    I like the K-Whopper city unit. I bet they're better than the Freightshakers.

    I don't think they will sell Southeastern but who really knows? Cash is king.

    That's what I was always told. With a new administration that's favorable to these who knows.

    You never know, they might be like XPO looking for a LTL carrier to swallow up. They better put up a lot of money though! Tobin don't seem to have the time or energy to run this company and leaving it to the two under him to do it for him.

    Like the million dollar man back in the old WWF wrestling days use to say "everybody's got a price"

    If trends tell us anything, it's usually the third generation to sell or bankrupt inherited companies.

    If you're implying his children, there's only one. His son passed away a few years ago.

    It wouldn't suprise me at all if sefl sold out, everyone has a price and I'm sure JB Hunt has very deep pockets.

    Not referring to his kids. The VP and the one below him is who I'm talking about.

    Hopefully a huge change in management will come if sefl ever gets bought out...starting with out terminal manager.

    Wishful thinking I guess.

    I don't think the Owners will sell as long as he who began the company is still majority stake holder
