One of many primary arguments in opposition to the legalization of sports activities playing has been the concept that it will likely be a menace to the integrity of the sport and result in potential sport fixing scandals. The counter to that argument is that it’s very straightforward to make offshore bets presently and having a well-regulated authorized system will truly be higher in a position to monitor motion and suppress attainable fixing.
Nevertheless, it does stay one thing that the sports activities leagues and a few followers have issues over, and in a latest interview, Metta World Peace revealed private expertise he had in school being approached to repair a sport has him very a lot in opposition to its widespread legalization.
Metta spoke with Yahoo Sports activities in regards to the Supreme Court docket’s determination and instructed a narrative a couple of time he was approached by some guys whereas enjoying at St. John’s about fixing a sport for $35,000. World Peace says he turned down the supply, however says his concern is that these poor school youngsters will grow to be targets for these attempting to repair video games.
That’s an comprehensible worry to have, however once more, if it occurred again when Metta (then Ron Artest) was in school, then fixing is one thing that can all the time need to be fastidiously watched for whether or not betting is authorized or not. That stated, it’s additionally an excellent argument for why the NCAA ought to higher compensate their gamers, as a result of a child creating wealth with the prospect of dropping that in the event that they’re caught can be far much less more likely to take a lump sum of money than somebody combating cash scraping by.
In any case, the NCAA and different leagues will undoubtedly look to the assorted states and even Congress to put in robust regulatory packages and commissions to make sure betting is finished on the up and as much as keep away from these sorts of conditions.
