NFL to reinforce its gambling policy to players


This season had the NFL giving an uncommon number of suspensions for violating the gambling policy, so they want to make sure it doesn’t become a bigger problem.

Most of the players that have been suspended admitted they weren’t aware of the gambling policy. It not only states that they can’t gamble on NFL games, but they also mustn’t gamble on any other game from an NFL-facility. The league decided to summarize the rule with six points.

“1) Don’t bet on the NFL, 2) Don’t gamble at your team facility, while traveling for a road game, or staying at a team hotel, 3) Don’t have someone bet for you, 4) Don’t share team “inside information,” 5) Don’t enter a sportsbook during the NFL playing season, 6) Don’t play daily fantasy football”, were the points mentioned by the league according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
