Not surprised at all. Look at how they are fighting (along with the NBA, NHL, MLB and NCAA) New Jersey's attempt to add sports betting and how they managed to get Delaware's attempt at restarting NFL betting reduced to parlays only. They've not allowed Las Vegas mentions during NFL games (Even going as far as forcing NBC to move the show Las Vegas from Monday nights since they would be promoting Monday night programming during NBC's Sunday night games.) It appears that the NFL does not like people being able to bet on individual games under the thought that players may be involved in game fixing and with a parlay, that is less likely to happen.

There's no way that they cave in to the NCAA in regards to sports betting, as the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament is big business for the sports books in Las Vegas.

The thing is that's how most cities fund new stadiums and arenas. Here in Atlanta, the Georgia Dome was funded via the hotel-motel tax in the City of Atlanta and that tax was extended in order to help fund the stadium that will be replacing it. Philips Arena was funded via a rental car tax in the City Of Atlanta as well as the City Of College Park (which is where the airport rental car facilities are located).
