lotta leg-work on your part – the conclusion is that the Phils is such a, shall we say, mess, that people don’t “stay bought” long enough to really get anything big done there. Hard to believe Macau is better, but Steve W was probably right – stay away from the Phils.
Still, this whole Wynn-Okada tiff is interesting, and chances are they will kiss and make-up someday. After all, it’s just bidness.
Stay on the story – it’s not finished by a long shot.
In your background on Okada – what you missed is the whole story of the “near-miss” and how he was ripped off by IGT. That has made him determined to get even, and ponying up $300m to Steve when he was on the ropes was a smart move. Okada is a real fighter.
