If you happen to be in the greater Tallahassee area on October 12, you can pop in for a seminar on Corruption, Gambling, and Manipulation in Sports
hosted by Florida State. There will be a handful of panelists including Sean Patrick Griffin, author of Gaming the Game: The Story Behind the NBA Betting Scandal and the Gambler Who Made It Happen
. According to the “syllabus” it doesn’t look like anyone from the gambling industry (maybe an oddsmaker or actual bettor?) will speak which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense considering the topic. But, someone who is commonly referred to as a “sports conspiracy theorist
” will. Sounds like the audience is going to get plenty of non-biased opinions.
