re: wynn horror story

to vegasdragon, the name "Wynn" isn't used in the sense that they want you to win, it is the name of the own and founder of not only the Wynn/ Encore but half of the Vegas casinos you see today. His name is Steven Wynn, and he is the one who built The Mirage, The Wynn/Encore, The Bellagio, Treasure Island, The Mandalay Bay, and City Center. He is the most well know casino owner in the country and has changed the face of Las Vegas.

he and his ex-wife also are responsible for destroying the dynasty that once was UNLV basketball in the early 90's.

I despise the man.

What did Wynn do to UNLV? I thought Tark got caught cheating?

Did Wynn tell on him?

Tark was awarded $2.5 million by the NCAA, you can find all of the details with a simple google search.

in the end Tark resigned he was forced out of UNLV by then president Bob Maxon and former AD Dennis Finfrock with the help of big money booster Steve Wynn.

I am a bit (or maybe a lot) confused. What is this about?

Then again, does the first time poster want us to really just guess who he really is/was in a previous incarnation?
