What rule or etiquette has he broken if they split up 3 weeks ago and she's on the market?
What appropriate amount of time should he have waited? 4 weeks? 5?
What the start point though?
Does being a team-mate have to amount to being a friend? If it was a West Coast player, does that somehow make it immediately OK?
I understand that clubs' get-togethers may be somewhat difficult for one or maybe all parties, but that's just bad luck. He wasn't married was he?

There's no right, nor wrong time frame is there, as every situation is different and every individual will take things on in a different manner.

AFL are investigating betting irregularities from two games in Round 20. 1 game had more then 10 times the expected outlay on it and another game close to that. Round 20 of the AFL season was the biggest betting round in AFL this year and not by a little bit either. The second biggest this year for example was half of what Round 20 was.

I cant see corrupt Gil doing anything about this though

Even if this is true, it isn't necessarily anything nefarious. Especially considering the relatively low amounts bet on AFL compared to other sports.

I'm assuming the games of interest would be:

Essendon-Port: someone may have known something was rotten at bomberland, Port opened the betting around 2.9 and started the game around 2.30; so big money was definitely bet on Port, and a lot could have then been bet on the other side once the odds stabilised to lock in a profit
Adelaide-St Kilda: this was the game a few saints players were reported to have a virus
Freo-Geelong: Geelong odds actually came in over the week for Geelong, despite losing quite tamely
Giants-Swans: Giants were looking pretty weak and started way too short

Another thing that could skew the betting stats is big multis getting up. Eg. If some punter wins 300k from some multi and had the afl as a last leg (or two), does the bookie treat that multi as a say 200k bet on the last leg? (which it effectively is) That bookie then hedging their position with other bookies/exchanges increases turnover even further.

Big punters experimenting in the betfair market is another way that stats could easily be skewed. Especially at low odds.
