Jerry Jones: ‘Time’ for Texas to address sports betting
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he thinks it’s about time that sports betting be allowed in Texas.
In an interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, Jones said Texas “should be getting the benefit of it as other states are.”
“I think it’s really a thing that needs to be addressed at this time,” Jones said. “There’s a huge amount of gaming going on in and around sports at this time. And, so, to have all of the benefits or all of the control over it, it needs to be recognized and parameters put on it and discipline put in it.”
Sports betting is legal in neighboring Arkansas, Louisiana and New Mexico.
“Other states surrounding us are,” Jones added. “So, it’s a time for us to, I think, set the rules up and execute on it and get the benefits of it.”
