Comcast Looking To Lure NBA To Virginia Beach?

Comcast-Spectator, The Philadelphia Flyers' parent company led by Ed Snider, appears to be in talks to move an NBA franchise to the Virginia Beach area. As reported by the Virginia-Pilot, an important person from Comcast-Spectator will be presenting plans to build a brand new arena on Tuesday, August 28th.

Why's this matter to us? Well, this is Comcast-Spectacor's money we're talking about here.

This deal would quite obviously impact those stockpiles in one way or another.
