Joe Perry banned over betting

Joe Perry has been given a three month ban- suspended until May 2018 for breaching rules on betting on matches. None of them were on his own matches but were on other matches.

This seems to be happening too often these days. What is everyone's thoughts about this? if a player bets on other matches but not on there own match and have not been involved in any match fixing should they still get banned for this?

I think a ban is fair. What I don't see as fair is the length of the bans. Surely there should be a constant that says if you get caught betting, straight 12 month ban.

I'm pretty sure Perry did actually play in the China Championship last week. So not sure what is going on with the ban then.

Stuart Bingham has been banned for the same thing

The question is, why so stupid to do it in the first place? They know the rules, and there are a lot more other sports to have a bet on if they want to.
