That’s the way the mafia does business.December 28, 2010 at 6:18 pm #107849
Fucking rich businessmen making a killing off of fucking people over! What a grimey tactic.December 28, 2010 at 7:26 pm #107854
Not to defend Lorenzo but……how do we really know who’s telling the truth. I tend to believe NOBODY 100%. They both had motives.December 28, 2010 at 10:02 pm #107864
stupid.December 28, 2010 at 11:15 pm #107865
Does anyone really think that the UFC was better off pre-Zuffa? No. Then I guess it all worked out okay in the end.December 29, 2010 at 1:55 am #107867
Good for Lorenzo and co. I’m glad these assholes took over the UFC.December 29, 2010 at 1:59 am #107869
pre-zuffa ufc was terrible. i cant really come up with an analogy except for pre zuffa ufc is like the dark ages… shitty and full of plague.December 29, 2010 at 2:37 pm #107888
here we have a former 4 year member of the NSAC, a state agency whose members are appointed by the governor, using his state granted powers to kill sanctioning of a private enterprise in order to make a power play that would enable him to take control of the ufc.
a guy, who along with another former NSAC member (marc ratner) turned zuffa employee, who claim they have no ties to or influence over the nsac, a commission plagued with judging and refereeing scandal
a guy whos family made a billion dollars turning their illegal mafia run gambling enterprises into a somewhat legitimate casino empire. an empire that he eventually bankrupted, leaving the shareholders holding the bag while he pays himself $20mil a year.
a guy, known as frankie three sticks, who got busted for his xzience scam, and is currently being investigated and sued for using his influence to kill chance of any other bid to take over his bankrupted casino empire.
but hey, that TUF show is something else, aint it.December 29, 2010 at 3:02 pm #107889
^^ There are no shareholders in Station Casinos, the Fertitta brothers and their sister and her husband own it entirely.
And pretty much any casino company in Vegas that existed pre-1980s was at least partially tied to the mob. So what’s your point?
While I’m sure they still have a certain amount of influence at the NSAC, I’m curious what you mean by the “judging and refereeing scandal” comment… are you implying the UFC fixes fights?December 29, 2010 at 3:15 pm #107891
no one or two people own 11 casinos entirely. there are investors, bondholders, lenders, etc. true i couldve used a better term than “shareholders”. but you are sadly mistaken if you think a guy and his wife own 11 casinos independently.December 29, 2010 at 4:26 pm #107892
Pardon me, the Fertitta family owns 25% while an investment firm called Colony Capital owns the rest.
Regardless, even if Station Casinos tanks, it’s not like he pulled some kind of scam on the investment firm. Paying the executives big bucks whether the company sinks or swims is par for the course these days.December 30, 2010 at 12:52 am #107956
i think volds is just mentally retarded.December 30, 2010 at 1:00 am #107962
You think? Isn’t it obvious that he IS. Maybe you’re the retardDecember 30, 2010 at 1:16 am #107969
phoenix, its good to see you following me around on another thread. hopefully you learn something from it, so that one day you might have an original thought and actually contribute something worth reading. until then i think ill just ignore you, depriving you of the attention you seem to desperately need from me.
