    Us and Wire -22, and Huddersfield -6 as a treble is a very attractive price. I'm going with that.

    Sounds about right, I would like Hull KR to be nilled but its not easy to get 3 consecutive zeros.

    It might even get a mention on Sky if we do that.

    Do you ever wonder why you don't see poor bookmakers?
    Or why gamblers, who according to them win more than they lose are not living in mansions?

    Nip down to GA some night and listen to the stories of how many have lost their jobs, homes, wives, kids etc. I went to support someone I know a few years ago, it was heartbreaking.

    Yes it is but I think the lads above were just having a flutter on the rugby Rogues.

    I know, but some of those at that meeting were "only" having a flutter on football, I was gobsmacked and felt so sorry for them, moreso one young lady who had come to support her husband. Some of the stories were horrendous, borrowing and stealing from family and friends.

    What is worse now is that it's rammed down your throat in tv advertising. Kids are being brainwashed.

    Just the same at AA meetings. Lads that only went to the pub with their mates for a couple of shandies, but the majority of people drink without a having a problem. It's the same with gambling.

    Rogues, I enjoy reading your views on Wigan and Rugby League in general.
    You have a point on gambling reference damage it can do, advertisement and target group but for all that it is still legal.
    Words such as horrendous, stealing and borrowing are often used by gamblers and their loved ones.
    I think it may be better use of those words to aim at illegal drug users, dealers and Rugby clubs such as Wigan and St. Helens that allow players back into the game after such drug use. Young boys shot dead for less than a €200 debt that is then quadrupled and forced upon retired grieving grandparents who have to take a loan to pay the dealers. These boys who were drug runners for rugby players who enjoy "a bit of snow" or "devils dandruff" after a game.
    Until gambling is illegal it is better you aim your moral compass at our sports clubs and governing body because quite frankly a €5 bet on the outcome of a triple header pales into real insignificance.

    I love a bet; especially having given been up on the bookies down the years.

    Ive never really backed football nor RL that often. Bookies want punters to back thise because there is often so little value in the bet and if you want to make profit not loss, value is key.

    Same here, I don't bet for profit, I bet because I enjoy the buzz although I generally do ok with football (not so much RL).

    I don't need some self righteous knobhead telling me what I'm legally doing is wrong, especially when his hobbies include stalking young rugby players and posting a on website where he's almost universally disliked. F**k off you silly old inbred nonce.

    Yeah there is a buzz with doing your reasearch, finding your angle and it all coming together after you place your stake. It doesn’t even have to be big bucks just the satisfaction of a well placed punt.

    The moral righteousness of it all is bonkers and the arguments are crackers. By the same logic should we ban driving because some people drive too fast, or dog ownership because a small minority are irresponsible or cruel? Crackers.

    I think there are a lot more people out there with a secret gambling problem than you would think.

    You have to take a test before you can drive though.

    A former Rugby Union player came into our work on International mens day a couple of years ago and his story was horrific. He won a huge amount on a coupon and rather than put it away started to make higher bets before realising it had all gone. He then started to chase the money back and ended up with a massive debt, using savings and mortgage payments to try and chase further losses.

    I gamble a little but do so within my limits in what I am willing to lose as we probably all do on here. I hate the targeted advertising though and the little flashes of "gamble aware" don't go far enough to warn people of excesses.
