  • .....that I failed to bring to the boards attention that within the last few weeks A TON OF FEDERAL MONEY has been flowing into the coffers of the City & Town of Newburgh...............


    I am going to laugh all the way to the bank when Orange is picked since the rumor mill is beginning to trickle out.................

    BYE BYE SULLIVAN! Who cares if you get picked! Plan B was always the best answer!

  • All you SC people are in for such a rude awakening.......

    Push up your little stock price because the floor boards are about to be ripped out from under your feet.

    BTW: Yeah-yeah-yeah! I know all about the issues surrounding my Patriots. I said it before & I'll say it again:

    Fire OC/DC coordinators then bring Belichick upstairs and let him know that the game has surpassed his football intellect.

    From horrible play calling to poor Patriots are at best a 2nd tier organization!

    The county would be better off -

    Orange is not far of a drive. SC will always survive. Its survived decades without dumb gaming. Change the landscape politically and bring in young blood with fresh ideas!

    smart comments. he knows and and understand that the snow wall beyond exit 116 is a sure way of closing the doors!

  • .....get your notes & facts in order and deliver the KNOCKOUT punch to that "fraud" of a casino and county known as SULLIVAN!

    Keep hearing whispers - land around routes 17k...207...and 300 are GOLDEN!

    .....suckers into buying. Easy money and easy move.......

    This is manipulation at its best! Watch sucker money move in then watch savvy money move out for quick coin.

    You people are as dumb as a farmer cutting grass early in the morning.............

    All this lawsuit talk in Orange County has me laughing. Cant wait till all you morons are left holding worthless paper. Sullivan County and all its dreams are in for a real rude nightmare!

    Lets get this stock B.S. out of the way first. You all know how I feel. Would love to see Sullivan get passed over and return to the resources that the county is known for. If anything - I'm cool with a casino on the border of both counties. Mainly in the Town of Montgomery. Should satisfy all the parties. Best of both worlds. the NFL:

    AS A PATRIOT FAN I am sick of the lack of creativity on offense. Brady relies way to much on Edelman; Ridley is a game or two away before the fumbles begin; & Gronk & Wilfork both should have been traded in the off-season. No production from the 2nd or 3rd wideout and Vereen needs to be utilized in every formation the offense runs. Cant understand the teams infatuation with that moron of an O.C McDaniels?

    .....and most importantly - I AM DEATHLY AFRAID OF THE NY JETS.!!!!!

    Its not the greatest tradeoff of lost talent but our most versatile linebacker (Collins) and center (Wendall) are both out. I hate it when a teams best player is lost for the game. Bittersweet in my opinion. Looking forward to a Patterson-Revis matchup.

    Cant believe BC upset my Trojans. WOW! Well deserved win. Good for the program. Those kids stormed the field. It was cool.

    Watched fight last night. Very impressive defensive performance. I'm not really a fan of Mayweather but if his game plan is identical in a potential re-match against a Freddie Roach trained Cotto I think Cotto is going to beat the tar#$%$ out of his shoulder and drop him in 11th or 12th round. Cotto still has power. Rather see that fight then a fight with Khan.

    .....ya need to do on a rainy Hudson Valley Saturday afternoon -

    WATCH "TOMBSTONE" (prefer Kurt Russel version)

    EAT "CHICKEN SALAD" (prefer it toasted on wheat bread)


    Yup - even "yours truly" can be civilized from time-2-time

    My bad - yup.....thats the show. Completely fake! I watched one episode and almost tossed up two weeks worth of frozen!

    Believe me when I tell you that I have close to 1000 vhs tapes of college football and college basketball games. At one point I was toying around with the idea of becoming a professional sports handicapper. NOTE: I SAID HANDICAPPER - NOT BETTOR. Huge difference. Have to have to possess money management and most importantly - DISCIPLINE! Without those two characteristics your bankroll in several weeks will be dust in the wind.

    I was good. I used to set my own line night before the "SHARPS" had a crack at the virgin number (usually posted at the Stardust) and compare the two. Then you had to compete with the outlaw (offshore) lines. It became overwhelming.

    For me - the end of the dream began when they started to take off games from the 11pm and 1am board. THOSE CRAZY West Coast games. Schools that only the guys who burned the midnight oil knew of. The Idaho Vandals. The San Jose State Spartans. Hawaii Rainbows when Coach Jones had Chang toss the pig-skin 100x's in a game to the wr's who lined up in a 4-set!

    Ya know, I feel like cryin'........................

    It is the "unspoken" intangible that the suits on the 3rd floor are petrified of! Ask any of them and watch them bolt like a Bat Out Of Hell! I brought it up several times when I caught an executive or two at the racino or when they slip out of their limo's and grab some lunch or dinner around town.

    I could care less if a casino is built for the farmers and dreamers in the Crapskills. Legalized sports wagering will expedite the tumble-weeds in Sullivan quicker then popping in the movie Tombstone.

    Its one hell of an industry. Very rough to turn a profit. Have to win 52.2% of your selections to turn some coin. Only person who made a living from it (recently) was Billy Walters of the famed Computer Group. That was back in the 80's and early 90's. Studied the "sharps" for years especially when the outlaw lines (off-shore) became more prevalent. Dont buy into that B.S. show on FX. Guy is a moron. No difference between him and Wayne Allen Root. Their touts! The lines on mainstream T.V. are perfectly set to balance out the publics take on the favorite and underdog.

    Feel free to continue -

  • Certain sources I know said that after Neuhaus mentioned "NO TAX BREAKS" the body language from officials from Sullivan County indicated D. E. F. E. A. T. !


    Read and weep -

    Officials from all three counties attended with Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus lending his support to the proposals in his county.

    “The most compelling argument that Orange County has is that we don’t need tax breaks to start a casino and all the other casinos in our region rely on exorbitant tax breaks in order to function. That really goes against the whole purpose of setting this casino legislation. They are supposed to generate money, not generate tax breaks,” he said.
