Well I have a few possible reasons, but none will be popular:
1) Most people in the CCGTCC are not familiar with the subjects of the Hard Rock chips and many resent the casino for honoring people who are unfamiliar to them
2) Many people resent the Hard Rock for having to wait in line for their chips
3) Many people just don't like their style
4) A lot of people hate the Hard Rock for being a new casino that is SOOOOO popular.
OK Chuck, those are my opinions. I may be wrong.. Maybe a $1 chip with Halloween colors in the margin is more artistic than the Eminem chip I pointed out in another post. Put them head-to-had and debate it, I think Eminem will win. Offer it to a vote to people who can't name an Eminem album, I think your 4Q Halloween will win.
Chuck - you and Bob and I are hanging tomorrow. Can't wait.
