Paddy Power Bookmakers have been effectively in charge of Betfair since 1 August 2012 when the CEO was appointed.

He has diverted all the mug money to the Sportsbook as Paddy Power get 100% of the losses

As a Bookmaker, who only knows Bookmaking, only interested in Bookmaking, these people detest anybody winning.

Paddy Power don't want 5% to 7% commission on the Exchange or the 22.55 to 62.5% Paddy Power Premium Charges - they want all your wonga..

I think this is due to a fact that they can automatically manage the markets thanks to runningball scouts. Exchange in-play only have the matches with these accurate stats.

The Exchange has relied on runningball scouts for years and there is no reason that the same matches cannot be on the Exchange.

It is a business decision by Paddy Power Mgt to remove matches from the Exchange

Currently 7 matches in-play on the Sportsbook and only ONE on the Exchange LaughLaugh
