I applaud this rule change, it’s certainly the right one.
But, IMHO, the IFPA is sending slightly mixed messages when they publish blog posts linking to the odds. Don’t gamble on this, says the rules, but the governing body is letting you know what the odds are. I know that a lot of times any press is good press, but I don’t think its good for competitive pinball to promote that its being gambled on. I’m not a prude, its fine that people bet on sports and games, but I don’t think the IFPA should promote that it is.
I’m also not at all still mad i’m the ‘field’
