Casino expansion stokes pokie debate
The casino boom comes as the NFL is in the midst of negotiations with a potential new team for its Oakland Coliseum venue.
The Raiders are expected to play in Seattle soon, but they may be out of the market for the foreseeable future. That doesn’t bode well for the league’s proposed new Seattle-specific stadium, which would be located roughly 20 miles from downtown Seattle.
