    As gambling spreads around the country Vegas
    could be in more and more danger of being obsolete.

    so I keep reading these articles, and seems all the bigwigs have the answers as to why the profits are down.

    so now Im figuring, they just don't get it.

    :) I doubt that Sir, that big lake they got out there, ain't so big anymore either. Hey, how about a golf course? A golf course on the strip, wouldn't that be something. But, those need water too, so, maybe not. :cool:

    Good point. Don't suppose the hotels have purchased some season tickets to include in their comp packages, eh?

    Back in the 60s there was a golf course on the strip.
    It was out at the Hacienda I believe.

    oh yeah. There is actually a nightclub on the top floor that is either run by MGM or is affiliated with them. I guess while you take a break from dancing and drinking...you can peer over and watch the games, or a concert.

    MGM also owns the arena (maybe 60/40 or something with an entertainment company). Funding it was accomplished thru charging for parking at all their properties. The arena was the original impetus for "pay to park." They needed an additional cash influx to justify the bank note.

    So it would be the ones like Red Rock, and the Station Casinos, that be first to go? That makes sense, what a shame.
    I checked airport traffic, and it's about a million a week, and rising by about 2% a year, so the problem, may not be an overall shortage of customers, but rather casinos, that approach from the WRONG angle, i.e. The "Asian Themed" places and such. :confused: Not enough of them to go around I guess? :) That's too bad. :cool:
