New NFL Policy Toughens on Game Fixing, Betting on Own Team

Sep 30, 2023

The National Football League is changing its gambling policies to more appropriately levy punishments.

In a memo to all 32 NFL teams from commissioner Roger Goodell, the league stated that any player caught betting on an NFL game will be suspended for a minimum of one year; that punishment increases to at least two years if the player bets on a game involving their own team.

Any player caught leaking inside information for bettors or using a third party or proxy to bet will also face a minimum one-year suspension. Any player caught fixing a game, or even attempting to, will result in permanent banishment from the NFL.
