    I think a major Casino/Hotel/Spa resort is a little too invasive of the surrounding community.

    I'm for it, but I don't live anywhere near Foxboro. I am sure if I lived in Foxboro, I would have a different perspective. Everyone is in favor of a casino in Massachusetts (ok, not everyone) as long as it isn't in their back yard.

    It will save me on gas money as it's half the distance as Foxwoods or Moghegan Sun.

    I make a yearly pilgimage to the Foxwoods to pay back the indians (25 cents at a time) for stealing their land. ;)

    My understanding is the NFL hates gambling. If that is the case I don't see this happening.

    Steve Wynn and his partner (Japanese dude who made his money in Pachinko) have had a bitter falling out. I saw an article recently, but I forget where.

    The Wynn in Vegas is probably the best hotel I've ever stayed at. I would love this to happen for when I visit Foxborough. It would sure beat driving back to Tewksbury to crash at my brothers.

    Disable Jersey

    I could not care less about gambling. My only concern is that this will make an already horrific parking situation even worse, eliminating existing lots and creating the need for even more parking spots and increasing traffic on game days and worst of all nights.

    I would love to have a casino in my back yard. My wife and I are responsible gamblers (we're up for our lifetime and don't gamble beyond a set limit per year) but the whole NIMBY hysteria people have about casinos is anachronistic, imo.

    Mohegan Sun/Foxwoods are a benefit to CT and the surrounding cities. More jobs means less crime.

    I think people have this ridiculous 1960s Las Vegas idea of what a casino brings in. These days they are glorified shopping malls where you can smoke and drink and lose money.

    I'll rephrase. A giant hotel/Casino/Spa in addition to the current huge football stadium and shopping complex would be a too much consistent traffic for the local area to handle IMO.

    As another poster said, everyone wants a casino unless it's in your own backyard.....

    EDIT: ....except for the previous poster that is. And I agree that people are getting too hysterical about the "prositutes and bums" that will be attracted by a casino. Clearly that is delusional. This project will only improve the local economy.

    Writing this message from Encore in Vegas. Nobody does hotel/casinos like Wynn. I don't think I go/would go to casinos anywhere but in Vegas, though. Foxboro should be flattered he wants to build a casino there, though. These days everyone seems to feel like the money is in Macau, Philippines, etc.

    To clarify, that dude is his BUSINESS partner...He was operating the casino and Wynn fired him for taking bribes or something along those lines.

    I don't care either way about a casino going in because I'm not a gambler. But I think the local residents who are up in arms about the prospect of Foxboro falling prey to crime and moral decay because of it are idiots.

    This would be a great thing. Anything to leverage more money so the Pats tickets prices don't get even more ludicrously high in price.

    Oh wait, too late. Maybe enough money might get Kraft to redesign the stadium to seat 100,000+. Also Casino's bring in great designs for gigantic parking garages.

    And maybe then the Krafts could buy out some businesses in the area and use that for more stadium parking/other stuff.

    And maybe then I could actually find a reasonably paying full time job with benefits.
