    Cubans bid not enough

    This really sucks and i dont know how SI could know this since the bids are closed. But apparently Cuban didnt have a high enough bid anyways. Which i think is a load of crap to try to draw away from the fact that Selig wouldnt let him buy them.

    I would say this is the least of his worries right now.

    Oh, you mean that $1-$3M fine? I'm sure he's quaking in his boots!

    No, I think the possibility of facing an indictment and a prison sentence is a big deal to Cuban.

    No it's probably the fact that he's been interviewed already, and like Martha Stewart if he lied, he's going to the boom boom room. If he didn't lie to authorities yes it's just a fine. But if he did, it's obstruction of justice, and lying to the fed, that's boom boom in his boom boom time, in the big house.

    That won't happen, IMO.

    He didn't try to hide it like Martha did, and she committed perjury.

    The SEC will handle it, nothing more then a large fine.

    Its only a civil suit now but it could certainly turn into a criminal suit if the SEC finds out he lied.

    Yea read the whole thread. At the present time that's all he's facing. Much like Martha Stewart at the start. Just a fine. Then the fed stepped in and said you lied ot us, and that's obstruction of justice. That's prison time. That very well could happen here.

    well being interviewed means nothing on obstruction of justice charges. He has to have been under oath for it to get to that level. I have no idea of federal officers have required him to sign a sworn statement or anything like that.

    I doubt we would know unless criminal charges are filed.

    Why would he lie though? It's a $1M-$3M fine, I don't think he'd risk going to jail over that. It'd be WAY too stupid, he's a billionaire, that's nothing to him.

    Granted, money makes people do weird things.
