Doug Gottlieb reacts to the breaking news that Atlanta Falcons WR Calvin Ridley has been suspended for gambling on football. In Doug’s opinion, they can’t come down on Ridley hard enough because his punishment needs to deter other professional athletes from doing the same thing. They need to throw the book at him to secure the integrity of the sport and keep the public's faith.

Doug Gottlieb: “For sports gambling, there has to be the punishment so severe it is a deterrent...they have to scare the living bejeezus out of every professional athlete. You can’t gamble on your own sport! Period, stop!”
