So the NRL has finally gone 'public' - more or less NRL draws a line in the sand on betting

Though I'm a tad confused by these two statements


Chief Operating Officer Jim Doyle said today an audit of betting records covering more than 1500 registered players, officials and staff found no evidence of serious abuse of the betting laws or match fixing.



But the NRL had imposed a range of suspensions, terminations and warnings to those who have breached the betting rules.

Can't have it both ways Mr Doyle ?


And of course the continued incorrect calls & video blunders by 'officials'


In addition, three casual game day officials have been terminated and nine others suspended for the rest of the season for betting breaches.

O O P S !

I'd be reassured by that if it weren't for the detail that suggests otherwise.


That last bit you picked out BR about betting by match day officials is a shocker.

I find it a bit wierd that a sport that goes so much into promoting betting almost to the point that it seems you can bet on anything at any point in the game then bans all its employees from doing it! I think the game would be better off not promoting betting so much like in Australia. It hardly does the image of the sport much good in my opinion
