    I get sad when I see Drop catch $2 worth of domains in a day. It won't be long now until all those punters start betting somewhere else. Is there any outlook for Drop getting its mojo back?

    Used to be DomainWatch caught 100% of domains. Then Drop dominated for a long time - we were scrapping for 5% for many months. Things change all the time so as I've always said if you're chasing a name, you may as well back it on all platforms.

    Don't feel you have to, Andrew. Surely you've got bigger things to think about (Playboy mansion?) :)

    Regardless of dominance, it is always best to back it on both (all) platforms.

    I wouldn't mind if the catches were 50/50 (or however many players there are eventually), but even I get depressed seeing how unsuccessful the Drop platform has been lately.

    Thank God (or maybe just Mark and David) for the cheap join to NF platform recently :)

    I guess that is the thing about drop catchers one day they can pull in 2 bucks another day it can be a $30,000+ day...

    I am going to start picketing outside DBS offices with a "Bring Back The Pong" campaign.

    You know what they need is someone good at catches .. maybe a spokesman .. steal Mark Waugh from Fujitsu

    "Hardware.com.au, another classic catch by Drop"

    Haha yeah, that's what I said, you weren't listening.

    But they need Waugh, he still has the test catch record right? Ant from Drop was quick to point out there's a West Indie or someone else with a better career record, but hey, Aussie Aussie Aussie right - come on, it's Australia day!

    If they picked up Mark Waugh, at least he could finally beat his brother at something. Those AHM "ahem" ads that Steve did were terrible!
