Just a scum bag. Trying to get a non league player sent off, completely shameful. I am sure the Lincoln player wouldn't have gone down had Barton not started it earlier.

Gray, dobbins, jug ears, dobbins. Lincoln were the better team in the 45 mins I watched.
Just seen it,bloody embarrassing enough if it was a league game but against Lincoln City? Should be ashamed of himself after all he's meant to be a tough guy isn't he.

Getting knocked out by a Lincoln couldn't happen to a better guy. Stamps on a guys foot and gets away with it rakes his finger nails across the guys face runs into an arm and only gets a Yellow Card. Lucky, lucky guy.

Wonder if he had a bet on a Lincoln win
If the ref doesn't mention it in his report. Hopefully the **** gets a retrospective ban.

Shameful, he tried his best to get that Lincoln bloke sent off.
Stamping on his foot then rolling around as if he'd been hit.
He's a f'kin disgrace, Burnley should kick his backside out of their club.

:imwith: Hang your head in shame hard man
He's no hard man he is a prat he's just a windup merchant who hopes others react to him and get themselves booked or sent off.

The FA should look at his antics in match against Lincoln, I think there are at least 3 times before he was booked that he should have been booked. So retrospective punishment would not be wrong.

He tried to say afterwards that he was ducking under the bloke, accidentally copped one and went down etc etc.

Add fukking liar to his resume that already includes thug, yob, scum bag, jail bird and occasional half decent footballer.

Burnley hardly conduct themselves in a moral way. See Tarkowski etc.

I would have thought if he had half a brain he would have said What a dickhead I was or I've embarrassed myself there but true to form he goes on the attack saying he's amazed how people are obsessed with what he does and people should worry about their own lives.This from a bloke who beats a path to any media door he can find and a serial tweeter

If the FA weren't a bunch of useless Twunts they'd just ban him for the rest of the season for all of that cheating in one match. Actually send out a message that it's not acceptable for once.

Joey Barton said to be devastated about 18 month ban from football for gambling, as he had £20 on it being 2 years.

Read the statement from him it is very interesting and he has been utterly stitched up by the FA in my opinion.

They've retired him for absolutely nothing, and if he says people have been banned for less for betting in matches they actually played then it seems more than harsh

Makes the very good point if they are so desperate to not get so involved with betting why do they let so many clubs be sponsored by gambling sites

I hope he wins his appeal, and I dont even like him.

He did play in matches he bet on though.
Personally I hope he loses if he appeals as he should have been banned for other things anyway.
It's not a good point about letting clubs be sponsored by gambling operators. Earning revenue from gambling sponsorship is fine because that's completely unrelated to betting on matches which he has insider knowledge of or can actually affect with his performances whilst in the game itself. It's akin to insider trading in many ways. It's a desperate excuse from a nasty piece of work that holds no water.

"One thing I can state with absolute certainty – I have never placed a bet against my own team when in a position to influence the game, and I am pleased that in all of the interviews with the FA, and at the hearing, my integrity on that point has never been in question"

I hardly think it is a "desperate excuse"

He's still been involved in the game, and whilst not AS bad, it's still not right.
He's bet on himself to score first for example. If a teammate is in a prime position to score and he can put it on a plate for him he could choose to shoot instead. So basically that statement he makes above is completely wrong.
This is aside from the other reason it's unacceptable anyway.

FA rules are perfectly clear with no ambiguity. Footballers are not allowed to bet on football games.

He may attempt to justify things however in this he is totally in the wrong, yes the sentence is long, however the FA are taking a stance and sending out a very clear message.

Unlike Wibs I hope he fails in his appeal

Its 0-0, last minute of the game and you are awarded a penalty. If you score you are promoted, if you miss you are in the play offs. After an unseemly scrum you wrestle the ball off the club captain and penalty taker. The penalty crashes against the bar and away.....


Oh hold on:eek:

It is the sentence I object to, not the principal

He said he wasn't playing in the games he had a bet on...seems a very harsh punishment to me especially as he's offered mitigating circumstances in his addiction.was betting not allowed back in 06? I personally think it's a harsh sentence because of who he is as other cases have had much lighter sentences albeit for not as many offences.

It goes around it comes around, there are some players that you know will just keep popping up for all the wrong reasons, and JB is one of those. Deserves all he gets and more imo - the rules are very clear.

i changed my mind several times on that spelling. I would have bet money I'd choose the wrong spelling, except Banana doesnt allow it as part of the rules of being a GPGer

apparently including on games where he played.

Seems a fair enough punishment in the circs (especially if you add his history into the mix(
A fair punishment would be a lifetime ban from any activity connected with football on this or any other member of fifa.

As much as I don't like him, the guy has a destructive addiction and I don't think punishing him so severely is a particularly sensible approach.

The 34-year-old, currently registered as a player with Burnley in the Premier League, accepted Football Association charges that accused him of having placed 1,260 bets on football matches between 2006 and 2013. This figure included at least five matches in which Barton was a player. Professional footballers are banned from making any bets on their own sport.

Harsh. Average stake is the same as someone on £30k pa betting £1.20 and some would equate to as little as 4p ! Barton clearly has an addictive personality and is lucky he had least had the sense to keep stakes affordable, he offered plenty of mitigating circumstances , the punishment is draconian and shows no understanding of the "crime", biggest of which was stupidity.

10 years of breaking the rules = 1.5 year punishment.

Seems fair to me.

Man with appalling track record across the board breaks rules and gets punished, shocker. Glad he's finally out of the game

If it's true he bet on his own club to lose then it's a more than fair outcome.

The average stake is irrelevant. He knows it's against the rules. He does it anyway, repeatedly, and in matches in which he's playing.

It's also to reiterate the message that it's not acceptable as a lesser punishment would not serve as the intended deterrent.

As mentioned earlier, a lower league manager was banned until 2019, despite them being satisified there was no match-fixing aspect.

Plus he's been warned previously by the FA about related actions and then given them grief publicly:
http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/qpr-joey-barton-slams-fa-3310678

I'm only surprised that the FA have finally punished him with a half decent measure as opposed to the usual token fine which is irrelevant to a footballer.

Karma finally catches up with the odious oik.
