    Default Former NFL player arrested in Internet gambling sting

    Former Chicago Bear and New York Jet Todd Burger was arrested over the weekend in an alleged Internet gambling sting.

    Burger is alleged to have collected bets for www.beteastsports.com, an illegal Internet sportsbook based in New Jersey. Burger is a four-year NFL veteran, playing from 1993-1997.

    Five people were arrested and authorities seized $70,000 in cash and a handgun.

    If I were going to operate an illegal Internet sportsbook in the United States, I'm pretty sure that New Jersey is the last place I'd choose to live ... this is like the fourth or fifth bust of the same kind in NJ.

    I think your right. It's the "real" street level reaction of the ban. So, instead of regulating the industry they (US gov) would rather have street level X-NFL jocks collecting bets door to door?? It doesn't make any sense.

    They simply pushed sports betting underground with all that comes with being "underground".

    Hi all,

    personally if i'd made even league min over 4 years ..... I'd likely be able to retire lol.

    that said ...... agree with Wager. prohibition only promotes illegal enterprise and greatly increases its profit margin.
    Almost Here! How would you like to be able to get not just one sign up from your player, or even a couple, but every single casino they join from here on? I've a plan that can make that happen and it will likely also tell you every time the player is active within the casino.
