hey bake and madash!!  I just happened to check the forum tonight and i saw my name in your thread bake haha. I'm still betting and capping etc but i just haven't felt like posting.  It kinda felt like bad luck for me for some reason.  Probably that i was losing money consistently haha.  I hope you guys are well.  I'm still lurking around here and there.....

I hear ya.  I understand that play by play announcers work more than one sport but most have a long standing relationship (at the very least) with the sport that they are calling.  He's been around all american sports since he was a child which allows him an inherent understanding of the games and how they are played.  Same goes for soccer announcers around the world.  He has almost zero prior knowledge of the game and he said as much in the article I read.  How can he be expected to understand the nuances of this game?  His method of calling games is typically american in my opinion.  Overblown and senseless, full of cheap sayings and volume.  Needless to say i am not looking forward to his calls (in any sport) and i think FOX is making a big mistake with this move.  If anything they should've hired Alexi Lalas or something to take this on. Not this guy...

Just read online that Fox is grooming Gus Johnson to become the voice of soccer on Fox.  This is an abomination.  I hate Joe Buck but honestly this man is the most obnoxious voice in college football and college basketball.  The way he yells during a big play makes me want to vomit.  Supposedly he will be calling the Feb. 13th Real vs Man U match from the Bernabeu and the Feb. 19th Arsenal vs Bayern match.  I am disgusted that Fox would think this is the right option.  The article mentions that he'll probably be calling the world cup as well.... What are they thinking???  By his own admission, he knows very little about international soccer, or soccer in general.   Honestly, this has potentially made the next 8 years or so of soccer on Fox nearly unbearable....

For some reason this really pisses me off haha damn

This conversation that Rostos is trying to have is not about how teams perform due to injuries, its about information and the process by which the oddsmakers obtain it...

I agree that this aspect is interesting to say the least.  One would think that there are only a few places that this info regarding player availability could come from ie coaches, team doctor, team beat writers etc... Assuming this, you'd have to then assume that the info does NOT initially go to the public.  Obviously there isn't too much lag on the info, but by the time it does become "public" Vegas has already adjusted itself to limit any exposure.  Somehow there is a direct conduit for this info that sends it to the oddsmakers first...  I'm guessing there isn't a good explanation for this and there probably never will be.

I would have really thought that most action would have been on the OVER tonight....Very strange.  Maybe its baffling to see the bucks in a game with such a high total.  Who knows?  I'm on the over now and I'm pretty sure it'll end in the 180 range haha
