    Things are sure heating up in Europe over this.

    The EU will doubtlessly have something to say about that.

    ATE online reports today also:

    Hill threatens Greece with European Court
    William Hill warned the Greek government that it will go to the European court should it fail to get permission to establish outlets in the country. Chief Executive David Harding said that the matter would escalate if the bookmaker hadn't heard anything within three months.

    Oh yeah. The EU will definitely have something to say about this. They've been very clear in that borders need to be opened up to foreign sportsbook operators.
