    "racketeering, extortion, witness tampering and circumventing the league's salary cap."

    That's fucking priceless.

    i saw that, too. that doesn't make any sense. the salary cap is not a law that you can be charged with breaking.

    So the guy had ties to the mob and spent far beyond the salary cap. What's the big deal here? [/Eddie DeBartolo]

    Prosecutors said Galante paid $30,000 every three months to reputed Genovese crime family boss Matthew "Matty the Horse" Ianniello for mob muscle to maintain his company's dominance.

    Now, there's an enforcer.

    So the UHL is down five teams for next season: Detroit (Fraser), Roanoke, Danbury, Adirondack and Missouri. Two new teams are coming next season, at least as far as I can tell from the Web site.

    Are other sports' minor-league teams as screwed up as hockey?

    The AP story actually includes the phrase "no-show jobs." That's also fucking priceless.
