Players banned from betting

Players banned from betting

The NFL on Friday suspended three players for at least the entire 2023 season for betting on league games, while two others received six-game penalties for betting on the outcome of college games at facilities owned by their team.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Quintez Cephus and safety CJ Moore, along with Washington Commanders defensive end Shaka Toney, will be sidelined indefinitely, but at least for now next season. You are betting on matches to be played in 2022 and must submit an application to return to the competition in 2024.

Receivers Jameson Williams and Stanley Berryhill, also from the Lions, were also penalized for six clashes despite not betting on NFL games. On the other hand, Goodell Circuit prohibits the use of its equipment and formations to bet on sporting events. Both athletes can participate in off-season activities, including pre-season duels.

Visibly unfazed by Cephus and Moore’s behavior, the Detroit club released them later that day.

In 2022, the league similarly penalized the Atlanta Falcons’ Stevan Ridley, who bet on games the previous year. In major league baseball, the case of Pete Rose remains one of the most famous in North American sports. The former Cincinnati Reds manager and player was banned from his sport for life in 1989 for betting on games.
