Neil has been slagged off a lot and quite understandably so on this thread.

I always said I would reserve to make my proper judgment until I see what happens in the aftermath of it all. If he'd run away or not responded then I'd have been bitterly disappointed in more ways than one. I may sound like a fool with this post but I genuinely don't believe he did it with any true malice. I think a desire with wanting to make money and be successful became an obsession as things weren't going as he'd planned and he let things spiral out of control as he tried to recover.


It's early days yet but I know he's already seen his doctor and been to a GA meeting and from speaking to his mum several times on the phone it really does seem like he has a great family to help him too. He's always picked up the phone or responded to stakers when questioned and it does seem like he wants to fix this as best he can. Some pieces of the puzzle have been lost but if the rest is put together you can still make out the picture.

He told me he wants everyone paid and to put this all behind him.

I certainly hope he can make things right by his parents once everyone is paid and wish him well in the future.

What if his parents were busto too? If they had no cash no one would be getting repaid, he shouldn't get any props for this.

This will be the true test of his sincerity.

Sorry but this does make you sound like a fool,which I know you're not.

You might want to read back over all the bets,how early he went off the path and all of the dispicable "jokes" he posted and went along with,,money dumps etc etc before you start forgiving and forgetting.

We've had over 100 pages of recriminations and insults.

Neil (thanks to his family it seems) is now doing the right thing.

I think the time for accusations and jibes is past.

Let's just be happy that everyone is getting their money back and let the guy get on with rebuliding his life.

Just wanted to confirm that payments have been received by quite a number of stakers over the past few days, and more will be receiving their money later in the week.

Blatch has been in touch with me and Cos about the repayments.

Apparently everyone who has contacted him with their details has been repaid (some of the transfers will take a few days to come through yet).

I will be drawing a line under the whole thing personally.  I doubt I'll ever see or speak to Neil again, and hopefully he can sort his life out and get away from his gambling problem.  He's lucky to have such a supportive family and I guess that's more than a lot of others have.

Also just wanted to publicly thank Cos for what he's done since it all came out.  He's not as much of a tosser as many people think.
