Other Sports Ferrari takes a call to remove all Mission Winnow branding for Australia

first_imgThe sport’s governing body, the FIA, as opposed to any advertising or sponsoring of cigarettes or tobacco, but Philip Morris re-entered the sport last October through its scientific research subsidiary and branded Ferrari cars with its Mission Winnow logo. They were featured on Ferrari livery during the Japan Grand Prix in October, sparking an investigation by Australia’s communications regulator over whether TV broadcasts of the race breached its ban on tobacco advertising.The state government of Victoria, which is home to Melbourne, was likewise probing the controversial branding. Philip Morris said while it had agreed to drop the branding for Australia, it continued to believe it “complies with relevant laws related to our activities around the world”.”Mission Winnow does not and will not advertise or promote any Philip Morris International-branded tobacco or e-cigarette products,” it added.”It is meant to challenge preconceptions and spark a conversation, particularly with those who — for ideological reasons — are not yet open to a conversation on the power of science for the progress of society.” The lure of advertising from the tobacco industry has increased in recent years as Formula One teams struggle to meet their budget requirements. highlights New Delhi: Ferrari will remove all branding by tobacco giant Philip Morris’s “Mission Winnow” initiative for the opening Formula One race of the year in Melbourne after concerns about cigarette advertising, officials said Wednesday.

The fine art of pricing a penalty shootout

first_img As the nation prepares for England’s first World Cup semi-final since Italia 90, England fans frantically hope that the anxiety of the Colombia game isn’t replicated and Southgate’s side win in 90 minutes.However, should England’s fate see them head to spot kicks tonight, we take a look at the challenges that are presented to a trader as they look to price the dreaded penalty shootout. SBC spoke to Head of Compilation at Abelson Info, Jeevan Jeyaratnam who revealed his belief that a shootout is far from a lottery, as well as looking at some of the key factors in pricing penalties. SBC: In general, how difficult is it to price which side will win a penalty shootout? Jeevan Jeyaratnam: A common misconception is that a penalty shootout is a “lottery” with both sides having an equal chance. This is not far from the truth, however, if we breakdown the mechanics it is more nuanced than that.There are a couple of approaches to pricing a penalty shootout, the first, a more accurate but laborious process, involves using player parameters to determine the likely more experienced, and therefore successful penalty takers in each team- a “penalty prowess” player/team parameter. Generally, the team with better players are going to be favourites for the match, this team would also be slightly more likely to win a penalty shootout. Therefore, pre-game shootout odds should reflect that superiority, albeit if the game has gone all the way to penalties there is far less variance between the two teams’ chances. Most firms won’t be going to the detail of analysing each player’s parameters. So, method two, derived from the match supremacy, allows us to use the 50-50 idea as a benchmark, before adding a small deviation to allow for the superiority of one side over another. If we look at bet365’s prices, at 90mins, prior to the England v Colombia shootout, we can see England were regarded as slight favourite to win a shootout (3.10 v 3.25). At the end of the extra-time period the prices had snapped to 1.90 v 1.90, but a closer look at the Asian Handicap prices shows England at 1.875 (53.33%) v 1.975 (50.63%) for Colombia. This is as we would expect to see given that England were judged to have the superior team at kick-off. It is small but significant difference. The reason for the variation in pricing what is essentially the same market is likely due to margin and odds ladders, and possibly different supplier feeds. The Asian prices were bet to 103.96% while the top of the page “To Win Shootout” prices were bet to 105.2%. Always shop around!SBC: In the Croatia versus Denmark game, we saw Modric miss a penalty in the game before stepping up to take one in the shootout, can in-play penalties have an impact on pricing for a shootout? JJ: Invariably the team’s regular penalty taker is an experienced and competent individual, able to handle the pressure situation that comes with a penalty. Bearing this in mind, we wouldn’t expect to see this affect a player taking another penalty in the shootout. Of course, if we were updating individual player parameters in real-time, there would be an additional data point for both taker and keeper, but honestly these would have little impact on the pricing.SBC: Additionally, in that shootout we saw dominant performances from Schmeichel and Subasic, how much can a strong keeper sway a sides’ odds before heading into a shootout? JJ: Of course, a better than average goalkeeper is a benefit, and if we were allocating player/team “penalty prowess” parameters, this would be reflected. It is fair to say that most firms/supplier feeds will set up their penalty shootout prices as such;As a starting point we know that 75% (1.33) of penalties are scored and 25% missed (4.00). That sample is going to be mainly comprised of experienced penalty takers. So, to score the 1st pen, 1.30 (76%), to miss, 3.40 (29.41%) is a likely offer. The same prices would probably be used for the 2nd pen. After that we’d likely see some degradation in the quality of the taker, the offer might look like this; to score 1.33 (75%), to miss, 3.25 (30.76%). The “to score” price would continue to fractionally slide the further the shootout went. SBC: For the Russia Spain game it was clear for long periods, Russia were playing for penalties, can the moral victory of getting to penalties increase a smaller teams’ odds of winning a shootout? JJ: Psychologically I’m not sure of the impact of this, it isn’t something we’d worry too much about from a compilation perspective. I’d actually argue the opposite, in that the smaller teams may feel they have already achieved their goal before embarking on the arduous task of winning a shootout.SBC: Can the body language of players have any impact at all on the odds for a penalty shootout?JJ: We all recall times when we’ve said, “he doesn’t fancy this, I think he looks like missing”, and when that hunch is confirmed, we remember it. What we don’t recall with such clarity is the times that the player goes on to prove us wrong and score. This is evidence of confirmation bias and really has no bearing on price. If a player has agreed to step up for a penalty then there’s every chance he feels confident enough to convert it. There is, of course, extra pressure on penalties that must be scored in order to avoid defeat, likewise, those whose success can mean victory. At a very detailed level this could affect pricing but realistically, with margins, it isn’t something firms should be worrying about at this time.

Lakers blow big lead before putting away Knicks, clinch top seed for NBA Summer League tourney

first_imgLAS VEGAS — The Lakers defeated the New York Knicks 109-92 in an NBA Summer League game on Tuesday night at Cox Pavilion to complete the pre-playoff portion of the event with a 3-0 record and clinch the top seed for the single-elimination tournament that begins Wednesday.While the defending Summer League champions led for all but a few minutes of Tuesday’s game, they blew a 25-point second-half lead before second-year guard Josh Hart helped put them back on track for a victory.With the 25-point cushion and rookie big man Moe Wagner having already suffered a left knee and left ankle sprain in the first half, Lakers summer league coach Miles Simon pulled Hart, rookie guard Svi Mykhailiuk and veteran Alex Caruso to the bench midway through the third quarter. The Knicks took advantage of the absences, burying a slew of 3-point baskets to finish the third quarter on a 28-3 run that tied the score. The Knicks took a three-point lead to start the fourth quarter, but Hart and Mykhailiuk helped the Lakers reel off 16 consecutive points to regain control of the game.Hart finished with 27 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals. Reserve Jeff Ayres, who started in Wagner’s place to begin the second half, had 17 points and four rebounds on 7-of-7 shooting. Xavier Rathan-Mayes added 10 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals off the bench. Caruso, who started, had five points, four rebounds and a team-high 10 assists. Mykhailiuk was held to nine points on 3-for-12 shooting, and Nick King had 15 points off the bench.

Heisler: Now for the season before the season the Lakers yearn for

first_img(LeBron has been in the last eight Finals – reaching all from the East, the lesser conference even when his Miami teams were the NBA’s best. Had LeBron’s Heat and Cavaliers been in the West, he would have done well to make half those Finals.)Besides LeBron, Magic Johnson signed four veterans with checkered pasts who might be in the rotation – Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee, Michael Beasley and Lance Stephenson. The team hopes they will assume key roles, not the least of which is vanishing from its salary cap next spring.(Actually, Rondo, one of those viewed most skeptically, might be the most helpful, especially if Lonzo Ball struggles or gets hurt. Once a non-factor past 15 feet, Rondo has become a 35 percent 3-point shooter. He has become a leader as he has aged and chilled from his early years as a pain in the rear end whom older teammates put up with because he was so good.)There’s still too great a burden placed on the Lakers’ young, promising but still untested-at-this-level players.We know Kyle Kuzma could be very good and Brandon Ingram could be special. Josh Hart looks useful, at least. Lonzo Ball showed he was, indeed, a special playmaker, even while leaving other questions – shooting? – unanswered in a rocky rookie season.The young players will be the ones filling the major roles around James. Of the four, only one has ever been on an NBA team that was ever above .500 (Ingram, a rookie on the 2016-17 team that rocketed to a 7-5 start before finishing 26-56).Not enough shooters. You could hear this on any local talk show, or, indeed, at any local grade school but that doesn’t mean it’s not true.This isn’t just a critique you could hear on any talk show.Nevertheless, it’s not just some modern internet vogue, like so much of the hue and cry about unproven “analytics” in basketball.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

That was head-turning for a rookie but not for one of a contending team’s top shooting threats.Last season’s Warriors were No. 1 in 3-point accuracy at 39.1 percent, 1.4 percent ahead of No. 2 Boston (37.7). The Rockets were No. 1 in 3-pointers made at 15.3 per game, 2.6 ahead of No. 2 Brooklyn (12.7).The Lakers were No. 20 at 10 per game and No. 29 in accuracy at 34.5 percent.It’s asking a lot of young players to slash that gap but Magic Johnson, who had concluded LeBron’s Cavaliers had too many specialists such as Kyle Korver, didn’t bring in a single outside shooter, aside from drafting Ukrainian Svi Mykhailiuk (Kansas) in the second round.This might have been all about knowing they’re waiting ’til next season.Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Now for the season Lakerdom has waited all decade for …Oh, wait, that’s next season, after the Lakers bag that second star player they’ve saved salary cap space for, such as Kawhi Leonard or (they can dream) Kevin Durant.This season should be titled “In the meantime.” For the Lakers, who measure success in titles, this is still about rebuilding to contend on that level, as opposed to being there.The Western Conference powers far outgun them – that’s the Rockets as well as the Warriors and perhaps two or three or more teams. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed center_img I’m guessing that if Magic thought there was a title on the line this season, he would have brought in some shooters … the way he had Byron Scott and Michael Cooper, who meant so much in Showtime, even before offense became all about spacing and shooting.In other words, wait ’til next year. In that meantime, good luck, Luke!None of this means this season will be anything like the lean ones.It’s actually disappointment-proof with Lakers fans, once the most spoiled of fat cats, enchanted at the thought of making the playoffs, which once would have elicited yawns here.Better yet, with James as a magnet, there’s every reason to believe they can land that second star next summer, leading to even better times in the 2019-20 season.In the meantime, LeBron, at 33, has to continue aging arch-gracefully. The young players have to keep coming. As a team they have to be as good, or better, on the court as they are on paper.What’s the problem? After all the down years, this looks like up in Lakerdom.
