When the Cost of Winning at All Costs Is Too High
This concluding chapter reflects on the continued trend of widespread gambling in the U.S. entertainment industry—which, among other factors, has contributed to the frequency of betting on college sports to this day—and the consequences thereof. Gambling has since become the norm, and with college sports programs being especially profitable ventures, game rigging as well as the exploitation of the players will continue to remain the norm rather than the exception, as the chapter explores more recent trends in sports betting. To conclude, the chapter discusses the possibility of further legislative regulation on sports betting, but warns for the consequences should such laws be enacted.
