    This is definitely not the case. In the lounge I was in at Spurs, the wifi was quicker than I get it through my broadband at home!
    Actually yes I forgot about Spurs new ground, but they are one of a very small minority

      I am interested in what information they can give that wouldnít be as obvious on a stream or live match. Care to enlighten me?

      I donít understand why it is considered a problem if people pass info from grounds, itís not like they can influence what is going on on the pitch?

      Clearly Iím missing something.
      Presumably the news story about a Hull fan being ordered to stop sending texts during a match recently passed you by? Discussed in this thread: https://www.northstandchat.com/showt...ed-for-texting

      Nope, I did see it but I still don’t understand what it is he could have been doing or could have seen that could possibly have any influence on what was going on the pitch.

      To put it another way what possible benefit would I have by being at a match that is going to net me or anybody else money on a bet? Just one example would be good?

      I dunno as I don't bet but it isn't about influencing the activity on the pitch and instead gaining some sort of knowledge to influence spot betting (such as time of first sub or something). Really you'd need the people that made the rule to explain why and I doubt they're regulars on NSC.

      Quite simply, its timing.

      Someone sending an SMS text notification of an event in a game can be slightly ahead of when it 'officially' goes out as an update to the betting sites. So I could be sat there with a bet primed on my computer that there's going to be a red card in the game. Matey at the game texts that someone has just been sent off, and BOOM, hit click, get that bet on a FRACTION before the news has been cascaded and updated onto all the betting sites, and see the bet pay off.

      Highly unethical of course. It makes me feel SO sorry for those poor bookies, it really does.

      Hmm, a bet placed AFTER the real time sending off would be paid out? You surprise me, but I really do know feck all about betting.

      I wouldn't pretend to know the technicalties behind how it is achieved, but its not much of a stretch to consider computerised algorithms set up to instantly exploit split-second events via a text. The betting companies are clearly spooked enough by this to be putting 'heavies' into stadiums to nab anyone they suspect of providing live in-game updates that can be exploited in this way.
