5) in the negotiations with City, moved goalpost many times thus exhibiting character, in an effort to extract/extort more out of City taxpayers
6) continued on with horrific draft beer for sale
Cant imagine a worse owner.
Jeffery Loria (sp) the Miami Marlins owner, could take Katz to town. He got a 650 Million dollar stadium, paid for by the tax payers, then gutted the team and sent the best players to the Blue Jays.
