NetsDaily: happy to have anonymous readers sling nastiness at Goldstein, but no opportunity to weigh in on Yormark's controversy (updated with change)
Atlantic Yards Report
NutsDaily is at it again.
The website NetsDaily, popular with team fans, team brass, and some sportswriters, earlier this year was questioned by a reader for including the seemingly tangential news that Nets Board of Directors Chairman Christophe Charlier was sending singer (and prep school classmate) John Forte on a Russian tour, helping him rebuild his life after prison.
"read the banner…most comprehensive," wrote the main contributor to the site, who goes by the name Net Income, pointing the commenter to the banner: "The most comprehensive source for news about the New Jersey Nets."
NetIncome was eager to link earlier this week to an unflattering and thinly-reported article in the Daily News about Atlantic Yards foe Daniel Goldstein, but not, of course, to any of the follow-ups that cast doubt on the original story.
NetIncome has claimed "I have won Four Edward R. Murrow awards in my professional life so I have some credibility." Thing is, he's done so while using his name. The blog pseudonym lets him avoid responsibility.
NoLandGrab: Only four? He's more deserving of a bunch of these.
Bergen Record, Lawsuit against Nets exec thrown out
Looks like Yormarketing Genius has raised his game to a new level.
A judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit brought against Nets CEO Brett Yormark by an ex-girlfriend who alleged that he fraudulently induced her to have an abortion.
Reyna Purcell of Upper Saddle River said in a lawsuit filed earlier this year that she became pregnant shortly after she started dating Yormark in October 2010.
Purcell said that she wanted to have a child, but that Yormark told her he would end the relationship if she gave birth. She also alleged that Yormark promised to stay in a relationship if she got an abortion.
Purcell, 34, got an abortion in February, but “shortly thereafter [Yormark] immediately terminated the relationship with the plaintiff and has never spoken to her again,” the lawsuit alleged.
NoLandGrab: We feel awful for Ms. Purcell, but really, she's probably the only person surprised at the way her relationship with Yormark played out.
