APPG calls for inquiry following Football Index scandal

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Football Index’s operator BetIndex went into administration earlier this month, following a change in its dividend structure that BetIndex said was necessary to ensure the platform remained sustainable. This dividend change came days after the operator encouraged new investments from players by minting new shares in footballers. The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Gambling Related Harm (APPG) has called on the Secretary for Digital Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to lead a public inquiry into the collapse of Football Index. Sports betting Topics: Sports betting Sports betting regulation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 25th March 2021 | By Nosa Omoigui Regions: UK & Ireland The operator’s collapse has put the funds of many players in doubt. Although the Gambling Commission has received assurances that player account funds would be paid before any other debts, Football Index’s terms and conditions say that funds invested into players on the site are not protected as they are “sums at risk.” Soon after the collapse, the Gambling Commission revealed it had been reviewing the platform for almost a year but had not taken action, partly due to concerns that action it did take would have worsened the business’ financial plight. In a letter to the secretary of state, APPG chairs Carolyn Harris MP, Ronnie Cowan MP and Lord Foster of Bath said: “In a regulated sector, when people gamble, they should have the confidence they are doing so on the basis of the outcome of a wager – it should not be a gamble on the solvency or sustainability of the licensed operator.“We are therefore calling on you to hold an urgent public inquiry into the events which allowed this to happen as well as the conduct and competence of the Gambling Commission.” Tags: Gambling Commission Football Index APPG Email Address The collapse saw players lose all the money they had invested.

Perpignan upset Stade Francais at home in Paris

first_imgFriday Oct 30, 2009 Perpignan upset Stade Francais at home in Paris A Top 14 match in Paris is like a Test match anywhere else in the world. It’s treated as a huge spectacle and when watching the start of this clip, you’d think you were watching a World Cup Final, not just another league game between Stade Francais and Perpignan.It’s what makes the Top 14 so great to watch, as while other tournaments around the world struggle with attendances, the French continue to get out there and support their sides by the masses. This match had 77 000 people in attendance at the Stade De France.Perpignan upset hosts Stade Francais 20-14, with great tries by Maxime Mermoz and Jerome Porical, who got a personal tally of 15 points. This was despite the home side scoring first through a nice move and try to Hugo Southwell.In the second half the lead changed hands a few time, as Julien Dupuy kept his side in the match with two penalties, but Porical came back and landed the killer blow with his second try after great lead up play by Henry Tuilagi and Florian Cazenave.Stade did however pick up a bonus point, and had a great chance at snatching the win near the end, but they unfortunately dropped the ball after a promising attack contributed to a tense finish.

Joe Marler explains to referee that early RWC exit is reason for late tackle against Wasps

first_imgTuesday Oct 20, 2015 Joe Marler explains to referee that early RWC exit is reason for late tackle against Wasps England’s players have returned for the start of the Aviva Premiership following their early exit from the World Cup, and while it’s mostly back to business, for some the pain and frustration is clearly still just under the surface. Here’s a look at a great bit of chat between prop Joe Marler and referee Luke Pearce, and a hilarious explanation for a late tackle.It’s not the first time Marler has had an amusing chat with the referee. Remember the time he questioned Andrew Small’s choice of footwear? Perhaps on that occasion he had a point. Harlequins went on to beat Wasps 26-21 at the Twickenham Stoop.

Peltier: ‘Recapture the freedoms we’ve lost’

first_imgLeonard PeltierFrom greetings sent by Leonard Peltier, imprisoned leader of the American Indian Movement, to the Day of Mourning in Plymouth, Mass., on Nov. 22.I’m saddened that we have to call this a Day of Mourning, but we must take every opportunity to remind this nation when it comes to keeping its word about treaties, about human rights, about the environment, about excess pollution — that it has failed miserably on all of those concerns. I also want to remind the major religions that speak about peace and love and brotherhood and are celebrating this thing called Thanksgiving, that we, the Native people of this land, realistically overall have nothing to truly be thankful about regarding the arrival of the Pilgrims.And I would also like to remind the major various religions of this country that in all their teachings it says you reap what you sow. And if that is a true statement, if that is the law given by the Creator, then you have to only look around at the news of the day to see that that statement is coming to pass. This country is not keeping its solemn word under god that it gave regarding our treaties. And they don’t keep their own Scriptures that say not to bear false witness or lie. They’ve tried to keep us from honoring our fathers by destroying our culture. They violated their word where it says “thou shalt not kill,” violated every one of their commandments regarding our people in this land. And they will truly reap what they sow. …I want to encourage all the young people to always remember that your health and the health of the earth are the most important things that you possess. And that self-discipline is the most important thing that you can learn. And taking responsibility for ourselves and our future is the most empowering thing that we can do. … Educate yourself to our true history, educate yourself to what is really going on today, and educate yourself as to what needs to be done to make a better tomorrow for yourselves and your children’s children, our future generations. …We need each other. If I am ever to be free, I need you. And the truth is, none of us is truly free right now, because any people who is afraid of their government is not free. We all need to be warriors of one. Each needs to know how to defend themselves on any level. And as I’ve said before, we need to recapture the freedoms we’ve lost and protect the ones we still have.In closing I want to encourage each and every one of you to stand up in your own way in whatever way you can for what’s right, try to right what’s wrong, and know that in my heart and in whatever way I can help you, that I will be with you. We need each other, you need each other, and we need the help of all peoples to correct this great damage that is taking place throughout the earth. Our battle is not with a race, a people, or a color, our battle is with ignorance and greed that is ruling the governments of men today.In the spirit of Crazy Horse and all those beautiful people who have stood up for what’s right in the past, and the ones standing up now, stay strong and support one another,Your Friend Always and in All Ways,Leonard PeltierFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

March for missing and murdered Indigenous people and their families

The rally and march included drummers, dancers, canoe families and ceremony along with speakers.The murders and disappearances of Indigenous women constitute a worldwide crime perpetrated by the system of capitalist colonialism. According to the Urban Health Institute’s 2018 report, there were 5,718 reports of missing U.S. and Alaskan Native women and girls in 2016. Rally leader Roxanne White pointed out that Seattle has the highest rate of this anti-Indigenous violence in the U.S. Donney Stevenson, Vice-Chair of the Muckleshoot Tribe, told the crowd, “No longer is it okay for our people to be marginalized.

CFPB Director Cordray Doubles Down on Arbitration Clause Stance

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Subscribe Mandatory pre-dispute arbitration clauses are “deliberately designed to block Americans from effective means of vindicating their rights” and are “having profound effects on American life,” according to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Richard Cordray in a recent address at the American Constitution Society in Washington, D.C.In October 2015, the Bureau announced that it is considering a proposal that would prevent consumer financial companies from using “free pass” arbitration clauses that would prevent consumers from bringing class action lawsuits to obtain relief. These arbitration clauses are typically buried in contracts for consumer financial products and deny consumers the right to sue companies in groups. Companies can use the “free pass” to avoid class action lawsuits from consumers that would require them to hand out big refunds, according to CFPB.“These important clauses have often been buried deep in the fine print of contracts for consumer financial products and services, such as credit cards, bank accounts, payday loans, and private student loans,” Cordray said in his address at the American Constitution Society. “And though they are nearly invisible to most people, they are having profound effects on American life. Some of the broader ramifications are surprising and even breathtaking in their scope. But now both the Congress and the courts are beginning to turn away from the extreme philosophy that says a take-it-or-leave-it provision buried deep inside a form contract can nullify an individual citizen’s ability to vindicate rights conferred on them by federal and state law.”Cordray noted that judicial doctrine on arbitration has evolved to favor arbitration, but Congress still has the authority to adopt laws to regulate the dispute resolution process.The director also pointed out that Congress sought to limit the power of arbitration in the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, stating that “Congress expressly prohibited the inclusion of arbitration clauses in most residential mortgage loan contracts. It gave the Securities and Exchange Commission authority to prohibit or restrict use of such clauses for certain disputes, if it finds that doing so would be in the public interest and for the protection of investors.”Congress also directed the CFPB to conduct a study (released in March 2015) on the use of pre-arbitration clauses in consumer financial contracts; Cordray spoke extensively of the 728-page study in his address, noting that it was based on extensive information compiled from thousands of federal and state court cases and also data analyzed from the country’s largest arbitration forum. The CFPB’s study revealed that “tens of millions” of American consumer are covered by one or more arbitration clauses, and that the “vast majority” of these consumers did not even know the clauses exist.“Importantly, our study showed that arbitration clauses restrict consumers’ relief in disputes with financial service providers because companies are using them to block class proceedings in any forum—whether court or arbitration,” Cordray said. “This affects consumers’ access to justice because group proceedings are often the only practical way to seek relief for relatively small claims.”He stated that the results of the report “show that arbitration clauses severely limit consumers’ options to pursue a just resolution of their disputes, to their detriment and without their knowledge.” Cordray said based on the findings of the study, the Bureau has decided to launch a rulemaking process to protect consumers by limiting the extend to which arbitration clauses can be used.Click here to view the full text of Cordray’s address.
