If this had been done by a Swindon player I feel the club and player would have recieved a more severe punishment.

Banned from the cup for a fair few years for starters.

Whilst i do not condone the behavior, 6 years seems a lot. Murderers and Rapists get less time in prison with some back playing football in a couple or years.

Isn't that fraud, not really match fixing?

No sympathy either way. Sets a clear message.

Interesting point, rip off the bookies or the bank and your in for a long spell. Rape children and murder people and back out on licence in a few years. I suppose the problen is does the punishment fit the crime?

He's not going to prison, he's just not allowed to play football for money.
