    Once forbidden, gambling now embraced by NFL...

    Gambling has gone from the forbidden topic in the NFL to a key part of the league’s present and future. The days of lobbying against widespread legalized sports betting, preventing broadcast partners from even discussing point spreads and even prohibiting players from holding a fantasy football convention because it was at a casino are firmly in the past.


    With a team playing in Las Vegas just a short walk from the casinos on The Strip, sponsorship deals with gambling companies who pay millions for in-game advertisements and teams having sports books next to their stadiums, the relationship between America’s richest sports league and gambling is stronger than ever.


    “The NFL has evolved quickly with the growing importance of sports betting on the overall ecosystem,” said Robert Fishman, a senior analyst with MoffettNathanson, a division of SVB Securities. “Sports betting is continuing to grow in importance and will continue to be a driver of growth. We’re still in the very early days and there will be a natural evolution of how this continues to grow.”

    Gambling has been condoned ever since they made teams announce who was available to play. Why would that be necessary unless it helps a bettor.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our nation
