Everyone is already talking about the fact that Liverpool player Daniel Sturridge was formally charged for betting on football. Looks, but why not? Since betting on sports cannot belong to the divisions of gambling entertainment, but more are the analytical abilities of people who can fumble in sports for many years and can continuously track them. We will try to find out what this “ban” is connected with.
It turns out that bets cannot be placed on any representative of sports activity, including ordinary workers. It’s not about some kind of addiction: in any case, people who have a cold mind and a sober mind come to betting. It’s about professional ethical standards.
For example, the Liverpool midfielder most likely bet through third parties on the transitions of the player and the coach during the winter transfer time in 2018. Agree, it is somehow ugly to merge corporate data in order to profit from it. In the end, he doesn’t have enough salary?
There were stories somewhere in the United States, in football clubs generally unknown to us, in which the director himself selected similar gamers for his own team, on whom you could make explicit predictions. For example, aggressive football players can collect packs of yellow and red cards every time. For example, in the new non gamstop casinos, there was such a story.
Well, if we take the latest news, then the former football player of “Tottenham” Andros Tausend also appeared in the football bets. So he made a bet directly related to his team. The footballer got off with only a fine of about 20,000 euros. Although the management believed that due to the bet, he was able to influence the outcome of the game.
But these rules do not apply to club owners. Here is the owner of “Newcastle” from time to time bets on winning his own team. He did not speak with the journalists about how much he lost in this case.
Do footballers have the right to bet?
Football rules are very strict – no. At least for the domestic championship games. However, is Michael Owen, whose opinion is given at the beginning of this article, really wrong? Bans on betting on games of the championship in which their own team plays are quite justified. However, why did Martin Demichelis suffer, at that time in 2016, a Manchester City footballer? Since those 20 bets that he made, speaking for the “citizens”, related to foreign championships.
On the one hand, only this made it possible for Dimechelis to avoid the fate of Barton, on the other – is there anything reprehensible in this? A controversial issue. Purists say that football players need to forever discourage even thinking about betting. You can go along with the fine for Northern Ireland footballer Kyle Lafferty for betting on a game in the same league his Norwich City played in. Liberals believe that a gamer should not be a prisoner of conscience and that he has the same opportunities as other citizens.
From this position, they regretted both Dimechelis and Lafferty, for whom the data on rates greatly spoiled their careers. The first completed the performance, the second needed to change the club, and it was not easy for him to do this. Common sense suggested that it is necessary for football players to prohibit betting on the games of championships or cubes where they play, however, to allow them to bet on third-party competitions, to which they have no relation at all. The federations are ruled by purists today, but at least there is hope for a softening.
Most likely, any gamer who constantly made bets at least once could see a similar situation, when one of the opponents “merges” the game. In particular, such situations constantly appear in tennis. This is usually due to the fact that tennis players have a busy work schedule. In such a case, he is able to make a decision already during the first round to complete performance in one of the competitions for better preparation for further. This phenomenon is not uncommon and can be found in the games of the strongest tennis players in the world. In some cases, they can deliberately lose for other reasons, for example, due to severe fatigue, injury, or illness.
However, there are also categories of athletes who can intentionally lose a game or some kind of championship in order to earn extra money on this in the bookmaker’s office. Experienced players know most of the athletes who make this money. For example, tennis player Nikolai Davydenko has long been under suspicion of BC gamers. According to many, he deliberately lost a couple of times to his own opponents. For this reason, it is necessary to bet on such a game very carefully, because every such fight turns out to be unpredictable.
