The is a proposition in California to legalize sports betting. Voting will be in November of 2022.
I have not seen, read, or heard any commercials that are in favor if sports betting in California. I've seen an ample amount of TV commercials strongly against sports betting. Advocacy and Native American groups have been hammering the online sports betting companies. Claiming this would hurt California casinos and put more homeless people on the street.
Where is the outrage regarding DFS from these advocacy groups? I have dabbled a little with Yahoo DFS. There are some small dollar games and there are some big amount of high stakes games. Draft Kings and Fan Duel are like the Coke and Pepsi of DFS. I wonder on average how much money these companies make per year from California players. Again, where is the outrage from the advocacy and tribal groups regarding DFS? If the advocacy groups are against online sports betting, why don't they go after all of it.
Thankfully, I never been to a Gambler's Anonymous meeting. I would be willing to bet (no pun intended) that some of the participants have a huge gambling problem resulting with betting money on the DFS sites. I would like to see sports betting in CA, but I'm not convinced it will happen.

The wording of these initiatives is critical in the ballot process.

FanDuel and DraftKings know what they're doing.

The FanDuel/DraftKings bill likely to appear on the November ballot is titled, "California Solutions to Homelessness and Mental Health Act."

Clever, very clever.

Yep but I doubt it passes in California…. Have not seen 1 commercial for the passing of it!

You're on record expressing doubt, Murph.

An enterprising offshore sports book should offer a price on the pass/fail result of the sports betting propositions in California.

Should California voters pass a corporate-backed ballot prop in November, we are looking at a future in which our state’s sports betting industry would be completely dominated by out-of-state corporations… The worst part? Those same sports betting corporations would take 90% of the profits, without creating any real jobs in California or giving us anything in return. It’s a lose-lose situation for California.

worst 12 month span for pac 12, they had horrible showings in football, basketball and baseball. ive talked about the decline on black population but i think a decline of white population is also a factor, we are being invaded by asians and hispanics

The gambling proposition advertising for both sides will heat up when the ballots come out. It's still over 4 months till the election.

The tribe could cut a deal with one of those books also and just collect money, unless it’s some California law.

Millions in California to receive up to $1,050 in 'inflation relief' https://trib.al/2L9tb4M


NY post





fan duel / DK loves the idea


That's the max with kids. Really a joke considering CA has a 58 billion surplus.

Governor has spent tons to give illegals free medical care yet he won't rescind
a 58 cent state gas tax temporarily.
 
First post since 2008 or so when The Shrink and the General were around and helped me get paid. As a Calif native since 1951 except my USMC days in 1969--- Nevada will not let California legalize sportsbetting. I also know The Indian casinos also will not let it happen. Even though Boyd gaming is opening up a great casino in Elk Grove in November.
One key note please-- as far as this new gas rebate in Calif--- If you are a senior in Calif making 18 k in income per year - and did not pay a State Income Tax -- you will not recieve a red cent. Per my congressman via phone yesterday Blackbox here -- good luck all Miss the whole gang -- John Kelly thanks for keeping the forum going.. Miss that great Stardust Line

Homelessness and inflation so bad in Cali, Clampetts moving out of Beverly Hills.

HEIM has a career in comedy writing.

I wonder if he can deliver his material, too.

Remember the late Dave Scandaliato?

"The Meatman" tried his hand at stand-up comedy.

(Insert punchline here)

I saw his stand up on YouTube. It was a open mic deal where anyone can walk up off the street.

'Meatman' was a very appropriate stage name, he 'butchered' every punch line.

The only comedic talent he had was buying half points on non-key totals in football.

But loved his hour show on Vegas radio, despite a half hour of shit he was pimpin from shrimp to sportsbooks.

And there was that Cajun voice with the long pauses punctuated by some guttural sound you've never heard before.

Strangely intoxicating.

FanDuel/DraftKings will pound TV screens in California once Football season starts up until the elections. No reason spending money now.

Never bet against Nevada it is said. Too many lobbyiest stand in the way . The four Indian casinos in the nearby area are run by Nevada (ie Boyd- Casears - ) anyway. When Jackson Indian Casino first opened they had a simple football handicapping contest each week--- you needed to stand in line at a terminal for a hour or so -or go at 3 AM --it was one of the best contests ever. My feelings are people are getting their palms greased pretty good.
You asked a great question sir. Been in this industry along time--- since the 70^S - Made the biggest sb score ever and told Harrahs beforehand -- 49er's vs Broncos hit 95 out of 100 parlay cards --only loss was the Ntners to score last. Second biggest mistake was when MGM made the mistake of taking the Casears crew from Tahoe when they opened.
The sharks ate them.
Right now the only way to go is PPH it satisfies the appetite here in Calif and websites are the same . Calif would be ignorant to not legalize sportsbetting . My opinion and I am nobody .
Could say more -- great response by you sir gl to all

Take a look at the sports landscape. Major Movie Studios are parent owners of TV outlets that broadcast sports. Amazon and Apple are now in the business of broadcasting sports.

THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL THAT NEVADA LOBBYISTS STAND A CHANCE!
