Beating on Barclays

Trying to revive a dead horse for another beating, the Daily News' Michael O'Keefe goes after the Nets deal with Barclays Bank in today's paper. It appears that erstwhile Nets supporter and former assembly-felon Roger Green feels that the milions of dollars that the bank has pledged to the sports community is "inadequate." Really?

Let's not kid ourselves all of this blather is nothing more than a simple Jerry McGuire moment from those who see the possibility of more Jeffersons hitting the borough's pavements.. As Green told the News, "I think activists and elected officials need to present Forest City Ratner and Barclays with an agenda..." How's this for an agenda: Get a real job Roger.
