Moldea: ‘No Fewer Than 26 Past and Present NFL Team Owners had Ties to Mafia’

MediaBistro.com reveals that five eBooks have been selected as part of an ongoing series curated for Open Road Integrated Media by NYU Professor of Media Studies Mark Crispin Miller.

Among those titles, Dan E. Moldea’s “Interference”.

Moldea makes some bold claims, including that of an incestuous relationship between NFL owners, the Mob and illegal gambling outfits.

As Moldea summarized on Keith Olbermann’s sports program on ESPN, his book came out in 1989. He alleged that no fewer than 70 NFL games had been fixed, no fewer than 26 past and present NFL team owners had documented ties to illegal gambling or an organized crime syndicate and no fewer than 50 investigations had been killed as a result of a “sweetheart relationship.”

The New York Times, where he had once worked, came after him with a review from sportswriter Gerald Eskanazi that was filled with lies. It crudely misrepresented what his book revealed about the NFL and what it did not reveal. The review ultimately played a role in his paperback deal being canceled, bookstores refusing to display the book and copies of the book being returned to the publisher, according to Miller.
