    In general, I think most (current) casino bosses and beancounters are incredibly short-sighted! They can barely envision past the current reporting period! However, the RW folks may be a bit cautious, especially when reviewing how Boyd bet the mortgage, literally, on the Echelon fiasco and almost lost their corporate @$$ to the Great Recession!

    It's been 3 and a half years since they purchased the property so saying they are a bit cautious is a huge understatement! Seemingly they want to take on a project of this magnitude with ZERO risk - that's not going to happen, not now not ever. Maybe they just don't have the visionary leadership to pull this off.

    Yeah, about as much as we saw Boyd do!

    Last week there was a report of a truck driving across the parking lot...

    And you think Resorts World will do this? I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.:whistle:

    I'm predicting there will be no values, parking fees and little in the way of competition for the big boys.

    They're adding 3,000 rooms. That by definition is competition.

    With that being said, I still don't believe it will ever open.

    real value to customers?? I sure hope so, but I would not count on it. and if they did, they would eliminate those real values within a few weeks or months of opening. and then they would wonder why they don't have any business.
