I've been biting my tongue for a few weeks now but it's finally time to make the call:
0% chance Magic's 'new' quad will carry paying customers in 2020.
50% chance it's done by the time the snow melts in the spring. I actually suspect it may be complete by the end of the season, but won't get load tested, inspected and approved to carry customers until the 2021-2022 season.
If my prediction comes true (again!) they are going to take a MAJOR PR hit from this failure to deliver. They're re-playing the same script from last year - It'll be done by opening day....er.... Christmas....I mean President's Day.....OK, we'll finish it up over the summer. All of the attention and goodwill they have generated with their organized COVID response will be gone, and then some.
2 on, 2 out, bottom of the 9th. Team Magic is down by 2 runs. A walk off homer is required to save the day. I hope I am wrong and they can pull it off.
Hugh do you have any inside info that they have hit a snag?
Given today is Nov 11th and need is for Christmas holiday I'd say they are in the 8th inning and the game is tied. But I am sure Geoff wishes they were prepping for a load test this month.
