Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not sure what the logic behind it was.

Ah well theres the theory that the dogs are deeply crooked, and regular rumours pop up that someone is out to fix races. the usual method quotes is that the kennle girls are payed to "Manipulate" the dogs. in the post manipulation comedown, the dogs are sleepy and will run slower. theory goes that the one dog whos bodily functions still appear to be working normally, hasnt been knobbled. Couple of punters notice that, leap to put money on while they can still get good odds, and  the dogs price starts dropping, which makes other punters think something has been noticed, and round the vicious circle goes.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
