There is some fine print for those who have purchased stock in the Green Bay Packers or are thinking about stuffing the holiday stocking of a friend or family member with a share in the franchise this season.
And it’s not good for those who may be interested in wagering on the NFL.
Darren Rovell of CNBC found this little nugget and it’s worth checking out.
“If the Commissioner determines that a shareholder has bet on the outcome or score of any game played in the NFL, among other things, then the Commissioner may fine such shareholder in an amount not in excess of $5,000 and/or require such shareholder to sell his or her stock.”
So, owning stock in the Packers and getting down on NFL games – not just Packers games – is a big-time no-no. That goes for wagers that otherwise would be perfectly legal in the state Nevada.
