46 y.o. Sutton goalkeeper Wayne Shaw was spotted eating pie at publicity. Gambling Commission has started and investigation if there was a violation of betting regulations. And now Shaw admitted that he knew company offered odds of 8-1 against his eating pie while Arsenal winning with 2-0.

Goalkeeper says he heard rumors about 8-1 odds and he didn’t take it seriously. But when Arsenal was winning the game he decided to give fans a bit of banter and do it. “It was meat and potato. And I got it at halftime at the kitchen. We are not allowing for betting, but I think there were a few people who backed the offer” says Shaw.

That kind of banter gave a reason to start an investigation. Intelligence director of Gambling Commission Richard Watson said: “In our sport, integrity isn’t a joke. And now we must establish what exactly happened.”

We can’t be sure if Shaw really had worked out pie trick with a betting company in advance. If that so, he might have had a good payment. And while the investigation continues rumors are spreading too.
