Look, everyone is titled to their own opinion. But when your opinion is hot garbage, it deserves to be criticized. Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper, for whatever reason, dropped this gem of a quote...
“TV has been fractionalized so there’s a lot of different media, so you’re talking about TV ratings,” Tepper said. “When you add up all the social media, Apple, Amazon, I don’t think football is being affected more or less than anything else. I also think this thing we talked about a little bit before called gambling is going to make ratings go down. I just have a feeling about that. You may know more about that than me but that’s my feeling.”
Just let that marinate for a second. The spread of legalized sports betting in the United States is going to hurt the NFL's TV ratings? What's worse is Tepper had zero facts to back up his statement, going so far as to say all he had was a "feeling." David, there are indeed
out there and they clearly state that legalized sports betting is only going to increase viewership as pretty much everyone, both anti and pro, is well aware of.
