Tour of Ireland: Unibet WTF?

I try not to pay too much attention to the politics, but I've read of some unibet turbulence this season because of gambling laws. Watching the Tour of Ireland on VS, it looks like the race organization coverage blurred out the unibet logos on jerseys, while the VS interviews didn't. What's going on?

Right now, I'm watching stage two, and Kristian House (GB, Navigators) is off the front. I let him borrow my pump at the Tuesday Nighter a couple weeks ago (he lives here). 5 minutes later, I was racing with him. And I wonder why I have a tough time sticking it out in breaks in the A group I don't know if I've mentioned it before or not, but I really like our Tuesday Nighter

Next season I am going to have to make the 45 minute drive to Austin on Tuesdays, sounds like a great ride.

It has nothing to do with Unibet, but how did that one guy get his hand stuck in the spokes of another rider's rear wheel? It looked quite painful. Oh yeah, the finish sucked and so did Slipstream.

I just have my AMD LIVE! (shill) media center PC set up to record anything with "cycling" in the description or title...

Further off-topic:
I have two digital cable boxes going into two tuner cards in the PC, and can catch two shows at the same time like a dual-tuner Tivo. I also have a Media Center extender in another room that streams TV off the PC, and I can set up and manage recordings from there too, over the network.

I have a 27 Inch Color Daiwoo, sure it was $200, but you can't take it with you It does have comcast and I tell you one of these days I'm going to figure out that DVR stuff........
