Damn haven't realized he been on here for 10 years bashing Blockbuster employees. Anyone spending that much time doing that should realize they look like more of an idiot then anyone their bashing.

Actually, anyone who knows me on this site and from my posts, I far from defend everything blockbuster does, and am smart enough to know the bad and good decisions. On the other hand, you have been here wishing thousands of people unemployed because u were fired many years ago. Maybe you should take a look at your life and make the necessary improvements needed so you are not on a website for 10 years waiting for it to close, like a football fan is waiting for his team to in the superbowl. Just saying.

However, they do have a plan. It has taken longer, much longer, than they first anticipated. They too realize that without change they can't continue to afford to go down this path.

I imagine they will close some more stores after the 4th quarter. These will mostly be the larger stores where monthly costs and montly revenue simply doesn't add up with one another and as the lease expires, so will that store. And without a change, I don't see more than 200-300 stores left another year and a half from now.

With that said, Dish has not given up on their plan. If you read beyond the one-sided front page articles you see in Google News you may start to find this information. I think the quarterly conference calls after earnings, the information they share with investors and share holders, is the more telling information.

And despite what a couple current employees, who by the way don't know their ass from their head, have said, they are not opening new stores. Do they have a designed ideal footprint for future stores? Absolutely, and if their long term plans ever take form, it is quite likely they will begin opening new stores.

Until a decision is made by the FCC, who has promised a decision by the end of the year, and until they can identify a partner to help build out a wireless network which they can market to their current customers and beyond, nobody knows what will happen. If the FCC doesn't approve their desired use for the wireless spectrum, we all know what will happen. If they can't identify and form a partnership with an existing mobile company, we all know what will happen.

But I am not an idiot. Right now, I believe my current position with this company is best for me. With the economy and unemployment the way it is, there isn't a lot of opportunities out there and the ones that are aren't really any better than where I am out now, in my opinion.

So in summary, yes Blockbuster is dying. It has been for years but it isn't dead. Dish does have a plan, but it may never happen, and not by choice but by circumstances. They have done some very good things in stores and at the corporate level. They still have a long way to go. Will they ever get there? Nobody knows for sure but the next year or so will certainly tell us all what we want to know. And we all know what most of you hope will be the end result but I am sure you'll let me know again in response to my post.
Opportunities are indeed out there. You just have to actually make a real effort to get motivated and look ... not just keep telling yourself this line.

I have defended blockbuster, just as much as I have spoke negativity on the things they have done wrong. At the end of the day im not the loser "idiot", who is sitting on a website wishing thousands out of work and hoping a company closes. IF you weren't fired, then why do you have so much hatred towards the place after so many years? Most people on this board has been screwed one way or another working for them.
