NFL commissioner tries to reconcile the league’s embrace of sports betting

Home » NFL commissioner tries to reconcile the league’s embrace of sports betting

The NFL hated gambling until it loved it. And the NFL is still trying to reconcile its prior position on gambling with its current effort to grab every last dollar. The issue came up on Friday, when Commissioner Roger Goodell appeared with Pat McAfee and crew.

At one point, Darius Butler asked Goodell “how much louder” it’s gotten for 345 Park Avenue with sports betting being legalized and people complaining about officiating and games being scripted. (An excellent question.)

“I haven’t felt that at all,” Goodell said.

If Goodell hasn’t felt it, he has kept his fingers buried deep in his pockets.
