As the NFL paves the way for putting a team in Las Vegas, it continues to push back against the ongoing effort to pave the way for sports wagering in all 50 states. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whose state’s effort to launch sports wagering sparked the lawsuit that will be resolved by the U.S. Supreme Court, has sharp criticism for the league’s effort to have it both ways.

“The hypocrisy is just so overwhelming,” Christie told Andrea Kremer of HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. “They say because we have the Giants and the Jets and the Devils that somehow we shouldn’t be allowed to have gambling here because somehow it will threaten the integrity of the game. Well, [are] you kidding? How isn’t it threatening the integrity of the game in Las Vegas for the NHL and the NFL? . . .

“I mean that’s why they no longer have moral high ground on this. They cannot make the integrity of the game argument anymore . . . because they have now gone to the sports gambling capital of America and put two of the four major sports now, having teams in that city. It’s over.”
