First of all, let me be clear, I am in full support of the jobs and the money that Batavia Downs generates for Genesee County. But, with that being said I am not surprised that management at WROTB/Batavia Downs would file a complaint such as this. Their complaint is a sign of weakness by management, and it shows that the Seneca Nation is a threat to their own personal jobs. The sad part is that WROTB/Batavia Downs is a poorly managed business, they treat their employees like garbage, and unless you are part of the “in club” they don’t give a crap about you whether you are an employee or a customer.
As for the casino/racinos, there is already an over saturation in this area and in 15-20 years only the strong will survive. In the end there will be a plethora of unoccupied buildings falling apart and costing tax payers money. This whole move to build casino after casino is crazy, it’s a novelty that will wear off unfortunately just like horse racing.
I am aware that some people may take offense to this comment, but I have seen too many people hurt by the people who run WROTB/Batavia Downs over the past 10 years. The one thing that hasn’t changed is the management who continually thinks they are better than anyone else, and will back stab anyone who isn’t part of their “in club”.
