After looking at Fortuna’s tips and checking to see which sports betting site is offering the best tips I’ve decided to place a bet on Adelaide to beat the Giants using Sportsbet as my online betting agent. I always provide proof of all bets I place online and you can see proof of this weeks bet by clicking on this link.

You may notice that both Bet365 and William Hill don’t have any odds for the Carlton vs Richmond game. I’m afraid this is my fault as while I’m writing this post the game is actually playing in the background. Yep, this years AFL just sort of snuck up on me. Heck, you would have thought that Fortuna would have given me a heads up wouldn’t you? :tongue_out:

Good luck guys with this weeks footy tips.

 


Maria SharapovaThe last time I wrote about Maria Sharapova was when she featured as a Hot Sports Babe. Since then she’s been banned from tennis as a drug cheat. As her doping ban nears a close she would have to fight her way up the ladder just to be included in a tournament. That is of course unless she’s offered a wildcard!

Much to the disappointment of many a tennis fan, and some big name tennis players, Maria Sharapova has been offered a wild card at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.

The question is should she be offered a wild card or should she be forced to fight through the ranks for another chance at a tournament.? Why even would she even be offered a wildcard? After all one should be discouraging drug cheats not offering them crumbs to give them a leg up, right?

Why Maria Sharapova Is Offered A Wildcard.

According to her agent, Max Eisenbud, ‘The interest has been there, claimed Eisenbud. “Every WTA tournament called me, every single one,” he said.’

Personally I reckon it’s purely a business decision. Tournament officials obviously believe that Maria Sharapova will be a draw card. I’m sure more people will come to watch her play than would avoid attending because of her presence. Everyone involved wants their tournament to be a success and those offering Maria a wildcard obviously believe she will help to secure that success.

Former No.1 Chrissie Evert supports the wildcards being offered saying, “Maria has served her term and this decision of playing is really within the rule as far as the wild card entry,” Evert told the media. “I remember many, many weeks I started out on a Wednesday playing a match so it’s not like first rounds aren’t on Wednesday.”

Me, I’m more than happy to have her back. Who knows, with the break she was forced to have Sharapova may even be really successful.

What’s your feelings on her being offered all these wildcards.
