|Last week’s Supreme Court decision opening the door for states to sanction sports betting has been met with much speculation about how it will impact all sports in the United States.
The NFL’s initial response was to ask Congress for “a core regulatory framework” that would govern legalized betting on sports. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell expanded on that in a statement on Monday that asks Congress to act and outlines four areas that the league believes need to be addressed in any legislation.
“As it was for my predecessors Radek Faksa Jersey , there is no greater priority for me as the Commissioner of the National Football League than protecting the integrity of our sport. 聽Our fans, our players and our coaches deserve to know that we are doing everything possible to ensure no improper influences affect how the game is played on the field.聽This week’s ruling by the Supreme Court has no effect on that unwavering commitment.
We have spent considerable time planning for the potential of broadly legalized sports gambling and 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. These efforts include supporting commonsense legislation that protects our players, coaches and fans and maintains public confidence in our games. We are asking Congress to enact uniform standards for states that choose to legalize sports betting that include Patrice Bergeron Jersey , at a minimum, four core principles:
There must be substantial consumer protections;Sports leagues can protect our content and intellectual property from those who attempt to steal or misuse it;Fans will have access to official, reliable league data; andLaw enforcement will have the resources, monitoring and enforcement tools necessary to protect our fans and penalize bad actors here at home and abroad.” It’s easy to understand why the NFL and other leagues would want to have one framework for gambling rather than as many as 50 different sets of rules in place. It’s also easy to understand why the league wants to find a way to take in money for their “intellectual property” and “reliable league data” in the form of integrity fees or some other avenue.
Whether Congress will act to give them what they want after a court ruling that placed gambling decisions squarely into the hands of states remains to be seen, however.
The alleged mistreatment of cheerleaders by NFL teams continues to generate contentions far more unusual than the notion that they didn’t receive fair pay for the time spent on the job.
Via the Houston Chronicle, Angelina Rosa has joined the pending lawsuits against the Texans Rick Nash Jersey , and she specifically claims that the director of the squad placed duct tape on Roas’s body because she was “skinny fat.”
“My skin was being torn because of the movements,” Rosa said at a Friday press conference. “I stand here today to try to make sure no other girl or woman has to endure this same humiliation.”
The Texans previously have called the lawsuits filed by former cheerleaders “frivolous” (that’s the favorite term of anyone who has been sued), and the team is trying to get the cases dismissed in lieu of arbitration. Which means that the Texans likely required the cheerleaders to sign paperwork, on a take-it-or-leave-it basis, to submit any legal claims to arbitration, a far more favorable forum than allowing a jury of neutral citizens to determine whether a team violated employee legal rights.
Through it all Josh Morrissey Jersey , the NFL continues to keep its head low and its mouth shut when it comes to alleged financial and other abuses of team cheerleaders. Somehow, the league has managed to avoid scrutiny, criticism, or accountability for the alleged and/or actual behavior of its teams when it comes to a group of employees who many teams seem to treat as second- or third-class citizens, presumably because the supply of willing participants far exceeds the demand — and because the cheerleaders have yet to unionize, like they probably should.
UPDATE 6/25/18 12:50 p.m. ET: A prior version of this article indicated that the Texans hope to compel arbitration before Commissioner Roger Goodell Womens Jaroslav Halak Jersey , a contention that came from the Chronicle article. According to the Texans, the cheerleaders signed a standard arbitration clause that calls for an outside company, not the league office, to handle the arbitration.
