NFL frowns on gambling – wink wink, nudge nudge

TAGs: 49ers, Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, NFL Football, Vikings

NFL-Frowns-GamblingThe NFL frowns, nay, practically scowls at those would sully their game by gambling on the outcome. So just imagine what the commish was thinking on Sunday night when NBC announcers Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth felt the need to publicly acknowledge that the last-second safety given up by Minnesota against San Francisco meant that the 49ers would cover the spread after all. Indeed, it almost sounds as if Michaels was suggesting his booth-buddy was one of those affected by the last-second reversal of fortune. Seriously, NFL bigwigs, when your own announcers feel a responsibility to publicly commiserate with all those Minnie backers who just lost their cab fare home from the sports bar, it’s time to rethink your stance against sportsbetting.
