Meaning them re-opening to the US market is not understood to be an imminent thing, but something which will require future political/legal/legislative action.
Again, my friends said they are implying this based off some vague reports they've heard from insiders privy to information about the deal. It appears no one said anything explicitly.
This would be my guess too. However, hope you can clarify your sentence, "FTP will be marketed as a clean poker site..."
1. Do you mean PS/FTP? Or just FTP?
2. When you say "marketed"... do you mean that the DoJ is sort of lobbying for them? Or just that they are marketing themselves as clean? I don't see why PS does the deal if it's the latter. Seems more like they would want some kind of assurance that the DoJ will push for them when they are up for license review (or whatever system gets put in place).
