Jets to NJ was a real estate deal

Let's get some facts straight, Leon Hess traded Monmouth Park to New Jersey in exchange for his Jets t the Meadowlands. That happened in 1983 under Ed Koch. That was part of the USFL-NFL antitrust trial as Leon testified. This column is about monies diverted from public coffers into owners pockets. Dolan can pay Lebron, Melo the equivalent of the city's property tax. Brooklyn can be fitted in med stream just like Toronto did at their arena to house hockey. Leagues can rewrite territorial rights whenever they want. It is a business, that is what sports is.
