Have Everybody Bet?!

| 1 Comment

An interesting error on the front page of NYTimes.com:


times_betting_error.gif

It links to this story about FIFA requiring players to sign pledges that they will NOT wager on games. However, I would love to see a game in which everyone was required to wager on games -- especially if a player was required to wager a large sum on his own team.

(Note that by the time I posted this, 15 minutes had passed, and the error was already corrected.)

VERY interesting commentary. I'd love to see player salary reflected in player performance - your team loses, you lose, big time. Pros make enough money to live without a game-by-game salary, and it could be a heck of a motivator - and not only to get new players in the sports.
