    Every city has economic engines that bring money into them. They don't have to be football teams, or anything in general.

    When ony of the cities economic engines slows down, it generally impacts the others as well, and it impacts the whole. Think of a town with a big military base, the down size the base, it impacts the town. It has zero do to with football specifically.
    When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.

    Roll tide. God bless.
    We have the technology, but not the sobriety.
    I talk to myself because, at times, I require advice from an expert.
    We are all just one PBR away from being white trash and in trouble.

    yeah Dale I understand how shit works lol. If you would read my original post, it says winning or losing a football game does not affect ME personally. it has no effect on my life whatsoever. I've never had a customer call and say hey, the team lost, so I'm gonna cancel the new book cases..... I don't work on the Southside, I very rarely work on the Westside. I do not do any business currently with any merchants located around the campus. If my business and personal lifestyle was actually affected by a football game, I'd pour another drink and ponder where it was in life that I fucked myself by making bad decisions.....

    They have been building motels on Appy like hillbillies plant corn the past year or so.

    This town had too few, now likely has too many.
