Podcast: Does the NFL have a gambling problem?
The league (understandably) wants to tap into this treasure trove of a resource, but it comes with a cost.
Gambling has been around since the dawn of professional sports. But it’s never been this easy and this ubiquitous in our culture. With another round of players suspended, including Indianapolis’ Isaiah Rodgers, it’s fair to wonder how bad this could get for the NFL. We explored in the mailbag and continue the conversation here with podcast co-host Jim Monos.
Like all vices, this can be regulated.
Players are all educated on the rules, hypocritical as they may be.
But the owners must maintain the public trust and shudder to think how many lives are being changed for worse around the country.
There are many angles to this conversation. You can access the Go Long Podcast at the links and embeds below and everywhere you get pods.
