    Sports betting

    So in the DC TV/radio market we are being bombarded with MGM, Fanduel and other sports betting ads every few minutes.
    I am curious if the same is happening in your area and what your opinion is on it.
    I have done the casual superbowl bet but nothing like what they are pushing. Is anyone into it?
    sums it up a thread will start off promising and then turn into name calling..
    The easiest way to tell when an argument has no merit is when the protagonist mixes in some personal insults.

    I play quite a bit of daily fantasy sports, more to entertain myself as opposed to earning income. I do pretty well in NFL and CFB and then proceed to donate what I make back into the UFC and NBA, for reasons unknown.

    Lifetime, I would think I’m mildly up, but if you put a hourly rate on the amount of time I spend on it, I’m not making much. But I do enjoy it and I never bet more than I am willing to lose.
    As you go the way of life, you will see a great chasm. Jump. It is not as wide as you think.

    No...

    absolutely zero interest in betting other than an annual 60 dollars to play in the same FFL for the last 15 years.

    I do not bet. Not against my religion, but I work hard for my money and don't give it away.

    Plus, I suck at betting with no money.

    I don't bet because I learned the hard way after hitting rock-bottom. About 15 years ago, I lost my life savings and my house to gambling. My wife left me and I had to look my young son in the eye as he tearfully asked "why don't we have a house anymore daddy?" It just tore me up inside like you can't imagine and I haven't gambled since. Just kidding...none of that actually happened. I'm just not that interested in gambling, so I don't do it.
    It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

    I'm not a gambler but everytime I've done it I came out ahead, I think it's beginners luck.

    I put $1 in a slot machine, won $25 and stopped
    Was on vacation in KY, bought a "pull tab" at a gas station, paid for our whole weekend
    Played a $1 hand at Blackjack in a casino won $22, bought an $8 lunch and left with casino money in my pocket.

    Definitely not my thing but feels kinda cool that I beat the house every time. Even if it was for chump change.

    Ok well it must just be the DC market that is being bombarded, it is insane how frequently they run them.
    They must want a bunch of addicted kids and adults given the frequency.

    I play the market. That's enough of a casino for me

    FUBO TV is now getting into betting too if one uses them.

    This was a great 4 part series I recently watched. As for your question as to why it seems we're suddenly being inundated with advertising for sports gambling.....You're not imagining things. The first 10 seconds of the trailer for Action explains it.

    Highly recommend watching this if you can. I don't even gamble but they did an amazing job of pulling you into that world and making you actually feel the raw energy and excitement of betting on sports. It was a lot easier to wrap my head around why some people lose any semblance of control once they get into it hardcore.
