Goodell’s cousin, a New York State assemblyman, has gone on record to suggest DFS contests are indeed a form of gambling.

“In my mind, it’s clearly gambling. It’s sports gambling,” Andy Goodell said, via sports attorney Daniel Wallach.

Legislators in New York are currently mulling over whether DFS companies should be permitted to operate in the state legally. 

It is interesting to note that Roger Goodell has contributed thousands to his cousin’s campaign.
