Are you confused by all of this Madoff – Wilpon – Mets stuff?
Fret not, James K. of Amazin Avenue, posted a fantastic time-line beginning with the initial news that Bernie Madoff had been charged by the SEC for running a Ponzi scheme back on December 11, 2008, and taking you through all of the key moments culminating with the latest news of the unsealed lawsuit seeking $1 billion dollars from the Wilpons.
He obviously spent a lot of time piecing all of it together, and it’s definitely worth a read for those of you who want to get caught up, so go check it out. Good stuff.
Included in his post was a video of Mets Vice President Dave Howard, who denied that the Wilpons would have to sell part or all of the team. Actually, that’s putting it very mildly – Howard went ballistic on author Erin Arvedlund and had no problem calling her grossly irresponsible. There’s a short ad in the beginning of the video, but hang in there, you won’t want to miss this.
I remember watching this video the same night it took place and thinking that Erin Arvedlund was just out to make a buck. Boy, was I wrong…
I wonder if any reporter has since asked Howard to revisit his comments and if he wanted to retract them?
