The National Football League has filed a lawsuit to block single-game betting on NFL games in Delaware, a move that state House Majority Leader Peter Schwartzkopf called "blatant hypocrisy." Other sports leagues have joined the lawsuit, which also seeks to prevent betting on professional baseball, basketball and hockey games. Schwartzkopf notes in a two-page letter to the NFL's commissioner that the league has contracts with television networks that promote gambling on their Web sites.
