    Just when you thought maybe they were getting good ownership and might start turning the corner.

    Obama's IRS is going to be jailing a whole lot more people than any IRS we've seen in many many years.

    It's pretty amazing that an organization like the NFL did not see this coming. You would think they would have some of the most well connected people in America, but apparently not quite enough.

    Well, I doubt the FBI & IRS felt obligated to share their investigation with the NFL. On the surface, this looked like a super successful businessman. And he was. Who knew his arrogance and stupidity would put him in this position. I know I probably shouldn't be surprised, but I am. How could someone who has so much risk it all on something like this?

    Remember too that Haslam had been a minority of of the Steelers since 2008. I imagine they did their due diligence before that was approved?

    Really,

    Guess you haven't read about CoGen energy's relationship with Enron and how BoB miraculously managed to sell his stock that he gained from selling his company just before the bottom fell out of Enron?

    I'm not looking down on BoB, I'm just saying anybody that has accumulated the kind of wealth that BoB has without having a few skeletons in their closet.

    A little OT, but fitting to the "More Trouble for the Browns" theme.





    So what's the connection between the Browns & the Patriots? Yup, Bill Belichick.


    I'm telling you, before all this is said & done with we're going to find out that Belichick is the true Kingpin of Foxboro.
