Football Index founder denies he received millions from the business

first_imgThe judge, Robin Vos, ultimately postponed his decision, but said his ruling should come by the end of next week (4 June). Topics: Finance Legal & compliance People Legal Tags: Football Index BetIndex Email Address Cole added that if there was any misconduct on directors’ behalf, administrators Begbies Traynor would investigate it. “Over the last five years we have seen an incredibly loyal customer following, who truly believed in our unique concept and were passionate about seeing the business succeed,” Cole said. “The staff and management of Football Index are to a man, and woman, devastated by what has happened to those customers and understand the resentment, loss and anger that has occurred.” Football Index co-founder Adam Cole has sought to correct what he described as “inaccuracies” regarding the payments he and other BetIndex shareholders received before the operator collapsed earlier this year. Cole said that while a business currently known as Fame Ventures lists only himself as a director and has no bank account, this was not the business being paid. Rather, this refers to the business now known as Index Labs, which according to Companies House filings changed its name from Fame Ventures in December 2019. Index Labs is the parent company of Football Index and, as it performed work on the operator’s platform, Cole says it is “where the bulk of technical costs are incurred”. However, documents released last week show the business was already taking steps to enter administration after agreeing to do so at a 5 March board meeting, even though the platform reopened and took bets following the dividend change. The documents in question were released ahead of a court hearing to determine how funds in BetIndex’s £4.5m player protection account should be allocated. The funds are intended to cover money held in player accounts, but the administrators asked a High Court judge to determine a cut-off date for winnings, as these would continue to accrue if a date was not selected, eventually bringing the account into deficit. One of these claims concerned a business named Fame Ventures, to which Football Index paid £9.0m in “support fees” in its 2020 accounts. Cole said that following the release of documents ahead of a court hearing on Friday (21 May), there had been a number of “inaccuracies” in the way the case was reported. In a new statement, he moved to dispel claims that were “not open to debate or interpretation”. BetIndex entered administration on the night of 11 March, and had its licence suspended by the Gambling Commission at the same time. This followed a change to the operator’s dividend structure on 8 March that BetIndex said was necessary to keep the business running. Cole – who stepped down as Football Index chief executive in December 2020 – then revealed that the amount he had received from all businesses in the BetIndex group was £236,692 over the six years since its launch. However, he said he also received full repayment of a zero-interest loan he gave to the business, the size of which was not disclosed. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Further documents released showed that BetIndex directors hope to relaunch the Football Index brand, as part of a company voluntary arrangement (CVA), with customers who are owed funds receiving a 50% equity stake in the new business if they approve the deal. Administrators said this was possible as “the underlying business model is attractive to customers and financially sustainable” and added that “the directors consider that there is a real prospect” of the operator being relicensed. Regions: UK & Ireland This investigation will look into not only the business itself, but also whether more could have been done by the Gambling Commission, which revealed that it had been investigating Football Index for almost a year, but opted not to suspend the operator’s licence, partly due to concerns that doing so would have only accelerated its collapse. In addition, the Football Index founder clarified that the business had not paid any dividends to shareholders at any point in its history. While documents related to the business made frequent reference to dividends, these referred to a form of winnings on the platform, paid out when a footballer makes an achievement such as scoring a goal, not shareholder dividends. “All we can do as a team right now is fight for the best outcome for those customers,” Cole said. “As officers of the court, the administrators are duty bound to provide a thorough investigation of the conduct of directors of the company and the events that led to the administration of BetIndex.” Companies: BETER Legal Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter After Football Index’s collapse, the government Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) announced an inquiry into how the operator failed, after pressure from groups such as the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Gambling-Related Harm.

Former House Speaker, Fort Worth icon Jim Wright dies at 92

first_imgJoey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ Fort Worth Firefighters Charities posts signs for drowning prevention month Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Facebook Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ Linkedin Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ + posts printFormer House Speaker Jim Wright was remembered Wednesday as a statesman and powerbroker, but TCU recalled a teacher and mentor.For nearly 20 years, Wright taught a popular political science class at TCU — Congress and the Presidents. He also lectured about government and history.Wright stepped down from teaching in 2010, but continued tutoring students.“I loved having students come talk with me,” Wright said in a 2014 interview. “They would show up, and we would talk at length about their academics, and politics and whatever we stumbled upon. It was a lot of fun.”Chancellor of TCU, Victor Boschini acknowledged Wright’s death in an e-mail Wednesday morning.“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Speaker Wright, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time,” Boschini wrote.Wright maintained an office in the Mary Couts Burnett Library on TCU’s campus. It was an exact replica of the speaker’s ceremonial office at the Capitol in Washington, D.C.The library also houses the Speaker Jim Wright Collection. It consists of papers, photographs, audiovisual material and memorabilia that document his political career, according to the library website. The Jim Wright Papers, which span from 1911 to 2004, highlight the collection and document social and political issues in the United States during the second half of the twentieth century.TCU also hosts the Jim Wright Symposium, an annual event which began in 2002 and attracts distinguished speakers from both sides of the political spectrum. The 14th symposium was held in March.A political lifeJames Claude Wright Jr. was born in Fort Worth on Dec. 22, 1922, the son of a professional boxer turned tailor.He graduated from Adamson High School in Dallas, then studied at Weatherford Junior College in his mother’s hometown of Weatherford. He continued his college education at the University of Texas at Austin, but the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941 changed his plans.Wright left college to enlist in the U.S. Army and flew combat missions in the South Pacific, earning the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Legion of Merit.He served in the Texas House for one term, and at age 26 was mayor of Weatherford, his boyhood hometown, from 1950 to 1954, before his first congressional victory.Wright represented what is now Texas’ 12th Congressional District for 34 years; he was elected in 1954. He was elected Democratic majority leader in 1979 and held the title for nearly a decade. He became speaker in 1987.Wright resigned the speakership in 1989 after the House Ethics Committee charged him with violating House rules on reporting of gifts, accepting gifts from people with an interest in legislation, and limits on outside income.As a congressman and later as speaker, Wright directed millions in federal dollars to North Texas. He worked to bring major defense contracts to North Texas and also shepherded substantial infrastructure projects including flood control and the development of water reservoirs.“There’s nothing in Fort Worth that doesn’t have Jim Wright’s fingerprints on it,” said Jim Riddlesperger, one of Wright’s colleague’s and a political science professor.He was instrumental in the creation of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, and the architect of legislation to help foster growth in the airport’s early years. The Wright Amendment restricted direct commercial air travel from Love Field, near downtown Dallas, to nearby states. In June 2006, President George W. Bush signed legislation to repeal the Wright Amendment and it was fully repealed in October 2014.“We wouldn’t have DFW airport without him,” Riddlesperger said.Wright also worked to bring a slice of the U.S. Mint to Fort Worth and helped bring a National Archives facility to Fort Worth.Often praised for his eloquence, Wright was a disciple of House Speaker Sam Rayburn, a fellow Texan.He also was a confidant of another Texan, Lyndon B. Johnson, who served in the Senate during Wright’s initial years in Congress before becoming vice president in 1961. Wright lost a special election to fill Johnson’s Senate seat that year.Wright was in the presidential motorcade on Nov. 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.“To describe the depth of sadness that engulfed us that day defies vocabulary,” he once said, recalling how the friendly mood of the Dallas crowds turned to “sheer terror and horror.”His friend Johnson became president that day.Wright was also involved in shaping American foreign policy.He played a pivotal role in bringing about a negotiated settlement in Central America that later led to the 1990 elections in Nicaragua in which the leftist Sandinista government lost. He was also the first American politician to give a nationally televised speech in the Soviet Union.“His legacy is not just a local legacy, it’s a national, and even an international legacy,” Riddlesperger said.Additionally, Wright was known for crossing the partisan divide.“He had grown up in an environment where the two parties worked with one another,” Riddlesperger said. “Jim was of a different generation and a different set of experiences.”Wright, who had the “gift of personal interaction,” remained known for his folksy charm.“Jim began each conversation with three simple words: ‘how are you?’” said Riddlesperger. “That wasn’t just pro forma with Speaker Wright. He wanted to know.”Funeral arrangements are pending.The Associated Press contributed to this story.

It was dedicated to the Dale County soldiers who died in World War I. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration The Veterans Bridge was built using World War I ERA trucks. “There were twin derricks, one on each side of the river,” Turner said. “Cables were strung across the river with buckets of cement and a pulley. Workers would fill the buckets on one side of the river and a truck would drive up the river and pull the buckets out to be dumped. They would do that over and over again.” Turner said he was thankful that there were people who had the will and knowledge to build the Pea River Veterans Bridge.“And I thank God for the brave men and women that this bridge was dedicated to and for all our veterans,” Turner said. “I think locations like this should be preserved for future generations.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Historical marker rededicated Members of Brundidge VFW Post 7055 conducted a rededication ceremony for the Pea River Veterans Bridge historical marker on Wednesday.

Video shows woman allegedly trying to run off with couple’s children at airport

first_imgvia Atlanta Police Department(ATLANTA) — A woman who was traveling with her kids to Florida from their home in Atlanta told police that a stranger she encountered at the airport repeatedly tried to walk away with her children.Georgia police say the incidents were captured on the airport’s surveillance video, and a woman has been charged with kidnapping and obstructing an officer. According to a police report, the mother told officers that she was walking through the atrium of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Saturday when another woman approached her and attempted to grab her stroller with the woman’s child in it.The incident happened in the public area before travelers passed through security, the woman told police.Surveillance video shows a woman dressed in black and white and wearing a large, pink floppy hat standing in the middle of the atrium by herself. Police identified the woman as Esther Daniels, 26, of Kansas.The video then shows a woman pushing a stroller and luggage, and a child walking alongside her. The woman in the pink hat appears to walk beside them. The two appear to tussle over the stroller and the mother’s husband, who is also shown pushing a stroller with a child, can be seen rushing over to help.When the mother pulled the stroller away from the woman’s grasp, she told officers, the woman then allegedly grabbed the older child who had been walking alongside his mother, and “tried to walk away with him,” police said.Video showed the woman carrying the child in her arms and attempting to run away as officers surrounded the group. In the video, the husband is able to pull the child from her arms and carry him to safety and the woman can be seen running from officers.Both children involved in the incident were checked by emergency medical services at the airport, police said. Neither child was injured.Police said in their report that when officers — including a police traffic control officer — encountered Daniels, she was talking on a cellphone.“I asked Ms. Daniels what was wrong and she tried to pass her cell phone over to me to talk to someone. Ms. Daniels wasn’t able to speak in a manner to where I was able to understand her,” the report said. “Ms. Daniels (continued) to blurt out things that made me believe that she was in some type of mental distress.”When officers tried to take the phone from her, the report said, she allegedly ran back toward the couple and their children. Daniels allegedly resisted officers and “remained combative” during the arrest, police said.She was eventually arrested by officers and taken into custody. Police said she did receive medical attention “due to her mental state and some blood on her lower lip.”It is unclear whether Daniels has retained an attorney.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
