JAMIE REDKNAPP INVESTIGATES WIDELY-DETESTED KEYBOARD WARRIORS

New Paddy Power series sees Redknapp chance his arm as documentary maker to learn about the origins of one of the worst things to happen to football

Footballer-turned-pundit, Jamie Redknapp, is now stepping into the world of hard-hitting documentaries to tackle one of the biggest issues in the modern-day game…the half-and-half scarf.

Paddy Power’s Jamie Redknapp Investigates is a new series that will see the former Liverpool and Spurs legend get to the bottom of the things that really annoy football fans about the modern game.

Episode one sees Redknapp get to the bottom of half-and-half scarves – the ghastly neckwear issue, described by fans he interviews as “Filth”, “Foul” and “So sh*t”.

In the first of a three part series – with episodes two and three released over the fortnight – Redknapp reveals the industry is now worth “over half a billion pounds” and tracks down the inventor of the half-and-half scarf.

The inventor, Brian, explains that the inspiration behind joining two separate scarves together was his own divorce, after his wife cut everything he owned in half.

Sewing his Arsenal and Holland neckwear together, Brian created the world’s first half-and-half scarf – which rather unfortunately reads “Arse land”.

But, at what cost? “Half-and-half scarves have a very short shelf life,” says Redknapp’s next interviewee – environmental activist, Lisa.

Discarded items can unfortunately find their way into nature, with Lisa reporting sightings of a baboon wearing a scarf featuring Tony Pulis at one end Sean Dyche at the other. Although Lisa does say that there aren’t health implications for the animals, they “just look really stupid”.

Redknapp then returns to see Brian once more as he’s told there’s a gift waiting for him. And, after showing off his diversified portfolio (including Manchester United and Liverpool half-and-half facemasks), the inventor gives the former England international his present.

Unfortunately, the Redknapp edition scarf features Harry at one end but the wrong Jamie at the other – Jamie Vardy.

Episode two of Paddy Power’s Jamie Redknapp Investigates, released next Friday, will see Jamie taking on Twitter trolls.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Forget diving, dodgy VAR calls and people leaving early – half-and-half scarves are the biggest disgrace in football right now. So, we put our best man on the case to investigate and uncover the ugly truth about this scourge of modern football that we know annoys all proper football fans across the country.

“Because there are some things that just don’t look right together, like pasta and ketchup or Tottenham and trophies.”

Swedish Operator ATG Calls for Stronger Action Against Illegal Market

Published

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Swedish gambling operator Aktiebolaget Trav och Galopp (ATG) has called for stronger action against the illegal market, with a new report claiming there has been another drop in the channelisation rate.

ATG’s Q1 report on the movement of players towards the legal market puts the channelisation rate at between 68% and 81%, a reduction from 69% to 82% in Q4 2023.

The report found that the unlicensed market in Sweden is worth between SEK3.7bn (£) and SEK7.4bn (£) per year and that website traffic to unlicensed operators has increased tenfold since 2019.

None of the top 20 sites with the highest traffic during the quarter were included on the regulator’s prohibition list, ATG added, with 18 out of 20 using the same platform providers as licensed operators.

ATG CEO Hasse Lord Skarplöth labelled the developments “deeply concerning” and called for a rethink of the Swedish regulations on illegal gaming to make it illegal for unlicensed companies to operate in Sweden.

The current regulations make it illegal for unlicensed operators to market gaming products towards players.

Skarplöth said: “The prohibition on promotion and targeting criteria clearly do not serve as protection for the most vulnerable groups and to achieve good channelling.

“It is time to do exactly what the two latest inquiries by Håkan Hallstedt and Gunnar Larsson have proposed, namely to make it illegal to offer unlicensed gambling in Sweden regardless of targeting criteria.”
