NBA Stern slams New Jersey Governor Christie over sports betting

Stern slams New Jersey Governor Christie over sports betting

Kurt Helin





Professional sports leagues work at staying as far away from gambling as possible (unless itís fantasy leagues, but they pretend you donít put money into those). They donít want the reality or perception of sports gambling leading to shaved points or game fixing.

So, not shockingly, NBA Commissioner David Stern ó and the commissioners of the other major sports in the United States ó does not like the idea that New Jersey wants to add sports gambling in Atlantic City and other spots in the state.

The leagues have filed a lawsuit to block the state from adding the ability to bet on the Packers or Dodgers or Knicks when you visit Atlantic City. In a deposition in that case released Friday and reported by the Associated Press, David Stern went hard at New Jersey and state governor Chris Christie.
ďThe one thing Iím certain of is New Jersey has no idea what itís doing and doesnít care because all itís interested in is making a buck or two, and they donít care that itís at our potential loss,Ē Stern said when asked how the advent of sports betting in New Jersey would harm the NBA.

ďAnd wholly apart from the fact that a governor, whoís a former U.S. Attorney, has chosen to attack a federal law which causes me pause for completely different reasons since Iíve at times sworn to similar oaths about upholding the law of the United States,Ē Stern continued.
New Jersey is doing this for the same reason every state is scrambling to find revenue ó they are hurting a lot from the recession. They are cutting jobs, they are cutting services and they are looking for more money ó and tax on sports betting is easy revenue.

David Stern need to STFU, if he "was so concerned" about sports betting he wouold be filing lawsuits to get it banned in Vegas. and i really want to know what the NBA's loss is if NJ has sportsw betting, because that is a hill i do not see.
