Gambling on sports teams has always been a big part of the sports scene for many fans. Even though it is essentially illegal it seems as though everyone does it to some degree or another. They gamble for their favorite team at work, with friends, and with professional bookies (Leckey). Like many other illegal activities there is really very little that can be done to stop the illegal betting that takes place concerning every single sport in this country. But this does not mean it should be legalized. Most sports have changed dramatically enough in the past few decades, becoming more and more competitive and more of an issue regarding great sums of money for the employment of the athlete. To add betting to the sports industry would heavily influence where sports was going and what sports were, to a very great degree. This is the case for college sports as well, in relationship to making it an industry that would be forever changed for the worse through the introduction of legalized gambling.
