It's Official: Florida Marlins Screwed Miami-Dade Taxpayers

Florida Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria and team president Dave Samson have been exposed for the treacherous, no good, low down, lying dogs they are. Sports blog Deadspin got a hold of the Marlins' financial information which shows the team turned a profit the last two years and that the team could have financed construction of its own stadium at the old Orange Bowl site.

Reading the documents makes me so ill that I can't wait to see County Manager George Burgess and Mayor Carlos Alvarez, the chief architects of the boondoggle, hit the road in 2012. Thanks again guys for letting Loria and Samson stick it up the collective asses of every Miami-Dade taxpayer. Bunch of chumps!
