I'm sorry, but you cannot compare the most evil man in sports (Loria) to Katz in any way, shape or form. This is the guy who singlehandedly destroyed the Montreal Expos, leaving the team with literally nothing when he took his money and ran for Miami after intentionally driving the Expos into the hole by pigeonholing their English TV and Radio contracts. When he left Montreal he took EVERYTHING with him. Including all the front office staff AND equipment (computers, fax machines, desks, EVERYTHING).

Now this insanity in Miami, where he literally forced his way into an arena. If you think Katz was trying to be a bully with council, you should read up on what went down in Miami.
