NFL will fine players for attending event at Las Vegas casino

The four-day Pro Football Arm Wrestling Championship was deemed off limits to players after it wrapped up on Sunday at the MGM Hotel and Casino. "This is a longstanding policy".

According to an industry source, Harrison, Moats and Pouncey could be subject to a fine but would not face suspension for their involvement in the event. The Raiders are set to play at least two more seasons in Oakland before moving. Vegas, baby. What happens in Vegas (except in this case) stays in Vegas.

But this has to be, HAS TO BE, the strangest reason this side of a uniform violation why Harrison or any National Football League player has been fined to date.

To review, gambling like FanDuel and Draft Kings?

Monday has proven to be quite the banner day for weird news. After all, it's the league and its owners who couldn't resist the dollar signs attached to having a franchise in Las Vegas. How this will affect him or any other player remains to be seen. A 1992 federal law bans sports betting, but that is being challenged. If New Jersey would win, other states surely would follow.

Dare we say the NFL's latest Las Vegas-related controversy is - ahem - over the top?

Harrison posted several pictures on his verified Instagram account, including one with mixed martial arts fighter Tito Ortiz and another with professional arm wrestler Travis Bagent in which Harrison wrote, "Lockin up with the Champ!"

He added: "As a credible piece of indie-pop balladry that moves Styles into a new arena, I'd say he just about pulls it off". Harry Styles has revealed that Adele gave him a very generous 21st present - a copy of her own album 21.

Marshawn Lynch is among the players who could be disciplined.

No Arizona Cardinals players were listed in the initial report.

The tournament was taped by CBS and will be broadcast by the network May 27, according to Harrison.

The NFL said it was unclear how many players participated.

"This is one of those things you don't even think about", he said.

The NFL has now reportedly launched an investigation into whether players broke league rules which prohibit players from appearing at Casinos in a promotional capacity.

USA Today Sports was the first to report the story.
