Blind Item #14

A minority owner (but a very large minority) of a major professional sport through a shell company is the largest owner of a soon to open sports gambling operation. The spouse of the owner made some news of her own within the past several months.

He owns 4% of the Marlins but has 20-30% stake in making decisions for the team.

Oh shoot...my bad on Jeter's team!

Jeter makes sense. Although going up against the Casinos already open doesn't make sense. The minute Florida makes gambling legal, the Seminoles open their sports books.

I don't know who it is, but I can't imagine any professional sports league allowing any owner, majority or minority, to own a sports book. At the very least, it's "bad optics."

The major shirt sponsors for middle tier Premier League teams are often shady betting sites. Usually British or Chinese.

As long as the Sports Books are paying an "integrity fee" nothing nefarious is bound to happen.
