just the thought of having a casino next to Citifield disgusts me,there are so many things wrong with this idea but the worst of them is even the possible consideration of such an arrangement by ownership IF indeed that's the case
i think we have to wait for more details but if this is true they should be ashamed as they've embarrassed themselves and the Met franchise once again
maybe the Wilpons will change the name of the team to the New York Bets
if building a casino within arms reach of a MLB franchise is how they were going to try to recoup losses from the Madoff scandal the rest of the owners should honestly vote them out
also, I thought mixing sports and gambling was frowned upon by MLB?? Isn't that right Selig? I expect you, Selig, to fight this because of this reason. But WILL he? I definitely wouldn't be surprised if he turned his head...
"Selig and Wilpon are longtime friends." -New York Post
Just in case there was still any doubt about that issue...
IF the Mets got away with this ,, I would imagine every other team would want to have a indian owned casino next to their park also.
And not for anything -- but that is a legal loophole that should be closed.
