Paddy Power today announced they are taking bets on the next Inter County Board to be fined as a result of their teams field fighting.
This new GAA betting initiative was prompted by the dramatic increase in players fighting during games, witnessed as recently as last Sunday’s National League fixture between Monaghan and Kildare which resulted in both County Boards receiving hefty €5,000 fines.
Cork County Board have been installed as Paddy Power’s 10/1 favourites to pick up the next fine for players fighting followed by Dublin at 10/1 and Armagh at 12/1.
Paddy Power himself commented “Player fighting has become an unfortunate but unquestionably more frequent part of the modern game and as such, if you can’t get away from it, why can’t you bet on it?”
