There’s a new San Diego Padres Rumor posted over on YourSportsFix.com. Enjoy!
I was asked to do this sponsored review of a trivia site that supposedly allows you to answer questions for a chance to win a cash jackpot. Being a fairly big trivia fan, I decided to check it out. Triviaonnet.com was the site and sure enough they have music, entertainment, and most importantly to me, sports trivia. The prizes all vary in size but the sports jackpot is around $750 at the time of this writing. So that’s great right? I mean it’s free to sign up, free to play and you have a chance to win some cold hard cash!
Well not so fast there trigger. If you’re in certain parts of the US (I believe most states actually), you’re not actually eligible to play or sign up for that matter. According to their FAQ page, " Due to recent federal legislation, Individuals logging in from various states are banned from playing real money games." That wouldn’t seem to prevent US citizens from signing up but when I tried to register I was given this error message "We cannot process your registration due to legal ramnifications of your territory legislation. We apologize for the inconvenience."
The spelling error aside, it seems to me like someone’s legal department needs to double check what’s written on the website. Personally I think all the gambling laws need to be rewritten to include the reality we now live in where anyone, any time can jump online and wager money. But, until those changes are made, it looks like I’ll be watching from the outside when it comes to Triviaonnet.com. That pretty much ***** as well, especially when I saw there’s a $10k Tournament scheduled for December! Good luck I guess to all you international trivia buffs, and Triviaonnet, let me know if people from IL ever become eligible to play on your site.

Well it’s been a long time coming but the all new Rumor Mill has been launched! Scoot on over to yoursportsfix.com/mlbrumormill to take a look at the new digs and even check out a Los Angeles Dodgers Rumor!
From now on all the mlb trade rumors and news items you’re used to finding here will be featured over on the new site. I will post over here on a fairly regular basis for a while with links to remind everyone where to find the most up-to-date news and notes from around the league. It’s been fun being a part of the MLBlogs community but it just doesn’t offer the flexibility and options I was needing.
Thanks and I’ll see you over at the new stomping ground!
