Football’s problematic gambling association

Craig Foster writes that gamblings influence on the game poses problems after betting was used as a reason for a milder punishment than might have otherwise been handed down to the Glory at the end of the Salary Cap saga.

That it certainly is, and therein is the problem when sports accept money from the gambling industry, but not nearly as problematic as allowing betting companies or sponsors to influence decision-making of major professional competitions in order to avoid financial liability on bets they took knowing full well that penalties relating to breaches of competition rules are an industry hazard.

That, friends, is the very definition of problematic.
