Difficult for the Gambling Commission to stop it once the whole thing had started becoming more difficult the bigger it grew. Imagine if they had pulled the plug in Jan 2020 there would have been uproar! Thousands of punters who were all making good money and believing in the Index suddenly having their investment wiped out by a governing body for no good reason (in their eyes).
Yes its a good point its difficult for the gambling commission to make that decision. But really so what if it is they still have to make it.

Similar to corona virus in some ways it was difficult for Boris to choose to lockdown before christmas but by being to spineless to do it things got much much worse. Gambling commission showed a lack of courage in my view. I dont think they had a lack of knowledge as to what was going to happen. They just sat back and abdicated resposibility.

Of course users and Football index themselves also have huge responsibility but the bulk of it lies with gambling commission in my opinion.

The GC very quickly stopped SportStack. Reading between the lines now should have seen why they did.

Apparently Footstock has now gone into administration too, I think Sorare is the final one?

Especially after seeing what happened to FI but it's customers seem to blame management rather than the concept :?
