Not really in the spirit of the game though is it, deliberately kicking the ball out from kick-off to earn a bit on the side. 

But by the same token it's not playing against the interests of your team

Is betting on the time of the first throw in really playing against the best interests of his team?

So your own team having possession and kicking it out for a throw on purpose is in the best interests of your team is it?

 

Have you seen the meltdown on here if Dawson happens to find touch with a kick whilst aiming for a forward on the line.....yet you reckon it’s ok for one of the Countries  best outfield players at time to do it on purpose

 

Strange

Not sure you understand how football works.

I understand that a ball going out for a throw in early in the game doesn't affect the outcome of the match.

 

But you carry on with your faux outrage if it makes you happy.

I've seen you have plenty of meltdowns on here.

Your first paragraph contradicts itself. Thanks for showing how much you know

It might not happen very often but teams do score goals in the opening minute or two of a game every now and again. Trying to deliberately kick the ball into touch for the first two minutes will negate a teams chances of doing that.

 

But if you're happy that hard up top flight footballers needed to supplement their income in this way far enough, each to their own.

Probably been done to make it more diverse, but of those that have gone, I would only feel slightly sorry for Charlie, but even then he's not that knowledgeable on a few things.

 

I expect Clinton, Sue Smith and one other unless they just go with 3 whilst social distancing is needed

Is that Hillary or Bill Clinton?

Cashley Cole currently on Sky. Fink, wiv, futbler, why can't we have pundits who at least speak somewhere near English?

 

I hear a few that say “futbuller” or “futbowl” but I think it’s just a southerner/accent thing to be fair.

One of the dumbest things I've read on here

Really?

 

How many times have you watched a match and, when the ball goes out for a throw in for the first time, you switch off because the whole outcome of the game is decided?

I am doubtful it would be possible for me to make you change your mind on your post condoning a player messing around with the integrity of the game so what's the point of debating? Only way you'll change your mind is if enough people tell you they disagree

So Le Tissier bet on the first throw in yeah?

 

I'll agree it's not in the spirit of the game, but no way would it affect the outcome of any game.

 

See if you can debate without resorting to petty insults.

Anything that happens within the game can affect the outcome of the game. If he kicks the ball out he's given the other team possession. That's not good is it?

This was an example of both spot fixing and spread betting. The former refers to the placing of a wager on an event within a sporting contest that is unrelated to the final outcome.

 

From the official account of the incident. I'll ask again, because last time you resorted to insulting me, but when you watch a match, do you switch off after the first thrown in because the outcome of the match has been decided?

What if they scored from the possession he gave away?

I think you're trying too hard to be outraged.

 

What if, after the opponents scored from him giving possession away, he scores from the resulting kick off?
