NFL Bans Poker

Yesterday I wrote about the NFL banning a fantasy football convention, because it was going to take place on a casino property.

Today there's news of the NFL further cracking down on gaming, by banning three Miami Dolphins players from playing in a $94 buy in poker tournament in Florida.

This just further shows the hypocrisy of the NFL when it comes to gaming. They are ok with fantasy football, the Saints holding training camp at The Greenbrier, and MGM having an advertising deal with the Detroit Lions. Players having a convention in Las Vegas or playing in a poker tournament is a problem though.
