Jordan Steven handed a 6 week ban from all footballing activity by the FA, for breach of betting regulations.
Ok, he's been a bit silly with what he's done, but have to agree with the club statement, that to ban a youth player from everything including training at the club, is just ridiculous. Should have just been a very harshly worded warning and a fine, not an outright ban from football! The FA are corrupt too!

Bright 2 points. First, they're trying to make him feel the punishment so banning him from the first team or U-23s isn't enough when they know he isn't going to be featuring in the first team just yet. However, banning him from showing up to the football club for a little time certainly harsh but I think they're trying to set a deterrent. That can only be a good thing. Second, they know he plays for Leeds! Name me an LUFC player who ever received a lenient sentence from the authorities. You'll struggle.

so For someone who may already be struggling with gambling addiction the solution is to prevent them from working or being around people that are a positive influence. Surely this isn’t the greatest approach anyway? Hope the club offer him full support.

Alf He was around the same positive people when he placed the bets. I'm all for rehabilitation but good old-fashioned punishment is still useful. I'm sure he'll keep fit during his short sabbatical.

Maybe those people didn’t know about it at the time George. I am also a fan of punishment when needed but mental health can be a trickier landscape to negotiate.

Get a grip guys its 6 weeks not hard labour.

Well said Alf. I have a gambling addiction but fortunately I’ve learned to be more selective in my betting over time and working in the gaming industry can give me a slight edge. Hasn’t stopped me losing thousands on Leeds to be promoted for the last fifteen years though 😩.

And don't forget if Jordan's got six weeks with nothing to do, he'll have plenty of time to study the form! 😂😂.
