        No no. This is a crazy deal. It’s not only matching the SPX returns, it’s a tax deferred plan. In a personal account, you would be paying taxes on turnover + dividends.

                  Why would the Mets propose this deferred money deal? Mets will be the Mets . Losers

                    Because there were investing with Bernie Madoff and thought they were making a much higher interest rate on their money.
