Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley Suspended Entire 2022 Season For Betting on NFL Games

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley has been suspended for at least the 2022 season after gambling on games in 2021. The NFL released a statement Monday announcing his suspension, saying Ridley gambled on games over a five-day stretch in November 2021 when he was on the non-football injury list to address his mental health. Ridley stepped away from football on Halloween, saying he needed to get his personal life in order.

Not excusing what this guy did because it fucks with the integrity of the sport. But cosnidering that Ray Rice got suspended only a couple of games for beating his wife some years back and that the NFL has fully embraced sports gambling as well as owners owning or partnering with sportsbooks, this just loosk bad.
