Degenerate Gamblers Celebrate

The U.S. Supreme Court acted Monday to bust Nevada's monopoly on legal sports betting, allowing more states to get in on the action and reap the tax benefits.

 

The court struck down a federal law that required states to ban gambling on the outcome of sporting events. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was highly unusual: it did not ban sports gambling nationwide as a matter of federal law, but it said the states were not allowed to permit it.

This ruling is the biggest reason the AAF and XFL2.0 are starting up.

And what's kept the Arena Football League's current incarnation alive the past three years.

Does this mean we're about to get bombarded with FanDuel/DraftKings commercials on every network like we did a few years back?

No, not at all. This will be much more pervasive.

If there's a sports commissioner that should be happy about this ... it's Gary BETtman.

Hasn't Adam Silver already said the NBA was considering placing gambling kiosks in the arenas which the league would get a percentage of all the bets placed? Could be a little off on that.

Adam Silver has been a key driving force on the pro sports side, but yes, the NBA wants 1% of all NBA bets taken as a "integrity fee". 

 

The gaming industry doesn't like such a proposal as they claim that 1% off the top ends up reducing their profit unfairly and thus what they pay the state in taxes as it's not tied to revenue. That's also why few states are giving in to such a fee.

 

Read this regarding the pros/cons of such a fee.

Not sure why Andy is coming in so hot on gambling in sports. It's been done since people were feeding Christians to lions, so why the outrage now? I don't gamble - think it's a waste of money - but if some kind of app or embedded TV function would allow me to place a $5 or $10 bet on a game down the road, I may try it out.

People should be able to enjoy their vices as long as it only directly harms themselves.  Even if the vice is dumb like gambling.

"Integrity fees" are a shakedown and are never happening without intense lobbying (you know, bribes) from the leagues
