    I saw that Joey Bartons solicitor has re-tweeted this article...

      Good to read a new slant on the Albion - in the NY Times no less.
      Although that'll be more to do with American sport realising it's cutting it's nose off to spite it's face where gambling is concerned.

      I still can't see private man Tony being all that comfortable with him and Star Lizard in the public eye.

      Hmmm. Well that's one way of looking at it. One could also argue that the Americans are a bit more principled than we are when it comes to gambling and sport. I'm not necessarily making that argument - but if I were I don't expect it would find too many supporters on here seeing as how we always feel we're morally superior to America in every respect.

      Nice read, and it shows how the Americans and the English view ownership and gambling companies.
      There it's not permitted to own a club if your involved in gambling, whereas here it's deemed ok if you follow the leagues secret rules.
      Thought it was weird that Bloom wasn't listed as a director of Star Lizard, and he gave another one of his companies a £30 mill interest free loan.
      A generous businessman.

      He is extremely secretive. Very few know the full extent of his wealth but I did hear he is the landlord / freehold for a lot of big office blocks along London Wall in the City. Mental if true

      Great read, thanks! I remember seeing TB at Sheffield Wednesday and noticed his trousers were frayed at the hem
      And on the train coming back from Nottingham he was sitting with supporters drinking cans of Red Stripe (I think) ... lager anyways

      You can gamble on American sport, gambling is as much the conversation, points spreads etc, as it is here it's just not as accessible.
      From the outside looking in, (I'm sure the Americans on here will put me right) I think the problem for America is their laws have managed to make them miss t'internet gambling on sport.

      Sure that means they don't have to be terrified by Ray Winston's giant head, but they know that's a massive cash cow that's just out of reach, although not for much longer.

      Another media source thinking that Tony has made all his money from one source. What about his property development arm?
