  1. well he is long dong silver, so I guess......
  2. Dolphins Who's gonna win? Most open season in a long time, too early to even have a bet this year.
  3. I know you'd have thought it would make the newzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..............
  4. surely that's the scouse scallys?
  5. Very good holiday this year in Fuerteventura, probably the best family holiday we've had, although Gran Canaria (peurto rico) a few years ago was also good stuff. Golfing holiday for a week in Ireland with 7 of us was superb couple of years ago though. Based in large house near Drogheda, had an absolute blast
  6. what happened? Marshalls killed?
  7. yup, you just keep on apologising for these cowardly murderers.And their justification for the twin towers attack? Please, get some perspective. The invasion of Iraq, for whatever reason, right or wrong, removed a tyrant that had killed millions of his own people, and ruled by fear. Hmmm, think Mr Muslim, God that makes me angry, those horrible Americans getting rid of that despised leader, lets go and kill some innocent civilians in London as revenge
  8. Amazing isn't it? How much will the Tims be shouting the eastern europens now?
  9. sorry chocolate monkey, but you never hear Ladbrokes being trumpeted as a good room, only those who never play any other site have a high opinion of it. $25 bonus, is that trying to set a record for the worst bonus in the industry, sorry, but before you critisice the German chappie, you should really get your facts straight.
  10. Great! Orange County game, we already have a home game here and you are welcome to join!! <{POST_SNAPBACK}> is anyone still interested. We can set up a private tourney on Kiwi Poker via TheHomeofPoker If we get enough interest it can be set up to the spec wanted here? And yes the home of poker is a joint venture between that German chappie and myself, but as no-one has taken this bull by the horns, thought it might as well be me <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Ok, no interest after all, we'll drop the subject
  11. Thinking of buying a new set of wheels. Getting a great deal on an Alfa 156 Veloce JTD. Anyone got some good/ bad views or experience with them? I've always been a blue oval boy, but the Alfa looks xxxx hot. (obviously I dont want any German rubbish, so not considering an overpriced Beemer)
  12. anyone got the score v Rushen today?
  13. having just left the island, I couldnt agree less. 3 bed-semi, in very good condition, larger than usual rear garden, south facing rear with cons. 9 months on the market, 4 viewers in that time, and eventually took 20k less than CG's valuation. not exactly good demand

  15. Nothing to do with Manx Telecom that. I presume you are referring to the e-gaming industry. Quite simply, the Gaming Commission and governemnt officials involved in this area hadn't a clue about the industry, or what was required by the operators to make it work. All that was ever offered was an increasing number of restrictive practices that eventually led to all licensees saying enough is enough, cya later!! And dont believe the bullxxxx that was peddled recently about the no US play restriction being at the behest of these same licence holders. While it is true that the American companies would not have taken US business anyway, as they had too much to lose in their home market for that, they did not REQUEST that these restrictions were monitored daily with reports being available for the commissioners to inspect at will, and the other companies were under no such restriction but strangely (as there was supposedly no manx directive) also were unable to take US players. This could have been a multi-million pound industry for the IoM, but it was seriously botched and yet next to nothing has been said about it. Getting MGM and Kerzner to locate in the island was a huge coup, losing them in little over a year was mismanagement on an enormous scale.
  16. Because OPERATING profit, does not include capital expenditure, the cost of this building will be deferred over a number of years in their capital expenditure, otherwise company results would go up and down like yoyos every year that they did or did not have a large capital project completed
  17. How would anyone know? If you could predict a market with 100% accuracy, you'd be a very rich man. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> ah but, is the finance sector withdrawing? That would lead to a pretty easy to predict crash, finance sector pulling out would remove a vast swathe of jobs in the island.
  18. Because you need one. Rot, just take a visit to the general registry, houses are selling, it's just slower at the moment. People still need houses. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> the point is valid nonetheless. I also read that the IoM housing market may well be on course for total collapse with the prospect of the finance sector pulling out over the next 10 years. Any truth in that rumour?
  19. Why? ladbrokes aren't in the isle of Man, too cryptic for me!
  20. Really very sad, just went to see her at the MEN a few weeks ago (my daughter insisted ), she was tremendous. Hopefully she'll be fine.
  21. Mmmm, might be one for the Ex-manxie, new found Bolton fan to return for B)
  22. Yes, you're right Lila, most sites will accomodate a group, especially if they can bring a large number. Paradise are good for that, the only problem there being that the cash games are very tight so not the best site for beginners if they want to change over to these later. Ladbrokes is pretty poor, those of you starting out want to be getting decent bonuses to help build the bankroll, Ladbrokes are very poor in this area. I would recommend Celeb poker for new players, the standard of play on there is awful, and they have a couple of daily freerolls that do not get thousands of players. The Gaming Club and Poker 333 also do 4 $1000 freerolls daily, trouble being the vast numbers of players playing these. Sometimes over 10,000
