A big blow to football fans as five professional players have been suspended by the National Football League (NFL) for gambling offenses. The NFL has been imposing strict rules since it took office in 2018. The number one rule is that NFL personnel cannot participate in any form of sports betting.
For this reason, therefore, the NFL has suspended Jameson Williams, Quintez Cephus, Stanley Berryhill, C.J. Moore, Washington Commanders, and Shaka Toney. Williams and Berylhill will serve a six-game suspension for breaching the betting policy. Bad luck for Cephus, Moore, and Toney, as they have been suspended indefinitely for wagering on NFL games. The good news is that they can apply for reinstatement after the 2023 season.
The NFL policy clearly states: “Examples of activities that constitute gambling include, but are not limited to, betting on sporting events or other athletic competitions, including placing wagers at sports books and similar establishments; betting on card, dice or video games (including poker, in any of its variations); playing casino games (e.g., slot machines, blackjack, keno, roulette, craps); betting on animal racing or fighting; or participating in “sports pools.”
The NFL confirmed the suspensions in a brief statement saying that a league review uncovered no evidence indicating any inside information was used or that any game was compromised in any way.
