Report- NHL Players Will Be Permitted To Be In Gambling Ads

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The NHLPA and NHL have reached an agreement under which players are permitted to participate in advertising related to sports wagering, Slap Shots has learned.

A memo sent to all players and agents on Friday outlines the agreement that comes with several guidelines, the most pertinent being that players are not permitted to be depicted “engaging in betting activities” and that the player’s endorsement, “does not promote betting on NHL games.”

I don’t love it, not at all, but if all sports leagues and individual club owners are cashing in, then there is no reason the players should not get a slice of the pie.

Endorsement:
an act of giving one’s public approval or support to someone or something.

Everything you know is wrong.
