The NFL joined other sports leagues earlier this month in protesting sports gambling in the state of Delaware. The NFL in particular alerted the Delaware Supreme Court that skills plays “an impermissible” role in the art of sports gambling and therefore should not be legal.
(It’ll be just as classy as this; promise!)
However, choosing your parents’ anniversary date as your Pick 4 numbers doesn’t count as skill in the NFL’s eyes, which is why they’re encouraging your favorite team to belly up to the state lottery trough and partner up for special games based around NFL teams. Why not? Guessing if Brett Favre will return has the same amount of skill as scratching a $5 vending ticket.
