Currently stationed in western NY. It's a shame that NYC basically dictates how the whole state is run, when when most people I interact with have the opposite views of the state gov.

What difference does it make whether it happens in NY or not?

This whole fuss that an event in Madison Square Garden would be such a huge deal is BS. Who cares if it happens there?

Let's talk NY for a moment.
They have casinos near Philly, in AC, Foxwoods (CT), Mohegan Sun (CT), Bensalem (PA), Bethlehem (PA). For someone who lives in NYC, these would be the closest places to go.
A bill was floated that would allow casino gambling in upstate NY, about 1 hour outside of NYC, but shot down.
All the NYC gamblers lose their money out of state, and the tax revenues go to other states too. They could have kept it in state, since it's something that's going to happen anyway, but they didn't.
we actually have 2 big casinos in nyc

Those casinos are not "Las Vegas" style casinos meaning that they don't have table games like poker or blackjack. They are restricted casinos unlike the ones on Native American reservations.

Several weeks ago in NYC a Boxer took a beating which lead to him blacking out after the fight and having surgery which required part of his skull to be removed so his swelling brain would be relieved of pressure, all while falling into a coma.

If you ever thought MMA was in a difficult stage in trying to become legalize in NY, Magomed Abdusalamov's unfortunate circumstance may had made it take a turn for the worst.

Poker? Blackjack? Craps? Tell me where I can play, I'll be there next month.

C'mon, you know what I mean.

And that stuff isn't coming to Monticello any time soon.
