BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court rules that federal ban on state-sanctioned sports betting is unconstitutional. Decides case in favor of New Jersey. Floodgates now officially open for other states to allow sports betting. #RIPPASPA— Daniel Wallach (@WALLACHLEGAL) May 14, 2018

Decision wasn’t even close! 7-2. Shame to think these leagues were holding us hostage for so long. No more. Commissioner Goodell, time to face the music.— Warren Sharp (@SharpFootball) May 14, 2018

Notes on how @NFL will react to the sports gambling news: 1. Maintaining integrity of the game is the highest’s priority. 2. It won’t rush into the biggest pot of dollars. Will slow-play this & think long-term. 3. The direct dollars will come from licensing, logos, videos & data.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 14, 2018

The Supreme Court just ruled it is legal for states to allow sports betting. MLB and its lobbyists are trying to persuade states that the league should get a cut, which could mean even more money flowing into a financially healthy league.— Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) May 14, 2018

NCAA will revise is "sports wageing and championship polices to align with the direction from the court." Re: SCOTUS ruling, striking down federal ban on sports betting.— David Payne Purdum (@DavidPurdum) May 14, 2018

Quick thought on Supreme Court decision: with widespread legalized sports betting coming, college coaches who detest talking injuries better get used to some version of NFL style injury reports.— Chuck Carlton (@ChuckCarltonDMN) May 14, 2018

Never thought I’d live through a time where marijuana and sports betting were legalized. This ripple effect from legalized sports gambling is going to be enormous. ESPECIALLY for big-time college sports.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) May 14, 2018

This is an historic day, but it was coming. The inexorable march of sports betting in this country -- in the light, not the darkness -- was inevitable.— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) May 14, 2018

How fast will states be able to implement sports gambling? A lot depends on whether the particular state chooses to be regulated or unregulated. Legislation and oversight for regulated will take significantly longer.— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) May 14, 2018

Monumental day in SPORTS history! Finally! Now the industry's second gold rush begins in earnest. Fantasy was the first with the advent of broadband connections. By the end of 2019, expect numerous states to offer some form of sports betting. https://t.co/etyJsBGWKm— Brad Evans (@YahooNoise) May 14, 2018

"So, you're still not going to pay the athletes?"

NCAA: "Nope. Too complicated."

"And everyone else is going to make a killing from legalized gambling?"

NCAA: "Well, it is a free market."

"But you don't want the players betting on games."

NCAA: "Never happen."

"Okay."— Doug Farrar (@BR_DougFarrar) May 14, 2018
