    Then don’t say shit like “4-6 weeks “ and “after the World Series”

    Just say “we don’t know yet” and keep it pushing

    Well this sucks. First the Blazers get a new cheapskate owner, then they lose half their revenue to this new competition. Enjoy what we have, because it's all downhill from here.

    As for you PdX_Farr, interesting board there.

    So if this truly is a scam...

    Mike Barretts reputation is tarnished forever, right?

    That's literally my only hope that this isn't a scam. That he (and Wilson) wouldn't want their reputation tarnished.

    What's the scam at this point? What are they hoping to gain?

    Money for something else? Whatever that is... just doesn't seem worth it in such a public way... but true morals would be shown.

    I just can't believe two squeaky clean guys would want to scam... that's why I have my doubts as to it being a scam.

    Raise money and then.... keep it? I guess I don't understand. The scam that I heard at least made sense. Buy land for an arena at a discount and then sell it for a profit.

    Perhaps announcing other ballpark property options helps them to get an even deeper discount on the property they plan to eventually purchase and later flip for a profit?

    What part of that article gives you evidence of a scam? That PPS property was always going to be a political nightmare for the PDP people, and the other property they bid on in NW Portland was bought by another group.

    I'm guessing that is the reason why they bid on those two properties at the same time to begin with. I don't think this is a scam at all, but in the end if it doesn't work out they could simply develop the property anyway.

    Pulled the bid, because they finalized another deal?

    So, let me guess, they couldn't come to an agreement on a price for the property.... and they ae searching elsewhere?!

    Boy. You guys are right, First class carpet baggers.... no fooling you guys.

    Their jokes. Probably over the heads. Something was fishy when Barrett said back in July 4-6 weeks and nothing happened since
