Every once in a while, a person comes along with more money than they know what to do with, and these people tend to be stubborn. That can be the only explanation to why the owner of the Jacks or Better cruise casino based in Mayport is preparing to take on the NFL in court.

The league has asked that Jacks or Better LLC take down a picture of Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback David Garrard from the casino's website. The owner of the casino has refused to take the picture down, and the case may now be heading to court. The casino is also in trouble with Major League Baseball over a copyright infringement of a Florida Marlins player.

The NFL, as is usually the case, is claiming ignorance when it comes to gambling. They claim that not only is Jacks or Better violating the copyright, but also associating the quarterback with gambling. The NFL has long denied that they understand that gambling drives their sports popularity.

"We are not prepared to strike our colors just because a giant machine like the NFL comes down on us for spurious and superficial reasons," said Mark Slotkin, President of Jacks or Better, in an e-mail written to the league, as reported by Jacksonville.com.

It is likely that Slotkin wants nothing more than the publicity that comes along with a legal battle against the NFL. The casino's own lawyer has warned that if a legal battle ensues, the end result may be costly. Still, Slotkin has not backed down and claims he has no intention to do so.

Wagering on the NFL is a multi-billion dollar industry, but the NFL continues to claim that they are against betting on their sport. Last year, owners in the league showed what many believe to be a hypocritical stance on gambling when they agreed to allow teams to partner with state lotteries. The result was thousands of lottery scratch-off tickets with team logos printed on them.
