    The idiot's excuse was that since gambling is now legal, he thought it was OK to place bets, oblivious to the fact that the NFL still prohibits it. Fact that he actually put down "professional football player" actually supports that ignorance.

    Just to name a few that come to mind.
    I was only talking about NFL players as thread title only said NFL and originally said Shaw was first player caught before the "since legal" clarification was added.

    I believe it said Caesars. Crazy that they reported him but not some of the nfl owners that have wagered on football in the casinos over the years.

    Kid’s career is over though.

    They said it was at a Caesars sportsbook.

    Caesars owns the following.

    Planet Hollywood
    Paris
    Caesars
    Flamingo
    Harrahs
    Cromwell
    Linq....

    I didnít know if they meant Caesarís Palace or another property.

    That makes more sense. The funny thing is he bet against his own team and lost. That’s hard to do with the Cardinals.
