Non-Profit Fan Group Pitches A Different Kind of Sports Betting Bill

A consumer non-profit once involved in NFL TV blackouts and stadium public financing is shifting focus to legal sports betting.

Sports Fans Coalition announced Monday plans to advocate for a Sports Bettors’ Bill of Rightsin sports betting bills nationwide. The proposal includes five tenets that are “designed to encourage sports fans to leave the underground illegal sports betting market and conduct safe transactions,” according to executive director Brian Hess.

“Ever since the Supreme Court decision to overturn the federal ban on sports betting, we’ve seen states scrambling to legalize the activity. However, many are doing so without regard for consumer well-being,” Hess said.
