    Father Betting on Son 's Professional Career 10 Years Ago

    Anypne wants to bet that their child(ren) will someday play for Iowa State or in the pro sports ? :)Ryan Tunnicliffe dad win £10,000 after son makes Manchester United debut | Mail Online

    The father of young Ryan Tunnicliffe became £10,000 richer when the 19-year-old Manchester United midfielder came on for his debut in the 76th minute of Wednesday night's Capital One Cup win over Newcastle.


    Mick Tunnicliffe placed a £100 bet when his son was nine that he would one day play for United (at odds of 100-1), and his moment came when Marnick Vermijl was replaced during the 2-1 win

    And there could be worse to come for bookmakers William Hill, who revealed they also took another bet from Tunnicliffe's dad of £100 at odds of 350/1 that the young midfielder will one day play for England at some stage in his career.

    The wager could net Tunnicliffe Snr a whopping £35,000 payout.


    'The last time a bet of this nature cost us £10,000 was when Chris Kirkland made his debut in goal for England, also landing a £100 bet for his father,' said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

    Rory Mcilroy's dad did the same. Bet that his son would win the British Open when he was like 10-12. That paid off handsomely.

    Which begs the question...isn't the payoff of the bet still pretty much chump change at that point?

    You're kid has already been winning multi-million dollar purses if you win that bet. Probably cooler just to say you made that bet an won compared to the payoff. (Unless you ****** off your kid and he doesn't give you anything).

    Werd. That's just his gamblin' money after that (or hookers. I'm sure Rory doesn't want his dad spending HIS money like that).
