Officials betting

Post  Isis_au on Wed May 05, 2010 4:24 pm

So this has been the AFL news today. The actual stuff people did was pretty soft (like a marshmallow Cap Wink ) but I was pleased to see the AFL be open about it and crack down on it.

Well the marshmallows may have been your Birthday present Cap but Brad was equally deserving so it's only fair that he got his share.

I'll post an article about the betting.

An AFL goal umpire has been banned for the rest of the season for placing illegal bets on the 2009 grand final as part of a league blitz on gambling.
The AFL confirmed goal umpire Chris Appleton had been stood down for the remainder of the 2010 season for placing four bets worth $60 on the game.
Appleton did not officiate in the match.
In other betting breaches:
- The Western Bulldogs were fined $7500 after club director Geoff Walsh was found to have placed bets;
- Port Adelaide assistant coach Matthew Primus was suspended for two weeks for placing a $20 multi-bet including a NAB Cup match;
- Two interchange stewards were stood down for the rest of the season - one for placing a bet on a match he officiated in and;
- A timekeeper was stood down for five weeks over a $5 bet.
AFL football operations manager Adrian Anderson said Appleton’s four bets were placed at a hotel on behalf of a friend.
But he said Appleton had co-operated fully with the AFL once the breaches were uncovered.
"He fully co-operated with the investigation and accepted that his actions were a serious breach of his duties," Anderson said in a statement.
“All AFL players, coaches, umpires and officials should be in no doubt that betting on the AFL is prohibited.
"As I first stated in March 2007, all players, coaches, umpires and officials are on notice that suspensions are applicable for a breach of the AFL gambling regulations."
Anderson said the Bulldogs were fined for not fully briefing Walsh on the league's rules regarding betting.

I love this bit:

Anderson said the Bulldogs were fined for not fully briefing Walsh on the league's rules regarding betting.[i]

Earlier in the statement it said Walsh was the Club Director.

So they are saying that Walsh should have briefed himself regarding the betting?!?
