There's two types of people in the corporate world, the ones who understand what they don't manage, and the one's who manage what they don't understand.
In my professional life, it never ceases to amaze me how stupid some higher ups are. Mostly it's more about who you you know not what you know but these types sometimes wind up in jail when they try hiding their ineptitude from the balance when business conditions become challenging.
I think investment in SFNO would be unwise, and I'm glad the idiot's didn't get the money to do it unlike HRP, which was incredibly near sighted.
I dont think our park will reopen but here is another statement from the SFNO fansite from Danny Rogers.
Dear Reader; After some soul searching, and much time to consider what is at stake, I have once again started down the long road to try and save the park. I know this will not be an easy task, nothing worth doing ever is. There are a few things I want to make very clear right from the start. 1. The City Government will not be easy to convince that this is in there best interest. 2. As of today there is no funding other then what I am placing into the fight. 3.The Park has been hurt by not only the Storm but Six Flags as well as Vandals. 4. The cost to just reopen the gates will come in at at least 35 Million Dollars for "STAGE ONE" 5. The Park can be reopened for the spring of 2010 6. This will require a GRASS ROOTS call to action! I am making that call. 7. Sponsors for the park must be found, companies or persons who are willing to spend money in support of rebuilding the Park, in exchange for consideration in advertising or other considerations (like but not limited to a company day at the park) 8.A Volunteers Group needs to be formed. (Friends of the Park or the like)
The list is long but I think I have made my point. I can not do this alone as I do not have the backing of a company like AMVEST as of now however I am looking.
This is just painful to watch. Someone needs to sit down with this guy and point out how utterly ridiculous he is acting in attempting to start a multi-million dollar venture by writing a few childish forum posts and begging people to waste their time helping him.
I'm not saying the concept of revising the park in some form or fashion is out of the question, but this guy is just making a laughing stock out of the whole idea.
