NFL Looking Into Las Vegas Arm Wrestling Event Featuring NFL Players

NFL Looking Into Las Vegas Arm Wrestling Event Featuring NFL Players

The players involved reportedly could face fines for violating the league's gambling policy.

This latest occurrence will certainly cause the National Football League to receive some criticism, considering the Raiders are moving to Las Vegas in just a few years. After the news of the Raiders move broke, a Nevada brothel owner announced he was opening a Raiders-themed "sex palace" with player discounts.

The tournament was hosted at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The event was cancelled, then was cancelled again past year, with organizers again saying the league pressured them into the cancellation - despite the event moving to Pasadena, California in 2016.

NFL VP of communications Joe Lockhart said none of the players asked in advance about taking part in the event.

Three things James Harrison loves: lifting weights, sacking quarterbacks and needling the NFL.

Reigning champ Willett opens 2nd round with an 8
Hoffman's four-shot lead was the largest at the Masters for the opening round since Jack Burke Jr. had a four-shot lead in 1955. Four-times major champion McIlroy appeared to be struggling in the wind and was three-over after the front nine.

Smith, Rahane propel Supergiant to victory
RPS secured the services of Ben Stokes, who became the highest paid foreign player in the history of the tournament. Smith and Rahane stitched 58 runs for the second wicket from seven overs to lay the foundation for the run chase.

Bill to make excise, customs act compliant with GST passed in LS
But still, concerns were raised about the sweeping powers of the GST council, the GST network and the GST rates. The GST Bill was first proposed by the former finance minister of India P.

The league's stance is that besides games of chance, casinos in Las Vegas also have legal bookies that accept bets on sporting events.

Marshawn Lynch is among the players who could be disciplined. The event was littered with other National Football League players, including a strong showing by several soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders (punter Marquette King, running back Jalen Richard), with irony so thick you could cut it with a knife.

The league's gambling policy states that NFL players are not allowed to participate a promotional events at casinos.

The USA Today report names a few of the players involved in the event, including Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills.

That probe was more personal for Harrison, who was cleared by the NFL before the regular season but clearly felt the league had no right to force interviews over a report debunked by the story's primary source.
