    If you understood how much he has done for both Cleveland and Detroit you wouldn't say that.
    Would love to see CET buy all 3 and Dan to buy the Lions.

    Im about 10 mins from Jack in CLE and 25 mins to JACK Thiseldown but usually drive 35 mins to Hard Rock. just not a massive fan of JACK. Comps blow. As soon at TR left the first time I stopped going as much as I did.

    If you understood the damage he caused with Quicken, to both the public and its employees, you wouldn't say that

    I understand the company he started. Live in the state he is from. Alumnus of the same college. Oh I do know a few employees of Dan's.

    I will be glad to see someone else come in and run them. JACK Cleveland and Thistledown are much worse since CET left!

    I agree on the casino and wish CET would take them over. I wonder how it would work with Caesars Windsoracross the river from Greektown Casino. Will see

    I really want CET to buy them. I loved staying at the Cleveland Ritz for free, but have been back only once since they left CET.
    Gilbert also owns about 30% of Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, so I see CET buying that piece at least.
    Caesar's Windsor is a lease from the Ontario government and it expires in 2020, and they just got done with 3 month strike. So they could buy the MI assets, which won't close until 2019 and then leave Windsor in 2020. Sports betting could be a big factor in this decision.

    The problem is the state of Michigan had a rule on having distance between same ownership casinos. I believe it's 50 miles. If the state would ease the restriction it would be a no brainer I am sure.
    Wish sports betting would be legalized soon.

    CET doesn't own Caesars Windsor, they just manage it for the province of Ontario. I wonder if their contract with Ontario would allow them to also operate a Detroit casino (Greektown). It would be great for me, personally, but I don't know if it will happen. I suspect that CET will purchase the Ohio properties, and Greektown will be sold to somebody else.
