Thumbs down

Let me see. The University invested in an operation that is perfectly legal and does not in any way get involved with sports betting. Oh yeah, it doesn't allow minors to bet on anything.

Yeah, that's real hypocrisy. Are you sure this reporter doesn't work for Fox News?

NCAA Hypocrisy? Or Sporting News Hyperbole?

You decide...

More likely works for the New York Times.

Could you please expound on this Mark. Knowing you are a very objective referee, I assume you are the same in other aspects of life. What Fox "News Reporters" are biased. (Hopefully we all know the difference between a News
Reporter and an Opinion Minion) O'Reilly of Fox and Oberman of MSNBC would fall in the latter. Shepard Smith , Dan Rather, Peter Jennings , Tom Brokaw , and Katie Couric would be considered "News Reporters" . Only one of them appears (appeared) to be unbiased.

Being a long time lurker, I apologize to one and all for making this my first post. Hopefully the whole thread gets erased.

I live like 40 minutes from this casino. It was big news around here...not once did I think of anything hypocritic.

The guy is making a huge deal out of nothing. Sky City Casino sponsors the New Mexico Bowl over here...nothing said. These casinos give a LOT of money to these schools out here.

How he tied this into schools with native american names is beyond me...
