Grey Cup this weekend in Canada, with the BC Lions having the rare opportunity to win the cup at home v the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Lions opened the season with five straight losses, and six losses in the first seven games, a run that included 20-25 and 17-30 defeats against Sunday's opponents. Since then, they have won 11 of 12, a record that is almost the opposite of Winnipeg, who won seven of their first eight, and since then have lost seven on their last eleven. The Lions are favourites at 1.39. For a team in form, playing at home, that looks value.

It's not just Betfair who have the occasional unplanned outage. Pinnacle was the target for a Denial of Service attack on Friday, with the site inaccessible for several hours.
Dear Sir,

We regret you are among the clients currently unable to reach our site. Pinnacle Sports is experiencing a DOS attack which, unfortunately, are becoming more prevalent events in all technology based industries.

Our IT Department is working diligently to resolve the issue and restore access to the site.

In other news, after being sent off in the game at Bastia last month, Lens’ Venezuelan defender Gabriel Cichero assaulted Bastia director Alain Seghi in the tunnel breaking his nose, jaw and eye socket. Banned until March, which seems a light sentence to me,
Cichero has refused to apologise, claiming that he is ‘an intelligent family man with God at his side’ and that he ‘reacted normally’ to the provocation he received from the Bastia contingent on his way to the dressing room.
Claiming to be intelligent with 'God at your side' is arguably something of an oxymoron, but anyway, it's fortunate that Cichero's a religious man or he might have really done some damage.
