If anyone wants to discuss any upcoming sporting event.

Don't post anything to do with gambling on these sporting events please.

    One less thread to go in #RIPTheBettingLounge

    Sucks, I can kinda guess why it's been shut though(the games a 3+ & there's minors on this forum, so we can't be seen to endorse gambling). That's how I see it anyway, have PM'd Paul just asking for more reasoning.

    A sad day when one of the most active lounges dies.

    Don't see how we're hurting anyone, not like you can open an account unless you're 18. And if you're willing to go to the point we're you're using other people's names/details/card details etc. then it's your own compulsive gambling problem and eejoticness as opposed to the forum's fault.

    That's problem with **** like this and society in general, too much molly coddling and **** to everyone with the likes of this and health and safety. If you do something stupid it's your own problem and you've got to deal with it, not blame it on others for your own faults.

    It's not like we're the **** TWE/GYTO where we're posting bookie affiliate links every hour. Annoying it's been closed. Just put a disclaimer in the OP saying if you follow any of this it's your own fault, EA take no responsibility etc. for following eejits like me gambling.

    It just seemed a bit strange that it suddenly happened, the lounge had been going for a good few years now with no issues. I understand why but I'd have thought the lounge would have never got off the ground if it had been such an issue.

    Ye could sense something brewing with Adam posting something about the name having to be changed.

    You could argue threads discussing fighting and games like GTA are promoting violence, not good for a 3+ game.

    From my presumptions(underage on the forum, endorsing gambling, nepenthez court case with fifa coin gambling etc), I can see the logic as to why its had to be shut, but like lard said we've been going years and it's a core group of us(well, dead recently with only a handful of us posting).

    Would defo like to know the genuine reasoning behind the closure. Would also like to keep this thread open as a discussion of sports(some of us do actually watch horse racing without having a flutter!)

    I thought that might have been to do with https://www.punterslounge.com/ but never got a reply when I questioned it

    Nobody really knew why, we just got told it was because of a 'legal' reason. They don't really care and just wanted gambling off their forum I think.

    It's political correctness gone mad

    There against gambling but not scamming. Maybe they need to take a long hard look in the mirror, there happy to take advantage of young impressionable kids with new cards and desperate attempts at keeping people interested in their game.

    So when are the pitchforks and torches going to come out against mtg, yugioh, pokemon, topps, 2k sports and every other tcg ever created, because they all work in damn near the same way?

    It makes sense for them to scrub their site of anything related to gambling, not that a forum thread would have any genuine bearing on the legal case against the youtuber, but it's just better that they separate themselves and their community from genuine gambling.
