Fixed-odds maximum bet 'could drop to £2'

The maximum stake for fixed-odds betting terminals could drop to as little as £2 under a government review. Currently, people can bet up to £100 every 20 seconds on the high-speed electronic casino games but proposals could limit that to between £2 and £50. The 12-week government consultation aims to reduce the risk of people suffering large losses and to tighten up advertising rules. Changes would hit UK gambling company revenue, put at £1.8bn last year. A good bet? The fixed-odds controversy ‘I lost £5k in 48 hours on betting ...

Browns' Jackson: Britt's key drop 'inexcusable'

9:44 PM ET BEREA, Ohio — The Cleveland Browns cannot afford to have Kenny Britt drop perfectly thrown passes in the open field. That’s the message from coach Hue Jackson, who was blunt in his assessment of Britt’s painful drop in the fourth quarter of the season-opening loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, calling it “inexcusable.” “… We can’t do that to a young quarterback because he needs guys to make as many plays for him as they can in this situation. I think Kenny gets that. He knows that is ...

EU nurse applicants drop by 96% since Brexit vote

There has been a sharp drop in nurses registering to work in the UK since the EU referendum, figures suggest. Last July, 1,304 nurses from the EU joined the Nursing and Midwifery Council register, compared to 46 in April this year, a fall of 96%. The Health Foundation said the findings could not be more stark and said they should act as a “wake-up call”.

AMD Suffers its Worst Stock Drop in Over a Decade, Despite Revenue Gains

AMD’s stock took an absolute beating yesterday in its first full day of trading since it announced its Q1 results. The stock fell by its largest percentage in 12 years, for a net drop of 24.23% during business hours. If the after-hours decline of $ 0.14 holds, the company could actually break the drop record it set back on January 11, 2005. Normally we avoid any kind of stock discussion, since it’s far outside our bailiwick. But a drop this big on the back of what we previously characterized as ...

10:51 AM ET Everybody’s mock draft was dead by 8:15 ET on Thursday night, which is fine. As it should be, really.

Not even the mock draft of San Francisco 49ers brain trust John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan’s wildest dreams featured the Chicago Bears trading them three picks to move up one spot so they ...
