So if I have this correct...1% goes to teams for the integrity of the game. Betting is legal in Vegas and is there a 1% integrity fee there? While I want to gamble legally, there is no way these teams that will do nothing to regulate the system deserve 1%, this is a how has the best lobbyist play. The gambling industry regulates its self with government regulations etc.
