Alabama’s Nick Saban says satellite camps are ‘bad for college football’
September 9, 2016
If they have a prospect, they can have a camp. “I’m saying it’s bad for college football. Harbaugh can do whatever he wants to do if he thinks that’s what’s best. There needs to be somebody who looks out for what’s best for the game, not the SEC or the Big Ten or Jim Harbaugh. There needs to be a [college football] commissioner.”
“They should come [to Florida],” McElwain said. That’s bigger than all this. And who gets exposed on that? I go to a camp and talk to some guy I don’t know from Adam’s house cat, and he’s representing some kid cause he’s putting a camp on, and then I’m in trouble for talking to this guy.”
“Anybody can have a camp now. We have to worry about our players doing the right things with the limited time we have them, but we’re not going to do that because we have to be somewhere else to see someone else.”
“I’m not blaming Jim Harbaugh,” Saban said. However, in April the NCAA overturned the ban and ruled that satellite camps would be allowed.
Saban was asked whom he would want as commissioner.
“I don’t have a candidate,” Saban said. “It’s as good of [high school] football as there is in the country.”
. “That’s why we have a combine and all these other things.
Saban also questioned who keeps track of whether players paid for the camps and what, if any, compliance people are involved.
“Creating all these third parties. “I’m not into politics.”
Florida coach Jim McElwain has a unique perspective because 10 of the SEC’s other 13 schools participate in satellite camps in the Sunshine State.
“Until this satellite camp issue came up, you still had to go to the high school, go through the coach, and players came to your camp if they were interested in learning,” Saban said. It would be similar to pro days for juniors and seniors and would allow NFL scouts to better evaluate those players.
Saban blasted satellite camps because they incorporate third parties into recruiting and there aren’t any guidelines.
Saban has never been a fan of satellite camps, characterizing them as “ridiculous.”
“If you ask the NFL, ‘How can we maintain trust with our players when you’re giving us inaccurate information?’ their response is, ‘We don’t know enough about the guys to really give you the information, because all we can really go on is film evaluation,’” Saban said at the SEC annual meetings. The integrity of the game.
The SEC had banned its coaches from participating in satellite camps, and the NCAA followed with a satellite-camp ban.
Under current NCAA rules, once underclassmen declare for the NFL draft, they lose their remaining eligibility.
Saban has the opposite viewpoint on satellite camps as Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, who has embraced them like no other coach.
Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. There have been no specific guidelines relative to how we’re managing control of this stuff. Then you’re expected to go to that camp and they can use you to promote their camp because Ohio State is coming, Alabama is coming, whoever else is coming.
McElwain obviously would prefer that other schools didn’t recruit in Florida, but he knows that’s not realistic.
After initially saying he would not discuss satellite camps, Saban went off in a five-minute rant that would have made Howard Beale proud, comparing the satellite camps to “the wild, wild West.”
Saban and Arkansas’ Bret Bielema believe a combine for underclassmen could help solve the problem. What do they do with the money? And who makes sure the kid paid to go to camp?
“Why should we be promoting anybody else’s camp anywhere? All we’re doing is allowing all these other people that we spend all of our time at the NCAA saying you can’t recruit through a third-party person, and that’s exactly what you’re doing.
MIRAMAR BEACH, Florida — Alabama coach Nick Saban made one thing crystal clear Tuesday at the SEC spring meetings: He is not a fan of satellite camps.
“This is the wild, wild West at its best. We want accurate information when that’s all said and done in December.”
Among other topics Saban touched upon Tuesday, he said he would like to see underclassmen who leave school early have the option of returning after testing their prospects for the NFL draft, similar to what happens in college basketball.
“It’s bad for college football,” Saban said.
“All the people that say this is creating opportunities for kids, this is all about recruiting,” Saban said. “By doing what we’re doing now, we’re doing what we do in every other sport that we’re complaining about every day — AAU basketball and all this.
“The coaches, players and people who play it. Now who does that? Now because we have the Power 5, everyone is doing what they want. “That’s what it’s about.
“Someone sponsors the camp, they pay them the money. But what’s best for the game of college football. It’s happening outside the normal evaluation window, which means we’re taking time away from our players
Entries in long-hidden notebook show Pete Rose bet on baseball as player
September 9, 2016
Attorney’s Office internal memorandum from 2000 that requested the spiral notebook’s transfer said Bertolini’s closed file has “sufficient historical or other value to warrant its continued preservation by the United States Government.” The memorandum listed among its attachments a copy of the notebook, but a copy of the memorandum provided by the National Archives had no attachments and had a section redacted.. So Barney and Flynn, posing as a couple looking for a home, called a real estate agent and were given a guided tour of Bertolini’s house. The U.S. The documents go beyond the evidence presented in the 1989 Dowd report that led to Rose’s banishment and provide the first written record that Rose bet while he was still on the field.
“We knew that [Bertolini] recorded the bets, and that he bet himself, but we never had his records. The man’s name was Michael Bertolini, and the business he ran out of his home was called Hit King Marketing Inc.
“The rule says, if you bet, it doesn’t say for or against. Dowd’s investigation had established that Rose was hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt at the time he was banished from the game.
On Oct. And that is a very powerful problem,” Dowd said. Attorney’s Office seeking access to the book. [The mob] had a mortgage on Pete while he was a player and manager.”
“It was a mere ‘failure to render [services]‘ complaint,” said Barney, who is now retired. “[Ohio bookie] Ron Peters is a golf pro, so he’s got other occupations. All were denied on the grounds that the notebook had been introduced as a grand jury exhibit and contained information “concerning third parties who were not of investigative interest.”
“This does it. “I was taken aback.”
For 26 years, Pete Rose has kept to one story: He never bet on baseball while he was a player.
It was immediately clear that the many notations of “PETE” in the pages represented Pete Rose.
Barney sent an agent to drive by the address. He refused to give them to us,” Dowd said. They took any records I had whatsoever, and they took different personal belongings and memorabilia from my home.”
Dowd said he wished he’d had the Bertolini notebook in 1989, but he didn’t need it to justify Rose’s banishment. “This is the final piece of the puzzle on a New York betting operation with organized crime. But the boys in New York are about breaking arms and knees.
In April, Rose repeated his denial, this time on Michael Kay’s ESPN New York 98.7 FM radio show, that he bet on baseball while he was a player. 13, a few days after the undercover house tour and after obtaining a search warrant, they searched Bertolini’s home and found evidence that would lead to numerous convictions. Postal Inspection Service in October 1989, nearly two months after Rose was declared permanently ineligible by Major League Baseball. It’s impossible to count the exact number of times he bet on baseball games because not every day’s entries are legible.
Dowd, who reviewed the documents at Outside the Lines’ request, said his investigators had tried but failed to obtain Bertolini’s records, believing they would be the final piece in their case that Rose was betting with mob-connected bookmakers in New York. It’s another device by Pete to try to excuse what he did,” Dowd said. On Monday morning, MLB officials declined to comment about the notebook.
“I wish I had been able to use it [the book] all those years he was denying he bet on baseball,” said Flynn, the former postal inspector. “It reeked of fraud,” Barney said.
The timing for Rose, who played in 72 games in 1986, isn’t great. There was a for sale sign out front, the agent told him. I need to maintain that. District Court in Brooklyn six years later (he served 14 months for tax fraud and a concurrent assault sentence):
The documents are copies of pages from a notebook seized from the home of former Rose associate Michael Bertolini during a raid by the U.S.
“There were numbers and dates and — it was a book for sports betting,” Barney said. Dowd and his team had sworn testimony from bookie Ron Peters that Rose bet on the Reds from 1984 through 1986, but not written documentation. That came during his worst week of the four-month span, when he lost $25,500.
The documents obtained by Outside the Lines, which reflect betting records from March through July 1986, show no evidence that Rose, who was a player-manager in 1986, bet against his team. For 26 years, the notebook has remained under court-ordered seal and is currently stored in the National Archives’ New York office, where officials have declined requests to release it publicly.
To Dowd, one of the most compelling elements of the newly uncovered evidence is that it supports the charge that Rose was betting with mob-connected bookies through Bertolini. That meeting likely will come sometime after the All-Star break. That gave them probable cause to seek a search warrant.
o But on 21 of the days it’s clear he bet on baseball, he gambled on the Reds, including on games in which he played.
o Most bets, regardless of sport, were about $2,000. We tried to get them. It looked to them as if Bertolini had been signing memorabilia with the forged names of some of the most famous baseball players in history: Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Duke Snider, Mike Schmidt and Pete Rose. Dowd recently met with MLB CIO and executive vice president of administration John McHale Jr., who is leading Manfred’s review of Rose’s reinstatement request, to walk McHale through his investigation. One Executive Tools Spiral Notebook.” Two small boxes of other items confiscated in the postal raid on Bertolini’s house went too, including autographed baseballs and baseball cards.
Although the 1989 raid on Bertolini’s house received immediate news coverage, nothing about a betting book became public for five years. He placed his financial interest ahead of the Reds, period.”
“The implications for baseball are terrible. Both agents, former supervisor Craig Barney and former inspector Mary Flynn, said the records were indeed copies of the notebook they seized.
Flynn, who said her first reaction was “Holy mackerel,” said they asked Bertolini about the notebook.
But Rose’s supporters have based part of their case for his reinstatement on his claim that he never bet while he was a player or against his team, saying that sins he committed as a manager shouldn’t diminish what he did as a player.
Last year, Outside the Lines again applied unsuccessfully for access to the notebook but learned it had been transferred to the National Archives under a civil action titled “United States v. This closes the door,” said John Dowd, the former federal prosecutor who led MLB’s investigation.
Bats, balls, books and papers were scattered all over. “We didn’t know anything about Bertolini or his connection [to Rose].”
Outside the Lines tracked down two of the postal inspectors who conducted the raid on Bertolini’s home in 1989 and asked them to review the documents. Therefore at this point, it’s not appropriate to comment on any specifics.” Bertolini’s lawyer, Nicholas De Feis, said his client is “not interested in speaking to anyone about these issues.”
“Bertolini nails down the connection to organized crime on Long Island and New York. They provide a vivid snapshot of how extensive Rose’s betting life was in 1986:
“He wasn’t forthcoming with much information,” she said, “but he did acknowledge to me it was records of bets he made for Pete Rose.”
But new documents obtained by Outside the Lines indicate Rose bet extensively on baseball — and on the Cincinnati Reds – as he racked up the last hits of a record-smashing career in 1986. The largest single bet was $5,500 on the Boston Celtics, a bet he lost.
If the accusation was true, it would constitute mail fraud, but the agents had no probable cause to search Bertolini’s house.
“I got a call at the place where I was working at the time from my brother, and he says, ‘You should come home.’ He said, ‘There’s a bunch of government people here, and they’re here for you.’ At the time, I think it was Mary Flynn of the postal inspector’s office who got on the phone and said, ‘We’re here,’ and she told me why and so forth. But one item stood out: In a box of papers in the basement, Barney said, was a spiral notebook filled with handwritten entries.
o In the time covered in the notebook, from March through July, Rose bet on at least one MLB team on 30 different days. “It was such a mess. Dowd also had testimony and a recorded phone conversation between Bertolini and another Rose associate, Paul Janszen, that established that Bertolini had placed bets for Rose. But Dowd never had the kind of documents that could cement that part of his case, especially in the eyes of fans who wanted to see Rose returned to Major League Baseball.
When the case began, it didn’t look particularly enticing, Barney said. “He’s a liar.”
The two inspectors spotted an item that a complainant said had not been returned. In March of this year, he applied to Manfred for reinstatement. “But when he bet, he was gone. “Never bet as a player: That’s a fact,” he said.
In April, Outside the Lines examined the Bertolini memorabilia kept in the National Archives’ New York office, but the betting book — held apart from everything else — was off-limits. And, of course, [Rose] betting while he was a player.”
Freelance researcher Liam Quinn contributed to this report. Their authenticity has been verified by two people who took part in the raid, which was part of a mail fraud investigation and unrelated to gambling. To be sure, I’m eager to sit down with [MLB commissioner Rob] Manfred to address my entire history — the good and the bad — and my long personal journey since baseball. There was stuff everywhere,” Barney said.
Bertolini offered his take on the raid during his sentencing hearing in U.S. The postal inspector’s office in Brooklyn, New York, had received a complaint that a man in Staten Island had failed to return goods to paying customers that he was supposed to have autographed. After Bertolini pleaded guilty and received a federal prison sentence, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, ESPN and other news organizations filed freedom of information requests with the U.S. Under MLB Rule 21, “Any player, umpire, or club or league official or employee, who shall bet any sum whatsoever upon any baseball game in connection with which the bettor has a duty to perform shall be declared permanently ineligible.”
o Rose bet heavily on college and professional basketball, losing $15,400 on one day in March.
Yes, he admitted in 2004, after almost 15 years of denials, he had placed bets on baseball, but he insisted it was only as a manager.
Rose, through his lawyer, Raymond Genco, issued a statement: “Since we submitted the application earlier this year, we committed to MLB that we would not comment on specific matters relating to reinstatement

All Bets Are Off On ‘Survivor’
September 6, 2016
Most offshore sportsbooks accept such alternative bets, said BoDog’s Bradley.
An online sportsbook said it has dropped betting on CBS’ “Survivor” after allegedly finding that network employees were wagering – and winning – on the hit reality show.
The Costa Rica-based BoDog.com found at least two CBS employees betting on the show’s outcome, said BoDog spokesman Lance Bradley. “Some have been right, many have been wrong.”
They wagered correctly on who would be the final two contestants in both the fourth and fifth editions of “Survivor,” Bradley said. All Rights Reserved. The suspicion is they had insider knowledge, he said.
The show narrows the field to two finalists in filmed competitions. Bradley said that bets taken from those alleged to be with CBS skewed the odds significantly on “Survivor” contestants.
He wasn’t aware of any other possible legal sanctions.
Odds will be offered on the seventh “Survivor” but all bettors will be carefully monitored, BoDog President Rob Gillespie said in a statement.
The players’ current bets on “Survivor: Amazon” have been canceled and their money refunded, Bradley said. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
. The biggest payoff, $8,000, came on a $1,000 bet placed on the fifth “Survivor” at 8-to-1 odds.
For the current “Survivor,” the bets in question affected the odds for contestants Jenna Morasca of Pittsburgh, Pa., and Matthew Von Ertfelda of Washington, D.C.
Betting on events other than sports or racing is banned in Las Vegas sportsbooks, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Gaming Control Board said Thursday. One person was said by BoDog to work in a “production role” for CBS.
By Lynn Elber
“Throughout the history of ‘Survivor,’ many have believed they knew the outcome of the show,” Ender said. The players in question opened accounts with BoDog before “Survivor: Marquesas,” the fourth show, and bet only on the show and no other events.
Callers to the Bodog.com offices were told that wagers were no longer being accepted on “Survivor.”
“Only ‘The X-Files’ has more conspiracy theories than ‘Survivor,’” CBS spokesman Chris Ender said. The winner is unknown until he or she is chosen in a vote by other contestants during a live broadcast.
© 2003 The Associated Press. Asked if BoDog might consider legal action, he replied: “It’s not something we’d want to pursue, as a matter of precedent.”
“We’re pretty sure this is the case,” Bradley said. BoDog requires that bettors must not have knowledge of an event’s outcome. He declined further comment on the allegations, or on any action CBS might take.
At least two players have been identified as CBS employees and other names may be connected to the network or may be aliases, Bradley said

“I’m not pro sports gambling. I’m just a realist.”
September 5, 2016
The other leagues have — at least publicly — not wavered from their anti-legalization stance after the op-ed. It studied and researched and planned behind closed doors before it made its move. The best way for the league to monitor our integrity is for that betting action to move toward legal betting organizations, where it can be tracked. Regardless of public positioning, all the leagues are actively planning for a new gambling reality. Chris Christie, who in 2012 began pushing to legalize sports betting in his state by challenging the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992, the federal ban on state-sponsored sports betting. “We’re still in the monitoring stage,” he says. He’s relaxed, though not unguarded. was “inevitable” because cash-strapped states need the revenue.
The NBA’s pivot point on legalized gambling appeared in a Nov. “My greatest concern,” he says, “is that there will be, in essence, a hodgepodge of regulations controlling sports betting that will vary from state to state, jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and will make it increasingly difficult to monitor betting on our very own sport.”
The Donaghy revelation became the ugliest gambling scandal to hit an American professional sport since at least Pete Rose’s banishment from baseball in 1989 and perhaps since the Black Sox threw the 1919 World Series. But that’s not to say he and the NBA are the only ones re-examining their approach. “The league and many of our teams are actively engaged in the so-called daily fantasy business,” Silver says. In England, bets can be placed on a smartphone, at a stadium kiosk or even using a TV remote control. “We did everything possible to encourage it while publicly condemning gambling. That’s the pragmatic approach.”
But multiple sources with direct knowledge of meetings between the leagues believe the NHL is much more open to legalization than Bettman’s comments indicate. And publicly, it did. “I felt the need to explain why I had made other statements acknowledging that I thought sports betting should be legalized,” Silver says. In September 2014, citing a loophole in the Department of Justice’s language about violations to PASPA, Christie issued a directive to legalize. Billions of dollars are being illegally wagered on sports, almost all online. “Yet at the same time, we were opposing the New Jersey legislation in multiple court actions. He spent time overseas growing the NBA’s brand, giving him a vantage point to see how legalized gambling worked in other countries. You don’t have to be a cynic to think that the leagues and their owners want a piece of that very big betting pie.
Stern began thinking along the same lines. Or on Silver, who gained extensive knowledge of foreign revenue models during his time overseas. commissioner to publicly support legalized sports gambling. (One study by Nevada gaming company Club Cal Neva projected a possible windfall of $50 million for Atlantic City casinos if betting was legalized.) But the leagues — the NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB — and the NCAA sued, claiming that the state was in violation of PASPA and that the perception of the integrity of the games would be damaged if New Jersey began taking legal bets.
Privately, though, the league was watching — closely — as the Vegas market and legal daily fantasy sites were growing exponentially. The NBA deal also included an equity stake in the company. “I recognize that it can be very damaging to a person or a person’s family, just like other substances of potential abuse taken to extremes. She was represented by Ifrah, while David Deitch, a former Justice Department attorney, represented the government. Actually establishing a legal framework is another. 16 Gambling Issue. “We have always known betting, fantasy leagues and daily [fantasy] sports have driven interest and viewership,” wrote the Mavericks’ owner in a recent email exchange with The Magazine. So were politicians. Just 88 days into his tenure as NBA commissioner, on April 29, 2014, Silver banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling in a four-minute proclamation on national TV, his willingness to stand alone in full view.
Studying models is one thing. In September 2012, the NFL convened a forum in collaboration with other pro leagues, the International Olympic Committee and the NCAA to discuss best practices, law enforcement resources and the gambling industry. The move made sense to many in New Jersey, where ailing gaming and racing industries were causing financial strain.
So it is, then, that for now, at least, Silver seems comfortable standing alone as the only acting U.S. “Even if they’re not betting, they’re highly aware of the betting line and over/unders.”
And so after taking over for Stern last February, Silver wasted little time implementing his approach. “As we began to stage exhibition games in Europe and China and jurisdictions where sports betting was legal, it caused me to focus more on this than I had historically,” Silver says. Subscribe today!
Silver says he hasn’t set a timetable for the day when we can legally bet on a Cavaliers-Heat game. “And while I wouldn’t categorize that as sports betting, on the continuum of no betting at all and legalized betting, it’s certainly on the spectrum.”
SPORTS IS AN ongoing contest between two forces: tradition and innovation. The case is headed to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals this spring.
Cuban has suggested that one way of monetizing that interest is to charge sportsbooks and casinos licensing fees to use the league’s data. Attorney Harris Fischman examined major U.S. The “defendant,” “Ginger McKenna,” was accused of facilitating illegal sports bets. Deitch prevailed.
Nine months later, on a cold January afternoon on the 19th floor of league headquarters in Midtown Manhattan, with Hot Chocolate’s “You Sexy Thing” playing, Silver is loose and joking, all the while being prepped for his cover shoot. team owners.
Leave it to Mark Cuban to be frank about that aspect of the NBA’s support for legalization. The illegal market across sports? Try 132 times that — an estimated $138.9 billion, according to the American Gaming Association. Once again, the leagues sued and won. In 516 words, he diagnosed the reality of sports betting in the U.S.: Federal and state laws are not stopping anyone from betting. Specifically, New Jersey Gov. In that dark moment, the NBA could very well have hunkered down and waited for the dawn. gaming laws, including PASPA and the Wire Act, which prohibits any betting activity that includes wire transmissions. And when it did, it was not subtle.
With the proliferation of casinos and state lotteries, the instant gratification of the Internet and the boom in daily fantasy sports, betting was becoming part of mainstream America. “Then we began getting approached by sports-betting companies outside of the United States, where it’s legal, to do business with them. As we became more of a global company, I began to think about what our policy should be here.”
THE NBA’S DARKEST hour can actually be marked by a single moment, concentrated down to the uttering of a sentence. “I can tell you that this is the most serious situation and worst situation that I have ever experienced either as a fan of the NBA, a lawyer for the NBA or a commissioner of the NBA.” That was the lament of then-commissioner David Stern during a July 24, 2007, news conference announcing that referee Tim Donaghy was under federal investigation for betting on games. Does it become a vehicle for betting, which may in effect change the atmosphere in the arenas?”
The bald 52-year-old man in glasses and a conservative dark suit doesn’t look like an agent of change — especially with the 1970s soul music playing in the background on the set at a recent photo shoot for The Mag. I needed a forum to make it clear.”
The opportunity for additional streams of capital from sports betting can’t be lost on U.S. “I am very sensitive to people thinking that I’m not understanding of the downsides,” he says. While the NBA is still fighting in the courts to keep New Jersey from setting up its own sports-betting operation, three other states (New York, Indiana and South Carolina) have introduced similar bills this year, and a Minnesota state representative, Phyllis Kahn, has told ESPN that she’ll be introducing a sports-betting proposal early in this legislative session.
Fans weren’t the only ones talking about it. “We have studied the New Zealand model and other models in other jurisdictions,” he says.
I have talked to the other commissioners about it. On the one side are those who tell you that’s the way it’s always been done, and on the other are those who urge you to change and adapt.
In the meantime, Silver is willing to take the lead on an issue that some liken to the legalization of marijuana — socially acceptable but mostly illegal. “But I view myself more as pro transparency. … A 2007 letter signed by all general counsels of the major sports leagues and the NCAA, including NBA vice president Rick Buchanan, stated, “The harms caused by government endorsement of sports betting far exceed the alleged benefits.”
The timing of the column, of course, was calculated. And someone who’s a realist in the business. In 2009, the then-commissioner told Sports Illustrated, when asked if legal sports betting would be in the NBA’s best interest, “It has been a matter of league policy to answer that question no. One week later, the NBA was due back in court as part of its ongoing fight to prevent New Jersey from making sports betting legal. There also have been other, more private confabs involving high-ranking advisers to the leagues. “As someone who attends an enormous number of games, I’m often hearing fans talking about it,” Silver says. It saw how all that interest, as well as action from illegal offshore betting sites, fueled NBA fandom, and it realized it needed to have a seat at the table — the better to monitor and monetize those burgeoning passions. Included in the forum, which wasn’t open to the public, were talks with law enforcement officials, gaming regulators, addiction specialists and even a former student-athlete caught up in sports gambling. The title of the exercise? “As Close as You Ever Want to Get to a Federally Prosecuted Sports Betting Trial.” In it, Assistant U.S. have assigned people in their organizations to study the issue intensively.”
PERHAPS THE BEST Silver can hope for from other commissioners is a new view of sports betting as a possible “frenemy.” It is tricky, after all, for the leagues to embrace something they’ve long denounced for its impact on the “integrity of the game.” It would also be naive to think that this is all about the sanctity of the results. But Adam Silver has proved otherwise. 13, 2014, editorial in The New York Times, penned by new commissioner Adam Silver: I believe that sports betting should be brought out of the underground and into the sunlight where it can be appropriately monitored and regulated. I will say that certainly all of them … In 2013, $1.05 billion was wagered legally on basketball, combining the professional and college levels. MLB declined to comment for this story, and the NFL refused to even reiterate its anti-legalization stance. In those meetings, sources with direct knowledge say, contingency plans were formed in preparation for the day sports betting is legal outside of Nevada.
Through it all, Silver has remained steadfast that legal sports gambling should be addressed first on the federal, not state, level. It could have continued to treat sports betting as the enemy that for as long as anyone could remember had threatened the very fabric of the game. That’s yet another reason I think it needs to be closely monitored.”
In September, Silver told an audience at a Bloomberg sports business conference that expanded legalized sports betting in the U.S.
The evolution of Silver as gambling realist in many ways began in 2006, after he took over the league’s international operations as deputy commissioner. “In light of these domestic and global trends,” he wrote, “the laws on sports betting should be changed. But I think that league policy was formulated at a time when gambling was far less widespread — even legally.”
His time overseas coincided with the Donaghy scandal and the revelation, as Silver puts it, “of how important it is to have a way of monitoring irregular activity in our games.” He adds, “None of the systems we had in place had captured any betting by Donaghy.”
In November 2011, New Jersey voters had overwhelmingly approved a referendum to legalize Las Vegas-style sports betting at racetracks and casinos across the state. All of them have assigned people to study the issue intensively.
” — NBA commissioner Adam Silver
This story appears in ESPN The Magazine’s Feb. But the timing of the op-ed allowed him to address another seeming hypocrisy: Just one day prior to its publication, the league announced a deal with a successful daily fantasy operator called FanDuel, which boasted some $621 million in entry fees last year alone. In March, two NBA attorneys attended a mock sports-betting trial put on by gaming attorney Jeff Ifrah at iGaming North America at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. “One of my concerns is that I will be portrayed as pro sports betting,” he says. District Judge Michael Shipp ruled in favor of the leagues. But you can bet all interested parties — the other leagues, the states, the bookmakers, the bettors — are following the developments as closely as they would a point spread.
When asked about the support he’s getting from other leagues, Silver says, “I have talked to the commissioners in the other leagues about it, and I leave it to them to make any public statements they want to make on it. In some areas of Australia, for example, sportsbooks pay fees to leagues based on the gross revenue made off the wagering of the games. Congress should adopt a federal framework that allows states to authorize betting on professional sports, subject to strict regulatory requirements and technological safeguards.”
A united front among all the leagues would certainly help Silver’s cause for a federal solution. I’m glad Adam is putting the hypocrisy behind us and putting it all up front.”
THEN CAME SILVER’S op-ed.
U.S. And the NHL and MLB are both currently partnered with daily fantasy sports operator DraftKings.. Gary Bettman, the longtime commissioner of the NHL, told CNN in November after Silver’s op-ed was published: “I think there needs to be some attention paid to what sports is going to represent to young people. And in New Zealand, sportsbook giant TAB paid more than $5 million last year in commissions to the leagues it takes wagers on. That’s when Silver says he began to realize the need for a response. But the state didn’t give up
