We all know the driver in increased value of sports TV time and the teams and the players is based on huge increase in the money spent on legal gambling worldwide. So the big story which is never written or gets very little exposure (just like the tiny short blurbs on TV warning about gambling addiction, adds nobody can read) are about the losers . Gambling addiction is huge . Is this good or bad ?
Very interesting to see the franchise valuations!
