Personally don't have an issue of players backing themselves, however clearly backing their opponents should be cracked down and as far as I am concerned Long and Gleeson are very lucky to still be playing league, should have been done for life IMO
This is an issue I have a strong opinion on and something I have gone into quite deeply at the site I help run cappersmall.
Basically for the future survival and well being of sports and sportsbetting, the powers that be on any sport need to come down on such cases as the Long and Gleeson one in a way that acts as a serious deterrent. Life bans would be fine with me too. There have been numerous cases over the years on various sports and a slap with a wet bus ticket like a fine or suspension doesn't cut it. You want to stamp it out life bans are what is required in what should treated very seriously.
