Naturally, match fixing started from gambling that put up with a high price. This is proven if gamblers dare to pay players, referees, and club administrators with large amounts.

In Pandit's writing, which discusses how the mafia runs match fixing described as a gambler's dirty act in defrauding the bookie. In other words, in this context the city becomes the victim.

The problem with all of this, of course, stems from gambling. Managed or not managed, legal or illegal, gambling in a dirty way is unavoidable and inevitably there are several parties who are also dragged into it.

There are times when we as football fans The screen watching the match was accompanied by coffee sachets and cigarettes on the fingers to remember the lyrics of “Judi”, the song of the king of dangdut Rhoma Irama.
