“Thoughts as to gambling have evolved, gambling practices have evolved, etc.,” Trask wrote in an email to The Times. “The league now plays games in London where there is far greater legalized gambling than there is in this country, and, of course, the league has approved the move of a team to Las Vegas. Some owners still view gambling as taboo and are troubled by much of this, many other owners do not consider it taboo and some owners are keen on developing gambling related revenue streams.”
