New Carolina Panthers Owner Thinks Legalized Gambling Will Make NFL Ratings Go Down?

The Carolina Panthers new owner, David Tepper, is dead set against gambling, claiming that ratings will go down.  Tell that to the Premier League and other Soccer organizations in Europe.  Simply unproven but certainly the old line of thought.

BarStool Sports intern, Jack Mac, writes:

This is the furthest thing from the truth. There is are a lot of factors that have led to the NFL owning a day of the week from September through the first weekend of February, but one of the biggest is gambling/fantasy. You think 10.6 million people are tuning into a color rush Thursday Night Football game between 4-9 Broncos against the 3-10 Colts if there isn’t money on the line? Negative.

Since the Supreme Court allowed for gambling to be legal on a state by state basis, the NFL continues to galivant with virtue signals about “protecting the integrity of the game.”

Neither North or South Carolina plan to begin offering sports betting any time soon.  Both states have taken on a mostly anti-gambling stance over the years, with South Carolina not even home to any casinos.
