States will be able to pass their own sports betting laws and tax the wagering. Let the free for all begin. Everyone wants a piece of the action.

I expect a giant influx of income into the Pittsburgh area in January as yinzers almost universally bet against a Mike Tomlin led Steelers team against a vastly inferior opponent.

I am torn.

In a free country people have a right to be stupid.

However in a free country people also should have the right not to be forced to bail out stupidity.

The next step is that state governments are going to pick the winners in this.

The people who really care about this have been gambling online for years. This won't have much of an impact on anything.

The more states that get into it dilutes the tax take. It may not be that big of a windfall for each state.

Cuban says the value of sports teams just doubled with betting.

Not that Texas wouldn't approve of such a measure, but I'd say a bribe of $600K might do the trick.

I think Cuban and the owners are under the false impression they can control this the way they control their teams. But maybe he's right if its an extension of their local monopoly.

I would hope that local governments are not stupid enough to make billionaires twice as rich as they are but that would be a mistake in underestimating the stupidity of governments that build stadiums for these assholes.
