And he wanted to be our latex salesman

If Carl Goldberg ran Roseland Properties the way he runs the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, he would never have made enough money to become chairman of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority.  The latest issue for the debt-plagued state operation is another sweetheart deal for NFL owners: the authority agreed to donate anything they didn’t need for the new stadium to the Giants and Jets – a contribution toward the cost of demolishing the old Giants Stadium.  Now the football teams have contracted with a sports memorabilia dealer to sell the 80,000 seats to collectors at $499 a pair.  The Giants and Jets are also selling the old turf; according to published reports, the same dealer sold $3 million worth of dirt from the old Yankee Stadium last year, and another $800,000 in freeze-dried grass.  While it’s unlikely that everything will sell, Goldberg might have just left $20 million on the table – money that could help with some of the massive debt he’s leaving the new governor.
