Spokespeople for all three organizations spoke in front of the Ohio Select Committee on Gaming Wednesday afternoon, complaining that the sports betting bill, as crafted, is a rotten egg. Or a 7-10 split. Or a misread scratch-off (lottery metaphors are objectively difficult to conjure up).

David Corey, the executive vice president of the Ohio Bowling Centers Association, was borderline livid when describing what he sees as the “unworkable” portion of the bill that deals with the Ohio Lottery and the betting “pools” the bill proposes.
