They've certainly brought dishonour onto the club. Thanoj, if he's allowed to stay, won't be any use this season. I wonder if getting Spokes was in anticipation of this. And there are rumours of a winger coming in. Did anyone see Thanoj or Rollins at the ground on Saturday, a game I had to miss? I don't recall seeing them v Guiseley.

On the FA website it appears that Rollins was charged with placing more bets than Thanoj, yet he gets one month and Thanoj gets five. I presume the verdict must have something to do with the type of bets, not that I know anything about it!

I imagine they'd see betting on matches you play in (or your club is involved in) as worse. Not saying this is the case here, but it's a possibility.
I create YouTube videos (BUFC/FM/CM 01-02), and stream Football Manager on Twitch as BostonUnitedFM.

Terry Hawkridge also listed on that FA page in relation to betting. No longer our player, but would have been with us at the time the bets were placed.

Wasn't Dimaio named originally as well?

Terry's bets were before his time with us, as were Conor's and probably most of Andi's. Seems very odd that 4 players on our books get shopped at the same time while all quiet at other clubs... we can't be the only club who has players who broke the rules!

I feel the same, Swineshead Pilgrim, have we been targeted?

Ofcourse we have - give a dog a bad name!  Obviously we are still suffering from the fat fraud's era.

Willie Gamble?

Apparently, yes he will.

Targeted or not, I do wonder what some footballers have between their ears.

I don't buy into the conspiracy theory stuff. More likely an internal thing - one of them got found out and the rest owned up too, wipe the slate clean.

I see what you're saying,  but too many things have happened over recent years to be a coincidence.  I love a good conspiracy theory  ;D
