    I would ask him to go into detail about losing his house from pitching nickels. This is a rather juicy topic that has'nt been exploited and gone into depth with yet.

    I dont care about his picks becuase they suck lately. If you owned as much real estate and golf courses as him, your picks would blow too.

    Yeah RPM, that and wether or not you know you are actually on the same side as him. Or if he is just trying to get you to move the line the other way.


    Why bother?

    BW is one of the most intriguing characters that this industry has ever seen...

    Beiing fortunate enough to know him, I believe he is unequivically the sharpest sports bettor of them all...

    I doubt anyone will surpass all that he has accomplished in my lifetime...

    Although some say he is difficult to work with, my relationship with him has always been positive...

    P.S.

    I know for a fact that he has this forum bookmarked...

    A rep from a sportsbook has to be censored for name calling? I guess BW's kicked their ass a little too much. LMAO!

    I would like to know how he went from being a down and out broke gambler to being, what Shrink has said, the sharpess sports gambler ever? You would think if he had this "sharpness" and this mastery of sports betting he wouldn't have been broke to begin with? How all of the sudden did he get this way? I guess I may have asked too many questions instead of the required one.

    Shrink is the first person I know that has ever said anything remotely nice about BW. (That is from the people that know him) I would ask him if people are right that say you can never trust this guy.

    I would ask if he he ever got so tired of tripping over the politicians and zoning officials that are sleeping on his door step that he decided to build them their own guest houses on his property.

    CAPN CRUNCH,

    First off, virtually every credit bookmaker offshore will tell you he pays FASTER than any of their customers when he loses. I have witnessed them being paid on Sunday Nights for the week ending then, which is most unusual as you know...

    I can also say there are a several others that have worked alongside with him for double digit years, so I suspect they are content with their business relationship with BW and vice versa or they'd have moved away...

    Lastly, I can attest for the countless number of movers he has hired that have screw ed him by NOT doing the right thing and placing the bets for themselves and not reporting truthfully back to BW...

    I can only comment on five years of knowing him, but I believe that's enough time to determine if he has treated me fairly or not.

    In my case, I have the utmost respect and appreciation for this man and his accomplishments...

    I am truly grateful for all that I have learned from him as well...

    I do realize I am the expection from speaking with many others who have worked with him and don't have such kind things to say...

    THE SHRINK

    Whatever you say Shrink

    Sure, you've had your good times with Billy. But one only has to look at the way Ken has presented himself through his 20,000 posts to make the same conclusion.


    At the end of the day, we all like this guy who gave us a place to post

    Rob,

    Thanks for the kind words...

    I am not sure everyone feels the way about me as you do, nor do I care...

    If I can tell myself that I have given it all I have at whatever it is I am doing, I usually feel good...

    Right now, spending quality time with my FAMILY supercedes everything else in my life...
