Falcons star gambled on games.

Blog King, Mass Appeal

ATLANTA — Quondam Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said owner Stephen Ross offered him remuneration incentives to lose games on purpose. Many fans and media members believe Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes pulled a Paul Crewe in this year’s AFC title game. Commissioner Roger Goodell once drew a juxtaposition between the NFL and WWE. Now we’ve learned Atlanta Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley was slapped with an indefinite moratorium for gambling on games. Just goes to show the NFL is faker than Kim Kardashian’s embonpoint. The rigged consortium issued a statement Monday afternoon saying Ridley, 27, gambled on games in November 2021 while he was on the non-football injury list dealing with a psychological disorder. The Pete Rose wannabe disseminated a tweet claiming he bet a measly $1,500. He also said, “I don’t have a gambling problem.”

Goodell sent Ridley a missive notifying him of his suspension.

“There is nothing more fundamental to the NFL’s success — and to the reputation of everyone associated with our league — than upholding the integrity of the game,” Goodell wrote. “This is the responsibility of every player, coach, owner, game official, and anyone else employed in the league. Your actions put the integrity of the game at risk, threatened to damage public confidence in professional football, and potentially undermined the reputations of your fellow players throughout the NFL. For decades, gambling on NFL games has been considered among the most significant violations of league policy warranting the most substantial sanction.” 

Ridley was scheduled to earn $11 million in salary and he threw it away over $1,500.

The dude clearly has mental issues.

  1. I like how the nfl cracks down on things outside of the nfl and makes sure everyone knows about it but if you can’t do insider betting in the NFL then maybe they should come out and promote against insider trading 😂 oh wait that’s not there agenda, rules for thee not for me🥴

  2. This guy quit on his team this year which is disgraceful to begin with

  3. The only people allowed to make money off gambling is the NFL front office and the officiating crew. AND THATS IT!

  4. NFL is rigged. Mahomes didn’t try to score just watch it with your own eyes. Why did he take the sack n fumble? lol. Mahomes is following the script the executives are giving to him. What you don’t understand is that when you lose, you win. They will reward puppet Mahomes. just wait on it

  5. That’s ridiculous. If he’s not playing and the NFL officially supports sports gambling; they can’t get mad at gambling.

  6. smoke a joint , your done for the season, you gamble on games as a player, your done for the season. if you beat your wife half to death though , the best the nfl can do is 6 games lol you can’t make this up

  7. Can we stop pretending that sports aren’t fixed in some way. This topic drives me nuts

  8. So if he is not playing and affecting the game, What is the problem?

  9. Can’t cure stupidity. However Ridley will cry racism and reduce his suspension for preseason games.

  10. Idk how the commissioner could talk about integrity of the game when clearly the games are swayed by calls/no calls more than ever, and more games come down to the wire by penalty momentum killers

  11. The hypocrisy of NFL is stunning. They can make money from gambling but not have their players do it.

  12. @Seeking Truth: Just some things to look into in regards to the NFL being rigged. It’s likely been rigged since the late 80’s if not before but today there is no bigger reason for it to be rigged with sports betting being as big as it is, and lets face it the house doesn’t like to lose, nor can they afford to lose if the better team were to win every Sunday. The other fact you need to check and confirm for yourself is that the NFL is not filed or listed as a sport in their business licensees. They are listed as an entertainment company, and the fine print clearly states that they may change or manipulate the outcome of any game at any time for the purposes of entertainment. Lastly Mahomes did not throw the game for any other reason other then he was told to do so. It does not take a genius to determine that many of the games on any given Sunday are rigged/thrown by the better team because it makes for great television and again the house does not like to lose, and when you have literally millions of dollars on the line from betting on a game you can bet your ass that the house is going to have a say in the outcome of the game at the end of the day.

  13. Here at the NFL, feel free to gamble with your life, future/ families future; your body, your brain, mental health and/or family name. Just don’t gamble with YOUR money…. this comment is sponsored by Caesar’s Sports book, Fan Duel, Fantasy football and loads of other gambling avenues. And if you’re ever in Las Vegas- come see an NFL game👍🏈🤣🤣🤣🤡

  14. You cannot tell me a hot Mahomes all of a sudden went in a shell that second half. The NFL is tired of Mahomes mania and the Chiefs. They made a story about how about Burrow being the choice. The NFL is rigged and Mahomes play along with his weapons made it obvious the NFL is a gambling ciss pool. It is all about the money now and who fits that story . It was the Bengals I would not be surprised if the Chiefs see another SB until Allen, Jackson, or Herbert sees at least one appearance. I do not take the league as serious as I used to I will still tune in it is entertainment. But also a gambling empire.

  15. >>NFL takes gambling advertising money
    >>NFL allows gambling to sponsor their league
    >>NFL lets casinos advertise during their games
    >>NFL has OWNERSHIP STAKES in gambling corporations
    >>Ridley plays some Draft Kings

    NFL: “Oh Ridley… how COULD you? Ceasar’s Palace will be very disappointed when they hear this” cashes their chips

  16. If Brady or Gronk had done the same thing this story wouldn’t have seen the light of day. And furthermore if it had it would have no legs. This is bullshit.

  17. Beat a woman, you’re banned for 4-8 games. Bet on a game? Banned indefinitely. Capitalism ladies and gentlemen

  18. Owners bet on games every season every week . Come on now stop it!!!!

  19. Seems funny to be in bed with every huge sports book and then complain about gambling. Should have avoided the fanduel and draft kings partnerships, can’t put it back in Pandora’s box.

  20. So the screw-ups running the NFL have gotten in bed with organized corporate gambling….
    In 3 yrs the league will have the same integrity as the WWE.

    Offer a league minimum player a million to take out a starter…….why not.
    What would it cost to bribe a deep snapper?
    A gunner, or return man?
    You fools.

    Goodell has so fd up the game…..

  21. The NFL have they own government they do what they wanna do with them players

  22. If Nancy Pelosi can insider trade with no repercussions, I’m ok with a less harsh of a sentence for Calvin, but they both know the rules.

  23. But the Dolphins owner actually trying to lose games and nothing 😂

  24. people aint looking at this in it’s simplest form…DUDE COSTING HIMSELF $11 MILLION IN SALARY B/C HE WANTED TO BET A COUPLE GRAND… That should be damn headline lol hustling backwards to the 10th power smh..and anyone defending it or asking what’s the harm is just down right crazy and don’t know sports’s clearrrrrrly stated there is a zero policy on this…the same idiots out there saying oh sports be rigged..yet asking why can’t athletes bet lmao

  25. Common sense isn’t common anymore.!! Ridley just proved it.!! Enjoy your 1 year vacation. And the 11 million you just lost over 1,500 . Sad 😞

  26. Why not just have one of your homies lay the bet for you? 🤦‍♂️
