A non-league coach in England has been banned for three years for gambling, including betting on his own team to lose.
Nick Bunyard, former manager of Frome Town, is either not very good at managing, or not very good at gambling, or both.
Here is an actual quote from Bunyard in the Western Daily Press:
"I've accepted that I have on occasions bet on us to lose and that it was done via insider knowledge, but that's not to say I wanted us to lose.
Oh that's rich.
You shouldn't bet against your own team. Unless they're really bad and you think you could win some money.
