Eventually, Daylin sold the Elliot's Stripe division, so he moved and went to work for Bernie Marcus at the Handy Dan division.

Disaster struck in 1978 when he and Marcus got fired from their jobs and began their store just three years later. 

In the next two decades, he served as the CEO of the Home Sport until his uneventful retirement in 2000, but that did not mean he stopped working altogether.

Instead, he poured his investment into Atlanta Falcons of the NFL and Atlanta United of Major League Soccer.
