Again, whether or not he meant that is another debate.
To sum it up Arum never even floated this idea realistically. All concrete foundation work done on the strip in Las Vegas gos through Nevada Ready Mix. I actually got my ass chewed because I said this seemed very real getting the vp of NRM, Richard Thornton, to check into it. It was all bs.
