Kind of a lost day for me as the legal job sapped the afternoon away, but let’s close on an amusing note, shall we?
For weeks now, Delaware’s sports betting, under the umbrella of the state lottery, has received major criticism. The NFL has been at the reigns of the opposition, and now the verbal hostilities have come to the culmination of a law suit. The class action suit lists the NFL, the NHL, the NBA, the NCAA, and the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball as the plaintiffs. They seek to challenge the constitutionality of Delaware’s “Sports betting scheme” as it pertains to not only the federal scale, but also Delaware’s own constitution.
The plaintiffs claim that the sports betting “scheme” is an affront to professional sports. They claim that sports betting undermines the morality of professional sports, leading to the risk of corruption.
1. What do the NFL’s television ratings look like if no one gambled on football?
2. How many baseball teams run ads from casinos?
We’re both part of the same hypocrisy, senator . . .
