Decoupling to be the final straw for jai-alai?

The horrible word of "decoupling" was brought up this week as 7 South Florida pari-mutuels got together and lumped jai-alai into the mix that has mostly included the dog tracks.

The racinos would not have to run dog racing, or jai-alai events in order to keep their poker licenses.

Dan Adkins, President of Mardi Gras Casino in Hallandale Beach even compared jai-alai and dog racing to the Seminoles being forced to open a dog tract or fronton to keep their gambling going. He said "it would be like telling GM to build an F-150, but you still have to build the Model T"

Funny, but Orlando, Dania, and Miami don't even have the word "jai-alai" in their titles anymore on their websites. They must know something is coming....
