Guess they'll just lose even more money :-) cause all the smokers who bought electric cigarettes will just stay home and smoke the real thing since the electric one is going to be useless. So all those people will not pay the gate fee to get into the game, and we won't be buying your over priced drinks, hot dogs, or T-shirts, hats , ect...
Guess we should really thank those who have ban smoking look how much money we don't spend going out to restaurants after all if we went we'd probablely buy a desert we don't really won't or need, or a beer or mix drink(s). Not to mention the gas we save by eating at home. So please go on ban all types of smoking every where and when places go out of business cause they aren't selling enough. Don't blame the smokers. As a matter of fact our property taxes shouldnt be raised or used to pay for things we are not welcome to use. After all being addicted to nicotine is as bad as any other drug as far as quitting goes. Are you going to drug test everyone before they are allowed to enter? Thought not, a little descrimanting if you ask me. Smokers who are trying to quit by using electric cigarettes and cigars are being punished for trying to do what all those stick up the a** people want them to do. WTF damned if we smoke, damned if we try to quit. So what's the deal we can do anything we want as long as you don't have to see it?(cause you can't SMELL water vapor an water vapor isn't going to give you cancer) And DON'T you dare say "I don't want my children to see someone smoking , they may want to try it and get hooked" Do they go out and try to be prostitutes? Or try to hire one? Do they try to jump a train with their car? Are you worried they may try? NO ? Hum but they see someone do all that almost everyday on TV and video games. Ive had a mom look at me like I had 3 heads because I wouldn't let my kids watch a show on TV . She said her kid loves the show. Should have seen her face when I ask have YOU ever seen it and then started to tell her about the sex , cursing, cheating
, and lieing that the show provided for her child's attention . Think I'd rather my kids see me smoke. Whole lot easier to explain I made a mistake now I'm hooked than to explain that what they see on TV isn't really real TV .

I know folks that smoke e-cigs at home, because they prefer it. So the e-cigs won't really become useless.

So, you'll never go out to sporting events or restaurants again if they don't let you smoke there? Sounds like your life will be pretty dull. You're hurting yourself more than you are hurting them.

Unfortunately, kids imitate the adults around them, so your kids will probably smoke, too. Do you really want that?

Looks like their priorities would be drugs, drug dealers, stealing, bullying, drinking, murders. Not cigarette smoking.
