It appears that the Chairman of the Mass Gaming is none too impressed with the Brockton Casino and was bad mouthing the project ….hard. Now the commission voted to reject the Brockton …license. You could see where this was going…. right to the crooked set up.
Relying on the Tribe to pull through for the region is pretty shady, in light of the fact that financing the project is a fantasy and becomes more and more tenuous every day. Leaving Mashpee out there alone to serve the region is a doomed prospect…course Crosby knows that. He has no love for us..
Think about this. If we are left to build a casino in the region, you can bet it will not be a threat to any gaming facility anywhere in the region. Our guess is that failure is the desired result. All the the gamblers will head to Everett to the Wynn casino. Wynn is very cozy with the power elite involved so he stands to benefit in a scandalous way.
Clearly, the Gaming Commission is not interested in looking at the true financials of our Asino….that were released by mistake a few months ago. Maybe the Globe would like to take a look. Those documents show the Asino going in the hole $25 – $45 m a year. Why do they care? Taunton gets paid and so does the Wicked Wamp 8. And their buddies make a load.
We get a doughnut. And the only game in town is Wynn.
