    Blood Covenant: The Story of the "Mafia Prince" Who Publicly Quit the Mob and Lived

    ---
    In this clip, Michael Franzese opens up about gambling and betting being tied in with the mob, and he explained that in the 1970s and 80s he was dealing with pro athletes and team employees across the country. Michael added that they would run up big debts in the hundreds of thousands, which would lead to him approaching them to pay off the debt. When they couldn't, they would be threatened with the option of shaving points or being hurt. He also explained how referees were in on manipulating games, which you can hear more about above.

    Michael Franzese is a Trump supporter. Now I know a lot of evangelicals have been conned by Trump, but as a former New York gangster, he should have heard about Donald Trump's connections to organized crime. Look up Felix Sater and Joseph Weichselbaum.

    I could listen to him talk for hours and not get tired of it. The other night while watching Goodfellas, I noticed for the first time that Mr. Franzese makes a very brief appearance (he's introduced as Mikey, right before Jimmy Two Times). It was definitely one of those "holy shit" moments for me.

    Italians are so tough to the African American and white community but little do they know these guys feared the Puerto Rican’s during the herion era . They’re lucky the Mexicans weren’t big into the herion back in those days because I can almost bet my life on it that my cousins could’ve took over everything the Italians had . You guys praise Italians so hard .
