Column: FIFA presidency no laughing matter as would-be candidate becomes frontman for gambling

But I mean you’re talking about one of the biggest, powerfulest jobs in football and all you’re getting to hear about is Paddy Power.”

We’re talking here about David Ginola. Hull against Aston Villa on Feb. There’s nothing funny about the gambling industry’s latest wheeze to sink its teeth even deeper into football and its fans.

Imagine, for a moment, a Paddy Power-financed FIFA president.

Asking your kids to make tea during half-time breaks won’t shield them from the bombardment, not with gambling ads flashing throughout matches on pitch-side light-boards. Tuning in for results of football m88a betting pools, which offered big jackpots for small stakes, was a Saturday afternoon ritual for many 20th Century English families.

One of those is Kevin Twaddle, a former player for Motherwell and other Scottish clubs who told his story in the biography, “Life On The Line: How to Lose a Million and So Much More.” He no longer gambles and has delivered talks to other players about the risks.

Ginola has zero chance of unseating Sepp Blatter. FIFA’s election and ethics rules will almost certainly keep him off the May ballot. It reads like a plug for Fifty Shades of Grey.

John Leicester is an international sports columnist for The Associated Press. The increase was three-fold for children aged 4-15.

But that’s not the point here. 10 will pit two Asian online bookmakers against each other. In pocketing 250,000 pounds (335,000 euros; US$375,000) from bookmaker Paddy Power for this stunt, Ginola became the latest Trojan horse in the gambling and gaming industry’s creeping and creepy embrace of football.

PARIS –  Don’t laugh. “It’s great for Paddy Power. Bet some more.

“It just makes like a mockery of football.”

That is the message that football, more than most other sports, is mainlining into our homes, helped by names like Ginola and teams lending their cachet, stadiums, jerseys and players to the industry that had cash to splash when the 2008 financial crisis hobbled other sponsors.. Bet again. So silky as a player for Newcastle and Tottenham; so ridiculous now with his car-crash campaign for the FIFA presidency.

But gambling advertising wasn’t as in-your-face as now. It won’t happen; FIFA’s ethics rules should see to that. This was about making a splash. That much was clear from the Paddy Power branding.

And how about this blurb from Sky Bet, title sponsor since 2013 of England’s three divisions below the Premier League. Write to him at jleicester@ap.org or follow him at http://twitter.com/johnleicester

Sport “matters more when there’s money on it,” it says. After Thursday’s passing of the entry deadline, “Team Ginola” should fade away.

But the targets were our wallets and spending habits, not our hearts. “There’s more passion, more pleasure and more pain.”

“I’m here today to talk about love” were the Frenchman’s seductive opening words at his campaign launch in London this month.

All this in a sport grappling with the increasing danger of gambling-related match-fixing and with ample examples of gambling-addicted players who frittered away their wealth.

Whoa. But the mere thought of the gambling industry even attempting to place a stooge at the very top of football makes the prospect of another Blatter term seem perhaps not quite so bad.

Bet. What ever happened to sport for sport’s sake, for the buzz of competition, not a bet? How quaint. Villa’s shirt sponsor is dafabet, a name that works better in Chinese, where “dafa” means “big wealth.” Stoke and Burnley players are billboards for Bet365 and Fun88 (another name that plays on the Chinese word to get rich).

Sports and gambling have, of course, long gone together, feeding off each other’s success and growth. In the UK, which liberalized gambling advertising in 2007, adults’ exposure to gambling commercials on television soared five-fold in eight years to 2012, regulator Ofcom found. That was before online bookmakers offered odds on anything and everything, from match results and goals scored to which team will win the coin toss or take the first corner, and before their relentless advertising.

And that isn’t funny at all.

___

Twaddle takes a very dim view of Ginola’s Paddy Power-backed grab for FIFA.

“It’s eyeballs we’re after,” 12Bet executive Rory Anderson, quoted in the Daily Mail, said when the online bookmaker became the name on Hull City’s shirt for this Premier League season.

“It’s an absolute disgrace,” he said in a phone interview

“There will be plenty of talking about it in the month to come, because there is going to be a trial.”

Click here to read more in The New York Post.. Director Andrew Jarecki speaks about the HBO television show “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst” during the TCA presentations in Pasadena, California. (Reuters)

Andrew Jarecki was keeping mum at a party last Thursday in preparation for the trial of accused killer Robert Durst.

The director’s HBO miniseries, “The Jinx,” ended last Sunday with an apparent murder confession by Durst — and although Jarecki did several interviews afterward with outlets including “GMA,” he has canceled everything else in case he’s called as a witness.

“I wish I could talk to you more about it, but I can’t,” he said at the Baccarat Hotel with pal Greg Kinnear.

He also avoided having any photos taken.

After the series finale, Durst was arrested for the murder of his former spokeswoman, Susan Berman, in California.

“I have achieved something I always wanted to achieve and now have the belief that when it comes to the crunch I can do it. .

“But, even though you are ready for when it comes, it’s a horrible feeling.”

“I have had a good season.

Perry told the BBC: “I have won a tournament this season with every player in it and this is no different.

Perry will now in the last 16 meet 2005 champion Shaun Murphy on Sunday.

“But I know if I can play to my ability and keep calm and relaxed, which I have learned to do in the last few years, then there is no reason why I can’t have a good run.”

Perry added of his opponent’s mini-revival: “He didn’t do himself justice in the morning and you sort of expect it to happen. I am here to win. I work hard and practice hard and I am getting results.”

Perry was 7-0 up versus Zhang – the lowest ranked player in the tournament at 98 – who recovered to make it 8-4. Photo credit should read: Anna Gowthorpe/PA Wire EMN-140424-092301002

Chatteris veteran cueman Joe Perry believes he can win the snooker World Championship for the first time in his professional career.

“If I am brutally honest, I don’t think I have ever come here genuinely believing I can win.

Perry said of Murphy: “He looks in an aggressive mood so I need to be sharp and my safety needs to be exceptionally good,” Perry added. Picture date: Sunday April 20, 2014.

“The balls he goes for are high risk and if he gets them I will shake his hand, if he doesn’t then I will get plenty of opportunities.”

The former world semi-finalist safely got through the first round on Wednesday by defeating Chinese qualifier Zhang Anda to seal a 10-4 win at the Crucible in Sheffield. I am happy, confident and am enjoying my snooker.

“I’ve got some really loyal supporters and they’ve really stuck by me for all these years considering I haven’t won anything, so it was great to get the win for them.”

“I always enjoy playing him and whatever happens I’ll enjoy it but ultimately I believe I can win.”

That seemed to suck the life out of the Chinese superstar and the world No 13 clinched victory with another century in frame nine to set up a quarter-final with Mark Allen on Friday afternoon.

Although Ding narrowed the gap to one after the mid-session interval, frame six proved crucial as Perry got the three snookers he required and cleared up to establish a 4-2 advantage.
