do forecasts and tricasts, so much to our detriment that we have to employ part time help to tabulate our winnings.

    It hasn't. A few have gotten all defensive on your behalf.

    I'll say what i think about how this thread is going

    one word..jealousy

    its very hard to fit in on here...as is shown with what G has achieved on this thread..and still he is made to feel like he is somehow pulling the wool over people's eyes

    tell you what Slim..if you f00k him off enough and he packs in it will do great damage to the board

    and yes i've made a few bob off this thread..but don't think for one minute i rely on anyone to pick my horses

    right is right..the guy is brilliant..get used to it...and cut him some slack eh

    If I knew you weren't a woman for certain I wouldn't believe it. Find me any post on this thread you have issue with and I'll back up exactly what I meant as opposed to what some have interpreted it as.

    Please a bit of sanity guys.

    I'm like EC and rarely rely on others to make my selections but when I see a guy like Gigolo pop up on a racing site I take notice. I've been doing this since early 2000 and I can split the wheat from the chaff very quickly and G is pure whole grain wheat.

    Nothing wrong with being a bit envious, I am, but I also know my limitations and the type of mostly low level races he bets in are simply not my forte

    So why not just let him continue with what he is doing and we can choose to learn something and profit or we can ignore him and those who applaud his acumen. Just would hate the guy to think this is another Betfair forum because in the main it is not.

    The hysteria is completely unnecessary and I'm at a loss why anyone thinks I have anything agsinst gigilo. No one is stopping him from doing what he is doing and it's the lads jumping down my throat that would not be out of place on the Betfair forum.

    Calling people lemmings who have a sincere admiration for this guy's skills is hardly endearing.

    What are Tom Segals followers known as on the betfair forum -Lemmings.It could easily be interpreted in a flattering way.

    I've used the phrase lemmings many times on this forum. Mostly to describe forum members who followed me on golf selections. It's a humorous term. I didn't realise people were so precious. You dont see me stamping my feet over the personnel attacks a few pages back and for good reason too, it's only words and it's only an Internet forum.

    I think you need to take a step back and calm down a little.

    Nice of you to stick up for your bud and you are one of those around here that make a lot of sense but if the Betfair forum is used as a positive example then good grief.
    The last from me on the subject, just hope G continues on and if not oh well it was good while it lasted.

    Exactly and if I post something which seems critical that's the sort of response I'm expecting or looking for. It's called banter and I got a great laugh out of your reply to my forecasts dig.

    Delicate subject. You have a way that can come across as a bit barbed or yes jealous but I'm sure it has mostly to do with youthful (younger than 30) exuberance. No skin off my nose personally cuz I'm a mean old junkyard dog on two legs whose bite is definitely bigger than his bark when need be.

    I've been around EC on numerous sites and he has some serious talent as someone who thinks on different planes but he has been known to spit the dummy a bit quickly every now and then. Hope he doesn't come in here now and blast me away
