Wow--NC House just amended the sports betting bill (over objection of bill sponsor Rep. @JasonSaine97th) to keep gambling banned on college sports #ncpol #ncga

Rep. @AutryJohn proposed it, referencing the Dixie Classic and the NCSU point-shaving scandal that cost Jimmy V his job

One legislator said he believes Jesus would vote against the two sports wagering bills, so he'll do the same.

SB 688 currently being discussed.

1-But critics say the additional revenues that state sanction of sports betting would create pales in comparison to the negative effects upon family and society that the increase in the number of gambling addicts will cause.

2-"These gambling bills conflict with my values," said Rep. Abe Jones, a Wake County Democrat, former judge and committee member. "I'm not going to use my vote from this place to support gambling. I think it's wrong."

1- not true because of the amount of lottery tickets and scratch-offs i see littered in parking lots in the low income area i mainly work in

2- AKA i didnt get a big enough chunk cut out for my pocket and friends...

There were very loose allegations, but never any evidence. Players sold their shoes and the Board of Governors wanted him gone.

The point shaving problem was back in the 1950's. A lot of schools were caught up in it. I remember Billy Packer talking about his case when he was a prominent hoops guy. He was accused of being a shaver but it was a mistaken identity case and he was ultimately cleared. I believe we had a couple of guys who were implicated along with several others from other schools including the cheats.

Yes, it was... but that John Simonds basketball manager ****er put some allegations out about Shackelford and Weems supposedly shaving points. Totally baseless, but once it gets said it continues to get repeated... and here were are over 30 years later reading the same old lies...

This time in the General Assembly.

I don't remember who our assumed point shavers were. I know Doug Moe, UNC, was implicated…

Another in-person sportsbook is set to open in North Carolina this fall, not far from Charlotte. Legislation to legalize online sports gambling in the state is stalled. https://t.co/e7wPpVpPd3 #ncpol

In its first six months of mobile sports betting, New York has generated $302 million in revenue from taxes, more than any other state including New Jersey, which went mobile in the summer of 2018 ($237 million in revenue collected).

Massachusetts' new sports betting bill will allow wagering on college sports, except for in-state schools, similar to New Jersey.

The bill includes a 20% mobile tax rate, 15% retail tax rate, no credit cards and no advertising ban.

Just got word: Catawba Two Kings Casino opened its on-site sportsbook today. Its the third sportsbook in North Carolina, which did not pass a bill to legalize online sports gambling earlier this year.

Lol, It's like a 10 wide trailer right now. They aren't going to build the actual casino until the bill passes.
