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.
