    Football Sub Forum Charter.

    1. This forum is for football related betting only. Horse & Greyhound racing now has its own sub forum and all other sports betting will be hosted in the main forum. Threads will be moved at the moderators discretion to the appropriate forum.

    2. The current rules on discussion during matches remains the same for now. We will however be discussing this with the Soccer mods with a view to finding a good middle ground for everyone.

    3. As with every forum on, there are rules, and breaking these rules could result in a warning or a ban. Do not do any of the following:

    1. Posting off topic. These threads will be deleted, and a ban may be handed out at the mods discretion.
    2. Outbursts of personal abuse/racism/hissy fits/sarcastic jibes/newbie bashing etc. will not be tolerated. These posts will be deleted, and for most of these offences a ban will follow at the mods discretion.
    3. Pimping sites or spamming. This is usually something that displeases the powerful types. Do this at your peril.
    4. Referral code pimping. This is an extension of rule 3. Wise posters use their signatures, but do not put the code in there either. Code available, PM for details, etc, etc.

    If a post offends you or you think it is inappropriate to this forum please use the report post function. Do not get involved in slagging matches on the thread as this may get you in trouble too.

    IF you are going to aftertime in a thread, attach a picture of said bet with it in the live betting thread or aftertiming thread in that respective forum. It only takes a minute or two at most to do this. Failure to produce a pic within 24 hours will result in a red card at the very least.

    •When posting a selection/tip please give a reasoning and background to the tip. In other words, don’t come on and say “Stick the house on XXXX to win, it’s a sure thing”. That sort of phrasing is not constructive, so is likely to earn a warning at least.

    •Using the write-ups of others from different websites in an attempt to pass it on as your own is strictly forbidden and will result in a permanent ban from the forum. If you can't add your own reasoning to your selections, don't post it.

    • is a private body, as such don’t post possibly libellous posts. You don’t have free speech. You don’t have free advertising either, so no commercial posts. Spam is not a type of food around here and will result in your banning. Possibly permanently.

    •Moderators decision is final. If you have a problem with a moderator please use the Dispute Resolution Forum
    •If someone posts a tip/selection (with a reasoning behind it) and it loses, do not abuse them. Believe it or not you didn’t have to follow the tip.

    • Gambling can be a problem, and while the majority of topics on these boards will be for fun, if you allow yourself to get to obsessed with it, gambling can change your life for the worst. There are organisations that can help if you think you or a loved one may have a problem. If in doubt, then seek help here :

    If you are in doubt about anything, please PM gambling moderators
