Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
steaming tendencies
There are situations where prior events have no effect on future ones, but obviously there are situations where the opposite is true.

The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
Sorry Avon. I responded from memory and conflated posts with the odds with posts mentioning Ladbrokes.
The Talk That Never Was: The Blue Team Rule
