czetie: Not sure what the Fail is supposed to be here. It's a fairly commonplace promotion, and I'd bet your mortgage that the store had insurance against Seattle winning.
Watubi: SilentStrider: what a dumbass.It seems a lot of people here need to take a marketing class or two. And, it's plainly obvious this company can afford 7mil and probably spends double that on advertising every year.
Mikey1969: czetie: Not sure what the Fail is supposed to be here. It's a fairly commonplace promotion, and I'd bet your mortgage that the store had insurance against Seattle winning.Yeah, not sure about the "Fail", either. Even if the guy DIDN'T get insurance, he just got a ton of free advertising based on his "goodwill" and "sportsmanship". Besides, it sounds like the place has been around forever, he's not going out of business. Yeah, 7 mil is a lot of money, but something this big pays off for years and years, and ends up getting you over 1,000 return customers who will tell everyone they can think of.
SilentStrider: scottydoesntknow: He responded to a guy on twitter and said he did not have insurance for this event either.https://twitter.com/MattressMackwhat a dumbass.

proteus_b: lennavan: as long as you can weather the bad yearswell not everyone has 7 or more million dollars in liquid cash that they won't need. So it's possible that he'd need to unload other assets at a loss. Insurance isn't always a losing proposition. If you can't weather gigantic fluctuations in your cash flow, and most people and businesses can't, then you need insurance.
