Great newsletter as always. Two thoughts:
-betting on marathon or other endurance sports. Just legalize it. And issue everyone who places a bet a pass to the next Gamblers Anonymous. Because it’s a sure-fire way to identify problem gamblers.
-media motos - as an official I’ve spent enough time at the pointy end of races to know that they’re not the problem. Clearly define the rules to the drivers and media and empower officials to kick them off the course if they continually misbehave, and let them do their job.
