Gambling ad propaganda is getting to me

That corners market on Burnley v Brighton looks tempting

I’ve watched some golf on the American channels and they have the betting odds on a ticker tape at the top.

Does American football have the same?

As a mug punter I would say back Chelsea in every match they pay for the rest of this season

Can't believe I didn't back them last night, it looked obvious as hell they'd win

Edit: that was an actual Freudian slip

It's a little more discrete in the states. They'll pop up a stat when a team is 10 mns down "NextGen stats predict Tampa Bay has a 15% chance of winning". Makes it feel like a stat rather than encouraging you to gamble. They wouldn't have any gambling sponsors either.

Intersting actually they reckon gambling will be down a lot this year on the SuperBowl due to people being working from home. It's a bit like the Cheltenham/National here, if you're in work and you hear the lad next to you talking about it you'll get involved or do a pool. with no workplaces that'll be reduced a lot

Tonnes of toilet rolls being thrown on the pitch
Fog horns at games
Goalkeepers jerseys with padded elbows
Linesmen checking players studs before coming on as sub

I'm almost sure I seen that the other night but it was the 4th official holding up the substitute/player number's electronic board if I'm not mistaken. I assume that's the way it's been since they started using those electronic displays. 
That's how you fight loneliness,
You laugh at every joke,
Drag your blanket blindly,
Fill your heart with smoke,

Least Connolly and McLean were wearing long sleeves the other night. Most teams don’t even make long sleeve or sell long sleeve jerseys anymore. Well the manufacturers that it is.

Premier League teams playing pre-season games in Ireland

Dirty teams like Leeds or Wimbledon

Tough players

Poleforked pitches and groundsmen putting sand all over the muddy areas

Pitches marked out in different designs unlike the standard horizontal ones you see everywhere nowadays.

Yeah pity.  Ridiculous nonsense from the polit bureau of the Premier League with their crappy rules banning them.  Apparently it was to aid offside decisions. Well they have VAR now so bring them back.

Big teams with oddball kit makers.

Barca with Kappa or that odd brand they had in 1992

Inter with Uhlsport

Spurs with Pony

Italy with Diadora

Newcastle with Asics

etc...






Everyone has Nike, Adidas or Puma these days it seems.  Boring!
