Joe Barton to Become the Champion of the Anti Gambling Lobby in the UK
Joe Barton is a footballer in the UK Premier League, and he received a suspension from playing the game for thirteen months as a result of a breach of regulation. He admitted placing well over 1200 wagers through a ten-year period, and at least five of these wagers were on matches he was a part of on the field. It seems that things have changed for the player, as he is going to be the champion of the anti-gambling lobby of the UK, which is not a surprise, as Joe Barton has never been the kind of person who follows a straightforward road.
Joe Barton gave a lengthy statement where he said that the governing bodies of the sports have to accept and acknowledge the existence of a clash between the culture and their rules. Whoever is watching football on TV or at the Stadium will come across many wagering ads and sponsorship by the wagering companies. The statement of Joe Barton, despite his past, struck a chord and many welcomed his words, especially GambleAware, which is a charity organization that aims to minimize any gambling-resulting harm in the country.
Last June, the Football Association ended its 4 million per year deal with Ladbrokes, the bookmaker. It stated that it could no longer justify having a wagering operator as a business partner. Such decision, when combined with the statement of Joe Barton and his attack on the relationship between Football and gambling, gives a momentum to the anti-gambling movement in the United Kingdom.
