It was light outside when they left the awards?

Or might the game of face squishing, which we all enjoy, in the car might be more recent?

Of course if he makes the BBC shortlist he wins but that's the gamble. We know what the BBC are like.

No, the face squishing in the car park was completely separate, & clearly just bants. Think that photo surfaced to help suggest the whole thing was innocent.

Just made it worse by posting this. Now we all know there was substance to it. Grin

Gingers eh!

I'm more concerned with the quality of catering at these upmarket award functions, that mean you have to go to for a cheap crappy burger after >

Telegraph sports section today was very dismissive of the Guido ‘scoop’. Besides, he is a national treasure who single-handedly won the World Cup and prevented us getting hammered in the Ashses series.

No.  It is related, as he'd never win man of steel unless they were top 5.

It is a bit harsh paying out on two singles.  The least they should pay should be £100 at the man of steel price of 25/1.  Maybe a bit more for the small chance they don't get top 5 when he gets man of steel.

Edit.  Just checked this, the last man of steel from a non top 5 club was 2011.

Seems total BS to me. If you don't have to even be in the final to win, then it's not related, only in as much as it's the same team. He could have missed the match ffs. Usual bookie tricks.

It is decided over the season, so it is only likely to be won by a Salford player if they have a really good season.   I think you can argue about how related it is, but it is definitely related.  If you priced up both events happening together you'd make it shorter than the combined odds.  It is a bit like taking a combined top goal scorer/win the league price on the football.

I do think the settlement is a bit silly, as you can't possibly claim that the related price os lower than the price of one of the events happening, which is effectively what Hills do by splitting the stake.   I think the answer should be about £100 at 33/1.

Certainly a compromise should be made and to only offer two singles is a bit scummy

Got to agree with this, but i'd remove the "a bit".  It is absolutely clear that the punter wanted to bet on both outcomes combined.

This piece, first published 6 months ago, just popped up on Twitter.

Quite interesting to those like me who sometimes struggle to choose between (say) a quarter 3 places or a fifth 4 places.

Ha, thanks for that Doobs.

It is rather odd that it's known as "Lol", which in fact stands for "League of Legends" I believe.

It's well popular though, both Online & Live.

I have been in and out all day.   Well impessed you came back so quickly.   I assume the team picked is some kind of vote?   Why do they get banned and do we ignord Pantheon because Syndra aren't that great at it?

Syndra is one of 20 champions picked or banned in each 5v5 game.

Pantheon probably 1.01 to be most banned so I guess they just did a market without him in it.
