    It is this kind of threads that make LOHs hate Lin more and LOFs hate other fans more.

    It's one of the worst troll threads ever. Texas as a whole is the most economically viable state in the Union. The OP and others like him are allowed to make troll threads such as this and get away with it while I'm regulated to hefty punishment for much less if nothing.

    True. It's disappointing.

    Why create threads that are more and more divisive and promote hatred among fans and players?

    I don't see any positives coming out of this for RedNation. :(:(

    I was informed today there would be a massive layoff at my job if Lin is moved and I'll have to work at Whataburger with the rest of y'all Linners.

    I was informed that if Lin leaves, all the oil wells will sprout legs and move to the Pacific. I was told that all restaurants will close too and be bought out and re-named Taco Bell. What do we do?!? The economy is tanking! Only NY is salvation!

    :rolleyes:

    Which is why people don't understand why LoF's don't simply leave. Why stay where you are unwanted? Are they such pieces of crap IRL?

    Please start a thread on this topic in the D&D. I'd really like to see the thoughts of others on this. I disagree with nearly everything you said outside of the housing stuff, and that's because I just don't know enough about the housing market.

    So don't make r****ded posts talking about stuff you clearly have zero knowledge of? Diss the fan base of a city and expect to get ridiculed.

    Then quit posting in it.

    Your cries of how much you don't want to be in here ring hollow when one checks to see how much posting you have done in it.:rolleyes:

    No, stop.

    Do not respond to me.....just leave.

    You people are liars. You guys would be upset if someone made up a thread of a bogus interpretation on you.

    You speak on this with certainty and conviction. Serious question, are you in residential or commerical real estate? I'm an investor in both Houston and the Dallas areas and I don't see the forecasting like this at all. So seriously if you are experienced and successful as a fellow investor in real estate I'd like to know why you actually believe this. Right now inventory is substantially lower than demand (at least the areas I'm invested in). So population is increasing due to employment and there isn't enough inventory on the market to meet demand. I have homes selling 5-10% over asking price with less than a week on market.

    What are you seeing that makes you think the supply outweighs the demand?

    I guess you shouldn't have insinuated that the Houston economy would crash without the Lin effect then, yes?

    And most of you people are taking this thread entirely too seriously. It's pretty hilarious.
