Of all the markets that could as bad taste, surely this takes the cake. Paddy Power were taking bets on which Anfield footballer would be burgled next. As if you need to provide incentives for Scouser criminals!
Liverpool condemn Paddy Power bets on player burglaries
After furious protests from fans and Liverpool FC, Paddy Power initially defended the bets as "tongue-in-cheek fun", but the online bookmaker has now agreed to suspend betting.
On Wednesday a Liverpool spokesperson described the bookmaker's stunt as "completely tasteless and disgraceful."
Bear in mind here, that Paddy Power were the official betting partner of Liverpool FC as well. Until today that is, when their agreement expires with a sour conclusion. It is believed that Betfair will be taking over 'official betting partner' status, adding to their blue-chip partners of Barcelona and Manchester United, all signed this season.
