Newark Mayor Pens Guest Column Slamming Devils Owner Vanderbeek

The STAR-LEDGER's own editorial board weighed in on the issue over the weekend: "The city made a bad deal under former Mayor Sharpe James, investing huge subsidies to construct the team’s arena, and wound up with much less than expected to show for it." Newark is "responsible for its own mistakes," and it "should have been more careful in its dealing with the Devils." But the "team should be more generous to the city, given the enormous subsidy" (NJ.com, 4/8).
