Met's Owners Thieves Partners With Madoff?

Filed under: Super SeniorsZportzLegal MattersFitnessBaseball

Mets Owners Accused Profiting Off Madoff's Scheme

Good news for Yankee fans!

Huge Mets fan and even bigger crook, Bernie Madoff, may have shared his secrets and profits with the owners of his favorite team.

Irving Picard, guy in charge of investigating the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme, says the New York Mets baseball team reaped $300 million in profit from the scheme.

In a statement released Friday the Mets owners Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz denied knowing anything about the scheme. They called the lawsuit "strong arm effort" and "flagrant abuse of the trustee's authority."

"The conclusions in the complaint are not supported by the facts. While they may make for good headlines, they are abusive, unfair and untrue. We should not be made victims twice over - the first time by Madoff, and again by the trustee's actions."

Picard's office replied:

"There are thousands of victims of Bernard Madoff's massive Ponzi scheme, Saul Katz is not one of them. Neither is Fred Wilpon. (Wilpon and Katz were among the) largest beneficiaries of Madoff's fraud, reaping hundreds of millions in fictitious profits over Sterling's quarter-century relationship with Madoff."

Hmmmm… even a Mets fan might find that suspicious.

Not to worry, we have a hunch the owners can afford a good lawyer.

ESPN Skewered For Revealing Name Of Rape Accuser

ESPN Skewered For Revealing Name Of Rape Accuser
After revealing the name of the woman who accused New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana of rape, ESPN is being blasted for practicing irresponsible journalism.

John Clune, the woman's attorney who also represented Kobe Bryant’s rape accuser, is irate: "ESPN has now set a dangerous precedent in telling rape victims that this will be their punishment if they attempt to pursue accountability for their celebrity offenders."

He continued:

"Disappointingly, ESPN today chose to publicize the identity of a rape victim on their website, despite the obvious attempt by this woman to protect herself and her children from further unwarranted harassment and abuse in pursuing her only remaining avenue to hold Mr. Santana accountable."

The reason behind the judge’s decision to reveal her name to the public is that it’s wrong to allow a person hide behind anonymity when they make accusations that could ruin people’s lives.

There’s no good way for this case to end up — all we can hope for is that each side is truthful in their case and that a just ruling is made.

Jerry Seinfeld debuted as a commentator at the Mets game on Wednesday night alongside announcer Keith Hernandez and the subject of Lady GaGa came up.

Of course!

Seinfeld said:

"It's fair to say that we're all big fans of Lady GaGa — lame, out-of-it white guys in their mid-50s is her core audience. But I'm very protective of my Met fans. I love my Met fans and I did not like…the finger. It was disrespectful."

He probably just wants some more attention!

Seinfeld Blasts GaGa!

Filed under: ZportzJerry SeinfeldLady GaGa

Almost two weeks after Lady GaGa ended up in his box at the Mets game, Jerry Seinfeld has something to say about the pop star.

In a new interview this week, he said:

"This woman is a jerk. I hate her. I can't believe they put her in my box, which I paid for.

You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we're living in now?

I wish her the best. You take one 'A' off of that and you've got gag."

I don't know what these young people think or how they promote their careers. I'm older, I'm 56. I look at Lady Gaga the way Keith Hernandez watches these kids when they pull the pocket out, they wear the inside-out pocket. … Do you think he understands that? He can't understand that. That's a new game, that's kids.

I'm not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure — you could die of exposure."

Wowsa!

That's a little harsh, don't ya think?!
