Posted on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 by "T".
Russian President Vladimir Putin has asked the Russian Government to force bookmakers to become sponsors of sporting events that involves Russian teams and athletes taking part in the event. The law is likely to be presented during the middle of this year. In a document released by the official Kremlin website, it states: "The federal bill should envisage establishing duties of organizers of gam[...]   Read more » Vladimir Putin Forces Bookies to Sponsor Russian Sporting Events

This decision is brilliant. It will surely take money from the gamblers and redirect it towards athletes and teams but lets be honest here, in the long run most gamblers lose anyway. With a significant number of bookmakers(25), they wont be able to increase their vig to compensate for the sponsorships. Instead with the patches and advertising boards displayed at the sporting events they will attract new recreational players who will foot the bill. Well played Vladimir.

Having someone or some company to be forced to do something never seems reasonable, but if it's something turned into a law, then everyone will have to do it. So i am forced to say i agree with this. It's just like the countries that make online poker rooms to work in their countries according with their laws. Each country have different rules, and internet isn't a world appart from the real world, it's a virtual world ruled by the countries where the domains are instaled and where the companys can act (i'm not saying i agree, just stating a fact).

well actually i don't see this as a stupid decision at all, which in itself is a surprise of unprecedented magnitude. some of sports betting money going back to sports- logical enough, and probably at some less popular sports like mosquito's hunting a very important source of revenue.

They just in need for more sources (2 all those politically backed sportsteams which are run by business oligarchs) because of the sinking oil prices and the overall bad health of the russian economy. Nothing new here.

Someone needs to pay for those sweaty man chasing ball to compete in a surrogate war to show their masculinity and mating potential. Another thing is that the masses have this tribal feeling for their team, while if they were born in another city they would be a hardcore fanatic of another club. This form of unity and competing for your "village/tribe" is a deep primordial feeling embedded in the human DNA.
The Romans used theaters and arenas to distract people's attention and fanaticism towards these things, so they would not instead of rebel against the empire.

tl;dr Sports, hahaha

So! Mr Putin is looking to use some of the money made by bookies to support sports in the country. This is a pretty good idea. I would imagine the vast majority of money made by bookies comes from sport betting therefore it seems a really sensible suggestion.

Not sure where I stand on this, he is such a dictator that anything he does seems wrong, although I am sure he does do some things right.

Time and history will tell I am sure.

This is a pretty good idea. He should make casinos pay too... They make even more money than bookmakers Smile

It seems like Vladimir Putin has been president of Russia forever... When was he elected for the first time? He can be re-elected as many times as he wants to over there? Seems pretty weird and open to corruption but if the guy is fair then it's good to keep him for a long time.

Here in Canada if we ever get a good PM he will be gone after 4 years Big Smile
