Daniel Wallach Clarifies Historic Sports Gambling Court Ruling

Daniel Wallach, partner at Becker & Poliakoff, joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to discuss a historic ruling today on sports gambling. Wallach explained the efforts in New Jersey to legalize sports gambling like they have in Las Vegas and why this will not work. The only chance the legislation has is if another state jumps in and throws weight behind this legislation so the Supreme Court will take up the case. Wallach says that until then Vegas will continue to be the only place where you can legally bet on sports.

Gregg Doyel Weighs In On Johnny Manziel’s Antics

Gregg Doyel, CBSsports.com, joined The B-Straw & Pauly G Show to talk about Johnny Manziel’s off field antics. He wrote an article about the lack of tough love that Johnny has received and how that may be detrimental to him in the long run. Doyel thinks that his incidents would be understandable if it was just one or two times, but the fact that he has so many is a very bad sign. He thinks that Manziel is working to be the Joe Namath of night life rather than Joe Namath on the field. Doyel thinks Manziel will have to hit rock bottom in order to change his behavior. Doyel says he honestly loves Manziel as a player but sees trouble ahead if he continues the way he has been.
