Re(4): another day at orlamdo evemts

Not a mind reader what ownership is planning but here's what I think. I'm certain Jai Alai will never return. I believe they are holding out on the sportsbook for a few different reasons. Waiting to see what if anything ever happens on decoupling and the outcome of the greyhound ban initiative which I believe will pass. They are also waiting out court cases and appeals questioning DPR's authority on Jai Alai regulations w/o legislature approval. I think they are also willing to litigate up to a point if necessary on Orlando's 30 performance violation. Without slots or poker, the permit itself is basically worthless. I do think they will try to make a go of it as a performance venue for boxing, MMA and concerts for now and forfeit the permit later if they have to. Not sure what that does to the liquor license but at worst it has resale value. The owners also own surrounding property so demolition is very possible. Sorry, but greasing commissioner palms won't do any good since poker would still have to be approved by Seminole voters first. And hoping for some deep pocket investor to resurrect Jai Alai in Orlando has about as much chance as an investor building a vcr factory. Without slots, nobody in their right mind would invest a dime in Jai Alai by itself. I love Jai Alai but also love drive in theatres and they won't ever be back to Orlando either.
