And So As To Not Be Hypocritical.... & The Silvermark Quote.....

Lest I be called a hypocrite, by history I have posted herein under a fictitious name / nom de plume.

For some time I posted under "Walter Griggs." The name had/has no special meaning and I don't where I came up with it.

I used it because I was working for FGC at the time and I was asked to avoid responding to public comments because FGC was publicly traded and there were concerns about my making a statement that might be out-of-bounds with the SEC. I also imagine there was some concern that I might go-off and embarrass the company with some tirade in response to something I did not like.

However frustrating I find some of the comments I read in here from time-to-time I believe it is and has been a valuable forum. I don't have any problem with people wanting to remain anonymous - its easier.

Bada - quoting from the Silvermark lawsuit, a group that was very unhappy about how that particular deal went, is totally not fair. As crunch time came they asked for concessions that were untenable and it got ugly. LOL, they did fine in the B/K and got a significant "break-up" fee for their time and legal fees. So even they got millions without ever paying a dime towards "Jai-Alai" which is what this forum is dedicated to.

For the record, with unlimited resources or significant income there is no trick to operating Jai-Alai. To quote my good friend Benny Collett who has a pretty awesome sense of humor - "Do you want to know how to make a little money in the Jai-Alai business? Start with allot of money." That was in the early 2000's before it became evident that they would wind up with literally nothing.
