Re(1): And So As To Not Be Hypocritical.... & The Silvermark Quote.....

Overall, most Jai Alai frontons have received more funding over decades after it was obvious, they would remain money losers than most other money-losing operations in the nation. Coupling was a trick utilized to force this to occur.

Any sane businessman would have fought for de-coupling, and it was the correct thing to do.

This sport which I enjoy must either live or die on its own two feet.

Now I maintain the strike killed the casual fan base, which learned slot machines do not slash tires. But whatever reasons they left for, the casual fan base spiked attendance in Southern Ct and Florida many times what the rabid fan quantity ever was. So, when that segment left the closing of frontons became inevitable. I abhor the sham operations, but the closing of frontons I completely understand, as it made no business sense to keep bleeding millions annually.
