A plan to use the sails of the World Heritage-listed Sydney Opera House to promote Australia’s richest horse race, despite objections from its management, has sparked a firestorm of criticism.Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the Sydney Opera House is a great billboard, but opponents of the racing promotion say it is a sell-out to the country’s gambling industry.The furore erupted after the New South Wales state government over ruled the Opera House management’s objections to projecting the barrier draw of the A$13 million ($9 million) Everest Cup onto the Sydney Opera House sails on Tuesday night.The decision came after one of the nation’s top radio ‘shock jocks’, Alan Jones, called on the Opera House’s boss to resign or be sacked for objecting to the promotion. Jones is regarded by many politicians as having great influence over voters.Nearly 165,000 people had signed an online petition as of Monday against using the Opera House for the promotion, which has dominated social media in Australia. Opponents plan a flashlight protest on Tuesday to try and disrupt the lightshow.Morrison, who supports the promotion for Saturday’s Everest Cup, said he couldn’t understand why people were so upset.“It’s not like they’re painting it on there. I mean it’s some lights flashing up there for a brief moment of time. And that goes all around the world,” Morrison said on radio broadcaster Alan Jones’ show.Anti-gambling advocates deplored using the Opera House to promote gambling in a country that has the world’s highest gambling losses per adult. Nearly A$24 billion ($16.93 billion) was lost last year on sports betting, slot machines and casinos.“Gambling destroys lives and has no place being displayed on the sails of the Opera House,” said Elizabeth Smits, one of the thousands who signed the online petition.The Opera House declined to comment on the controversy, referring all queries to the state government.Opposition Labor leader Bill Shorten said Australians were understandably concerned about turning the Opera House into a billboard.“I would say to Prime Minister Morrison, you’re not a marketing executive. You’re the prime minister of Australia and that involves the obligation to respect our national icons,” Shorten told reporters on Monday.The Opera House sails have been used in art installations and to advertise events such as the Rugby Union World Cup, but not for commercial advertising.

Edinson Cavani 1 Chelsea target Edinson Cavani could be available on the ‘cheap’ – with the striker failing to win over the Paris Saint-Germain supporters.The Uruguayan has so far failed to reproduce at PSG the devastating form he showed at previous clubs Palermo and Napoli and as a result he is often being forced out wide to play second fiddle behind main man Zlatan Ibrahimovic.The Swedish superstar was absent for Sunday’s turgid 1-1 draw with Monaco, through injury, but Cavani failed to shine when given his preferred role down the middle and with the spotlight firmly on him.A post-match poll among PSG fans asked if the Uruguay striker is worth his £50m price-tag and a resounding 71 per cent said NO.Manchester United were interested in Cavani in the summer but their loan deal with Falcao looks to have ended that association.Chelsea, who only have veteran Didier Drogba until the end of the season, could add the 27-year-old to their squad to compete with Diego Costa and Loic Remy.

Mino Raiola has aimed a fresh barb at Jurgen Klopp on talkSPORT – but has insisted he is happy to do business with Liverpool again.The super-agent blasted Klopp as a ‘piece of s***’ to Italian media over his treatment of Mario Balotelli after he had negotiated a deadline day move away from Anfield for the striker.And he was in no mood to apologise for his outburst when he joined Jim White on his debut show on Monday, saying: “At the end of the day he [Balotelli] was a player of Liverpool and you need to treat him with respect – and he [Klopp] didn’t do that.“Mario asked several times to have a friendly match. You can train all you want but, at the end of the day, you need 90 minutes, you need a friendly. He never considered him for 60 days.“I’m not judging him as a trainer – I don’t like him as a trainer at all – but you have to let him play.”Raiola insists he will continue to be outspoken, and has no fears that his criticism of Klopp will affect any potential dealings with Liverpool.He added: “I don’t need to go to Klopp to do business. If Klopp wants a player that I represent and he wants to talk to me, good. If he doesn’t want to talk to me then I can say to my player: ‘he doesn’t want to talk to me, you can choose another agent or go with a lawyer’.“I will never be standing in the middle of the interest of my player but it doesn’t mean I have to shut up when I see things are not being done in a good way.“I have no problem to talk to Liverpool tomorrow and offer them one of my players. If I have to be afraid of speaking out my mind because I lose a deal, then I lose my powers. I’d rather go walking through life than living on my knees.”RELATED: LISTEN: Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent tells talkSPORT a £200million transfer is closeMino Raiola tells talkSPORT he was working on Paul Pogba’s move to Manchester United for a YEAR
The upcoming video game “Need for Speed Carbon” will have more than just gleaming sports cars and streets to race on: Drivers also will be speeding past real-time advertisements for upcoming films, automobiles and other products. Like many other games, previous versions of “Need for Speed” had static ads and product placements that cannot be changed once the game was packaged and sold on store shelves. But with “Need for Speed Carbon,” available in late October, players with PCs connected to the Internet or using Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox Live service will see ads that change over time. In two deals announced Thursday, Electronic Arts Inc. said it will start bringing dynamic ads to its video games for the Xbox 360 and PC platforms this fall. The ads can even be tailored to target specific regions, such as the United States or Europe, company officials said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

For gamers, it means once-static billboards or posters in the game worlds might instead promote an upcoming film one day and a brand of soft drink the next. The moves come as video games are increasingly seen as an important way for advertisers and marketers to reach the elusive 18- to 34-year-old demographic, a group in which many have switched off television in favor of games, Massive Chief Executive Mitch Davis said. Chip Lange, EA’s vice president of online commerce, said it was important that the ads don’t disrupt a player’s experience.
