To assert total costs of the regular process of updating poker machines as a cost of policy reform is simply absurd. No industry in Australia does a better job of taking from those with the least and giving to those with the most than the poker machine industry. The idea that using some of the money lost in leagues clubs to boost the salaries of professional rugby league players should be considered a “contribution back to the community” is simply bizarre.
