Goodell wants uniform standards for sports betting
It's a rip-off and hopefully state legislatures won't go for it, but that's what the leagues want. That means betting on sports, including American football, could be made legal across all states.

Even though, the World cup has a number of songs associated with it, the official anthem stands out as it is usually performed either at the opening or closing ceremony of the football event and televised live to an estimated audience of 2 billion people.

A day earlier than Smith made the announcement in regards to the World Cup, Jam had posted an image of the pair on Twitter, saying: "The flawless of every part is the method".

The World Cup is being held in Russian Federation for the first time this summer. Twelve stadiums in 11 host cities will hold games, with more than a million fans expected to arrive in Russian Federation to support the 32 participating teams.
