Read the news article. It was Churchill Downs that laid off its employees.
"By the way, some of you on this board seem happy about the Calder layoffs. Begs the question: do you have souls?"
Who's happy? Only two people posted about it besides you.
Now, pretend you own a business. Would you lay off your own loyal employees in order to hire someone else's? Keep in mind you already have the best employees because you wouldn't have kept bad people in your organization.
And it's strange how you ignored the part of the story where it says Frank did hire 50 employees from Calder.
Bottom line: Churchill is cashing in on slots and firing Florida employees.
They promised so much money for education if they could get slots.
Then they claimed they needed ATMs. That's why they couldn't deliver the cash.
Then they whined about the tax rate. So Fla cut their taxes. Still the co didn't deliver.
Then they sues Hialeah to stifle competition.
Now they've given up on horse racing and fired hundreds of people.
I hope Illinois doesn't fall for the promises.
beton4s spent 7 years trying to win your approval.
Then he spent the next two years getting all his posts deleted.
It's tough to find good catfish and possum in N California. So CHDN prefers to speculate in west central Mississppi and sw Ohio.
Probably the same number as watched the World Cup on he big "board".
Churchill Downs is stuck in dying, boring games (slots, horse racing, and peeing in public).
What a waste of $12M!
Joey Chestnut is the real American sports hero for 2014. He finished off more than 60 hot dogs despite the weather conditions.
California Chrome is forgotten.
Some day CHDN will be in the hemp business. That's after they figure out that slots are dead.
They'll get into this business by overpaying for now barren pot farms well after boom.
Calder would look a lot if they tore down the dilapidated looking building and planted some vegetation instead.
How many years did Bet4s spend bragging about how great the mngt was? Recently he just loved their decision to erect the big board. Now he's decided he resents the 1% and wants what's theirs in the form of a hand out.
Beton4s, using different Yahoo IDs, has spent the past 9 years pumping the stock and praising every decision made by its management.
Was beton4s paid for all the time he spent virtually patting the CEO on the back, or is kissing a mans rear end just a hobby of his?
Turnouts and ratings for the World Cup, Tour de France, and Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest show what America wants in terms of sports entertainment. Companies like CHDN have allowed their products to be dominated by these up and comers in the ner marketplace.
Bye bye derby. Hasta la vista Triple Crown. Good riddance California Chrome.
tomorrow with an eighth straight win in the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.
And ESPN will make history again by dominating the Derby television ratings with it's broadcast from Coney Island.
What are you, a Bob Evans groupie? We don't care what he's buying or what he's selling or what he's eating for lunch.
