While the intention is noble, attempting to boycott a casino is a cause which will not bear fruit..... unless you have some sorta NHL goon squad lined up outside the casino :twisted:

A Little Off Topic Here

I live 1 mile from Veijas Casino here in Southern California and like it or not, having a casino in your town has more downfalls than positives.
Crime is the number one problem. Since the Casino went in here, Thefts and Violence have risen dramatically, as well as gambling addiction.

we've had our car stolen twice and a rash of breakins in our neighborhood. I've personally seen marriages destroyed by gambling problems.

I'm not trying to be negative about a casino in Pittsburgh, but there is a reality that goes along with it.
I'm just a little suprised that due to the economic condition in Pittsburgh, a casino can cause a lot of problems

Just my thoughts
