    So happy for Jeff Gural. He came in to take over The Meadowlands after the State gave up. But he did it for the Horsemen
    he never gave up. Now hopefully he cashes in !

    If they keep the juice down, I'll be there.

    I'm sick of bs bookies and the negative aura dealing offshore.

    The novelty will last as long as your winners do. After you go to the corner book and are winning it will be fun, afterwards you may try to wager on different events etc. Once you begin the losing cycle you in fact will feel the novelty wear out and you will then be not as excited to wager.

    Maybe not NC either...According to this Kook...





    When the phone rings at 2 a.m. it’s a pretty safe bet there isn’t good news, as Bill Friday found out that December in 1960. The agent on the other end said, “Dr. Friday, I need to see you right away.” No, it couldn’t wait until the next morning. UNC President Bill Friday put on a pot of coffee and awaited the lawman’s late night visit.
    The Dixie Classic basketball tournament was being played in Raleigh’s Reynolds Coliseum that week. Started by legendary NC State basketball coach Everett Case, the event was sold out. Long after the game was over, as freshly showered players were leaving, a shady character sidled up to an NC State star. The Wolfpack player had been given money to throw the game so the other team would win, but he didn’t do it and the mobster pulled a gun and threatened to kill him. Fortunately, nothing serious happened.
    The annual Dixie Classic had developed a following so large that it had become a major betting event in Las Vegas, with large sums wagered on game outcomes. Organized crime was involved. Friday was alarmed to learn what was happening and immediately called a halt to the popular event. Fans were outraged.
    I couldn’t help but remember Friday’s recounting this story as we learned the Supreme Court had ruled that states could decide whether to allow betting on sports within their borders. It was comforting to hear Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger say our state would take its time making that call.


    There are many questions raised from this ruling. What if the state of Florida, home to ACC members Florida State and Miami, decides to allow betting, but North Carolina, with Duke, Wake Forest, UNC and NC State doesn’t? Would it be illegal to bet on games involving teams from our state? And would it be illegal for North Carolinians to place their bets using Florida bookies? Will our state quite literally be forced to approve, like we faced regarding the lottery, if our neighbors approve and we don’t? What problems would result if one state approves sports betting only on pro sports, while others approve for pro and college events? We think our highest court launched an air ball.
    Many states already hear the ka-ching of tax income from the betting. Some leagues are also salivating over a share, since shoe deals, TV rights, game proceeds and big donations obviously aren’t enough. The Rice Commission just recently affirmed the 1989 predictions Friday and Father Ted Hesburgh made with The Knight Commission. College basketball is already corrupt enough, what with “one-and-done” revolving doors, sports agents funneling money to players and their families, colleges holding fake classes and the abuse of so-called amateur athletes. We want to extend this to every sport?


    If the Dixie Classic taught us anything it was that crime always follows the easy money. It’s a pretty safe bet that North Carolina might as well hang out welcome signs to organized crime syndicates if we approve sports betting. I’m not being a prude, just a realist.
    The wisdom of the ages is true: Just because we can doesn’t mean we should authorize betting on sports events in our state. Yogi Berra would say this is déjà vu all over again.

    I chose "within the first week" on the poll but it really depends on whether it is a good game to bet on or not. hahaha

    Delaware was ready to go 5 years ago. They spend a lot of money on the odds board and it's only used for parlays. They should be ready by Labor Day. I have a couple friends that should know where they are on this.

    I doubt we’ll see better odds locally than offshore, so it might be a while.

    It's probably cause the turdheads are thinking if you win $5000 plus the $5000 of YOUR OWN MONEY equals $10,000.

    As far as I know.... Vegas does this too. Silly as hell, but anytime 10 dimes changes hands in cash.....

    I will run down to the casino, ask the writer for a rundown of the baseball games, bet a bunch of them and be at least a run down in each when they finish. And after one day of legalized sportsbetting, I will be a rundown, bitter, aging sports bettor.
