Paddy Power refunds all bets on Chelsea

New, comments

Hilarious stuff.

The folks at online betting site Paddy Power have decided to refund all bets placed on Chelsea for the match against Barcelona on Wednesday.

Here's what the site's blog had to say about the decision:

"We’re guessing most Chelsea fans are about as happy about last night’s goings on as Didier "IT’S A F**KING DISGRACE" Drogba. So we’re refunding all bets on Chelsea to win last night’s match and reach the final of the Champions League!

Four penalty claims denied - at least one of which could not have been more blatant, plus the absolute heartbreak of conceding in the 3rd minute of injury time after a fantastic defensive effort over 180 minutes.

It’s not fair, but it’s the rules. But as always the punter’s pal is prepared to bend those rules a little. A bit like the referee last night in fact."

What a class move by these guys. I think I know where I'll be placing my bets from now on.
