On top of that it looks like the Wampanoags have some problems of their own. It seems that Middleboro still feels their agreement is "valid and enforceable", and they are invoking a "dispute resolution clause" to bring the Wampanoags back to the table.
One thing is clear, and that is that the Wampanoag's track record for getting things done isn't really very good! They started the ball rolling in Middleboro back in 2007, 3 years later they've switched course and are now trying their luck here in Fall River. Considering the obstacles Fall River has to overcome before any ground breaking will take place, I don't imagine things will be much quicker here. And there is already serious doubt being expressed about a casino happening at all in Fall River.
It's also true that not everyone in Middleboro is upset to see the tribe scrap their plans. There has been a lot of belief that a casino in Middelboro would ruin the character of the town and bring too many problems. That's a topic that hasn't even really been touched here in Fall River!
This whole mess would almost be funny, IF it wasn't happening here.
