30k fine also.
Before he is getting a ban that long. must of bet on games he was playing in.


In his statement he said he never bet on his team losing if he was playing. He did bet
on them losing if he was not involved in the game.
I'm sure Ian Black bet on his team losing in games he was playing - that should be sine die ban.
There ends Barton's playing career.

Ian Black bet on three matches he was involved in - 3 game ban.

Not accurate. He has admitted betting on games he played in.

http://www.telegraph...8-month-fa-ban/

 

 

First, in every game I have played, I have given everything. I’m confident that anyone who has ever seen me play, or played with or against me, will confirm that to be the case. I am more aware than anyone that I have character issues that I struggle with, and my addictive personality is one of them, but I am a devoted and dedicated professional who has always given my all on the pitch.
 
Second, on the few occasions where I placed a bet on my own team to lose, I was not involved in the match day squad for any of those games. I did not play. I was not even on the bench. I had no more ability to influence the outcome than had I been betting on darts, snooker, or a cricket match in the West Indies. I should add that on some of those occasions, my placing of the bet on my own team to lose was an expression of my anger and frustration at not being picked or being unable to play. I understand people will think that is childish and selfish and I cannot disagree with that.
 
Third, I should point out that the last of these bets against my own team was six years ago (and in a reserve game), when I was going through a particularly troubled period, and when the FA were not nearly as hard on gambling as they are now.
 
One thing I can state with absolute certainty – I have never placed a bet against my own team when in a position to influence the game, and I am pleased that in all of the interviews with the FA, and at the hearing, my integrity on that point has never been in question. I could not live with myself, nor face my team-mates or the fans of the clubs I played for, if they seriously thought I would bet on my team to lose a game whose outcome I could influence.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Not clear there whether he bet on his team to win right enough.

While betting for your team to lose while playing is unforgivable from a supporter context, and he seems to think he should be commended for that, he seems to focus just on that. 

 

He doesn't mention if there was any other kind of betting that he did that didn't depend on match result that he could influence.  Yellow cards/red cards, corners, etc etc. 

 

Still the potential there from a sporting integrity perspective, if he is betting on such things, that he is making decisions in a game accordingly.  Will be interesting to see why the FA came out with such a long ban, when they give their reasoning.
