Watched Division IA semifinal from CBS Sports this weekend. Saw Life destroy Penn State 69-12, with 5 of those 12 the very end of the game.

How did Penn State beat BYU in Provo?


BYU is down a little bit this year and Penn State is good enough to pull an upset on their day. Have also heard that BYU's program may be getting a little less school support than it previously did.

Islanders converting in lower numbers now that DNA testing swows the Lamanite trope to be utter hogwash?


I don't know...weird times in college rugby. The Varsity Cup is dead, BYU lost to Penn State, and Cal are not in the CRC 7s field.

Haven't seen the game but from the sounds of it that squad would make up fairly competitive outfit or at least the spine of one if a team from Atlanta ever looked to enter MLR.

Life would always have been the spine of an ATL team. No other team in Atlanta comes close.

He's good. I'm surprised he hadn't been signed overseas sooner, actually. He's a big unit but has decent hands/distribution skills. He won't confuse anyone for Dan Carter playing 12 but he's not strictly bosh, either. I think he will do well.

My club thanks you and your buddy for the scouting report.

Also, not going to start a new thread for it, but the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (i.e. no state other than Nevada can have sports wagering on a single game) was struck down as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court 6-3. Reading up on the hearing, it was struck down based largely on states' rights grounds of the federal government commandeering states.

New Jersey, who were the original plaintiffs, will get going on this relatively soon. Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut are expected to follow.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... fca14c7f88

Quote:
The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a federal law that kept most states from authorizing sports betting, a ruling that is sure to set off a scramble among the states to find a way into a billion-dollar business.

The challenge was brought by New Jersey, which had said it could be ready within weeks of a favorable decision to offer sports betting at its racetracks and casinos. Other states are expected to act quickly as well.

The court’s 6-3 decision struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), which Congress passed in the early 1990s to protect the integrity of sports, according to its sponsors. Only Nevada’s sports wagering industry was protected, and the measure said it was unlawful for other states to authorize such gambling.

But the court’s majority on Monday said that violated states’ rights to make their own decisions, when Congress itself has not passed legislation to regulate an activity.

“The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote for the majority.

“Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each state is free to act on its own.”

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor said the law did not need to be struck down, and Justice Stephen G. Breyer agreed with them in part.

The gambling industry was excited by the decision.

“Today’s ruling makes it possible for states and sovereign tribal nations to give Americans what they want: an open, transparent, and responsible market for sports betting,” American Gaming Association President Geoff Freeman said in a statement.

“Through smart, efficient regulation this new market will protect consumers, preserve the integrity of the games we love, empower law enforcement to fight illegal gambling, and generate new revenue for states, sporting bodies, broadcasters and many others,” he added.

New Jersey for years has tried to breathe new life into its troubled casinos and racetracks by authorizing sports betting at the facilities. As of now, PASPA allows live betting on sports events only at facilities in Nevada, while a handful of other states have sports lotteries.

Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie (R) was one of the leaders of the effort to authorize sports betting in his state. Current Gov. Phil Murphy (D) has continued the fight.

“I am thrilled to see the Supreme Court finally side with New Jersey and strike down the arbitrary ban on sports betting imposed by Congress decades ago,” Murphy said.

“New Jersey has long been the lead advocate in fighting this inherently unequal law, and today’s ruling will finally allow for authorized facilities in New Jersey to take the same bets that are legal in other states in our country.”

The case is a high-stakes clash between states that want a piece of the action — New Jersey is supported by 18 other states — and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Football League, Major League Baseball and other professional sports leagues. They contend that the federal ban is necessary to protect the integrity of their games.

The underground sports betting economy in the United States is estimated to be worth at least $150 billion a year.

New Jersey voters in 2011 approved a referendum proposal to allow sports betting. Christie signed a law authorizing it and dared the federal government to “try to stop us.”

Courts did. They said New Jersey’s law violated a section of PASPA that forbids states to license and authorize sports betting. The Supreme Court decided not to review that ruling.

New Jersey tried a different tactic, taking advantage of a passing comment from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit. Although the state could not authorize sports betting, the court said, nothing in the federal law prevented the state from repealing statutes that imposed criminal penalties on the practice.

So New Jersey tried that, but lower courts said the state’s intention was the same prohibited activity.

Alito issued a strong statement objecting to the way Congress tried to outlaw sports betting — not by directly confronting the issue but by keeping states from passing laws authorizing such betting or by getting rid of laws that prohibited it.

That violated states’ constitutional protections against being “commandeered” by Congress to do something, Alito said.

“It is as if federal officers were installed in state legislative chambers and were armed with the authority to stop legislators from voting on any offending proposals,” he wrote. “A more direct affront to state sovereignty is not easy to imagine.”

The case is Murphy v. NCAA.

I hope most states go the Nevada route instead of the Canadian route. Nevada basically issues licenses to companies like Will Hill, CG, MGM, etc. to run sportsbooks and then takes a cut. Canada has a shitty system where they run it through the lottery and give horrendous odds.
