It's no secret that Betfair owns TVG so it shouldn't be surprising as a partner with an Atlantic City casino, they would want to promote online gaming.
I guess it is okay for them to promote to NJ residents that online gaming is now legal in the state and encourage people to sign up.
Where they crossed the line is when they just reviewed tbe field for a Meadowlands race and decided to promote their online gaming site, indirectly encouraging Meadowlands players to cross over to the 'gaming' side. That takes chutzpah.
Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. Yes online gaming is the law and Betfair is involved but there is something wrong when you try to canabilize your partner's buisiness.
If you must run those commercials fine; be tactful and run them when talking about Delta Downs, not the Madowlands
It's a matter of repect.
