I don't give a crap if players gamble. But if the league has already warned you to stop while you're making 20 million a year, you reap what you sow. It's not like the dude needs freaking money. I guess I just don't understand why people like Vick and now A-Rod apparently need to get their jollies off illegally gambling. Like I said, they obviously don't need the money and you'd think playing professional sports on national television in front of huge stadiums would be enough excitement. Nope... they gotta gamble in illegal gambling rings. Like wtf? Go on a rollercoaster. Go skydiving. Go jetskiing/boating. So many options for other thrills and excitement and they have go break the law/league rules to have fun.
