Brian Clapp, WorkinSports.com Director of Content:  Fantasy sports ads won’t make their way onto the Pac-12 network, according to Conference commissioner Larry Scott. As you’ve probably noticed, DraftKings, FanDuel and others are spending a ton of money in ad buys across sportsbroadcasting but Scott has said no thanks on his network. The federal government has determined fantasy is not gambling which resulted in NCAA letting the conferences determine how they would set the rules, to which Scott said, “we don’t support it, that’s where we draw the line”

And finally, TSN, Bell Media Radio and the NFL finished off a new multi-year radio rights deal, making TSN and Bell Media the exclusive radio home for NFL in Canada. Which means all prime-time regular season games, playoff games and the Super Bowl will be carried by the  TSN radio network and select Bell Media radio stations.
