Casino gaming should of only been a stepping stone to economic development. It should only of been used as a tool to move onto a diversified portfolio of entities for tribal prosperity. But too many tribes embraced casinos as an end all. As with anything tribes do, the "others" will find a way of taking it for themselves. I believe many many tribes will do nothing to ween themselves off the reliance on gaming, and one day will wake up with little left for their tribes/people. Internet gaming will become a reality regardless of the amount of money tribes spend to oppose it. The smart ones will position themselves to take advantage of it and/or diversify to lessen the blow when they lose that 25% or more of revenues to their competition. And, with states hurting for revenue, how long will it be before more states legalize gaming in their state? A tribe that relies on a majority of their income and jobs to be supplied by a casino is going to be hurting. . . . . . . .this is only my opinion, your opinion and reality may differ.
