Putting some spin on casino article

Just a little spin on the article in the Feb. 26 Gazette, “Studies: It mostly would ‘cannibalize’”:

In the second paragraph, you report on the studies analyzing the expected loss of revenue to the existing casinos. I would like to reword it to show the flip side of that coin, the expected gain: “One firm projected the Riverside venue south of Iowa City would still gain $70 million, or 73 percent, of its revenue by 2017, while the second said it would still gain $52 million, or 58 percent, of its revenue in 2016.”

It seems like Riverside will still make millions of dollars even if there is a casino in Cedar Rapids.
