How can they afford the contracts of Nash, Carter, and Umberger long term if they keep averaging 13k per night?
I could see the owners looking to get out if this doesn't start to turn things around for the BJs, but I don't think that necessarily means relocation. Columbus is a solid market. They just need a well-run organization to fully exploit it. Easier said than done, though
edit: Viqsi, maybe you can shed some light for me. Isn't Columbus losing money? If so, how do you see this Carter deal affecting that?
