Twitter reacts to NFL making Caesars its first ever casino sponsor

Roger Goodell

For a league that seemingly wanted nothing to do with Las Vegas not all that long ago, the NFL suddenly can’t get enough of Sin City.

On Thursday, the NFL announced that it has signed a partnership with Caesars Entertainment, which is the league’s first official casino partner. As sports business reporter Darren Rovell notes, the NFL is still “against” sports gambling, so the deal does not include anything related to that area.

With the Oakland Raiders soon moving to Las Vegas and the 2020 NFL Draft expected to be held there, the NFL-Caesars partnership is not a surprise. There were still plenty of great reactions to the news on Twitter, however.

We saw similar reactions when the NFL announced that the 2020 draft will be in Vegas, but this is reality now. The NFL has found a new revenue stream, and it is going to be a game-changer for the league and its owners.
