It is now illegal to internet gamble in the United States! Any thoughts?

This could really impact many people who love to gamble via internet offshore. Does that mean you can't gamble in the United States ever again?

My thoughts: It's always been illegal!

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Please, don't even get me started with the hypocricy of the legislation on gambling. Just take a casual look at the promotion that poker gets at this time...

It's dumb to gamble online anyway. You have no control of whoever is writing the program/scripts of the game. For all you know your odds could be 10 times worse than going to a casino.

Yay for vcash.

We are talking about gambling on sports results here, not some stupid games, aren't we? Few of my friends are still doing that through bookies who accept Paypal or Webmoney. Some opened checking accounts overseas, that is even simpler if you can do that.
