Latest on Bury.  League seem to be saying 14 days or you are no longer a member of the EFL, so effectively liquidation I suppose.

"he was accused of being a “gamblers informant” "

That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. It's not as though he would be privy to sensitive information.

I think it's a timing scam for in play bets where they can get the information out quicker than whatever the official sources the bookies use.

certainly saw a program on it in tennis : an informant indicating which player scored a point. iirc it's not illegal at all but obviously the venue has the right to eject you as it's against t&c.

I'd still tell security to do one though

Some Asian gambling syndicates had people at games in the past, sending them live updates to exploit minute delays in in-play betting systems. I assume they've cut that out by now though.

Maybe I'm being a bit dim, which wouldn't be the first time, but why the need to have somebody in the crowd when they can just watch it on iFollow or listen on the radio?

I was watching Grimsby v Bradford yesterday. I had Grimsby down for a win. I was also locked in to Skybet and iFollow was nearly 3 minutes behind Skybet.

I've always found the ipnlay match graphics interesting. Especially Bet365's where not only to the show a team attacking and shooting but they also follow the path of the ball.
Its always intrigued me how they do it, its one thing for the big leagues, but how do they get this data for say the Moldovan 5th division reserve matches

Are you sure that type of information is even accurate?

The days when scams such as this against the bookies were viable are well past https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_Future

Good film though...
