twitter: appendix

People are still talking about Skeeve Picks over at twitter and, as much as I'd love to talk to Darran directly, I don't have the bloke's e-mail address (mine is skeevepicks at gmail dot com), so here's another post (hopefully the last one) on the topic.

Here's what's been said in the meantime:

Darran: the best non league tipster there has ever been posted their tips for free on the punters lounge forum which he should know well as I am told he started off their. If he was making enough money to make a living out of it then he wouldn't need to sell tips in my view. 10 seasons profit is very good but I still don't believe this is his only job as he doesn't to my eye make enough of a profit to sustain a living. I never said I was better than him more the point that I would be much better value for money. For 500 euros I would be expecting tips all season long and way more profit than he is making. As for putting coral up I just state whoever has the best price. The companies he uses are small firms who I suspect no one who follows me has an account for so utter pointless

SBC: you need to speak with him about this not me.

Darran: if he was so good he would struggle to get on anywhere especially on such a niche market. fair play he is well researched and just being in profit is a fine achievement

SBC: What I would suggest is you speak with him directly about this. I am merely passing on his blog post as requested

Darran: no doubt he will read the tweets as someone clearly tipped him off.

Charlie: Such a bitter man, Darren. So unsubtle too...

Darran: not bitter at all. He is welcome to his say as I am mine. Not sure why you are getting involved though

Charlie: You're always sniping at others involved in same field. You don't own the non-league niche so don't know why you act like it.

Darran: I don't think that at all. Only people I question are ones I don't think are telling the whole truth

Charlie: Sure, you're tone on here suggests otherwise. Where's your results anyway?

Darran: don't keep results. People can either follow me or not. If I felt writing previews were a waste of time I wouldnt do them

Charlie: You've the temerity to question a professional when you don't even bother keeping results? Hello amateur hour
Darran: I'm not questioning his results more what he offers for a very large amount of money.

Charlie: "I'd be much better value for money" - how? You don't even know how good or bad you are. It's basics. Christ.

Darran: being free helps. No one would follow me of I lost and the fact I end up with money in my betting accounts come the end of the season tells me I'm in profit. If I lost money I wouldn't even bother writing the previews as I wouldn't want people to follow me and it would be a waste of time writing them. I only do it to help people make money

Charlie: You're not getting it. If you'd tracked results, I'd follow you. To even brand yourself a tipster w/out results in laughable. You're just a bloke who writes a blog with bets, you're not a tipster.

Darran: fair enough your welcome to your opinion. Like I say I am free so don't go chasing readers. also racing post have tipsters yet they never publish their stats either

Charlie: They do, annually.

Darran: no they don't. Never seen any profit or loss from any racing or sport tipsters in the paper.

Charlie: They do.

As much fun as this has been, it's taken way too much time already, so I'll just comment on the key bits:

Darran: the best non league tipster there has ever been posted their tips for free on the punters lounge forum which he should know well as I am told he started off their

I'm familiar with the Punters Lounge, but have never posted there. I was a resident tipster on the ex-Punters Paradise forum back in 2007 though.

Darran: If he was making enough money to make a living out of it then he wouldn't need to sell tips in my view. 10 seasons profit is very good but I still don't believe this is his only job as he doesn't to my eye make enough of a profit to sustain a living.

And there's the good old "why would you sell tips if you're a good tipster?" gem of a question again. Well done.

Darran: As for putting coral up I just state whoever has the best price. The companies he uses are small firms who I suspect no one who follows me has an account for so utter pointless

Here's a new slogan for Pinnacle - winners welcome, so utter pointless.

Darran: if he was so good he would struggle to get on anywhere especially on such a niche market.

Has Darran ever heard of winners-welcome bookmakers?

And all this from a fellow "indie music lover, especially Blur". Modern life is rubbish. :(

Charlie: Where's your results anyway?

Darran: don't keep results. People can either follow me or not.
