ESPN's Outside The Lines: South Florida Youth Football Stands Teeming With Gamblers
ESPN's Outside the Lines spent some times in the stands watching South Florida Youth Football League games-- which feature 30,000 kids aged 5 to 15 from Palm Beach to Miami-- and emerged with a pretty stunning short documentary on how gamblers have turned the matches into their own personal cockfights.
From a coach confronted with footage of him exchanging money, to brawls breaking out in the stands, to young players stashing hundred-dollar bill graft payments in their uniforms, the evidence here is beyond damning. The league's website now has an alert about gambling, saying that any coaches caught gambling will receive a "lifetime ban".
Most surprising to us is that criminals really wear spiky mohawks like that. What is this, a cereal box?
