May 4 - Vegas says no more n*ggas and nappy headed hoes....
 

 
LAS VEGAS -- MGM Mirage Inc.'s chief executive does not want the NBA All-Star Game to return to Las Vegas, saying Thursday that the casino's first-quarter earnings were potentially hurt by the rowdy crowd that turned out for the league's showcase game.

"The gang-bangers and others who came for purposes other than attending the game, they weren't very good for Las Vegas."
-- Terry Lanni, MGM Mirage Inc. chief executive

Terry Lanni made the comments after the company, which owns the most casinos of any operator on the Las Vegas Strip, reported first-quarter earnings that fell below analyst forecasts, sending MGM Mirage shares down more than 4 percent. They rebounded 2.4 percent in after-hours trading.

The company said the earnings shortfall was partially due to a partially problematic crowd that surrounded the All-Star Game in February, which fell on the same weekend as the Lunar New Year -- a crucial period for bringing in high-rollers from Asia.

"The gang-bangers and others who came for purposes other than attending the game, they weren't very good for Las Vegas," Lanni told The a.ssociated Press.

Lanni said there was little action on the gambling tables the day of the game.

"There's a big difference between out-of-towners coming to Las Vegas to party and locals going to a ball game. The crowd that was disruptive is different from loyal Las Vegas fans who back their home team."
-- Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman

"In talking to our casino hosts, a number of people stayed in their villas and suites. They felt uncomfortable," he said.

Excluding Beau Rivage, which opened in Mississippi in August, quarterly casino revenues slipped 6 percent from a year ago, and table game revenue, including the baccarat game that Asian players favor, fell 7 percent.

There was a spike in arrests and complaints about rowdy behavior during NBA All-Star Weekend. Five people were shot, including three outside a strip club. Tennessee Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones and two friends are being investigated for their roles in an earlier brawl at the club. The NFL suspended Jones for the 2007 season, in part because of the incident, but he has appealed.

Las Vegas is interested in landing an NBA franchise, and commissioner David Stern recently said a committee of owners will review the proposal Mayor Oscar Goodman submitted to the league.

"Mr. Stern can keep his basketball franchises out of Las Vegas as far as I'm concerned," Lanni said.

Lanni later backed away from those comments, with MGM Mirage spokesman Alan Feldman saying his complaints "only meant to refer to the All-Star Game."

Clark County Commissioner Rory Reid, who worked with Goodman on the proposal, said Lanni made his concerns abundantly clear even before the pitch was sent to Stern last month.

"Frankly, it's a concern if a company like that has concerns on that scale," Reid said. "It's obviously something that we'll have to address if we're going to move forward."

He also said he and the mayor tried to reassure Lanni that having a team based in Las Vegas might not cause the same trouble as a single, high-profile event.

"That was one game on one weekend," Reid said. "If there were 41 games here, it may be different, but I don't know."

Goodman said having a team cheered on by local fans would be vastly different from the rowdy tourist spectacle that the All-Star weekend became.

"There's a big difference between out-of-towners coming to Las Vegas to party and locals going to a ball game," he said. "The crowd that was disruptive is different from loyal Las Vegas fans who back their home team."

"Gang-Bangers"?

Gang Bangers Now Days Aint Got That Type Of Money To Hit Vega and Ball Out On A All-Star WeekEnd Now.Those Prices Were Crazy,So What Gang Banger In They Right Mind Going Spend They Life Saving Like That?

Las Vegas Got A fu*ked Up Mindset Putting The Word "Gang-Banger" Out There Just To Phrase Black People Now.

Alot Cats That Were Up There Were Hollywood Flashy n*ggas That Was Acting Hard Infront Of Uncomfortable White People To Impress But Aint No Credit Towards Anyhood.

If Vegas Trippin On Here...Wait For f!ght Nite Tomorrow....HA!

gangbangers isnt a subliminial term for black people...but most people fail to realize that and they insist on it being a term for black people. wake the fu*k up everything doesnt revolve around people being racists...u can be any color and be a "gangbanger"..every comment made doesnt have to be racist how about we all need to stop thinking on our one track minds...every1 wants to believe that every white person is racist or every person of color is a gangbanger when in fact thats not correct at all...untill we change this sh*ts not gonna change...and its our own fault for jumping to conclusions...but hes right though...there was alot more arrests n shooting in LV during that period of time....

if you think he meant black people with 'gang bangers', you're probably just as racist as him if that was what he meant. and if we a.ssume that, let's just take away all the black gang bangers from those games. then, we've only got the CAUCASIAN gangbangers, the HISPANIC gangbangers, the RUSSIAN gangbangers, the EUROPEAN gangbangers, the ASIAN gangbangers, and " that's perfectly ok because no non-black person in the history of the world including the contemporary EVER joined a gang and brought their bullsh*t to a ball game. right?"

dude just fu*kin grow up. I do think that they are many caucasian racists in your country but they are also many BLACK racists, many HISPANIC racists, many ASIAN racists, many RUSSIAN racists and many EUROPEAN racists.

see my point?

or people take into account the context by which the terms were used....the NBA is predominately black...in talking about a predominately black enterprise & using the term "gangbanger" it's easy to read into it....IMO....if people are talking about not wanting a NASCAR event, then slips in the term "hillbillies", would you be dumb enough to think they meant anything other than a certain type of white person?

They still talkin bout All Star...that was how long ago?

It was some hood a.ss n*ggaz up there tho, I cant even front. I dunno if the thugs outnumbered the regular cats, but of course ppl are gonna remember the gangstas more than the civilized people. They shouldnt stereotype all the all star crowd as gangstas, but the hood n*ggaz were there.

Looking for the source now...I read the number of arrests didn't rival the number of arrests during New Years Eve....ain't no talk of banning that...quit tryin to over generalize sh*t...he said gangbangers in conjuction w/a predominately black enterprise...if you don't wanna see what he meant that's one thing, but to act like people are interjecting race into this for no reason is bullshiit....& for the record, my dude took his baby mom to the ASG....n*gga said he never saw 1 incedent...& he was on the strip....Vegas officials just tryna have a reason for people to continue to not focus on the gambling & prostitution that built Vegas & still prevades Vegas....
