Totally different. Somewhere else in this thread someone contacted B365 and they confirmed they would pay out IF a team received a points deduction during the season and were relegated 

 

It would be the Wednesday way though wouldn't it... We go down and the only solace some of us have is a few quid from winning our bets. Then the bookies find a loophole to wriggle out of paying up and we have double the woe.

 

In fact, is there anywhere where we can bet on that exact scenario from happening? I'd put money on that!

Anyone who’s watched us recently and saw the starting line up yesterday knew that odds of 3-1 for Reading to win were way out from where they should have been.

Absolutely.  

Made quite a few quid this week.

 

Betting on Wednesday losing right now is like printing money. 

 

Luton were 13-5, then reading were 3-1.

 

Birmingham are 13-8.

 

Easy money.

This won't be settled this season so will be no points deduction, Derby's probably will and what they have been doing is far worse. They haven't just broke FFP they have absolutely smashed it.

We won’t see odds like those again for the opposition this season. Charlton at home is possibly the only game we’ll go into as bookies favourites now.

 

Can’t see me backing Birmingham at that price, they’re not massively overpriced. If Luongo, Fox and Reach come back next week we should be better. 
 

If Westwood, Hutchinson and Fletcher came back we’d be a lot stronger but that doesn’t look like happening soon

ST on north, renewed for next season

 

missed 4 or 5 away games so far

 

i had a tenner on reading winning yesterday purely on the fact we're playing rubbish

 

( i also had a tenner on various Wednesday win scenarios)

 

i've bet on us being relegated, at them odds and our current form and EFL charges looming its daft not too

 

If they come off i'm up 1200 quid, which means my ST will be paid for for the 21/22 season

 

if we don't get relegated i've lost 20 quid

 

20 quid i'm happy to lose to see us stop up



You tw at

If we’re “demoted” as punishment the bookies won’t pay out, if we are deducted points that leads to relegation then they will pay out.

No way getting relegated this year, whatever outcome of the arbitration this month, this will run and run for years if DC wishes...

 

This case could crop up in a few hearings on FFP...

Basically at last resort can contest that nature of governing body appointing the disapliniary panel is inherently unfair and prejudiced

Even without the points deduction that's the only direction we're heading in the league. It'll be close come April looking at the march fixtures

Really can’t believe what I’m reading on here, how anyone could back again there own team and especially to be relegated is simply beyond me. I never could and never would, if I was so intent on having a wager I wouldn’t care what it was but I’d find something else.

Cushions the blow of relegation. If we stay up fantastic, if we don’t at least I’ve made a bit of money.

Quite easy really. Know loads who bet 1k+ on Hull in the Play Off Final as a small sweetener if we messed it up. Have to bet in the knowledge you'd be 100% happy to lose the cash though.

Doesn't impact the performance, might buy you a few drinks to forget the results though, if not more

Well gaining a few pints as a result of Wednesdays demise certainly wouldn’t console me in anyway, nor would a few hundred quid, I for one would be absolutely gutted and certainly not celebrating any form of consolation.

I highly doubt there would be any celebration.

 

Stop being so melodramatic.

The club would be mad to take legal steps to make this run for years with endless appeals and trying other avenues.
The cloud of uncertainty hanging over the club for this to run and run would be worse than the original points deduction with no guarantee of success.
