Adding to what is already an extremely confusing and complex situation, Jerry Moyes has fired shots at the city of Glendale in court documents released on Friday.
"Glendale does not care about other creditors; instead, Glendale desperately wants the team to stay in Glendale, regardless of its financial condition, regardless of its repeated losses, regardless of the increasing debt, and regardless of who picks up th tab (so long as it is not the City)."
James Mirtle has some good analysis of what Moyes might be after with all of this shady maneuvering.
One other issue Moyes's lawyers address is Glendale's claim that the debtors were the reason Jerry Reinsdorf dropped out of the mix. In a bit of a twist, the filing argues that it is the city, in fact, that is the reason Reinsdorf left the table.
Consider that it was one of Moyes's lawyers who (allegedly) accidentally revealed information regarding what "occurred in Glendale's negotiations with the Reinsdorf group," revelations that the city argues caused him to withdraw his bid. Now Moyes's camp wants the city to unveil more information as a way of proving they were the ones who caused Reinsdorf to walk?
I hope that someone can make sense out of all of this, because I get a headache as soon I even start to try. Good thing Mirtle is all over the situation at his blog.
