NFL falls leave 1 fan dead, 2 hurt

Early indications suggest 32-year-old Kevin Hayes of Hayward fell accidentally, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr said.
Alcohol may or may not have played a role to some varying degree, but right now, it looks like a very sad, tragic accident, Suhr said.
Hayes fell while walking with his brother on a bridge over four lanes of traffic outside the stadium, police said. Off-duty medics and police officers gave him first aid until an ambulance arrived, but authorities said he was declared dead from his injuries.
We would like to express our deepest condolences to the family during this difficult time, 49ers spokesman Bob Lange said in an email.
The death came just after kickoff in what was eventually San Franciscos 34-28 win over Green Bay. Multiple witnesses reported that Hayes appeared to be intoxicated and having trouble walking before he fell over the rail to a sidewalk below.
It certainly marred what otherwise a very happy day for fans who know this is the last opening game we will see in Candlestick, San Francisco Mayor Lee said.
Also Sunday, a railing collapsed at the Colts game against the Raiders in Indianapolis, injuring two unidentified fans who were leaning against the barrier above a tunnel leading to Oaklands locker room.
One person was taken away on a stretcher, while another left in a wheelchair, witnesses said.
After the Colts 21-17 victory, Barney Levengood, executive director of the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium, issued a statement that said one of the people was released after receiving medical attention at the stadium. The other person was treated at the stadium and transported to Methodist Hospital for additional evaluation. Levengood said the second fan did not appear to be seriously injured.

Fan Dalton Tinklenberg of Kokomo., Ind., told The Indianapolis Star on Monday the railing that collapsed appeared to be wobbly. Stadium officials did not immediately return phone messages and emails from The Associated Press seeking comment.
Witnesses who saw the incident said the two fans were leaning against the railing and fell from the top of the tunnel onto the hard walkway used by Raiders players and coaches to reach the locker room.
Since 2003, there have been more than two dozen serious cases of fans falling at stadiums across the United States, according to the Institute for the Study of Sports Incidents.
That includes a 2007 fatality at Candlestick Park when a fan in the concession area misjudged a jump up to sit on a wall and fell instead from the upper concourse to the mezzanine level, said Alana Penza, director of the institute, which is part of the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security, based at the University of Southern Mississippi.
Sometimes a venue will say this was an accident, but other times they might decide to make adjustments, said Penza.
Historic Candlestick Park closes after this season and will be replaced by a shopping center. Next year, the 49ers will move into a $1.2 billion stadium at the teams Silicon Valley headquarters in Santa Clara, a steeper design but with many built in safety rails.
Penza noted that stadium fatalities are not limited to football.
In Atlanta, baseball fan Ronald Lee Homer Jr. died last month after falling 85 feet following a tumble over Turner Fields fourth-level railing. Homers death was the third at an Atlanta stadium in the past year.

Monday Night Football Betting Preview, Eagles vs. Redskins
2010-11-15 Eagles vs. Redskins Betting Odds: Philadelphia -3.5, Total: 43

Donovan McNabb is likely to start in Monday’s NFC East showdown against his former team. McNabb was benched in the fourth quarter of last game against Detroit, and has been bothered by hamstring injuries, but he says he’s ready to go. Mike Vick is also ready to play again for the Eagles. Vick was knocked out of the Week 4 meeting between these two teams, which was won by Washington 17-12.

The NFL betting public at seems to have more faith in Vick and the Birds tonight as 79 percent of the Eagles vs. Redskins point spread bettors are backing Philly -3.5 points.

Vick, who appears to be fully recovered from that rib injury, leads the NFL with a 105.3 quarterback rating. He has thrown for 1,017 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions. Vick has also rushed for 261 yards (7.3 YPC) and two more scores. The Eagles rank fifth in the NFL in rushing with 138 YPG. LeSean McCoy (572 yards, 4.7 YPC, 5 TD) is the top rusher on the team, but he was also a threat catching passes out of the backfield in the Week 4 meeting with Washington. McCoy caught 12 passes for 110 yards that game in addition to his 64 rushing yards.

McNabb had a terrible game against Philly in Week 4. He completed just 8-of-19 passes for 125 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He was 2-for-11 for 10 yards in the second half. Luckily for McNabb, his running game bailed him out. The Redskins rushed for a season-high 169 yards in that contest. Ryan Torain had 70 of those yards, but he might be limited Monday night because of a nagging hamstring injury. RB Clinton Portis will miss his fifth straight game with a groin injury, so Washington would love to give Torain 25-plus touches.

The Eagles are 11-6-1 ATS when playing at Washington since 1992 and this football betting trend found at indicates the Eagles will once again cover the point spread.

Andy Reid is 10-0 ATS (+10.0 Units) vs. poor passing defenses - allowing 235 or more passing yards/game in the second half of the season as the coach of PHILADELPHIA. The average score was PHILADELPHIA 30.7, OPPONENT 15.3 - (Rating = 5*).

Twelve of the past 17 meetings in Washington have gone Under the Total and these two NFL trends also predict the score will finish Under the Total once again.

Play Under - Any team where the total is between 42.5 and 49 points (WASHINGTON) - after allowing 30 points or more last game against opponent after 2 straight games where 50 total points or more were scored. (80-36 since 1983.) (69%, +40.4 units. Rating = 3*).

PHILADELPHIA is 13-2 UNDER (+10.8 Units) after 2 straight games where 50 total points or more were scored since 1992. The average score was PHILADELPHIA 17.3, OPPONENT 14.1 - (Rating = 2*).

Now that you know the key numbers for tonight’s game, make your home for all of your Monday Night Football betting needs.


For the 2010 NFC Championship Game, Brett Favre returns to the site of his biggest career win ever, hoping to put his new team in position to reach similar lofty heights. Favre won his only Super Bowl in New Orleans while with the Packers, and now, with Green bay’s biggest rival, the Vikings, can put himself in position to capture an improbable second title. The Saints are at home and favored by 3.5-points at though, and just as hungry as Minnesota to win a first ever NFL title. Betting action is split fairly evenly on the side, but nearly 75% of bettors expect this game to fly over the total of 53.

Favre was phenomenal in Sunday’s rout of Dallas, throwing a career playoff high four TD’s, adding to what has been a MVP-caliber season. Getting past this game won’t be easy though, as the league’s best offense awaits, with another prolific quarterback at the controls, Drew Brees, who’s Saints seemed to pick up where they left off about six weeks ago with a 45-14 win over Arizona in the Divisional Round.

New Orleans was installed as a 4.5-point favorite at opener for the contest, and is right where it wants to be, at home in front of what figures to be a raucous crowd. The Saints are 7-2 SU & 5-4 ATS at home this season while scoring 33.2 PPG. Minnesota is just 4-4 SU & ATS on the road, but is also capable of putting up points, 29.2 PPG thus far. You have to figure Saints coach Sean Payton would love to get into a shootout though, as he is 6-0 ATS (+6.0 Units) vs. very good offensive teams scoring >=27 PPG as the coach of NEW ORLEANS. The average score in those games was NEW ORLEANS 40.5, OPPONENT 24.3.

This game of course, is unfamiliar territory for both franchises, as neither has ever won a Super Bowl, and the winner will get the chance to do so in two weeks. The Vikings haven’t been in the conference title game since the infamous loss to Atlanta at home in ’99. For as comfortable as he looked on Sunday at the Metrodome, Favre hasn’t won a road playoff game since the ’98 NFC title game. New Orleans is playing for a conference title for the second time ever (’07 loss at Chicago). The Vikings own a 4-0 SU & ATS edge in the head-to-head series since ’02, including a 30-27 win at the Superdonw in October ’08.

Here is StatFox Steve’s take on the NFC title tilt, straight from the Platinum Sheet…In my opinion, the NFC Championship Game comes down to whether or not the Saints offense is “back” from its late season struggles. Can the performance over Arizona’s inept defensive unit really be enough to springboard New Orleans on to Miami? The fact that the Saints are at home makes this answer a little easier, as the Superdome tends to make them faster and more comfortable. Can you believe how good Reggie Bush looked on Saturday? HC Sean Payton’s team averages 33.2 PPG at home and topped the 30-point plateau six times in nine contests as hosts. To me, that indicates that Minnesota is going to have to score at least 30 points itself to win this game. If you don’t think the Vikings can, then by all means you cannot play them against the spread, as if you read the article on pgs 4-5, you’ll see that hosts playing as favorites in the -3 to -9.5 line range in Conference Championship Round games are 13-8 SU & ATS since ’93. The straight up winner is 21-0 ATS in such games! In other words, for both of these contests, you may think getting some extra points might help you, but history has shown that the game winner will cover. With that in mind, I turn to a prolific Money Line FoxSheets Super Situation that will be in play for Sunday’s game: Play On - Favorites of -160 to -475 vs. the money line (NEW ORLEANS) - after a win by 28 or more points against opponent after scoring 30 points or more last game. (31-1 since 1983.) (96.9%, +29.3 units. Rating = 5*). I don’t like the way Minnesota has transformed into a one-dimensional club, and with Brett Favre’s recent road playoff history, I don’t think he can keep up with Drew Brees here. Saints win, 34-20.

Play: Minnesota -3.5


European licensed Bodog brand will operate on Orbis sportsbetting software

With the resolution of the Bodog brand patents dispute last (April) month (see previous InfoPowa reports) the European licensed site at is re-routing to the main international brand and gearing up for a busy European sportsbetting season.

Last month, md Keith McDonnell, hinted at the future direction of the brand when he said: "As the 'Bodog' brand licensee for Europe, we are ecstatic to see the return of Working with the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group and the other licensees, geo-targeting will be used to ensure visitors outside of the MMGG's (North American) territory are directed to the correct site, including ours ( ). This way, the marketing efforts of every licensee to promote benefit us all, ultimately reinforcing and strengthening the global brand. It will absolutely be a win-win-win solution."

McDonnell and his staff have been busy making the operation more suited to the European market by engaging with Orbis - which was brought in to sort out William Hill's troubled in-house software last year - on new software. The goal is to be fully geared up in terms of technology and content in good time for the strt of the 2009-2010 football season.

The company will be aligned with similarly licensed entities in Canada (MMGG) and the Phillipines (Haydock Sports) as reported previously in InfoPowa.

McDonnell acknowledges that Europe is a tough and highly competitive arena, but has said that his marketers will leverage associated sports tournaments like its Ultimate Fighting Championship to target different and in some cases new demographics.
