story of the NY Islanders hockey ownership debacle of the 90s. guy wants to buy the team, supposedly a billionaire, turns out to be a massive scam. pretty compelling story of deceit, arrogance and fraud. i always find this kind of thing interesting. how can people pull of these huge scams and cons, especially these days? i guess it just shows that stupidity is constant and just as constant is man’s desire to cheat.
the direction isn’t great. actor kevin connelly got the gig because he’s a name and is a huge islanders fan. he does get john spano to talk him through some of the whole thing and for that i’m thankful. a lot of times these documentaries about criminals at this level don’t get the actual criminal on record.
