I am a typical male fanatic sports viewer. Although the recent gambling accusations against Atlanta Falcons quarterback Mike Vick and an NBA official are very disappointing, what should we expect when the sports media (i.e. ESPN ) portray gambling as just another spectator sport?
All sports gambling venues should be removed from public media forums. This should include the glorification of playing poker and televising the tournaments, on anything other than pay-per-view venues. Who declared playing poker to be a sport? We can't have our cake and eat it too!
