Hot take: DeBlasio will be vindicated when Cohen is arrested within a decade.

Now, IIRC Cohen was convicted on some securities' related fraud.

But I'm not sure how that relates to him purchasing the Mets....unless this is like a John Spano situation.

I'm not sure which is worse, the NY Post hardcore complaining that DeBlasio doesn't want the team be sold to a criminal, or Fark's regular greening of the NY Post's hardcore complaining that DeBlasio doesn't want the team being sold to a criminal.

I'm relaying a breakdown that I saw before, so bear with me, but apparently the city can cancel a sale to anyone who was involved in a felony. Cohen wasn't directly charged or convicted, but his company was. Also, the city owning the land and CitiField leasing it gives the city more leverage over the situation.

While all that may or may not be true, the deal will most likely go through and this is just the city looking to get some shiat from Cohen and/or the Mets. Maybe some sort of development rights around CitiField or something like that.

I'm sure they can shake down some other city for a stadium. Nashville is nice in the summer.

DeBlasio just needs to wet his beak, that's all.  Once the FedEx box full of cash arrives, he'll sign off.
