Punters Realm was founded in 2005 by a small group of friends who were actively engaged in sports and online sports betting.
LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As Web users become more demanding of highly useable websites, the Internet has started to adapt. Many of todays websites reflect an outdated style with very limited usability; attributes of an era before Web 2.0 became main stream. Today, with the launch of Punters Realm, we have is a first to bring this usability experience to the users of the online sports betting world. Placement, feeds and content can be adjusted and saved, finally putting the users behind the wheel of their experience says Jeffrey Cammack, Marketing Manager for Punters Realm. This, along with a collection of new interactive features that allows the readership to engage and manage the sports betting news that reaches them, gives a level of empowerment the site creators thought was about due.
Punters Realm is very proud to announce that we have done what the sports betting industry has not yet been able to do. This customizable website will engage a betting audience that will hold a sports bettors interest visit after visit says Slick, a moderator at The Daily Punt Forum. They felt the need had come for a one-stop-shop for news that covered all sports, saving individuals from visiting a collection of m88 sites and instead importing the news feeds that interests them.
Online sports betting information portals have changed little since the industry started in the late 1990s.
A drag-and-drop feature that allows users to place objects on a page dependent on their order of importance to the experience. While some readers will visit to read expert sports betting tips and others to find the best betting odds on games and customizable news feeds, Punters Realm will accommodate their wishes that will be saved until their next visit
Hazard the latest Chelsea FC star to back Mourinho; insists he was not upset at being dropped against Porto
October 11, 2015
Then it is my task to encourage the boys on the field.
International break might be a welcome distraction for Hazard
With the Belgians scheduled to face Andorra and Israel during the international break and set to confirm qualification for next summers tournament in France, Hazard could well get the confidence boost needed to get his season going.
His support for Mourinho is also another positive sign, and if taken at face value, indicates that even though there may be differences of opinion, the Chelsea FC squad remains a strong unit. Ahead of their m88 game against Andorra, Hazard spoke to Voetbal Krant (via WAGNH) about the situation at Chelsea FC: I know, you guys. It is unlikely that Hazard will go the entire season without hitting a purple patch, and the Blues fortunes will almost certainly change when that happens.
Belgian superstar Eden Hazard has become the latest Chelsea FC player to back manager Jos Mourinho, insisting he was not upset by the Portugueses decision to leave him on the bench against FC Porto in the Champions League
2014-2015 PFA Player of the Year Eden Hazard has had an objectively poor season thus far by his standards, with the Chelsea FC team as a whole struggling with a lack of confidence brought on by their poor early-season form.
Belgium should have no difficulties beating both Andorra and Israel, and even though the Chelsea FC attacker will face opposition of a higher quality in the Premier League, a strong showing in the Red Devils games will help him build up momentum as the Blues enter a crucial period in their season.
While away on Belgium duty, the 24-year-old became the latest player to back Mourinho, while also confessing that he has not been able to come up with an explanation for his poor form, or indeed that of the teams.
Hazard acknowledges poor form, shows Mourinho support
The Belgian is yet to open his account in the Premier League, with his strike against Arsenal FC being ruled as a Calum Chambers own goal. However, Hazard seems to have found his goalscoring boots for the national team, scoring in both of their qualifying games in the previous international break.. [My form] could be better. Personally, it is not very good, but also the team (Chelsea) is in a dip.
Honestly, I do not know [the cause]. But is not that normal in a football career? Sometimes you happen to fall.
The interview appears to have been a fairly informal one, with Hazard also insisting that he wasnt upset by Mourinhos decision to bench him against FC Porto: I have no problems with [Mourinho putting me on the bench against Porto]. But Im not worried. For me it is the first time that the momentum is a little less
Champions League’s Crazy Eights predictions
October 11, 2015
The Madrid side are reveling in their one-point lead over the Catalans in La Liga standings, while Barca who tied Los Colchoneros 0-0 at the Vicente Caldron in January will host Madrid on the last game of the season at the Camp Nou with at least seasonal bragging rights on the line. Now the teams have international competition matches on April 1st and 9th to add to their servings.
Playing Barcelona at home when it matters is a daunting task, just ask any world class club save Bayern. Prediction: Real makes a meal of Dortmund, beating them decisively if perhaps not in as demoralizing a manner for Dortmund as some of the Real fans might want.
On the field, the teams match up well and each has the big guns to take over a m88 match or stop someone from so doing. Prediction: In the end Ibra progresses in the only stage left him to make good on his claim that the World Cup will miss him more than him it, and PSG will squeeze by Chelsea and into the semifinals. It was to be expected that with three Spanish Football teams in the pot two might just be drawn together and La Liga rivals Barcelona FC and Atletico Madrid obliged.
On the mirror side a potentially all-Brazilian defense of Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Alex, and Maxwell would have their hands full with the likes of Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba, to pick three of Mou’s. In a year of mostly downer news for the Red Devils, and with a potential way out of the morass they have been mired in for so long, the final straw was delivered in the form of the injury to Robin Van Persie which will keep him out of uniform for the next six weeks.
Nothing in last year’s Champions League competition was more disturbing than the officiating of the match between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmnud at Westfalenstadion. Prediction: Barca moves on with a statement win at home despite lesser luck at the Calderon. And that may have been the gods’ kindness–an exit at the hands of the champs is no dishonor.
For Merengues fans the end result, a 2-0 win at home that yet meant going out 4-3 on aggregate when a single extra goal would have seen them through, was a bitter pill to swallow.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s PSG got to play the Only One’s Chelsea FC, Real Madrid got a grudge rematch with Borussia Dortmund, and Manchester United have the chance to make up for, if not erase from memory, a dismal season (by their standards) by eliminating all-world, super-club and cup holders Bayern Munich.
In the competition’s biggest clash of egos PSG’s Ibrahimovic and Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho get to face off in another entertaining match-up. David Moyes and troops, Bayern is a tough obstacle to surpass. This is well known Atletico that comes knocking and despite their domestic standing and growing international pedigree familiarity does breed contempt and Barca are not impressed. The Madrid side is playing its best football at just the right time and if they beat Barca on Sunday the high will carry them well into the Spring months.
To say that Barcelona and Atletico have had much to compete for lately is to understate their 2014 rivalry. Given how this season has gone though, this Sunday’s Clasico at the Bernabeu and/or May 18th’s match in Barcelona may well decide the domestic league title.
The draw for the 2014 Champions League final eight teams has some fantastic, some might say crazy, match ups. The uber-player and uber-coach have been kind to one another in public utterances and most recent writings you might peruse, but come play time these two are bound to offer up some memorable perspectives to accompany the application of their abundant football prowess.
Prediction: Pep Guardiola’s Bayern win comfortably, convincingly, but not by a KO–one has to believe that ManU has too much pride and experience to allow that to happen–this should be a unanimous decision instead.
Cristiano Ronaldo is having a career year to go along with his FIFA Ballon d’Or and a Champions League tournament win, as a precursor to bigger stages this summer is just what the Portuguese superstar wants and needs–la decima on his watch. The video speaks for itself but the Spanish side, many felt, had as much reason to complain as did the Malaga fans playing the same opponent the previous fortnight at the same stadium.
Without Robin, and despite having Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck back to their scoring ways of late, ManU simply is no match for the European club champs. Unfortunately, even if things were going swimmingly for poor Mr. A defensive roster of Petr Cech, Branislaw Ivanovic, Ashley Cole, David Luis and Gary Cahill, to pick a few potential starters, aided by the defensive minded Mou, should be a match for PSG coach Laurent Blanc’s attacking trio of Zlatan, Edinson Cavani, and Ezequiel Lavezzi.. But the gods have their ways and this year it is Real on the upswing and on a mission, and Dortmund is simply the cherry on top. Manchester United fans must be asking themselves if the gods are truly that cruel or that kind. This will be a hard fought tie with the Catalans prevailing as Lionel Messi rounds out into full-throttle shape at the right time and Neymar comes into his own at about the same time

Manchester United and Liverpool FC is the Premier League’s fiercest rivalry
September 11, 2015
As he walked off the Liverpool man pointed the finger of blame at Sir Alex Ferguson, accusing him of influencing the referee’s decision.
Shelvey apologised after the game and Ferguson admitted he was impressed, telling the midfielder he had ‘a bit of b***s about him.’

Encounters between these two are usually settled by the fun88 odd goal and in January 2005 it was Wayne Rooney that settled it in United’s favour.

It has long been English football’s most combustible fixture, a contest liable to explode at any second after a malicious tackle or word out of turn.
Manchester United vs Liverpool is the Premier League’s answer to the ‘Clasico’, a rivalry between two cities on so many levels condensed into 90 minutes on the football pitch.
We’ve had full-scale melees, rash two-footed challenges, ranting and raving, and plenty of handbags.
Ahead of Saturday’s showdown at Old Trafford, we take a look back at 10 flashpoints in this fixture from the modern era.
EVRA AND SUAREZ
The most controversial incident of recent times saw Liverpool striker Luis Suarez fined 40,000 and banned for eight games after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra in the Anfield contest on October 15, 2011.
A Football Association investigation found Suarez used the word ‘negro’ five times during an argument and concluded that the Uruguayan’s testimony was unreliable and inconsistent. Liverpool continued to protest his innocence.
The controversy rumbled on when the teams next met, with Suarez appearing to snub Evra’s handshake before the match, leading to further condemnation.

VIDIC’S RED CARDS
Nemanja Vidic didn’t exactly have the best disciplinary record against Liverpool, having been sent off four times between 2008 and 2014.
The first came in a 2-1 loss for United at Anfield in September 2008, leading with the elbow in an aerial duel with Xabi Alonso and earning a second yellow card.
The Vidic dismissal that remains in the memory came in Liverpool’s 4-1 win at Old Trafford in March 2009 when he finally snapped after an afternoon of being tormented by Fernando Torres, bringing down Steven Gerrard and seeing red.
Further dismissals followed at Anfield in October 2009 – making it three in as many games – and then in Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Old Trafford in the depths of the Moyes era in March 2014.

KEANE AND FOWLER
This iconic photograph from the 1996 FA Cup Final sums up this fixture’s antagonism as Roy Keane and Robbie Fowler exchange words.
Hero worshipped at their respective clubs, there was no other contest they enjoyed more.
It was United’s day, winning 1-0 thanks to a late Eric Cantona winner and completing the Double for the second time in three seasons.

GERRARD’S RAPID RED
The 16th – and most recent – red card in this fixture came back in March when Steven Gerrard, facing United for the final time in a Red shirt, was dismissed just 38 seconds after coming on as a substitute.
The Liverpool skipper stamped on Ander Herrera, leaving referee Martin Atkinson little choice.

There have been plenty of confrontations between the two sets of players over the years but the March 2011 meeting at Anfield seemed to specialise in them.
There was one after Jamie Carragher’s x-rated challenge on Nani and also when Rafael da Silva unwisely decided to pick a fight with the whole Liverpool side.

NEVILLE VS THE SCOUSERS
Gary Neville was never too fond of Liverpool Football Club, nor the city of Liverpool, nor the people of Liverpool.
Never the most popular figure on Merseyside, things escalated in 2006 when Neville marked Rio Ferdinand’s late winner at Old Trafford by running to the away section and kissing the badge on his shirt.
Various outspoken comments about Liverpool and clashes with Jamie Carragher, now his co-pundit on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, did little to repair the damage.

And Neville’s many clashes with Liverpool favourite Carragher during their playing days did little to improve relations
RAFA’S ‘FACTS’ RANT
In one of the most surreal moments in Premier League history, Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez in January 2009 decided to launch an extraordinary critique of Sir Alex Ferguson.
During a rant that left many questioning the Spaniard’s sanity, he claimed Ferguson was the only manager in the Premier League who could escape punishment over disciplinary breaches, accused the Scot of playing ‘mind games’ because he was scared of Liverpool’s challenge and even suggested his United counterpart arranged the fixture list.
The infamous ‘facts’ speech was met with widespread ridicule.. All of a sudden, United look rattled and Irwin is shown a second yellow card by referee David Elleray for booting the ball away in an attempt to wind down the clock.
It proves costly, with United old boy Paul Ince popping up to equalise in the dying moments. An expensive fit of rage for one Liverpool fan.

IRWIN SEES RED
May 1999 and Manchester United are closing in on their famous Treble triumph. Liverpool are determined to halt the trophy charge.
In a pulsating game played out to a febrile Anfield atmosphere, United take a two-goal lead through Dwight Yorke’s header and a Denis Irwin penalty.
But Liverpool rally and Jamie Redknapp halves the deficit midway through the second-half. United won the match 1-0 and lifted the trophy
SHELVEY AND FERGUSON
It was September 2012 and the Anfield fixture was played against the backdrop of the landmark publication of findings of an independent panel investigating the Hillsborough Disaster, raising hopes that justice might finally be achieved for ‘the 96′.
Before the match, United legend Sir Bobby Charlton presented flowers to Liverpool’s record scorer Ian Rush as opposing captains Gerrard and Ryan Giggs released 96 red balloons in memory of those who lost their lives.
But the goodwill went out the window on 39 minutes when Jonjo Shelvey lunged in two-footed at Jonny Evans and was shown a straight red card. And when his under-struck 25-yarder squirmed under Jerzy Dudek in the 21st minute, he knew how he was going to celebrate.
Running to the Kop, Rooney cupped his ears and was pelted with all kinds of objects, among them a mobile phone

Stossel: My political advice for 2016? Place your bets
January 27, 2017
Presidential nominees are not yet taking up space in most people’s minds.
Right now, bettors know that Trump, even though he is ahead in polls, is unlikely to be the nominee. But when it was publicized, outraged Sens. They picked Romney. Ted Cruz comes in second. They’re not perfect, of course, but they’re better than everything else.
Think the odds are wrong? Put your money where your mouth is! You could win money.
Despite bettors’ good track record, few people know about the odds or how they’re created. Likewise, bettors anticipated the Obama victory that many polls and pundits missed.
The odds on the big unrestricted m88 asia market in England, Betfair.com, are much more informative. It shows the odds more clearly and will automatically update them every five minutes.
Pundits have a terrible track record. Yikes!
When a polling company reaches the rare person willing to talk to a stranger on the phone, chances are that person is not well-informed about politics. “Who do I support for the nomination? Uh, who’s running? I’m embarrassed! Oh, yes, Donald Trump!”
John Stossel is the author of “No They Can’t! Why Government Fails — But Individuals Succeed.” Stossel appears regularly on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network providing signature analysis. Patrick Leahy and Orrin Hatch complained the Hollywood stock exchange would lead to “speculation that is even more risky than the typical financial product.”
Don’t trust polls or pundits. You think a lot about politics. If Trump wins, everyone who owns that share gets $1. … Most Americans don’t.
That’s why the Department of Defense once asked Hanson to create a market to predict things like wars and terrorism. That implies Trump has a 23 percent chance of winning the nomination.
Polls are better, but not much. It’s not even close.”
But the markets disappeared because America’s elites don’t like the idea of ordinary folks betting on important events.
Unfortunately, American politicians banned political prediction markets, with a few exceptions, like PredictIt.com. Since you read this column, you are different from most voters. Ron Wyden and Byron Dorgan held a news conference to say “encouraging people to bet on and make money from atrocities … Newspapers ran headlines like “Betting Odds on Roosevelt Rise to 7 to 1.”
Sadly, Hillary Clinton is a 95 percent favorite to win the Democratic nomination and has a 55 percent chance of becoming our next president. Last election, Newt Gingrich and Dick Morris forecast a Romney “landslide.” Rush Limbaugh said, “All my thinking says Romney big. Trump and Jeb Bush are third and fourth.
But people who bet knew better. Here’s how: computers average bets made on “prediction markets,” where traders buy and sell shares — like stocks — on each candidate. needs to be stopped immediately.”
Want to know who the next president will be?
A few years later, politicians killed a prediction market that would merely have let people bet on the success of Hollywood films. Betting odds at ElectionBettingOdds.com are the best predictor of who will win any election.
Polls reveal only a snapshot of current opinion. As I write, a share of Donald Trump winning the GOP nomination effectively costs 23 cents. University of North Carolina researchers found that from 1868 to 1940, prediction markets “did a remarkable job forecasting elections.” More than $100 million was bet, sometimes exceeding the value of shares changing hands on Wall Street. European prediction markets are good at predicting Oscar winners, weather disasters, even “American Idol” winners. That’s because you are not normal. Marco Rubio is the favorite. Stock markets, commodity markets, insurance was banned.”
That’s dumb, because nothing is better at predicting the future. But candidates’ odds are somewhat off on that site because bettors may not trade more than $850 per candidate.
Economist Robin Hanson says, “All our familiar financial institutions were once banned as illegal gambling. Sens. In 2011, Rick Perry led the polls for the GOP nomination with Trump-like 31 percent support. Click here for more information on John Stossel.
Fortunately, American politicians don’t control the entire world, so I offer you the most accurate presidential race odds: ElectionBettingOdds.com.
. By December, Newt Gingrich.
People think about food, sex, money, friends, jobs, success, family, health, religion, sports, fashion, video games, money, sex, food (I know I repeated those last three, but that’s where most people’s heads are). By October, Herman Cain was ahead. But so what? In a free country, adults ought to be allowed to speculate.
Prediction markets have a long track record. Betfair posts those odds in arcane gambling formulas, so producer Maxim Lott and I created the website ElectionBettingOdds.com
GBGC – Asia Has 10 of the Worldâs Largest Casinos

Some thirty nine states have casino gambling of some kind and twenty

limited supply of gambling facilities it must come as no surprise that
of the world’s biggest casinos by gambling revenue are located in Asia. US

Crown Melbourne at $1.47 billion was nudged into eleventh place by
Resorts World Sentosa (10th) but 12th Genting

However the United States is still the largest casino market in world.
Warwick Bartlett, GBGC’s Chief Executive said “By contrast the entire
casino industry of the United Kingdom produce a gross gaming yield of
US$1.8 billion which would place all 146 casinos in only tenth position

its archaic casino regulation and recognise that gambling tourism,
particularly in London could become a major source of revenue for the

Sports Bettor Billy Walter’s Winning Streak
January 24, 2017
Had no air conditioning.
Asked what his biggest win was on a round of golf, Walters said, “Probably a million bucks, around a million dollars.”
“Ten,” McCarlie said.
But after 30 years of unprecedented success, the man who calls himself a Kentucky hillbilly agreed for the first time to open the door into his betting life in Las Vegas – a life he describes as one long hustle – in betting parlors, in pool rooms and on the golf course.
“When I met him, he was driving an old Cadillac full of bullet holes. He used to make his living off it. Now, he’s a very wealthy man,” Walters replied.

Extra: The $3.5 Million Bet
“Yes. Believe me,” McCarlie added.
“How much money have you taken off him m88 over the years?” Logan asked.
When it comes to gambling, everybody knows the house has the advantage. And he showed us how the hustle worked with Gene McCarlie, an old friend and casino owner.
“Who’s the better golfer?” correspondent Lara Logan asked Walters and McCarlie on a golf course.
Walters just missed a 60-foot putt, but after only three holes, he was up $17,000.
© 2011 CBS. So, how does a professional gambler approach the big game?
“By far. Most bettors come to a sports book inside the casino, to lay their bets, wagering $2.5 billion dollars every year. Small potatoes for Walters.
“That’s a lot of money,” Logan remarked.
The Super Bowl: America’s Biggest Bet
More people bet on the Super Bowl than any other sporting event.
He bets on football and basketball, is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and has been so successful that many Las Vegas bookmakers are afraid to even take his bets.
“I’ll take 15,” Walters countered.
He gambled on the Super Bowl last year and won $3.5 million. I lost it all in the Horseshoe Hotel playing blackjack before I went to bed,” he replied.
Asked if there’s anything he doesn’t gamble on, Walters replied, “Not really.”
On the day we went along, the two buddies decided to play for $5,000 a hole, with a few side bets along the way. Walters has been almost as elusive as Howard Hughes, avoiding publicity, reluctant to reveal his secrets. I never got to bed to with it. . But there are some high rollers who consistently win, and it’s hard to find anyone better at winning than Billy Walters. All rights reserved.
“Probably $400,000,” Walters said.
“He is,” both men replied simultaneously, laughing.
“What’s the price?” Walters asked.
“Five-to-one for birdie,” McCarlie replied.
“What’s the most you’ve ever made on a hole?” Logan asked.
“You got it for a dime!” Walters agreed.
When Walters golfs, it’s mostly for fun. Nevada is the only state in the country where taking bets on individual games is legal
âHow to Choose the Right Sportsbook!â
January 6, 2017
I would say that US bettors are at most risk since they are generally forced to bet at offshore sportsbooks due to legality issues. Therefore you should think of the sportsbook you are considering as a bank – a place that you intend to keep funds long term.
Read press articles as opposed to reviews – reviews are usually written by the sportsbook’s marketing team.
Test run the software by joining and playing for free – most sportsbooks offer this facility.
Find out if your funds are insured or separated in ESCROW accounts so that if the sportsbook company goes under – your funds are still safe.
Find out if the sportsbook is independently audited.
How long has the operation been online – three to four years is usually a good marker as a minimum.
Test out the customer services to see if they meet your standards or the standards they promise you.
If you know about betting already, then check some of their odds and lines – are they in keeping with what you would expect? Some less scrupulous sportsbooks offer very attractive prices to lure unsuspecting bettors.
Find out if the sportsbook is part of a larger group of companies. I have had at least three online sportsbooks go broke on me – luckily my losses were kept to a few thousand dollars – that may sound a lot but it could have been a lot worse.
So what do you look for: . Often these website owners know nothing about betting, do not hold accounts with the sportsbooks they are advertising and have not researched the companies they are involved with.
Not all the above are critical – but help towards finding a secure book. I also like SportingBet (www.SBSportsbook.com) who take US customers and cater for global sports.
“How to Choose the Right Sportsbook!”
by: Daniel B. Options should be available that are ‘free’ or where the sportsbook absorbs the charges. But ask yourself ; “how easy is it to get access to my money and how much does it cost?”
So you have decided to start betting online – or maybe you just want to find a new trustworthy sportsbook – what do you need to look out for?
If you have already have an account with a sportsbook watch out for lapses in customer service and slowness of payment – these can be signs that the company could be in trouble.

The UK has a number of established books including William Hill, Ladbrokes, Coral, and Victor Chandler.
Well I am in a position to speak from some experience – I did at one time hold accounts with about sixty bookmakers in Europe, UK, Australia and offshore – the latter catering mainly to the US market. King
It is not that easy finding a reputable sportsbook – partly because the web is populated by website owners who will sing the praises m88 indonesia of a sportsbook or casino simply because they earn revenue from signing up customers via an affiliate program. These vary quite a bit from book to book. The offshore books with whom I work are top grade but it is in the offshore environment that problems occasionally occur. It is, therefore, critical that those US customers put in the research before signing up.

Should College Football Be Eliminated?
September 11, 2016
Although this incident might not have been directly related to college football in general, it brought the media’s attention to the existence of college football programs, and created space to discuss the pros and cons of these programs.
One of the scandalous elements of the Penn State affair was the role of head coach Joe Paterno. Bigger sports, like football and basketball, seem to be in a league of their own. Then-assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was accused in 2011 of having sexually abused several young boys. Universities should be focusing on academics and education, instead of sports, some say.
Other College Sports
Many of the arguments supporting the abolition of college football could also be applied to other sports at the college level. Paterno was fired and died of lung cancer soon after. Universities promote their football programs in order to protect this revenue source–so much so, that some colleges are known more for their football programs than for their academic programs. That’s why, the sport is so popular at the college level, which is why it is such a big money-maker for universities. Additionally, young athletes might have to go directly to the professional level, rather than attending college and earning degrees. Even people with no ties to universities are interested in college football, and consider it a favorite pastime. For many universities, football is an important source of revenue, and helps them maintain state-of-the-art facilities, updated buildings, and well-kept grounds. Amidst rising concern about player safety and the recent spate of scandals, these voices seem to be getting stronger by the day.. This is one argument in favor of banning college football.
Of course, banning college football is probably not a very popular idea among the general public. If these sports programs can’t be scaled back to a more appropriate level, perhaps they should be eliminated altogether.
Do We Foresee a Ban in the Near Future?
In more than 20 years I’ve spent studying the issue, I have yet to hear a convincing argument that college football has anything do with what is presumably the primary purpose of higher education: academics.
–H.G. They serve mainly as extracurricular activities for students, and foster healthy intercollegiate competition. Some athletic programs are relatively small, and do not have a large impact on how universities function. This incident caused some people to question the large amount of power football coaches have at many American universities. Some people argue that this is counter to the purpose and intent of the university system. Some people say that, in schools with large football programs, coaches are overpaid, and have too much influence over what goes on at the schools. They have gone beyond extracurricular, and have become a sort of secondary function of their own. Many college football players go on to join the NFL, and football provides a way for students, staff, and alumni, to express their school pride, and to connect with the campus community.
Despite this long-standing tradition, some people are opposed to college football, and think it should be banned. Some people accused Paterno of sheltering Sandusky from punishment, claiming that he and other high-level university officials knew about the illicit behavior, and did nothing. Bissinger
The Penn State Scandal
The arguments in favor of banning football are widely varied, but they came to light after several college football related scandals, including the Penn State child sex abuse scandal. Football and Funding
The issue of money extends beyond just the salaries of college football coaches. This would probably not be an improvement in the lives of professional football players.
Overall, it seems unlikely that college football is going away any time soon, but the issue might force us to think about the ways that college athletic departments could be improved.
Why Should College Football be Eliminated?
College football is a time-honored American tradition. Millions of people would be sorely disappointed if college football went away. Even Jack Kerouac, the famous Beat Generation writer of On the Road and The Dharma Bums, played football at Columbia University, before dropping out

Baseball Handicapping Formula – How To Become Great at Baseball Handicapping
September 10, 2016
I am a true believe that anyone can be the best baseball handicapper if they so desire. Baseball handicapping is not all based on skill. You just start analyzing ball games and select your winners. You might have a nice run for a week, start thinking you have the best system in the world then lose the next 10 games. Let’s make it simple and say that a baseball handicapper is a person that analyzes two baseball teams and attempt to picks the winner.. They must be up to date with all trades, injuries, trends and current statistics. Don’t confuse being lucky for being good.
I would define the best baseball handicapper a one who is truly knowledgeable on the sports. The only way to test a formula is to use through an entire baseball season. Luck has a lot to do with it. That is the easy part just about all handicappers claim to be the best.
Now a proven winning formula is mandatory. Many get lucky but luck only happens occasional. The only way to fully grade a handicappers picks is over the entire season.
Now you are probably reading this article because you want to know who is best. Be consistent with your bets and use proper money management and you will the best baseball handicapper.

The best baseball handicappers in one who thoroughly follows the game, uses a proven system along with all those miscellaneous variables to determine their selections. Part of being a good handicapper is promoting yourself as one. Baseball season is very long and there are many ups and downs for every team. My feelings on this are not one individual can be giving that title. This formula must be battle tested. It is better to be lucky than be good, right. There is no government rating nor is there any real tracking system. Anyone can create a formula and start using it, but it has to be tested.
The fact is anyone can claim to be good at baseball handicapping. For effective baseball handicapping you need to follow a formula. A handicapper that just picks games without close examination is one that I would avoid. Remember to distinguish the difference between just lucky and picking the right side. There is no license or certification required. Then there are the side variable such as weather conditions, disputes among the players sand mental state of the players
