Default NFL Policy On Gambling (Players Please Read)

The subject of bribes and gambling are covered each summer in special training-camp discussions with players by members of the League’s Security Department. You should be familiar with Paragraph 15 of your NFL Player Contract (entitled “INTEGRITY OF GAME”), which stresses these and related subjects, as well as with the text of the following sign which is posted in every NFL locker room:


To National Football League Personnel
Bribes and Gambling
Among the types of conduct detrimental to the NFL and professional football that call for serious penalties are the following:

1. Accepting a bribe or agreeing to throw or fix a game or illegally influence its outcome;

2. Failing to promptly report any bribe offer or any attempt to throw or fix a game or to illegally influence its outcome;

3. Betting on any NFL game;

4. Associating with gamblers or with gambling activities in a manner tending to bring discredit to the NFL.

Any such conduct may result in severe penalties, up to and including a fine and/or suspension from the NFL for life.


You should also be aware that the League has a longstanding policy against any advertising or promotional activities by players, clubs, coaches or other management personnel that can reasonably be perceived as constituting affiliation with or endorsement of gambling or gambling-related activities. All club employees, including coaches and players, are prohibited from being associated with such activities through endorsements, commercials, ads, or public appearances. Violators will be subject to appropriate discipline.

Promotional appearances by players, coaches, or other club personnel involving casinos, sports books, gambling cruises, or similar activities are not permitted.
