Andros Townsend is bad at betting

Spurs midfielder Andros Townsend has been banned from playing football for four months and fined £18,000 for betting on football matches, which apparently you're not allowed to do if you yourself are a footballer.

I don't know an awful lot about what he was betting on but apparently none of the games were ones he was actually playing in, otherwise betting on QPR to lose would have been too easy I guess.  Townsend will now miss the under-21 Euro championship thing but probably won't care because he won £128 on a 4 team accumulator last week.  With a fine of £18,000 to pay, the former QPR player has now made only slightly less money at football betting than I did last weekend.
