Sports Betting!   And Gambling Addiction Expliosion
 
Supreme Court vote !  We have now opened the door to an explosion  of gambling addiction.
 
  Sports betting can be the gateway to gambling addiction for some people.
  
ANY TIME U ADD OR EXPAND GAMBLING  U OPEN THE DOOR FOR MORE ADDICTION
 
  YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY YOUNG KIDS ARE "GAMBLING" ON FANTACY SPORTS AND ARE ALREADY SEEKING HELP FOR GAMBLING ADDICTION . 
And now they will be able to bet on sports 
 
If you might like to do an inter view on what this will do  as far as gambling addiction   call me   Arnie Wexler   at 954  5015270
 
 
  Lets look at the history of sports betting In 1992, Senator Bill Bradley sponsored a bill that allowed sports betting to be grand fathered for the 3 or 4 states that had sports betting or previously had sports betting. They all had an 18 month window to add sports betting   BUT NO STATE ADDED SPORTS BETTING THEN.
 
   Years ago, I was on a TV show with Howard Cossell (ABC Sports Beat). The topic was: Does the media encourage the public to gamble? David Stern, NBA commissioner said: "We don't want the week's grocery money to be bet on the outcome of a particular sporting event"
On Dec. 11, 2009, A change  commissioner David Stern told SI.com (the website for Sports Illustrated) that legalized gambling on the NBA "May be a huge opportunity"
 
What a bunch of  Hippocrates
JUST GIVE THEM A PIECE OF THE ACTION  !!!!
 

 

  NBA commissioner Adam Silver said.==="If you have a gentleman's bet or a small wager on any kind of sports contest, it makes you that much more engaged in it," Silver said. "That's where we're going to see it pay dividends."

 

We are also hearing that if we legalize sports betting we will stop the illegal sports betting in the state.We know thats never been the case.  As we all  know  that if you add a new form of gambling more people try it and some of those people will become addicted. The proof to that test is that we heard that when lottery came into effect we were going to stop the illegal numbers games. In fact that never happened. One of the reasons are that you can still get credit from a "runner" when you play an illegal number, and today some stores that sell lottery tickets, still allow known players to run up a tab and pay when they can.  In fact, when I was the executive director of the Council on Compulsive Gambling of NJ (1986-1994) we did a survey that Gallup conducted for us.Two of the questions on the survey were: Have you ever played illegal numbers? 31% of the respondents said "yes". Second question was: Do you play legal lottery in the state of NJ. 81% said "yes".

 

N.F.L. owners Jerry Jones and Robert K. Kraft, Have $ invested in  internet gambling with  DraftKings and FanDuel  

Why do you think the   N F L  gives out an injury list every week ?

    I wonder how many people would be watching the  N F L games if there were no gambling ?
