The NFL introduced partnerships with FOX Wager, BetMGM, PointsBet and WynnBet on Monday — and one Corridor of Fame head coach isn’t thrilled with the league supporting sports activities playing.
Tony Dungy, a Tremendous Bowl champion with the Indianapolis Colts, responded to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter’s tweet in regards to the NFL agreeing to offers with sports activities betting firms to turn into Permitted Sportsbook Operators for the 2021 season.
“I actually don’t like seeing this, Adam. Once I got here into the league the NFL had a stance in opposition to playing,” Dungy wrote. “Now it looks as if we’ve accepted it. I understand it’s authorized now however we’ve all seen the harm playing can do to lives. I don’t suppose we must be selling it.”
Regardless that Dungy doesn’t agree with the league’s stance on sports activities playing, the NFL has made it clear that will probably be part of its future. Sports activities betting is now authorized in over two dozen states and it’s anticipated to develop much more within the coming years.
