I'm not sure what's happened but this season isn't over yet, has been loss making since Christmas and yet, I'm starting to receive a fair few comments about next season and what it will look like. Also had a couple of emails asking about this too. Considering I was thinking of giving up on this a few weeks back, it seems people are more interested in this than when the ratings were hugely profitable! :(
I'm trying my best to keep track of questions as and when they are being asked by various people but I thought it might help if I put up a post asking for anyone to come forward with questions now. I don't want to get bogged down this summer with admin and answering questions day in, day out as my time needs to be spent working with the data I think. However, before this season ends, if people can put up any questions on this post, I'll do a Q&A post at some point soon.
The questions I've been asked in the past 24 hours or so are (Thanks to Alvin/Alex/David for these as a starter for ten):
Where can people join the mailing list I mentioned?
Will numbers be capped? If not, can you pay to get the bets first?
Will bets be sent out before appearing on blog?
What systems will be live?
What betting banks does each system need?
What are the drawdowns for each system for DNB?
Can I graph the drawdowns for each system for outright betting, DNB, DC?
Can I compare volatility of DNB and outright on each system?
Is DC a viable method to follow e.g. Is backing the draw profitable?
A few questions which I feel need answering from an admin perspective are:
When will the bets be sent out and posted on the blog next season?
Which bookies will prices be quoted from?
What will the new systems be called? Will these be worth following?
Which systems are being dropped?
I'm sure there are some people reading this blog who have some questions to ask and therefore, feel free to ask away on here. I'll collate any questions, structure them in some sort of way and then do a post answering the questions as best I can. Many questions will not be answerable until after this Summer but if people want to look at certain systems or staking plans etc. ask away and I'll log all these too.
I said to someone in an email today that I'm not their personal footie analyst and therefore, I can't answer all their questions at once! However, this blog is the place to do that stuff I guess and over the summer, with no football taking place, this is the time to try to push this analysis further and hopefully help some people come up with ways to make a profit next season from my footie ratings. Hence, if there is anything you think is worth looking at, drop me a comment or even an email if it's too long for a comment and I'll take a look at it.
