Sports betting in Virginia is now a reality after the state lottery approved an online sportsbook operated by FanDuel through a partnership with the Washington Football Team. Meanwhile, two dozen other would-be competitors are still waiting to see if they will receive one of what is expected to be a dozen additional permits to operate online sportsbooks. FanDuel jumped on the head start it received from the lottery.
Matthew Stafford, the No. overall pick of the Detroit Lions in 2009, is set to part ways with the Detroit Lions, the only NFL team he's ever known. Now, the man who drafted him, Martin Mayhew, was just hired as the Washington Football Team general manager.
