  • Could Cora be on the chopping block?

    Felger: Fire the manager? 

    Mazz: I think it’s in play. I don’t know that, but I think it’s in play. And it’s not because I blame the manager, I just think this thing is hopeless. I do. I think it’s coming apart either way. One way or another whether it’s now or in three months……..I said this at the beginning of the year: if it goes bad, I think the whole thing gets blown out. They all get blown out. And so that’s the only reason I say with Cora, what difference does it make if you fire him now or fire him in three months? The whole thing is going to explode. 

    Felger: So fire him now and maybe you get a spark? 

    Mazz: Maybe. Because I think if this thing doesn’t turn, and I don’t think it’s going to turn, I think Chaim Bloom’s gone too.
