Unauthorized signs are known all over the world.
The sign is not complicated. It means no. not allowed. Don’t do it.
Instead of a simple, serious message on gambling, the NFL has taken a left-handed approach to the issue, which causes more problems down the road.
NFL gambling is okay. He has a bad gambling issue.
Saying anything else to league officials could result in a lifetime ban from sports betting.
For the NFL, gambling on any sport should be a serious no. time.
Instead, the league has a strange policy where team employees can bet on other sports while not at NFL facilities.
How can a person in crisis put together such an important message?
Because the league is following the fanatic’s oath.
A few years ago, the league refused to allow players to attend a fantasy football convention in Las Vegas because it was afraid of gambling. It now has official partners in Caesars, DraftKings and FanDuel.
A league that takes money from the gambling industry does not allow players to gamble on games. It’s so funny. People break laws and rules all the time.
But without question, NFL affiliates don’t want to push the anti-gambling message.
This is not a “do as I say, not as I do” situation. The league is not doing a good job of saying what not to do.
Wide receiver Calvin Ridley, formerly of the Falcons, now with the Jaguars, has been suspended for the entire 2022 season after completing a bet that included the team’s parlay wager.
Strong feelings on social networks at the time, stupid attitude, the punishment was very severe.
The games aren’t fixed, but the more people gamble, the more conspiracy theories they have.
Imagination carries more weight than reality in the court of public opinion, where judgments are not based on fact or knowledge.
That could eventually be a serious problem for our favorite sport.
In April, the NFL suspended five players for betting on games. Three players received indefinite bans that could be reinstated after a year for playing in NFL games, and two were banned for six games for betting on other sports from their team’s facility.
This week, the Indianapolis Colts confirmed reports that Isaiah Rodgers is being investigated for gambling activities.
Sortshandle.com reported that Rodgers placed nearly 100 bets through an account started in a friend’s name, including bets on Colts games. Most bets were small, between $25-$50.
Rodgers, who faces at least a one-year ban, said his betting on the games was an “error in judgement”.
There is no gambling rush by NFL players. Due to the legal gambling trend, players are now getting caught.
Five years ago, the Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, saying states could not allow sports gambling. (The thug in “The Last Boy Scout” was buying the Senate vote. He should have gone straight to the Supreme Court.)
In some forms, sports betting is now legal in about 40 states.
Gambling on sports is in a different place than it was in the 1960s when Paul Horning and Alex Karras were banned from the NFL for a year for betting on games.
Few remember when the two future Hall of Famers were kicked out of the league and five of their teammates were fined $2,000 for betting.
They bet $50 each on the Packers to beat the Giants in the 1962 NFL Championship Game.
They didn’t even have smart phones.
Football players cannot be prevented from playing in games. It is not difficult to make the penalties for encouraging gambling more severe.
The league should ban players from any sport just to reduce the desire to switch a player who is losing money elsewhere to a sport he knows.
There are undoubtedly hundreds of NFL players who have played in football games. But there were thousands who did not.
The popularity of the NFL (hence the price) has been used for a long time. Now the relationship is more direct. Direct cash, home.
The Super Bowl, a single game, is the biggest bet of the year in America.
The 2022 Super Bowl between the Rams and Bengals generated $179.8 million in legal wagers at Nevada sportsbooks, for a total of $8 billion.
Nevada’s numbers are down this year, in part because the game is being played in Arizona, one of the first states to legalize sports betting in recent years. The Chiefs-Eagle Super Bowl was the first in a state where sports gambling was legal, and fans were able to place bets on the game at the sports book inside the stadium.
Next year’s Super Bowl will be the first in Las Vegas. The betting numbers will be outrageous.
Of the 2,000 or so players in the NFL, there is no doubt that some players will play in the game.
The NFL shouldn’t need a Tom Brady PSA video for all teams to see this season to tell players that gambling is not allowed at games.
A zero-tolerance policy in plain English should achieve that.
