"Compulsive gamblers are very vulnerable during the NFL post season because they are looking for the 'lock bet,' Wexler says. "The media hype juices the gambler and -- as this is an impulse disorder -- many compulsive gamblers will be in action. And I wonder if any players might have a bet on the games. " 

"With all the games and the media hype about odds and betting lines, there is an explosion of betting on these games," Wexler continues. "I can't believe that newspapers carry ads from these so-called handicappers, who are really 'scandicappers.'
And dont carry a # for gamblers 2 get help  like  888 LAST BET
 
"I remember when Skip Ballis, then of the Dallas Morning News, had a gorilla in the Dallas Zoo make football picks for them," Wexler says. "The gorilla's picks were doing better than the sports writers. I think the responsible thing to do would be for newspapers, radio and TV shows to carry a public service message. " 

 What do you think would happen to the t v ratings if there were no gambling on N F L GAMES 



"I have spoken to more compulsive gamblers than anyone else in America and have gotten hundreds of phone calls after playoff games and the Super Bowl from compulsive gamblers," Wexler says. "Some have spoken about embezzlements, white-collar crimes and destroying themselves and their families. Others were so desperate that they were contemplating suicide. " 

"Over the years, I have also spoken to many college and professional athletes who had a gambling problem," Wexler says. "In fact, an NCAA study a few years ago noted that there is a disturbing trend of gambling among athletes in college. Do you think that these people will get into the pros and then just stop gambling? "
