Players, Not Just Kids, are at Risk with AFL Gambling
Previously, 2ser talked about the effects gambling advertising can have on children. Now it seems AFL players are also at risk. Recently, Collingwood star player Jaidyn Stephenson faced a record penalty for betting. The AFL found him placing same game multi-bets in three matches that he played in. (Talk about incentive to play.) With more rumors about two players gaining gambling debt, could the AFL have a gambling problem?
The Daily was joined by Dr Sally Gainsbury, an Associate Professor researching addiction at the University of Sydney, to talk to about AFL players at risk of problem gambling.
