Three major players join American Gaming Association

I'm reliably told that Wynn Resorts, Station Casinos and Churchill Downs will soon be joining the board of the American Gaming Association.

All three companies are proponents of online betting, which means Sheldon Adelson, the crusader against web gaming, is increasingly isolated.

Not sure Adelson cares. But the interests of the AGA, which is a fervent proponent of web gaming as a portal to the industry's future prosperity, and Adelson, who is spending a lot of money to kill Internet poker, continue to be dissonant and only emphasized by these new additions.
