wow, this is an absoloutly amazing quote by you, lets start with your statement "Then one day miraculously HV decided to open an outdoor field, and oddly enough the only piece of land they could find bordered Cousins Coram...wow what a coincedence!!", im glad you brought up this point, lets talk realestate. An advanced, 2 bed, 2 bath house with master bedroom, master bath, and a pool, is costing roughly about, 279,900.00$. That same kinda house in Bay Shore costs about 459,990.00$. Now dont get me started with busniess area's, its approxamatley the same, but do notice the 180,090$ difference. Realty in coram is the cheapest on long island, it is also one of the most wooded area's on long island, making it perfect to start an outdoor paint ball field, for at the time being, was not that far from bayshore to start such a field. Reality also alot larger and cheaper for undeveloped area's. So when HiVi started a field in coram, it wasnt becasue cousins is there, it would've been stupid for them to start a field next to a pre existing field with such longivity and reputation to its name. Now that its started, it seems that HiVi has taken the title, but that dosent exclude busniess from cousin. And if it does, its in fair competition, i can see where it takes away, and i can see cousins flaws that they refuse to fix inorder to re-bring back in that busniess.
"Those guys have been playing follow the leader for the past 7 years, and it's never gonna change, anybody who's been around for more than a couple years know it's true.", hmmm, i find that quote really really intresting... considering that hivi has been the treand setters for a few things such as new brands, field setup's, senarios, and alot lot more.
Now why dont you use all them internet muscles and write out a list for me of which you think High Velocity is biting off cousins, and I'll get back to you with more responses, proving you wrong.
Once again, a fabulous try by you.
