    Here's another MMA troublemaker, or is this a Bergeron story? - either way, I do not think this constitutes "proof," or does it?
    Like Steve Wynn was apt to say - "Vegas casino pioneers were not mobsters, they were "only friends" of mobsters."

    --------
    Proof: Fertitta Family is 100 yr. old Mafia Family

    Frank Fertitta II, Frank & Lorenzo's father was founder & former chairman of Station Casinos. Federal investigations linked him to a mob money-skimming operation in 1985 when he was caught on an FBI wire tap stating so, though he was never charged or sanctioned.

    Nonetheless, Missouri gaming officials in 1992 refused to issue a gambling permit to Station unless the company guaranteed Fertitta would have no
    part in its management, according to published reports. This is when Frank III took over the business reigns from his father.

    Both Frank III & Lorenzo were working for the family business during the time that their father was caught on FBI wire-taps implicating himself in the illegal skimming operation at the Fremont Hotel/Casino working together with known organized crime members. The FBI wire-tap transcripts were released to the media. This caused a lot of controversy in Las Vegas and the media there reported closely on it.

    It was well known by longtime Las Vegas residents that the Fertitta family was involved in organized crime. ...

    So given the amount of good works that the Feritta family, Frank Jr and his boys Frank and Lorenzo,
    have done for Vegas over the decades, shouldn't we cut them the benefit of doubt? zg

Yet, they have never asked me to correct anything they feel is misleading or false on any of my sites.
    So what are your basic allegations against Fertittas vis-a-vis Xyience? Is Xycience still a Fertitta company?
    Rich, wasn't it you who referred to UFC as the "Enron of MMA"?

    Sorry ZG, I still think that Frank II, Frank III, Lorenzo, UFC, Stations, Xyience ... they all need their Wikipedia entries updated.

However, the responding officer died of a heart attack in 1995 and no tox screen was ever done.
    Rich, we need an update on this. Are you still with us?

    It's a farm-league division of the Justice League of America ...

    JLN's Mission -

    Justice League of Nevada is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that was founded as the Nevada Law Foundation in 1983 to address the significant need for funding of legal services to the poor and legally disadvantaged in Nevada.

We do this by generating financial resources and investing those resources in programs that employ public interest attorneys to provide representation and legal advice to low income and at risk members of our Nevada communities as well as programs that strengthen knowledge about, and access to, equal justice across our state.
    I am now a HERO of the JLN, simply by telling y'all about it -

    Krieger has a nice smile. I think I'd buy a used car from him.

    I think I did. Looks like the same guy who sold me my Toyota. Nice car, though.

    Default Key Points & New Carl Thomas Story

    Zengrifter, I feel the need to correct your earlier comment about me claiming the UFC was "The Enron of MMA." I never made that assumption at all. It is Xyience itself and the forced bankruptcy of Xyience that I referred to as "The Enron of MMA." The Fertittas purposely propped up Xyience in order to meet the covenants of a huge "Senior Secured Credit Facility" that kept the UFC afloat and allowed the Fertittas and Dana White to collect huge dividends. That financing required the UFC to have strong sponsorships, which is why even through the Xyience BK process the Fertittas pulled all the strings to keep the sponsorship going. They did this while at the same time laying off dozens of employees at Xyience just before the holiday season. They also stiffed a bunch of fighters, though I've heard reports that the UFC covered this up and paid off the biggest names on the list of those who were left out in the cold. It's obviously not nearly on the same scale as Enron was, but a lot of the corrupt behavior was just as shady and underhanded, including the Fertitta right hand man Bill Bullard refusing to hand over emails to the bankruptcy trustee and then claiming the servers crashed. Sounds like the IRS scandal, I know.

    Also, I finally put out a new blog on xyiencesucks.com about the Carl Thomas crash in 1993 that was all too convenient for the Fertitta "family" business.

    Thanks for the clarification, Rich.
    It was about the time of Carl Thomas' death that reporter Ned Day also died under mysterious accidental' circumstance, as I recall.
