Every time that 7 shows up, the crew has to take down and reset the ATS bets, which slows down the game. People will continue to bet it even after it has been taken down by a come out 7, so the initial ATS bets might as well stay up (e.g., not be taken down) until the roll ends. What is wrong with someone wanting one of those numbers (2,3,11,12) to hit if they have made an ATS bet and that one number is what is needed for them to win? In addition, hitting any of those numbers wouldn't result in a PL loser. I'd rather see the ATS bet(s) hit when I'm on the PL because that means it's more likely a decent roll. You might be pressing your place bets to a nice level during the roll, but the player with $25/$25/$25 on the ATS probably could give a shi*t about your $300 Place 6 when all he needs is the 12 to hit for a $5K+ payout. Can't blame him in that situation, either. Besides, how often has rooting for a number (other than the point) actually resulted in that number being rolled?
