There are only four players who have been suspended for betting on NFL games in the league’s 100 years: Detroit Lions defensive lineman Alex Karras, Green Bay Packers running back Paul Hornung, Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts quarterback Art Schlichter and now Shaw. Shaw, a defensive back for the Arizona Cardinals, was given a suspension that will run through at least next season after he bet on NFL games.

Senate bill would block US companies from storing data in China

  Senate bill would block US companies from storing data in China US Senator Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) wants to make it illegal for US companies to store user data or encryption keys in China. He also wants to prevent Chinese companies from collecting any more info from American users than is necessary to provide their service. He proposed these measures as part of a new National Security and Personal Data Protection Act announced today. The changes could impact companies like Apple and TikTok. Per Chinese law, Apple began storing Chinese users' iCloud accounts in a Chinese data center last year. Apple says it still controls encryption keys, but Hawley sees this as a national security threat.

If you believe that only four of the tens of thousands of men who have played in the NFL have ever gambled on games, you’re in denial. Shaw was just reckless enough to get caught, or he misinterpreted a Supreme Court ruling on sports gambling if you want to buy that wild excuse.

The NFL, which tried to bury this news on a Friday afternoon after Thanksgiving, can pass this off as one isolated incident that didn’t compromise any games. But it’s a glimpse into one of the league’s biggest fears.

NFL wants to protect the integrity of games

Soon, most people in the United States will be able to bet on sports. In November, Colorado became the 19th state to legalize sports gambling. Others will follow. The landmark 2018 decision by the United States Supreme Court to overturn a federal ban on sports gambling, which allowed states to decide whether to make sports betting legal, made sports gambling more mainstream than ever.

NEW YORK (AP) — Arizona Cardinals cornerback Josh Shaw has been suspended indefinitely for betting on NFL games on multiple occasions this season, the first time in more than 35 years a player has been banned for gambling . The league announced the suspension on Friday.

Josh Shaw of the Arizona Cardinals will be sitting out the 2020 season because he bet on numerous NFL games this past year. "The continued success of the NFL depends directly on each of us doing everything necessary to safeguard the integrity of the game and the reputations of all who participate

As sports gambling spreads, it puts the NFL in an awkward spot. The league’s stance against gambling has always been laughably behind the times. Many NFL fans like gambling on games. The NFL resisted it forever, though the league floated some trial balloons with gambling-style contests through team sites earlier this season. In January, the NFL announced a partnership with Caesars Entertainment, something that was impossible to imagine even a few years ago. The landscape is changing and the NFL had to adjust.

And in every comment regarding gambling the NFL mentions protecting the integrity of the game. The league did so again in announcing Shaw’s suspension.

"The continued success of the NFL depends directly on each of us doing everything necessary to safeguard the integrity of the game and the reputations of all who participate in the league,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a statement. “At the core of this responsibility is the longstanding principle that betting on NFL games, or on any element of a game, puts at risk the integrity of the game, damages public confidence in the NFL, and is forbidden under all circumstances. If you work in the NFL in any capacity, you may not bet on NFL football."

Larry Ogunjobi’s one-game suspension upheld on appeal

  Larry Ogunjobi’s one-game suspension upheld on appeal The Browns won’t have defensive end Larry Ogunjobi in the lineup for Sunday’s home game against the Dolphins. That was the expectation once the NFL announced a one-game suspension for Ogunjobi last Friday for shoving Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph to the ground during an altercation at the end of Cleveland’s win last Thursday night. Ogunjobi’s [more]

Cardinals defensive back Josh Shaw has been suspended at least through the 2020 season for betting on NFL games, the league announced Friday. The league investigated the fifth-year pro and did not find any evidence that Shaw used any inside information or that any games were compromised.

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Josh Shaw was suspended through at least the end of the 2020 season for betting on NFL games multiple times this season The league said that there was no evidence that any of Shaw ' s teammates, coaches or players on other teams were aware of Shaw ' s betting activity.

Until now, there was no specific case for conspiracy theorists to cite. The NFL hadn’t had a gambling-related suspension since Schlichter in 1983. Until Shaw, that is.

Sports gambling is easier than ever

Every time officials miss a call, some fans will scream that NFL games are rigged. There’s no evidence of that and it doesn’t make any logical sense, but people believe it anyway. And with the lines being blurred on sports gambling, it will get worse.

Anyone concerned that Shaw’s punishment of a year-long suspension was too harsh isn’t paying enough attention. The NFL opened itself up to skepticism when it allowed the Oakland Raiders move to Las Vegas, and then with the Caesars partnership. All of a sudden the NFL is engaged in the gambling business, and one of its 32 teams is moving to the gambling capital of the United States.

Nearly all players are not going to risk a lucrative career to bet on NFL games when they are clearly told of the rule and the consequences. Shaw, being on injured reserve and reportedly not around the Cardinals since preseason, is about the best possible case for the NFL as these things go. It’s dubious when the NFL says there was “no evidence indicating any inside information was used,” but at least he wasn’t playing in games he bet on. That way the NFL is believable when it says no games were compromised.

  A 'Wheel of Fortune' technicality cost her a trip to Nashville. So Nashville gave her a new one. "Wheel of Fortune" contestant Kristen Shaw lost a prize package including a trip to Nashville on a technicality. So Nashville gave her an new one.Shaw, 26, of Bangor, Maine, was a contestant on "Wheel of Fortune" during an episode that was taped back in October. On the show’s second puzzle, she had a chance for an easy win. Nearly ever letter on the board had already been filled in.

The National Football League has suspended Arizona Cardinals defensive back Josh Shaw for betting on games, the league announced early Friday afternoon. Shaw ' s agent, Zeke Sandhu of Elite Athlete Management, did not immediately respond to request for comment about the suspension .

The National Football League suspended Arizona Cardinals' player Josh Shaw "through at least the conclusion of the 2020 season" for betting on NFL games. The NFL added that there was no evidence that any of Shaw ' s teammates, coaches or any other players knew of his alleged gambling .

But it’s a warning shot. The NFL has unprecedented popularity, but a gambling scandal could chip away at that. Shaw is mostly an unknown who isn’t even playing this season because he’s injured. Imagine if this happened with an active quarterback or other star. The NFL can educate and threaten and even cultivate relationships with sportsbooks to keep a close eye on any questionable activity, but they can’t keep every single player from going on his phone and placing a bet on an app, or finding ways to gamble on games in other ways. It’s easier than ever now.

Friday’s news surely wasn’t good for the NFL, but it could have been worse. And that’s the concern as they head into a new era that has made sports gambling and the NFL almost inseparable.

'Rocket League' update removes loot boxes from the game .
Finally, the trend for randomized loot boxes in games is dying as publishers move away from the unpopular mechanic. As announced in today's update notes, Rocket League has changed its approach to cosmetic items to be less chance-based. Loot box-like Crates have been replaced by Blueprints, which drop after select online matches and which show potential items that a player could create using their credits. There is still an element of randomization with the dropping of Blueprints, but players can decide if they want a given item before spending their money on it. The Blueprints can also be traded with other players.
