"A judge on Monday found Zygmunt "Zygi" Wilf, his brother and cousin had committed fraud, breach of contract and fiduciary duty, and had violated New Jersey's civil racketeering law."... Isn't this enough to stop the taxpayer funded stadium?

What a surprise (not). This is how the 1%'rs roll - rip off people. It gets old fighting these types all the time. Vikings stadium, same deal.

Now what does the NFL do about the suitability of owners who have been found guilty of fraud and racketeering? The NFL brand is in a nose dive with the arrests of players and now an owner found guilty of felonies. Nice the youth of the world today have such highly regarded idols to look up to and try to emulate. Sad...thanks for the Petersons, Birks and Mauers of the elite pros who still have a class approach to being a public image for our youth.

...and yet "our" elected officials pose and smile and tell us what a good deal an unfunded stadium is...stop the corporate welfare, let the product stand on its own, no corporate welfare...

Now, you have to wonder what you could do with the past adminstrations of Detroit and now, Chicago for cheating people out of their retirements.

The idiot fan base couldn't care less as long as they get to watch football. What a disgusting joke. These guys screwed people over for 2 decades and put off payment as long as possible, all the while getting the stupid taxpayers of Minny to support their bloated project that will net us nothing, but net them BILLIONS. Way to go Minnesota! We truly have dumbed down our culture to the point of no return.

Everybody knew that Zygy fleeced Minneapolis with the stadium, except of course a blind Mayor Ryback. This slime also knew about the shakey financing deal nevertheless he committed the taxpayer to foot the bill.
