Football fans took to social media to give their reaction to Peterborough director of football Barry Fry getting suspended from football activity due to betting…
Shock horror. Guaranteed he’s been doing it for years

How is betting on your own team illegal? It's a confidence boost for your players and staff.

Barry Fry has been a total laughing stock for many years, surprised he's not been caught before, good riddance to him

@talkSPORTDrive where is the equality in punishments from the FA? Barry Fry gets a 4 month ban with 3 of those suspended for betting infringements yet Joey Barton basically had his career all but ended for doing the same thing rules are rules regardless of the amounts involved

Barry Fry suspended for betting on his own club to be promoted and one of his own players to win golden boot.
I fail to see how backing the success of his own club is a bad thing?

The social media reaction continued…
He bet on his own player to be the division's top scorer to cover the bonus he'd have to pay him if he was the division's top scorer.
That's possibly the most Barry Fry thing ever.

Tip of a huge iceberg, gambling is so much part of sports nowadays, sponsorship, club owners, it won't go away anytime soon, he got caught, 100's more won't, and will continue to do it.

Never liked him. Forget his persona in front of the camera, it's all fake. Fry is arrogant, obnoxious & up his own arse. He's very, very dislikeable.
