The RPs Debate Gambling: Jason Grill Responds

Jason Grill‘s First Response

[The RP’s Provocation, Artur Davis’s Rebuttal #1; Ron Granieri’s Rebuttal #2; Natasha Dow Schüll’s Analysis; Spectrum Gaming Group’s Analysis; Jason Grill’s Rebuttal #3; The RP’s First Defense]

Sports gambling & betting is widespread and common place in our country and it’s being done illegally every minute.

It’s immoral not to legalize it and give states the option to reap the economic benefits of it for all of its citizens and visitors.

On Jonathan’s college argument:

The FBI estimates that more than $2.5 billion is illegally wagered annually on the NCAA basketball tournament each year. However, Nevada sportsbook operators estimate close to $90 million or less than 4 percent of illegal betting on March Madness is wagered legally on the tournament in their state. 

Sports gambling will continue to have little or most likely no impact on professional or college sports if PASPA is repealed and states are given the right to make the best decisions for their own well-being.

We will have to agree to disagree Jonathan.
