From my understanding turning stone is still only allowing residents of certain zip codes. It’s not up to the state

The Oneidas are in bed with King Cuomo & will do whatever he desires & that is why they closed for the COVID in the first place....as far as entrance goes, I believe that you have to live within a 120 mile radius & be a NYS Resident

Bethel is racing with fans and have been racing with fans for a few weeks. I have been told that several big dollar backers of Cuomo's campaign live in the area and basically told King Andrew to let Bethel race with fans or they would pull their funding. 

I believe that 100%...the Mafia still lives....it's in Albany!

It's my understanding NYS has no jurisdiction to keep the Indian run casinos closed. If the state was so worried about making money they would've allowed the commercial casinos in the state to open as well.

 

You don't think the state is worried about money as they ready to go bankrupt?? And this was before Covid. Cuomo will be on his knees in front of Trump soon begging for help. Now that should be a PPV.

If they're so worried about making money then explain why ALL casinos are not open?

The election is more important than money.

Wow, that's great news. Bethel puts on a great show.  If you've never seen the street stocks run there then you don't know what you're missing. And the NASCAR all American mod series is running there too, like Whelen car with 602's and skinnier tires.  Money talks and King Andy needs that $$$ coming in.

Also the Casinos are all following very strict rules on masks and gloves and other checks on all staff and have extreme air filtration systems. They have people constantly cleaning the machines and protective barriers between the dealers and the players.

Watkins Glen has its Nascar race pulled. Guess Cuomo's playground doesn't get to make any money either!!! Eldora Truck race has been cancelled as well.

I know race tracks don't net a big profit and therefore don't end up paying a lot of taxes. I'm not so sure that Casino's net big profits either, even if they pay taxes. I think that may be just a myth?

I thought every ticket was taxed? Its just included in the price. I think casinos are doing pretty well also. I've never seen one go bankrupt.

Well I don't know about the Casino has, and it's owner did it 3 more times. great business man.

You know in the 70's Glenn Donnelly petitioned the state to allow betting on the modified races at Syracuse.

You must not pay attention, a whole slew casinos have gone bankrupt over the years.   Several in Atlantic had to close a few years ago.  The whole Caesar's palace chain had to declare bankruptcy. Several of the older Vegas casinos like the Riviera had to declare bankruptcy before closing.  Contrary to what some people believe, casinos are not a lock to turn a profit in the long term.

5 years ago. Old news.

I wasn't saying it was current.  The reply was in response to a poster saying they'd "never seen one (casino) go bankrupt".  Simply pointing out that I have, in fact, seen a casino go bankrupt.

So was this a NASCAR decision to move the race to Daytona? A NYS government decision? or a Watkins Glen International decision?  

Are fans going to be at Daytona?  Wondering if Watkins did not want it with no fans?

NASCAR has held races with no fans in the seats this season for many events  

Seems odd  based on covid data the news keeps spitting out,  that NASCAR would feel safer in Florida vs  NY?

It wasn’t nascar’s decision. Cuomo wouldn’t grant them the waiver they needed

No you did not say it was, I did. I respect your point. The topic is more on the current place we are in. Or maybe I'm wrong. I get it.

Today the king said he is not giving up his absolute power until covid 19 is gone. He should be able to save us taxpayers some money by not paying any of the legislators. Since he has rendered them 100% useless. They gave him the power to make every decision in the state. They have received a lot of complaints from the people they are supposed to represent , but will do nothing about it . I can't believe people in other states believe he is doing such a wonderful job,  when all he is doing is driving this state into the ground.
