David Samson Brags About Screwing Taxpayers in Survivor Bio

Categories: Sports

samsonsurvivor.jpg
It's hard to outdouche Justin Bieber on a day like today, but, damn it, Marlins President David Samson is certainly going to give it his best shot. The guy who took off in the middle of the season to go film some silly reality show, proves himself to be an A-class asshole in his official bio for Survivor.

When asked what his "personal claim to fame" was, he replied, "Got local government in Miami to contribute over 350 million dollars to a new baseball park during the recession."

It's like not only does he know he's a total asshole, but he's proud of it.

To put that in perspective, the man was president of team when they won the 2003 World Series. And yet, he's more proud of the fact that he screwed over taxpayers than he is leading a team to the summit.

This is how the Miami Marlins work: the team leadership is more proud about making money for themselves then they are actually winning on the field.

Samson also says that one of his strengths is "leading without actually being a leader."

You can also watch Samson's official cast video here, but BE WARNED: there's several Samson nip slips.

We are--We voted/paid for a colossal stadium that made zero financial sense for the city. Don't complaint after the fact especially if you did nothing about it beforehand people!!

I think he's going to do really well on Survivor, which is a game about getting rid of the people who might be good enough to win the game. Who is better than that than the Marlins?

Why don't we stop giving money to the govt and just contribute where each of us wants to; govt screws tax payers everyday.

I hope he gets a painful bite in the buttock by an exotic snake. Thanks for screwing Miami- we all knew your ballpark pitch was a scam.

The marlins organization is run by shady businessmen. There is absolutely nothing admirable about a person who assisted an organization in using everyone's money to pay for a stadium no one needed, for a team that sucks. Fuck the marlins, fuck Samson, and a special fuck you to Jeffery loria. Your oblivious attitude towards the needs of community over your own personal financial gain is something only an aspiring douchebag could dream of achieving.

a few years ago when it was announce, that government in Miami was spending this much money on this Stadium for this guy, a good friend, I respect in lots of topics, retired teacher, lived in Miami all of her life, was sad and upset.

She say; I can't believe this is happening, no wonder crimes in poor neighborhood is getting higher, they need to put that money in to fixing schools, and help the community bring the quality of education higher.

I'm wondering how she would feel reading this. Is becoming normal and accepted in this country, that our government does anything , get away with it, This guy is basically telling Miami residents they are all idiots, this was like taking candy from a baby, and people still pay to see the Marlins, I wouldn't unless he was fire

Don't Blame him. Don't Blame the politicians. Blame yourselves, the voters of Miami-Dade County, who keep on voting for the same type of candidates.

actually, his claim to fame is that even with a new park, new logo and new players, they still sucked and that's when I started hearing his name for the first time.

Every year, millions of taxpayer dollars are poured into stadiums, 
hockey rinks, baseball parks, and other arenas in order to attract and retain 
professional sports teams in big cities.  Often the money is spent by 
the cities after a team "threatens" to leave the city.When that happens, of course, the local news media act as the willing accomplices of the billionaires who own the teams.When city and state governments build facilities for sports organizations which are owned by billionaires, and raise taxes as a result, it is clearly an abuse of power the infrastructure Is falling apart and the schools are in decline with overcrowding and not enough quality teachers no after school programs no firemen,  no policemen, no health programs for the poor. also the cites  are always going to be in debt. this thing do make money.

it time for more recalls /jail time

Welcome to the American dream--
a billionaire using public funds
to construct
a private playground
for the rich and powerful.

yes he is a douchebag, but the fact is he didn't screw the ppl, the politicians did! thats the fact. No one in that committee had the common sense to take a good look at the contract/ agreement with the Marlins and flat out said" we ( the citizens of miami/ dade county)  are getting it raw-dogged w/o lube.

What a brilliant idea!  Then, we can just give up police and fire protection, decent roads and bridges, and that big f****** military that I'm sure gives you a hard-on.
