Because when Magic Johnson and Mark Walter say things about the team, they aren’t always truthful:
Neither Johnson nor Mark Walter, the Dodgers’ chairman, attended the meeting as promised. That left Kasten to answer for the comments Johnson and Walter made at last week’s news conference, when they pointedly said McCourt would make no money from the Dodgers beyond any future development of the stadium property.
“I regret we left that impression,” Kasten said.
He regrets it because it was totally and 100% wrong.
Look, this is a minor little business thing that 99.9% of the fans won’t give a rip about. But hopefully the new owners will learn quickly that candor will do wonders for them. And, if the fans don’t trust you, they’re not gonna give the product you put on the field the benefit of the doubt.
