    Is raiding football pools legal? Are football pools legal? I have no idea, I always thought pools were ok:confused: Of course this IS NJ were talking about so who knows:singing:

    $800,000 +- isn't exactly chump change, some pretty heavy hitters were in too, including law enforcement, athletes, etc. About 4,000 pretty p***ed off people right about now:eek:

    I'm in a suicide pool that has about $30,000 in it.

    Funny you could go down to Atlantic City and lose your shirt playing poker, but god forbid you put some money in a football pool. Oh, the hypocrisy.

    While I would normally feel bad for a guy running a pool getting busted, this wasn't some $50 office pool. At 3/4th of a mil, this is every bit as much an illegal professional gambling parlor as anything you'll ever see.

    They are mostly illegal and every bit an American tradition as turkey on Thanksgiving Day.

    What a shame ... the smoking gun appears to be the tips he received.

    Somebody wasn't getting their 'taste' of the tip anymore.
