Hoping they show him on the jumbotron at a playoff game and he gets a chorus of boos from 40-some thousand fans.

I just don't understand why he can't keep his mouth shut until the season is over.

Is he actually this stupid?

What is the benefit of doing this now?

There's a surprising number of people who grew up around the public spotlight, and have PR people giving them advice on what to say/not say, who simply can't help themselves and blurt out whatever dumb thought crosses their mind. Politicians, business owners, executive officers, team owners, etc.

Yes, and he's obviously one of those people who has never had to be accountable for his words or actions and has no idea how out of touch with the real world he really is.

I can't click through. Can anyone share some quotes? The headline is not a good look. 

I can't read it either before the Sun's blocker kicks in.  But I suspect there's no new quotes but just integrating the recent Forbes team valuation into the context of the ongoing tomfoolery that is Angelos.

I'd love to see some of the Forbes breakdown though.

Anyone with a PC can read the article. Just right click in the body of the article, choose "inspect", click on settings (may have to click on three horizontal dots in order to get menu that includes "settings"), then disable javascript. May need to refresh page.

I get that but this doesn't look like random dumb thoughts.  This looks like some really bad plan of action.

Yup...part of the "negotiations" with the Stadium Authority (or whatever entity is involved) in beefing up the Camden Yards area and letting Angelos profit from it.
