  • The Supreme Court overturns federal ban on sports betting

    This might make Tunica and Biloxi more fun on fall weekends!

    The Supreme Court struck down a federal law that prohibits sports gambling Monday in a landmark decision that gives states the go-ahead to legalize betting on sports.

    The court ruled 6-3 to strike down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PAPSA), a 1992 law that barred state-authorized sports gambling with some exceptions. It made Nevada the only state where a person could wager on the results of a single game.

    States that want to offer legal sports betting may now do so, and New Jersey plans to be first. Delaware, Mississippi, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia are among the states expected to quickly get into the legal bookmaking game.

    The court ruled in favor of New Jersey and against the NCAA, NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball, capping a nearly six-year legal battle and overturning a federal statute that the sports leagues had adamantly stood by for more than 20 years.

          Danny Sheridan claims he's been approached by a couple high profile casinos/companies about "running" what he was basically calling the sports gambling for the state of Alabama. Of course, Alabama won't approve it. I also haven't put an ounce of faith in anything Sheridan has said since he claimed to know that identity of the Auburn/Cecil Newton "bagman."

                If they're smart, they won't make the outbound lanes too attractive.

                  They're friggin geniuses. The outside lanes are rough as hell. Unfortunately, their inbound lanes are too.

                    I think every state that does not opt out will allow gambling. Alabama will have to actively outlaw gaming, which could be a little more difficult.

                      I just assumed those laws were already on the book at the state level.
