Cheats should be banned for life!

Post by Major Wedgie » Sun Feb 06, 2011 3:44 pm

Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer have been handed down effectiely five year suspensions for their roles on bowling no balls for money. There are two issues here:
1. Is five years enough punishment?
2. Is betting bad for our sport?

To the former I say any cheating should be a ban for life. To the latter, I say betting is fine as long as it's handled well. Companies who offer gambling on sports should be state licenced and if found involved in match fixing, should be jailed and the company lose it's licence.
