I feel like that's probably against the rules.

Richard Sherman ‏@RSherman_25

Anquan is childing these corners. I see ya Flacco playing a hell of a game. This has been a pretty good day. Winning money and relaxing

Zach House ‏@_A_TaLL_GUY_

@RSherman_25 how much you put on the ravens

Richard Sherman ‏@RSherman_25

@_A_TaLL_GUY_ a lot

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

I really hope he was kidding about doing that, especially since he appealed the UA finding. Not good Sherm, not good at all.

You may not know how to read twitter.

Somebody asked him how much $ he had on Baltimore and he replied a lot.

So :roll: to you too. :th2thumbs:

As already mentioned, there is a rule. The players rules of conduct doesn't allow betting on ANY NFL game by players, period.

If there's a rule can someone link to it, otherwise we're just yelling at each other for no reason.

You can't PM him unless he follows you, but I sent him a tweet, which I'll delete once I see he's deleted his others. Then do what he said with this thread.

NFL players ARE allowed to play fantasy football for money. So i'm not sure why they wouldnt be allowed to bet on games they're not involved in.

If he broke a rule he broke a rule and he should face the penalty IMO.

This a Dockett move if true. Come on Sherm, you went to Stanford for &@#%'s sake.

I can't find anything on whether or not this is within the rules. I can't imagine it is.

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...

Could it be this:

Conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity and reputation of the NFL, NFL clubs, or NFL players.

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.

Dude, you guys don't seriously think Sherman is this dumb do you?

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.

C'mon guys.

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.

Stanford coach Bill Walsh once lobbied for an investigation into the U-Dub football program. Whether he knows it or not, Sherm is now lobbying for an investigation into Stanford's football program.

He was probably playing my favorite slot machine in Vegas, Wicked Winnings 2 which has "Ravens" in it.

I've made a lot of money off the Ravens too. :th2thumbs:

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.

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.

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

I'm sure it's been said somewhere else, but I find it funny that if the NFL has a policy against players gambling that they have ads for casinos in the stadiums...

All he has to say is that he was just making comments to troll Patriots fans, which might actually be the case.
