Small question: Why was vBetting removed?

So I just have a small question.

I know vBetting was available up until about early 2008, when WTAW changed names to TF and the betting was disabled.
But why was it disabled? I mean, MTF still have theirs...

Thanks in advanced.

Re: Small question: Why was vBetting removed?

Because the WTA told us to remove it (and change our name) or they would sue us.
It was around that time that the hype about betting in tennis, and how much of a problem it was, was quite big, and they didn't want to be associated with it at all.

I can see asking for a name change so as not to be connected with "betting", but how could they sue you for betting with play money once you changed the name? The whole activity of betting for fake money is so innocuous...

VerticalScope agreed (in the settlement agreement) to remove vBookie and not to have any sort of simulated
wagering or gambling on the website.

Re: Small question: Why was vBetting removed?

It was really my fault. There was a big scandal when I bet not only all my V-cash, but the kids' entire college fund on Elena Dementieva to win the 2008 U.S. Open. The scandal being that it was Dave's kids' college fund.

Re: Small question: Why was vBetting removed?

Well can we at least have it back becuase these credits are just going to go up and up and up and up until all the top posters have 1,000,000 credits. What are you meant to do with these credits.
