    • I'm curious if a lot of these NFL players that are gambling and getting caught (and will get caught with the second wave of investigations) are gambling addicts. There are a lot of them that have probably never revealed this addiction in the past, and with gambling being made legal in the U.S. and easier than ever to access on sites like Fanduel and Draftkings, it's so much easier to gamble and become addicted to the point (in Rodgers case) where you make 100s of bets because you are a millionaire.    There's also possible inside information and the possible desperation among rookies and lesser players to make money because they aren't getting paid yet or they aren't good enough to get a payday, that they could easily use info that no one has access to to not only win games, but to possibly rig games slightly in schemes like point shaving. Point shaving happened in college basketball with Stevin Smith at Arizona State when he had to pay back a debt for gambling and wanted to live the high life.    There's just so many things that can be opened up with gambling these days in sports, and if you are addicted, that makes things worse. I'm curious if Rodgers is a gambling addict. If he's making 100s of bets, there's certainly a possibility. 
    • Dear Isiah Rodgers,  You knew what you were doing when your family and team needed you. So with the most sincerity, I have one thing to say….
    • If he bet on the Colts to lose IMO he will never play again.    If he bet on spreads of Colts games IMO he will never play again either.   If he bet on the Colts to win, he might get a chance to play but still I'm not sure.   If he only bet on other games or other  sports he probably will be reinstated at some point(probably next year).   He knew what he was doing. He knew it was against the rules and that's why he used another person's account to place those bets and not his own. He thought he won't get caught. I guess the positive is he's taking responsibility for what he's done, but there will be ton more steps before he convinces the league and an NFL team to give him another shot.    Such a shame for a talented player to waste his career like that  
    • How did this guy come up with Pittman? It is Rodgers who isn't even close to Pittman . Not good but not a huge blow either. He had promise but only played 9 games last season. Ballard will probably roll with the Rooks and go get a vet. If Rodgers bet on us to lose, he may get a lifetime ban. Disturbing.
    • I'm astounded at the number of people here passing harsh judgements and talking about worst cases without having full idea about what exactly he's done.    We could wait until we get enough information to see if he bet on Colts games, whether he used the inside information he'd have known in betting, and how innocent or guilty he was in committing what he did.    I'm sure Colts organization would look at it objectively with complete data than fans would ever know, and they'd take a prudent decision.
