PLAYERS UNIONS CONCERNED ABOUT EXPANDED LEGAL BETTING

Players believe the new landscape will add to the venom already directed at them by fantasy sports participants and bettors. Veteran free-agent offensive lineman Eric Winston, who this spring was re-elected as NFLPA president for a third term, said that the "dehumanization of athletes" is a weekly occurrence on social media after games.

"A lot of people look at us as -- I don't know if it's subhuman -- but not necessarily human, not necessarily having those feelings those issues that everyone else is having," Winston said in a video presentation at the conference.

Schwab used LeBron James' decision to join the Los Angeles Lakers and its impact on the NBA title odds as an example of the need to protect the privacy of athletes. The Lakers' odds were as high as 20-1 prior to landing James, but shortened to 7-2 after the decision.

"That information -- what our athletes are doing, where they're going -- has a price tag on it," Schwab said. "And as more money goes into sports betting, that price tag goes up."

Schwab said the players' union and the NFL agree on the current priorities, especially when it comes to protecting the public's perception of the integrity of the game.
