    I'd have preferred him to shoot himself in that scenario tbh.

    Sameras was ruined by fucking Poll in the Toon game on his debut, he scored and was disallowed never had the balls after that.

    The Gambling conglomerates are so closely associated to the media that I'd expect nothing else, the journos know exactly which side there bread is buttered!!

    Thought i heard today, that Barton had already been warned about his betting, by the FA.
    Should've listened.

    At the end of the day they've made an example of this. They've basically said 'bet on your own professional sport and there's a real good chance you'll be ending your career'. I've no problem with this. It's always a bit shitty if you happen to be the one chosen when the precedents set - but that's life. Set the punishment too low and nothing changes.

    The argument that the punishment's severe because loads of people have got away with a similar thing makes no difference. That's like complaining to the courts that your speeding fine is too excessive or unfair on the basis that you know tons of other people who speed and don't get caught.
