I'm sure you'd like to think again change the offensive word.

Luton-Millwall's the stand out tie in the 5th Round for all the wrong reasons. Great draw for LUAFC.

Matchfixing in Football.

"A Champions League tie played in England is one of 380 matches across Europe investigators say was fixed.

Some 425 match officials, club officials, players and criminals are suspected of being involved."

There are differnt scales of "fixing" though.

1. An associate once told me that he went years ago to a game where, from the kickoff, a forward passed the ball back to a defender who immediately booted it into touch. It seemed obvious that someone had a side-bet on the time of the first throw-in. That's not acceptable but it's not fixed the result of the game.

2. The English club that is being investigated need not have been involved in any scam. The away side might have come to lose.

I'm sure some people said the same about RL after the Long/Gleeson affair or Andrew Johns and his drugs arrest.

In RL, without P and R it must have been an infection rotten-ness rather than a contagious rotten-ness

There isn't a single professional sport that hasn't been 'influenced' by gamblers and/or gambling.

The former was especially common in the early years of online gambling when in-play markets came into being.
