NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says Congress should enact uniform standards for any states that plan to legislate sports betting.Goodell detailed the league’s position in a statement Monday that reiterated the NFL’s stance that legalized sports gambling in the United States should be governed by federal law rather than state law. The Supreme Court ruled last week to strike down a 1992 law that barred most state-authorized sports gambling.In suggesting four core principles that should be maintained for any form of legalized sports betting Levine Toilolo Jersey , Goodell stressed that leagues can “protect our content and intellectual property from those who attempt to steal or misuse it.” He also said guidelines must provide substantial consumer protections; ensure fans will have access to official, reliable league data; and that law enforcement will have the resources, monitoring and enforcement tools necessary “to protect our fans and penalize bad actors here at home and abroad.”After emphasizing the importance of protecting the integrity of his sport, Goodell noted the NFL has been planning for the potential of legalized sports gambling in states other than Nevada.“(We) are prepared to address these changes in a thoughtful and comprehensive way, including substantial education and compliance trainings for our clubs, players, employees and partners,” he said. “These efforts include supporting common sense legislation that protects our players, coaches and fans and maintains public confidence in our games.”The NFL has long opposed any forms of gambling on its games, though it has approved the move of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas in 2020, and has strong ties to fantasy football Christian Jones Jersey , which is not tied to the Supreme Court decision.Many sports leagues have expressed concerns about the varied betting rules each state could pass, where bets could be placed, and who would be overseeing them.Those leagues also believe they are entitled to an “integrity fee.” The easiest way to arrange for a cut of the proceeds would be negotiating with Congress rather than deals with individual states. If it passed a nationwide bill, Congress could require casinos, tracks or state governments to share some of their revenue with the sports leagues — or pay the integrity fees, designed to cover the costs of policing betting.——AP Writer Wayne Parry contributed.Tuesday open thread: Would you approve of an 18-game, 2 preseason game schedule? The Detroit Lions were one of the lucky ones. Despite an overall unwatchable preseason performance, the Lions escaped the exhibition season without any truly devastating injuries. Other teams weren’t as lucky.So like every single year, discussion arose about shortening—or even ending—the preseason in the future. The most common solution to this perceived problem is fairly simple: Shorten the preseason by two games and add those games to the regular season, creating an 18-game schedule. Cowboys and referee owner Jerry Jones publicly pushed for this move last week.“My solution is real simple, cut back on preseason games Devon Kennard Jersey ,” Jones said on a local radio station. “Have one at each team’s home, play a couple of them and then add two games to the regular season, which I’ve been a proponent of for several years. That’s a better equity or a better way of players using what they bring to the table, their talents, their skills, their professional time in pro sports. That’ll give them a bigger pay day that’s fair. The other thing it does is it certainly gives our fans what we all think they deserve and that is a competitive game.”The idea is admittedly intriguing, since no NFL fans enjoy the preseason, but is Jerry brushing over some unintended consequences? Today’s Question of the Day is:Would you approve of an 18-game regular season, two-game preseason?My answer: No, I don’t think I would. I understand preseason football is unwatchable, and I hate that season ticket holders have to pay for those games. That last part should absolutely be fixed. But if you’re forcing players to play two more games a season—and 12.5 percent increase in games—you better expect to bump players salary by that number.Jerry Jones argues that an 18-game schedule is safer Isaac Nauta Detroit Lions Jersey , because his studies show that injury rate is higher in the preseason than the regular season, which I’m honestly hesitant to believe. Let’s be honest, Jones has plenty motive to straight-out lie here, because he stands to benefit from two more regular season games that will undoubtedly bring in more money for him. But even if what Jones says it’s true, the chances of starters getting injured in a season undoubtedly increase with a longer schedule, and that’s why the players would almost certainly never go for it.If you want to shorten the preseason, that’s something that I think almost everyone can get behind. But adding those two games to the regular season is just a transparent cash grab. I say nay.
