The Real Deal Miami

Dolphins could look at casinos

October 24, 2011 01:06AM

The Miami Dolphins could be in the market for a casino license if
Florida’s legislature expands gambling statewide, possibly in the land
surrounding SunLife stadium. And the Dolphins aren’t alone — Miami
Beach could seek a similar deal, potentially at the Miami Beach
Convention Center. “That has been talked about,” said Miami Beach Mayor
Matt Bower. “People have said maybe this is a place to put [a casino].”
There are a series of obstacles on either side, including the NFL’s
prohibition on gambling. According to State Rep. Erik Fresen, the
Dolphins are interested in casinos, although the team itself said it
would not pursue one — rather, it would protect the interest of the
site in potential gambling talks. [Miami
