Deutsche Sportwettenverband (DSWV), the German sports body, has made an appeal to its members to refrain from taking any wagers whatsoever on any amateur football leagues due to the fact that the operator wishes to set an example in supporting sports integrity and social responsibilities in an attempt to initiate dialogue between sports associations and regulatory bodies.
Mathias Dahms, the President of the Deutsche Sportwettenverband, has also once again made an urgent request to legislators calling on them to end any legal uncertainty with regard to sports betting licenses, which has now been in limbo for a period of over two years.
Dahm is endeavoring to see an end to the “booming black market” and would like to see it being replaced with goal orientated consumer protection.
In a recent statement to the press, Dahms continued to say that it is with great concern that they are observing a growing black market at the moment. He added that it is very unfortunate that it is only a logical consequence to the German licensing chaos where, it is not only consumers and reputable suppliers that suffer, but also the State.
Dahms also said that without having a legally valid license, their hands are tied and that if it were not for this fact, they would have immediately initiated legal action against any illegal vendors themselves.
According to a recent poll conducted by ESPN, the US pay-television broadcaster, among professional sportsmen in the United States it was revealed that 63% of professional athletes polled feel that sports betting should be legalized on a larger scale in the United States.
A set of betting related questions was conducted by ESPN to a pool of 73 players from across the NFL American Football league, NHL Ice Hockey League, NBA Basketball league and Major League Baseball.
The poll shows an opposite stance to the NCAA bodies and National Pro Leagues who are endeavoring to ban sports betting in the state of New Jersey.
It was also revealed that 58% of the athletes who had taken part in the poll had participated in some form of gambling activity in the past, with 34% admitting to wagering on sports.
However, the poll also highlighted that there was concern amongst players that betting could have a potential negative impact on the professional sports industry.
Forty-one per cent of the athletes questioned felt that sports wagering could possibly cause a threat to US sports integrity while 37% suspected a current or former team-mate had a gambling problem.
The poll also revealed that 10% of athletes said that they had been approached for information about their team while 3% had suspicions that they had participated in a fixed game.
Michelle Roberts, the Executive Director of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) told ESPN Radio this week that the body had commenced engaging players in discussions with regard to the possibility of allowing sports betting on matches and that they would be researching the potential effects of sports betting in the United States, regardless of whether it became legal or not.
