    Rick, for whatever reason thinks that the only way you can comment, post or discuss here with credibility is if you have played on the table with him or you tried out the target zone detector in his presence at Harley's formerly foreclosed house. Otherwise, you can't post here. I'm not selling anything. I'm not promoting anything. I'm not part of any "click" or posse. I play for fun. If people choose to read my posts and comment, disagree, agree, believe or not believe or get a chuckle...great. Rick seems to involve himself outside of this board with nonsense people that agitate him. Cut and run.

    I don't know, but Im willing to bet the majority of bus people are slot players. At least the busses my wife used to take to Atlantic city.
    Once a local or closer place opens, I don't think it makes much difference to slot players as long as there are new machines and giveaways, comps.
    One would think some casino that lost tons of slot business to a locally run casino, would announce they are tuning down their take on slots, increase it 2 % for the players, to lure players back in.
    Im sometimes amazed when travelling, in the middle of nowhere, how many slot players there are in any given shithole casino while all the table game seats are vacant.

    while at the sands this past few days, my wife and I walk, and we walked around the property a few times, the bus depot section in sands was active, but not as active as I remember it just 5 years ago when there always seemed to be a ton of busses parked in the back in the bus lot.

    Liman, you are probably right.

    There must be a fixed number of gamblers that all casinos are fighting for. They are all getting a smaller piece of the pie.

    Your comment that slot players are not loyal and will probably find the closest machines possible made sense.

    For now the NY racinos slots seem to be fairly loose. Not sure if this was to really take the AC and Mohegan Sun gamblers away, or if NY regulations stipulate better odds.

    Superrick, I like to stay neutral. Think Switzerland.

    I love people and get along with with just about everyone. I'm not going to get involved with your arguments with others .. That's your business.

    On a lighter side......you seem to be becoming obsessed with my balls. Thanks for your interest, they are quite nice .

    Nice Corvette!

    Yes, I enjoy the bantering back and forth and the occasional bits and pieces of craps play and experiences....however I have to say that Knight's quote is terrible. I never did like Knight's antics on the sidelines so it doesn't surprise me that he said something like that. Personally, I've never been raped but I know of women that have and I don't think anyone could ever enjoy it. Some quotes are better left buried...never to be repeated. Personally, I would consider another "all time favorite quote".

    I think that you have heard this before, but here we go again. When you say someone is a friend when someone is lying about your friend you speak out.

    I definitely agree with you and I keep forgetting the sarcasm emoticon. That was a ridiculous thing he said and if you noticed my next statement right after that quote I said you can imagine the chaos that caused. I apologize if it offended you, that wasn't my intention. For the record, my all time favorite quote is from Robert Woodruff, former president of the Coca-Cola Company when he stated “There is no limit to what a man can do or how far he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit.”

    no worries, no harm, no foul. I guess I'm just a tad bit sensitive. There's power in words and when strung together in a quote - they can pack a punch.

    I definitely understand and agree. I have edited the original post to denote sarcasm. Thank you for calling it to my attention. :)

    Give it up Dave, you're the one with the big mouth, now show the world how your dice bounce all over the place when they hit the table. Face the fact that I'm not the one trying to prove that there are DI's, that have listened to the great fiction writer, then went out and cleaned the casinos out like he claims to do.

    MP can't watch anything sitting behind his computer all day and night, when are you going to realise that he is a fiction, writer. Others have that is why his board is almost dead. Fiction only works for guys like you. That just happen to go to the casinos once a month or even less. They don't play enough to realize that they are being fed you nothing but fiction.

    We are all waiting on your video that will prove me wrong, without the dice barrel dice.

    Not much different than Harley's claims...yet I don't see you refuting that. You don't know MP...maybe he is cleaning them out like Harley supposedly does. I doubt either one is, but at least I'm consistent.

    Yup, like my hero Howard Cosell, telling it like it is, got a life, replying from Beautiful Biloxi. Playing as always with fair dice. Have you or Harley called Bill Gates yet to complain that Excel (Bone Tracker) is defective and biased???

    Yea, DeMango, when Irishsetter came up with the short bus crew I never even heard of a shot bus, so I assumed that he must have been one of those riders. So I went out and did a little research on the short buses that must have been used in California where the great stinky fingers lives, yes I gave him that name from all of those cigarettes he smokes!

    The Short Bus Crew


    I would like to take this time to thank our So-Called Expert from California for coming up with the name, I never knew what he was talking about as we did not have short buses when I went to school, but maybe he was riding them to school that’s how he knew about them. Now I am not saying that’s a bad thing after all I think you can learn off anybody.

    When I got the phone call I look up the short bus, I found out that they did a movie called “The Short Bus Crew” After reading about The Short Bus thing I had a good laugh, because I have a very open mind and had taught my children never to make fun of anybody and showed them you could learn something from anybody you just had to open your eyes!

    I use to go to the charter boat docks 5 days a week all my buddies where charter boat captains and I would fish on the weekends. They had a guy that would come down to the boats to go fishing, my buddies would take him out for nothing if they had room on the boat for him, he was a little bit slow . He had to live with his mother, and at the time was about 35 years old!

    There wasn’t one person on that dock that would make fun of him, and we all learned from him. Here was a guy that had nothing working for him, slow was an understatement. He was the happiest guy that you would ever meet he lived in his own world!

    When he showed up he had a way about him that would make everybody look on the bright side of things! He got a job working in one of the major grocery stores because they had a program to hire people like him he went on to live a productive life!

    It just goes to show you what happens when you give someone a chance to prove them self! I found out a long time ago that someone who try’s to insult others has a small mind.

    I try not to insult anybody and even in the thread Skeptics in the Craps The world, I only go after the facts that do not make any sense what so ever, I didn’t write them and anybody that plays craps all the time will tell you that things do not make sense when you read this fiction that the writer is trying to pass off as the real thing!

    After all insult are way too easy to come up with, so I will not waste my time with our So-Called expert from California. I also came across this when I was doing my research on the “Short Bus Crew” and thought it might be some interesting reading about one of the real short bus riders!

    Maybe the next time these so Called Experts are in town I will get to see them shoot, I put the word out to give me a call when any of the locals see them in the casinos!

    By the way my granddaughter has autism and my son and his wife caught it at around when she was a one year old, they had her in programs right from the start. I always tell them they are the best parents I've ever seen because of all the time they have spent with her, they have her in dance, karate, baseball, swimming, horseback riding and anything else that they can come up with to get her to be more social.

    She is now in the first grade and has been what they say is mainstreamed, she has gone through many test over her short years on this earth. Some of them have said that she is a genius. she reads in the top 3% of our nation.
    She is only six years old, and you can get her to read anything that she has never saw before, there is no hesitation when she is reading anything.

    People that make fun of other have a very low self esteem or are very jealous of what others are doing. All anybody has to do is to look at Irishsetter avatar to see that.

    Well Rick, I would never associate yourself that phrase. But you have an associate who makes up wild claims and theories about biased dice and now he insults Bill Gates, when he disparages Excell. I don't see you coming to his rescue, he has failed in many ways and can only insult his critics, he has never proved anything.
