Re(6): I agree with Jim, but Mike W sums it up best.....

Yes, William, that probably is the case. The Fronton certainly can terminate the player but it would be up to the the state to press charges. Also, I agree with you about most game fixing cases involve months of investigation. Could the actions this so-called Jai alai player be construed as criminal? I guess it would depend on how the overseer from the Racing and Athletic Commission interpreted his actions. But again, if that happened in Newport I'm pretty confident that he would have been removed from play immediately after he intentionally threw the ball into the curtain after arguing the tipped ball call. He would have been done for the day. He wouldn't have been given the opportunity to come back out in subsequent games and dump shots. He would have been given a stiff fine and suspension or possibly even terminated (enter players union). If not terminated, he probably would not be invited back for the next season. Ramon didn't f**k around. Neither did the guy from the state R&AC.
