ESPN Latest to Skewer Wilpons

In case you missed ESPN’s Outside the Lines story on the Wilpons…


I guess because Larry King is vouching for his old friend we should believe our owners are completely innocent? Unfortunately it’s not that simple.

While I don’t think for a second the Wilpons knowingly began investing in Madoff’s scam it seems awfully hard to believe they didn’t suspect something was wrong. Especially when you consider this was their SECOND ponzi scheme.

2 ponzi schemes and a bunch of people on record warning “Madoff is too good to be true” may be all a jury needs to rule against the filthy rich, no personality Wilpons.

Imagine how a jury of real working men and women will judge Jeff Wilpon if he ever took the stand. The guy just reeks of silver spoon brat.

I don’t really care how this plays out so long as Jeff Wilpon never gains control of this team.

    Damn straight FMFR! I’ve been waiting for what seems like years for Spring Training to start! Did anyone catch the story in Newsday that OP went to the training facility only to find it locked? Hmmm, could the Mets be sending him a message?

    BMF, I agree that the Wilpons didn’t knowingly invest in Madoff’s scam, but you have to admit, if you were investing and kept getting a huge return, would you honestly think something was wrong, irregardless of falling for a Ponzi scheme in the past? Wouldn’t most people turn a blind eye when you’re making huge profits? Greed does strange things to people. I’m not defending the Wilpons, I’m just saying they didn’t do what any other person would have done.

    Regarding this whole mess the only thing I care about,…at the moment…is whether SNY coverage is secured for the season. Right now it seems that it is.
