Rolling Over?

One can't help but wonder if standardbred and thoroughbred racing is rolling over when it comes to Governor's Christie's Transition Team report regarding the future of racing in New Jersey which was discussed over the weekend here.  I can understand the silence over the weekend, but here we are three days into the work week and other than a few isolated comments, there has been no protest or any statement from any industry group.  One needs to wonder why?  True this report is merely recommendations to the Governor who can accept or reject all or part of the report but unchallenged, the report will gain momentum.  Perhaps horsemen are shell shocked that this report ever saw the light of day after contributing large amount of funds to the Governor's election campaign?  The silence is deafening.  I wish someone could explain this to me.
