NFL Flip Flops

Just a bit ago I wrote about how the State of Delaware approved parlay card type gambling on NFL and NCAA football games. Both the NFL and the NCAA were upset at this, and the NCAA has threatened to remove championship games from the state (if they haven't done so already). So what does the NFL do next?
Well, of course, they approve the Redskins to put their name on an instant lottery ticket of some sort in the state of Virginia. As a matter of fact, the NFL, being starved for revenue, has said that any team may do this.
So let me get this straight - it is OK for the NFL to market it's teams in a state lottery where people pick stupid random numbers, but it is horrible for the NFL to market it's teams on parlay cards? Whatever.
