It was why I made the point I made. So far as I know from what I have read over the years, the Selteab deal was set up by Nat Weiss (his American lawyer), and was nodded through by Brian on his say-so. The second volume of Lewisohn will be interesting to see how he evaluates these deals, and whether he puts the blame wholly on Brian shoulders, or takes my views that Brian made bad mistakes based on the guidance of those he employed to guide him because he trusted them.

Thanks mja - Nat Weiss was who I meant. I think you make a very valid point - did Brian have bad advice? Were there other agendas at work?

If we were to subscribe to this reasoning of yours, it still looks pretty bad on Brian for one of the Manager's biggest responsibilities is to assemble a strong Management Team.  Trusting people as friends shouldn't automatically qualify them as trusted businessmen, and I see this as another one of Brian's faults.  Blaming the Seltaeb deal on anybody else but Brian is weak, in my opinion.  It'd be like a Hockey Goaltender blaming a lousy goal from 50 feet out on his teammates in front of him who's job isn't to stop the puck that trickled between his legs...:-)
