  • No. It is against the player code of conduct. Very Very Very bad.

  • Ok so the first tweet, from a legal perspective, says nothing about SPORTS betting, let alone the nfl. He could be on slots. So, no problem there. Yeah he talks about the ravens player but doesn't explicitly connect them.

    Second tweet the guy says what do you "put on" the ravens. Sherm says "a lot". The word money or bet is not used.

    Talk about a reach.

    Regardless, they'll have his name on the sportsbook if the NFL investigates.

  • Ok, after some searching I'm going to retract my previous statements. Evidently the page that I had found probably was false regarding the betting. Here is something from March of last year:

    http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/spo ... ct-243305/

    Nowhere is betting stated in it.

  • Misread one word so I edited before you replied. Anyway, of course it's a reach but when legal things are involved it has to be 100% clear cut. Did you already forget his PED appeal?

    I agree on his name being in the book. The question is do they need a courts permission to request that info...

  • Possibly, but that is pretty vague and encompassing. I could see that getting tossed in a real court if used for something like this. If it were a Pete Rose type of deal then yea, or if it was a gambling addiction possibly. Who knows though with their horrible wording.

    I would put money on it that his "a lot" of money on the ravens was laundered through one of his buddies that is with him with the bookie.

  • If this is a no no rules wise sure Sherman may not know so may not know not to say it. But don't forget Zach tweeted him back asking how much he put on em, there are two players in this, what are the odds on both players not being aware, esp a veteran like Zach? Not too high I'd say.

  • Not according to Pete. He admitted to gambling but place all the beta on the team prior to season starting knowing they would win more than lose. Don't think anything else has been proven

    I am surprised this is allowed. Searched around a bit and can't find anything against it BUT

    Refs can't gamble PERIOD in anything during season and has to report when gambling off-season with 24 hours

    Players were reprimanded / punished for being a part of investing into a future casino...

    I don't think they officially determined that but betting on any games is strictly prohibited and I'd an automatic ban. Either way that's MLB not NFL so enough of Pete Rose.

  • the first tweet just says he was winning money, which means he could be on the slots or at a table gettin' it poppin since he was texting I'll assume he was on the slots. The second tweet, okay you might have something, but was he making the bet amongst his friends? or was he making this bet with the bookies at the casino, that's the only question I have here.

  • Betting on games has always been against the rules.For years all gambling of any kind was prohibited.NFL even stopped NFL players from playing in a charity poker event.I think that rule has been changed though.
    With Goodall and his "protect the shield" policy he could try to ban Sherman on conduct violations.
    If the NFL proves a player gambled on NFL games I bet he is looking at a year ban.

    Sherm's smart enough to stay away from bookies. My bet is he said that to rile up Patriot fans. Non issue IMHO.

  • From the
    Legue Policies for Players (synopsis)
    http://www.nflevolution.com/wordpress/w ... 1-5081.pdf


    NFL Gambling Policy
    • NFL players and coaches cannot take bribes to throw or fix a game. Playing or
    coaching at less than the very best and being paid to do so is against the law and a
    major violation of NFL policy.
    • Any attempts to bribe a player or coach, or knowledge of attempted bribes, must be
    reported immediately.
    • League employees (players, coaches, and staff) are prohibited from betting on any
    NFL game.
    • Associating with gamblers or gambling activity is against NFL policy.
    • Endorsing or promoting gambling, even if the gambling is legal, is against NFL policy.
    This includes cruise or casino appearances
