PRO SPORTS AND GAMBLING: WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS?

Effective immediately, as part of the uniform contract, all pro sports and major college officials are forbidden from taking part in sports better, legal or illegal, casino gambling, legal or illegal, on track or off track animal racing betting and all performance betting with the exception of drinks or meals for individual performance activities such as golf, tennis, trapshooting and horseshoes. Once a year, from May 1 through September 1 three officials will be chosen for random confidential audits of their finances and the results will remain confidential unless they disclose financial jeopardy. if the Audit discloses financial jeopardy, confidential counseling will be arranged for help the official achieve a more sound footing. This will be blind to the commissioner and all member teams and institutions.

The same restrictions would apply to new players coming into major professional sports. Nothing would change for the current people.

If they can random drug test, why not random financial jeopardy test? Gambling/Fixing threatens the one thing the sports have to sell which is honest competition. Otherwise, it's just pro wrestling.

Actually I think Dave was taking ICE payments and cheaper insurance rates from two "Coaches" . Freddy's teams in Football & Hoops got 2nd and we feel it was because of POOR calls .

Tookster,

Go Back and reread Steve E's piece in last Saturday's whig about "forgiveness". You gotta let these latent grudges go or you're gonna get PTSD, Hoof and Mouth, and Johnny Robers Shake and Bake, all at the same time!

Start the prayer chain for Tookie!
