ESPN Los Angeles?[edit]

IS there really going to be a ESPN Zone in Los Angeles? That sounds too close to the existing location at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA. Jonyyeh 18:16, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

It would not surprise me, i don't think it would be that bad of a move. The locations, in terms of LA, would be a fair distance apart. The Anaheim location catchment areas is mostly going to be Orange county, but gets most of it's traffic from the theme park, so i cant see a Downtown LA location really being a drain on this proposed location. Though i would like to see a ref on this proposal. --Boothy443 | trácht ar 07:01, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
Nevermind found several. --Boothy443 | trácht ar 07:03, 16 April 2006 (UTC)
As one who lives in LA, Anaheim is NOT close at all. Having an ESPN Zone in LA and Anaheim will not conflict at all. —Pelladon 17:20, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

I guess they could keep both locations, Disney definitely will keep the Downtown Disney location because it's on Disney property and it's close to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.Jonyyeh 14:57, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Well you have got to figure that Hard Rock had three locations in the LA are up till this year, and that two remaining locations i think are close then what the ESPN locations would be. --Boothy443 | trácht ar 00:57, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Location list vs. WP:NOT[edit]

A couple of anon IPs, whom I believe are working in good faith, have removed the list of former locations from the article. In their edit summaries, they cite WP:NOT, stating that Wikipedia is not a directory. While that is generally correct, at the same time we need to consider whether the presence (or lack) of a list of former locations helps or hurts the article. If it hurts it, it doesn't belong. Similarly, if its absence hurts the article, it needs to be there. In my opinion, we need to keep the list: (a) because it's relatively short and (b) it is part of the history of the organization, and thus is notable. Let's assume the list isn't there for a moment. A first-time reader who has never heard of ESPN Zone may read the article and think "you know, that's a cool concept ... it'd be awesome if they opened up one in New York" and not know that there actually was a location in New York, and why there is no longer a location there (or anywhere else outside of Los Angeles). --McDoobAU93 (talk) 17:01, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Don't think of it too much. From the looks of both IP contributions (65.204.31.2 and 173.70.27.139) - which show the same edits to "Grand_Union_(supermarket)" as well as blanking their entire talk page - they appear to be WP:SOCKs or meat puppets.--UnquestionableTruth-- 20:57, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
