This makes me nauseous. NFL teams can now officially engage with bookies?

He must have been-he gambled $500 and bought the franchise.
So it has come full circle as old man Mara was a bookie

Are there really so many people buying that Hess toy truck that they can dominate the Giants ads? Or are the Giants ads just that cheap? Always wonder about that on game day.
This is no different from what happens in European soccer

Each team will have its own betting deal and platform.

at all. If anything I am very pro legalized gambling. But is astonishing how fast this has progressed and become accepted. We aren't that far removed from lines and odds being a cuss word on television.... It's amazing what massive amounts of money can accomplish.

I am for it as long as players and officials are honest with no point shaving or fixed games. Adding gambling will feed the fire of fans claiming that refs are not calling the games fair.
So when sports betting becomes legal

on the federal level, what is going to be the NFL's excuse to attempt to collect x% of revenues from gambling?!
Here is our great commish a few years ago on gambling

"I think we still strongly oppose [among ownership] legalized sports gambling," Goodell told reporters at a news conference wrapping up the owners meetings in Phoenix. "The integrity of our game is No. 1. We will not compromise on that."

I'm not in the tri-state area, so while I'm familar with Hess, I never even knew what the "toy truck" part referred to. Just looked it up, and it's literally a toy truck. So I totally agree with your post.
