    Sheldon Adelson worries online players will get "hooked"... LOL

    Sheldon Adelson is the CEO of mega casino company Las Vegas Sands.

    You might think that his business would feel threatened if online gambling became legal, and gamblers no longer had to enter his physical casinos.

    Thus it's no surprise that during an interview on BloombergTV, Adelson slammed online gambling as a toxic trainwreck.

    Of course, he doesn't say he's against online gambling because it will hurt his business. He says it's all about society and the possibility that gamblers will get too hooked.

      I'm actually surprised, and relieved, there hasn't been a backlash about the "evils" online gambling will bring. There's always some group trying to stick their finger in your eye. The plus of this flying just under the radar. I'm sure at some point criticism will come but too late.

      Earlier this month CEO of Caesars Palace, Gary Loveman, was interviewed and was all positive about online gaming. He pointed out the differences of online players and live players. His only wish was for some type of Fed guidelines for all states to follow.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Don't plead the obvious. Of course Sheldon Anderson is a complete phony worried about his own bottom line.
      What kind of man would be willing to fund the likes of Newt Gingrich?
      The thing is, Newt was will to kiss the ring of Tel Aviv. That's what the money would buy.
      Romney was willing to do the same thing.
      A pox on all their houses.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
