sticks wrote:Very interesting man. Around where i live there has always been this mystique about the genovese-specifically Tony parkside. Something about the fact that all these made guys from around my old neighborhood, the only name that rings out stronger than the rest is tony parkside. Of course hes the least impressive of any wiseguys around the north queens area. He works at his restaurant day and night. No gangster BS, he acts completely legit. Yet no ones name carries more juice than this guy. Theoretically his crews into everything- making book, juice loans, coke deliveries, slot machines, insurance scams... That family is just to insulated to us to know anything.


It actually came out a while back (in one of Capeci's articles, I believe) that Federici was making so much money with his restaurant that he had turned over all his illicit operations to Anthony Romanello.
Also i meant mikey generoso jr., michael sr.s son- hes a brooklyn captain, lives in staten island. I think he took over the antico crew because antico got so much time for killing antonelli.


Ah, I see. I haven't heard or read much on the son.
Another thing, is muscarella under barney?? And if all those guys come from barneys crew, isnt it a little obvious that he chooses the front bosses? Making him really the boss no? A personal theory of mine is that Barney could be a top echelon informant for the fbi. He obviously isnt in the life for the money, if so he coulda retired 25 years ago. He makes as many moves as possible to insulate himself and hes seems smart enough to realize that it is inevitable that a guy like him will be doing life one day. To me it makes sense, but then again, im a #%@&#%@ nut.


Yeah, Muscarella is in Barney's crew. That crew is the most powerful in the family and so it's no surprise that it's often somebody from that crew that steps up to be acting boss. Barney, himself, has always been mentioned as a likely successor to Chin. It was he who Chin put in as acting boss in the early 1990's. But it seems Barney would be smarter than to take the official spot and would rather insulate himself, to a degree, by running things with other top guys in the family. And, for the record, I highly doubt Barney is an informant. He's "Cosa Nostra" through and through and likely wouldn't have spent much of the last decade in prison if he was feeding the feds information.
Whos running tinos old crew?


Mikey Coppola is the official captain now but he's in prison. So the acting captain is believed to be Michael "Tona" Borelli.
Or the paterson crew in north jersey?


I assume you mean the Gatto crew. It hasn't come out yet who took over after Joe Gatto died in 2010.
The genovese have a peice of one of the brooklyn docks, who is running that? Allie shades? The Gallo crew outa carroll gardens?


Traditionally, the Brooklyn and Staten Island docks have been Gambino territory. While the Manhattan and New Jersey docks are Genovese territory. There's been a lot of cases in recent years involving the Genovese and the Jersey waterfront. The last Gambino case on the Brooklyn docks was back in 2002. Anthony "Sonny" Ciccone is the captain of that crew and is due out of prison next year.
Are there stilll rackets run out of the garment district like tommy gambinos? Who would rum that carmine tomatos??


The Gambinos lost their trucking companies in the Garment District after they made a deal with the feds back in the early 1990's to get out of the industry in order to avoid prosecution. A few years later, in the mid-1990's, people from the Gambino, Lucchese, and Genovese families were busted for shaking down local garment firms, under the threat of unionization, but that was the last case that I'm aware of. Sciandra is captain of that crew now and they were busted back in 2009 on charges including bookmaking and bid-rigging involving a multimillion contract from the Sanitation Dept.
I know the luccheses had a peice of the laguardia airport (and jfk if goodfellas is right). Is there any rackets around there still?


Yeah, the Luccheses were the main family at the airports. Though the Gambinos were also at JFK. And all the families looted JFK to some extent. But hijacking trucks was already becoming passe by the 1980's due to new technology. And the indictments in the 1990's seemed to have removed the mob's involvement in the unions and extortion of companies there. In recent years there's been a couple cases of stolen goods out of the airport, where there has been a guy or two with some loose mob connection, but that's about it.
What about the fulton fish market?


You'll recall that back in the 1990's the Giuliani administration instituted new regulations over the garbage industry and wholesale food markets, including the Fulton Fish Market. The Genovese-controlled companies were banned and, of course, the market itself was eventually moved up to the Bronx. It seems the mob still hovers around to a certain extent but doesn't control it like it once did.
Who runs the feast on arthur ave in the bronx?


I'm not sure about that one but it came out just last week in a Genovese indictment that the family was continuing to shake down vendors at San Gennaro; even after officials had declared the feast free of mob involvement.
Thanks in advance its been fun goin back and forth with a guy like you.
In case I haven't mentioned it, you may want to check out the forums below. They're more geared towards the mob and organized crime than this one is and have a lot more traffic. The first one you have to be invited to and they're not taking members right now. But you can sign up for the second one. I go by "Ivy League" over there.

Haha damn your thorough.. :p
A Capeci article, like his gangland? I always was way to cheap to cough up a credit card number for that prick. friend of mine gets it and shows me on his phone from time to time. Romanello does sound familiar though. Was he involved with that club that tony parkside ran on corona ave? My pops used to play cards there but that had to be nearly a decade or so ago. So i take it romanello is the acting?

Yes i meant the gatto crew. I had no idea he had died. Do you know if theres anything left in the city of paterson, i assumed they were spread out through North Bergen and Passiac counties, where theres ton of wiseguys runnin around.

I was under the impression that Gallo and (is it Iliano?-that sounds right) ran the big terminal in red hook. That would seem right because that is genovese territory more than anywhere else. And i know Sonny Ciccone controlled Staten Island but i have heard that Lenny dimara runs the brooklyn navy yard. It would make sense to me, they are two different unions, plus his power comes from Nicky Corozzo. Is Sonny a corozzo guy do you know? But Sonny C does come from the crew that once ran the brooklyn docks. Scotto? Scopo? Does that sound right? I guess you gotta know ur history for that one.

Your right about jfk, gambinos all over there. A close friend of mine from LI got arrested for boostin a truck of Iphones, not to long ago actually.

Yeah i remember all the guiliani BS. IMO he ruined NY, he cleaned it up, he urbanized it, i miss the homeless window wipers, the sex shops, the smack dealers all over the place. Im white and i think that that stop and frisk BS is the most racist, unconstitutional fucked up law iv ever seen. One day theyre gonna arrest a shine with enough money to take that shit to the supreme court and win. And i will laugh my ass off.

Anyways, he moved it to hunts point, where didnt they lucchese take over? I remeber something about lucchese bookies getting caught up in a sting in the paper a while back. Are there any mob influence in garbage any more? Barney has his own garbage co. though right? So does that made guy with the luccheses, one of the Castelluccis/Castille brothers. I figure all that property rights BS is over, butthere must be something still going on, landfill scams?

The Arthur Ave feast is huge, imo its more traditional than san gennaro, go there every year. Gotta get those fucking zeppoles man lol. I always figured the genovese and the lucchese split it in half, since they are the only family with a notable presemce in that nieghborhood. Speaking of which, whatever the fuck ever happened to luie bracciole? Sal Locacio? Funzi? never hear about those guys. What about the bonannos?

How did the horses crew get into san gennaro? I thought Tony Urso had that. Whos running his crew now that Ant Calabrese is inside? Hell, whos runnin the bonannos? TVs inside, Grazianos inside, Calabrese and Nicky Santora are inside. Who stepped up? Or any predictions? Joe Cs kid wants it i know. If he could get past the fact that his father is a homo. Could be Louie Electric. My best guess tho is Jerry Chili, no one certainly wants to fuck with him he has some certainly bad-ass stories circling around. Like bitching out gotti or gravano or somebody like that. Did he knock the shit out of gotti or was that Mike Paradiso? I think Paradiso punched Gravano or something.. fucking hard. I get all these greaseballs confused.. Its really hard for a nearly illiterate jameson drinking irishman like myself lol.

Appreciate telling me about those other sites but to be honest im suprised i even log in once a day to check this thing. Its funny i check my facebook like once a fucking month man. To be honest this is pretty cool having someone with all this info to go back and forth with. But i like lookin at all the yams argueing back and forth about "who b rppin the Pink Houses" and whos "a str8 up thug azz niqqa"... LOL :O Usually i just get with the guys and head down to the bohemian beer garden and talk about who are bookies are with, whats goin on with so and so, etc. while were shit faced. Honestly we're worse gossipers than a bunch of HS girls lol... You live in the city? Youd be welcome to tag along one day, be fun havin an expert amongst us.

I don't pay for it either. It gets posted every Thursday on the Real Deal forum. Excerpts of Capeci's weekly articles, though not the entire thing, are allowed on the Gangstersbb forum.

Romanello was indicted as an "acting captain" back in 2006. In 2010 he was indicted as a full fledged captain, according to articles on the case. It seems there's a good chance he has taken over the crew and Federici just wants to run his restaurant.
Yes i meant the gatto crew. I had no idea he had died. Do you know if theres anything left in the city of paterson, i assumed they were spread out through North Bergen and Passiac counties, where theres ton of wiseguys runnin around.


Back in 2004 there was a huge gambling bust involving Gatto's crew. 43 people were charged and it included ones from the Lucchese and Bonanno families as well. Loansharking, cocaine trafficking, and weapons charges were also involved. That same year, the New Jersey OC report gave a breakdown of the LCN families in the state, including several Genovese crews. The Gatto crew was specifically said to operate in Bergen and Passaic counties.

Yeah, Gallo and Illiano are said to be co-captains of their crew, which is based in Red Hook. But there hasn't been much news on them lately. They're both getting on in years. Gallo is 79 and Illiano is 81.

The 2002 ILA waterfront case, which charged Ciccone, as well as Peter and Richard Gotti, involved Local 1814 in Brooklyn. Also Local 1, which I think is in Staten Island but I'm not sure. Ciccone is a captain over his own crew. It's the same crew that Scotto ran, and Tough Tony before him.

It's possible DiMaria has involvement with the waterfront, though I don't recall anything specific off the top of my head. On the forums it was believed for some time that DiMaria was part of Nicky Corozzo's crew. And he may have been at one time. But DiMaria was indicted as a full captain in 2008 in the big Gambino bust so he may run his own crew now.
Your right about jfk, gambinos all over there. A close friend of mine from LI got arrested for boostin a truck of Iphones, not to long ago actually.
His name wouldn't be John Micali, would it?
Anyways, he moved it to hunts point, where didnt they lucchese take over? I remeber something about lucchese bookies getting caught up in a sting in the paper a while back.
That was a joint Genovese-Lucchese bookmaking operation (run out of the Hunts Point market) that got busted back in 2006.
Are there any mob influence in garbage any more? Barney has his own garbage co. though right? So does that made guy with the luccheses, one of the Castelluccis/Castille brothers. I figure all that property rights BS is over, butthere must be something still going on, landfill scams?


Due to the Giuliani regulations and the national carting corporations moving into NY in the 1990's, the mob doesn't have a lock on commercial garbage like it once did. However, it's still very involved, especially in the unregulated recycling and demolition industries. A report out of New Jersey was just released a month or two ago talking about the ongoing organized crime involvement in the waste industry there. The last "property rights" example I can think of was from the June 2006 case up in Connecticut where Matty Ianniello was controlling the garbage industry through James Galante's companies.
The Arthur Ave feast is huge, imo its more traditional than san gennaro, go there every year. Gotta get those #%@&#%@ zeppoles man lol. I always figured the genovese and the lucchese split it in half, since they are the only family with a notable presemce in that nieghborhood. Speaking of which, whatever the fu-- ever happened to luie bracciole? Sal Locacio? Funzi? never hear about those guys. What about the bonannos?


Louie Bracciole is still around but he's 81 now. The last case he was involved in was back in 2001. You probably recall Locascio's crew being involved in that phone cramming and internet porn scam that took in hundreds of millions of dollars before it was broken up back in 2005. From what I've heard, Sal Locascio is still the official captain but he spends most of his time down in Florida and Andy Campos is the acting captain. Funzie Sisca is still around. He's 68. Still official captain of his crew, as far as I know. Louis “Bo” Filippelli is the acting captain and was involved in the big February 2008 Gambino case.

I'm not sure if you're asking about the Bonanno family in general or just the Bronx faction of the family, which has been hit pretty hard over the past decade in the cases involving Vinny Gorgeous, Patty DeFillipo, Michael Mancuso, etc. All 5 NY families have some presence in the Bronx, to one degree or another, although you're right that the Genovese and Luccheses have the most.
How did the horses crew get into san gennaro? I thought Tony Urso had that. Whos running his crew now that Ant Calabrese is inside? Hell, whos runnin the bonannos? TVs inside, Grazianos inside, Calabrese and Nicky Santora are inside. Who stepped up? Or any predictions? Joe Cs kid wants it i know. If he could get past the fact that his father is a homo.

I get all these greaseballs confused.. Its really hard for a nearly illiterate jameson drinking irishman like myself lol.
Ianniello's crew has been involved in the San Gennaro festival at least since the 1990's. Jimmy Ida, who was from Matty's crew, was busted in a case involving the feast back in 1996, I believe. While Bonanno member Perry Criscitelli was involved in the feast some years back, San Gennaro has always been a Genovese racket traditionally.

Vito Balsamo was the acting captain of the crew, while Calabrese was indicted as a soldier. It's not clear who is currently running the Bonanno family since Vinny TV was indicted. Chili's crew has continued to be pretty active, being involved in cases in New York and Florida in 2005 and 2009. I haven't heard anything about him taking the top spot though. Yeah, it was Paradiso who supposedly slapped Gotti back in the 1970's.

Well, that's why I mentioned the Real Deal and Gangstersbb forums. I'm on both of them and there's others besides just myself. This board is pretty dead when it comes to OC talk. It's a gang forum anyway. The Real Deal, especially, is the best. Lots of guys from all over NYC there, as well as Jersey, Philly, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, etc. I actually live in Utah. You'll get a lot more feedback and talk about the stuff we discuss here over there or on the Gangsters board. I'm still waiting for David (the administrator) to "open the books" on the Real Deal again. They've been closed for a while now. But if you wanted to sign up on Gangsters, you could talk about all the same stuff there and I could put you on the list for the Real Deal. I think they'd appreciate having another "local" guy there. Some real crazy, ball breakers over on the Real Deal.

Haha damn bro, you never cease to amaze me! You must really soak up those Capeci articles lol.

Yeah i guess Romanello must run that crew, he ran a club, a kind of lounge across from tough tonys restaurant. (I wanna say it was called corona ave social club but thats only a guess). We only ever knew that he ran the club by word of mouth, my old man was a fixture in that place and he never met Tony outside from in the restaurant. My dad kind of stopped hangin around there around when it was closed because he didint get along with some of the younger (well 40-50 yr olds) that hung around there. He enjoyed the old timers, the guys who would take a bet on whether the sun would rise the next morning lol... But a lot of younger guys from long island started hanging around trying to get their fingers pricked and what not. As you can imagine these guys didnt have shit for sense and were around there all the time saying shit like "tell tony about me" and "what did tony say about me"... A bunch of steroid using, crack dealing punks. A lot of those guys wised up for the most part and got their buttons. Mike Virtuoso was one, Jimmy Esposito, Ant Pepitone really turned out to be gold for Danny Cuatia.

Yeah i never heard about that bust with the Gatto crew. Most those guys live around Ft. Lee, Englewood, Fair Lawn, places where its still white. I love hearing people spout BS about "the mafia controls/supplys the drugs to the ghetto"- yeah, OK... You go to paterson and say that a couple of times and within ten minutes youll be chased by a group of teens with fucking machetes. But i am pretty pleased that my assumptions were right. :)

About the docks, local 1814 is brooklyn navy yard i know, i should do some research to find about the red hook terminal, which is different. Local 1 is Port Newark, right near the ironbound neighborhood, which is run by Tinos (old) crew. So Mikey Coppola runs it then if you are right. Is he the son of trigger mike? Wasnt he a bronx guy? Tino was one of those crazy mfers that had stories that made you cringe about him. I have heard a story (just a story idk how true) about him stabbing an underling with a icepick so hard that is got stuck to the floor under him. My cousin talks of a guy by the name "Jimmy Cootch" is in charge of the local. No idea to how truthful, i guess youll have to look him up.

Yeah it is John, my brother was in his wedding. Hes with Frankie the hat. His father was a gotti guy with peter and later ronnie t. John used to be with TG on staten island, but a guy named Porky Zannochio beat the shit out of him at a party and he got a transfer to joe the cripples crew. John was friends with Lee Davanzo, who is famous for being Dritas husband on mob wives. He ran a crew called the new springville crew that was into drugs and bank heists, made millions to. Johns not very bright but my brother fucking loves him...

I did mean the bonannos bronx crew, and i saw how funzi is said to be a bronx captain, but i think more realistically he would be a westchester and north jersey kind of guy.

I asked my pop, jerry chilli called gravano a rat to his face, while he was gottis number 2, and gotti never did shit bc he was trying to get on good terms with that family to bring them onto the commission so he could over power the chin. If he whacked Chilli, he woulda screwed it all up.

Another Story-
My brother, my roomate and I worked at a place called playstation in the city back in the day... This was about 04-05, i wasnt even drinking age but i was living away from home and trying to afford an apartment in Greenpoint. Back then we were paying 2200 a month for a 2 bedroom, which is considered good now. Neither of our jobs made enough to leave us with much spending money. So i talked to my older brother and he was able to get me a job as a dealer and my roomate as a doorman cause he was big. We got paid 20 an hour plus tips(well i got tips), which came to around around 200-250 bucks by the end of a shift. There were 10 tables moving on a weeknight, each table took in 80 bucks an hour, action usually picked up around 5 pm. I remember Robert Downey Jr sitting at my table for a game of nlhe. Anyways it was closed in 2005, nypd came and arrested everyone there. Of course around only 25% of all employees that worked there were there in one night, so me and my roomate both got away clean. My managers name was Michele Iocono, we called him mike, he was about 75-80 at the time. Maybe you might know him, i had the impression he was made, just kindof how he talked, said he wasnt worried about robbers and such and such... He let it slip he lived on smith street in carroll gardens. My girlfriend at the time was living on court st, and i told him she loved the neighborhood but couldnt afford the rent. And he tells me about his friend-Al whos wife has her name on the apartment her parents had since 1936, with like 75 dollar rent. I do the usual- "HOLY SHIT!!!" he probably hears everytime he tells someone that, and i ask him how his friends health is bc im assuming he was about 90. He goes "Aahh kid blast is gonna live till hes 110, hes survived more shit than you would ever know". Im kindof wondering who the hell this guy is till i pick up on "kid blast", I say "Kid Blast like the song??" (meaning bob dylans "joey") He says yeah. And i start asking him abunch of questions about crazy joe and hes telling me stories about how they took on the colombos. He never said that he was under Al Gallo, but he said he was a skipper, and that he was the most respected guy left in the neighborhood. Thats about as connected as i get lol, cool story to tell your friends though.


Aw shit i forgot this place sensors cuss words. Thanks for the input tho westside, the realdeal sounds like i would like it just for the free gangland if nothing else lol...

Well, you at least can count on guys like Jerry Capeci and George Anastasia being solid sources of info about the mob. Unlike certain other OC authors or many journalists in general. But I do wish Capeci would put some more effort in. His weekly articles have been sort of "hit and miss" in recent years as far as how interesting they are. For a while, Anastasia was doing weekly news videos about the mob in Philly and he's got maybe a couple dozen guys on the street to work with there. Capeci has hundreds in New York and still has Anastasia fill in for him from time to time.

Yeah, I've heard several of the stories about Tino. The one where he stabbed a guy in the chest with an icepick, of course. Another one where he strangled a guy to death with a piano wire. Then another one where he shot three guys in a bar. One that stands out was the case of Robert Harris back in 1969. He was a black civic leader and nightclub owner opened a sportsbook catering to black players in Tino's territory. Long story short, when they found his body at a local dump in New Jersey, his skull was crushed, his spine broken, the ribs on his right side were caved in, nine ribs on the left side were fractured, and one of his legs was broken. He had also been shot once in the chest.

Ha, whether he likes it or not, Lee D'Avanzo's name is probably more well known now because of his wife's show than because of the New Springville Boys. Did you ever see the bit they did on Jimmy Kimmel where they used an argument from Mob Wives between Lee and Drita and combined it with the Flintstones? Pretty funny.

Anyway even though the books are closed, so to speak, I've put in a special request to the powers that be to let you in. I think you'd be a good addition over there and you'll find the 1000x more what we talk about here over there. Lots of people from your neck of the woods.

Sticks,

I sent you a email from this board. I thought it was just a regular PM from one poster to another on message boards but that function has been spotty here. Anyway, it said my message was sent to you. I don't know if it went to your personal email or to your account here. Either way, let me know if you got it. It's about the Real Deal.

If you can't find my message you could always give me your email and I could send it to you directly. But I don't know if you just want to paste it right here on the board. Like I said before, another way would be to sign up over on Gangstersbb and then I could PM you there. Kind of pain in the butt. But the Real Deal is worth it. After you check that place out, you probably won't bother with this board again. I don't that much anymore.

I should add that I could just give you the contact instructions right here on the board. But then other people could pretend they were you when contacting the RD administration to try and sign up.

Sticks, did you send the email to this address below? David says he'll check again but he doesn't think he received your email. You may want to send another one (just in case) to the address below and tell him you're "sticks" and that you're the guy "wiseguy" is recommending.

I'd be happy to. Only problem is, the Real Deal isn't taking new members right now. (They made a special exception for sticks.) Here's what I suggest you do. Sign up for the Gangstersbb forum at the link below. I post as "IvyLeague" there. There's a lot more discussion of organized crime there anyway and I can put you on a list of guys that are waiting to sign up for the Real Deal forum. Just shoot me a PM once you've signed up over there.

westside did you guys hear about pepe gettin taken down in jersey a couple of days ago.? Had a long talk with a real heavyweight guy iv known for years yesterday. Ive been hearing tthat the bonannos have gone to a ruling panel. I was wrong about jerry tho he wants nothing to do with it. Big John Zanochio took over tgs crew, He said willy glasses is the new bronx captain. I think he was bumped down sometime and replacxed with "the walker" Jerry Asaro wants it... Hes getting backed by blaise/joe and mickey p and the HB guys. The asaros are big shits around queens- like the persicos, everyones a wiseguy. Sal Catalano and Vinny fareci are 2 captains iheard about that you didnt have listed for that family. Sal is a bensonhurst captain, vinny idk. Just names i heard. They could be standing in for someone sick or whos away so idk... The colombos- your forgetting Joe Tomasello, John Scopo, Jimmy brown clamenza, Ton Colombo (joes son), Sally boy fusco (nerves nephew), and Vinny Lang. Vinny Lang took the persico crew, Joe T got his own crew back, John S got ralph and his fathers crew. Jimmy Brown took his brothers crew and i believe jerry was shelved. Sal Fusco got his uncles crew and billy russo took whats left over of the russo crew. Joe T is also the acting #3-not my opinion either i thought it would be tony colombo or vinny lang. The franseze crew in queens is about dead, no acting capo- 2 made guys one 40-a pill junkie, one in his 80s. Joe Dente got replaced to, just to let you know. And no david has not emailed me has he emailed you?

Yeah, the LaScala bust has been the main topic of discussion recently. Did you see the actual criminal complaint below? Goes into some pretty good detail.

http://www.justice.gov/usao/nj/Press/fi ... plaint.pdf


Like I said in my email to you today (you got it, right?), I talked to David's #2 guy (Tommy) and he's going to get David on it. As I said, I think David has been away for the past few days so that's the reason for the delay.

Yup i got it thanks pal. And to correct myself the guys under sonny are "on loan" to joe t- which is why theres no acting captain. Has vinny tv been sentenced yet? Westside what would ur predictions be for the bonnanos administration? I would like to think theres a ruling panel trying to decide whether to keep the staten island guys at the top or not. I doubt they will hang on for it for to long, queens has more power on the street. Tony Rabito, Willie glasses, Louie D, Jerry Asaro, Vinny A, Jerrys dad etc.. Queens guys all the way. Brooklyn-Joe C? Catalano? Forget about it. Whos from SI? Porky? The strong crews left have skippers that live in jersey, chilli crew, joe from bayonne? TG is on the inside, Nicky who was a north bk guy, which really makes him a queens guy in my book. Greenpoint is about as much south bk as my left ass cheek. Doesnt matter anyways cause hes inside to! Boy people are really pissing on this guy lately to he would take a plea deal and fucked himself up. In one move he went from a living legand to local idiot.. The name nicky mouth got some respect in its day, thats how the life is i guess. You go to jail and when you come out your boss took all your business and your bestfriend has knocked up your wife. Id say the new administration will look like this-

1-Jerry or Vinny Asaro
2-Asaro #2
3-Tony Rabito/Louie electric

If the power shifts completely that is. I doubt it though, no one wants to make waves. If it shifts itll be cause tv lets go of the top. keep in mind his crew is still a fucking powerhouse, plus hes got the backing of all the brooklyn guys in jail and out. Tony Green, the Haha bros, Peter Rabbet, Mike Mancuso, TG,Jerry Chilli... Heavy names let me tell you. This actually a pretty good topic- i should start a new thread. I think i will but not tonight...(thewestside you can start one if you think its a good idea) OFF TO THE BAR!!!!! MCSORLEYS HERE I COME!!!

See, this is why David needs to get back so we need to get you over on the Real Deal. There are a lot of guys over there that love to make predictions. It's like some of them hate a power vacuum. But I'm usually not so quick to start throwing out names unless it's fairly clear. With the Bonannos, there's no one in particular that stands out. So a panel of multiple guys wouldn't surprise me.

I don't recall if Vinny TV has been sentenced yet. But, with the plea deal, I think he was facing around two years or so.

This is what the current Bonanno chart over on the Real Deal looks like...

Capos:
1. Sandro Aiosa/69 - Brooklyn
2. Jerome “Jerry” Asaro/53 - Queens
3. Vincent "Vinny T.V." Badalamenti/53 (IP)/Vito Balsamo/55 (UI/IP) - Brooklyn and Staten Island
4. Joseph "Joe C/Joe Saunders" Cammarano/77 (IP)/Joseph Cammarano Jr/52 – Brooklyn
5. Gerard "Jerry" Chilli/77 (IP/3/10/2012)/John “Big John” Catello/56 (IP/3/20/2012) – Staten Island and Florida
6. Louis “Louie Electric” DeCicco/65/Anthony "Little Anthony" Pepitone/39 (IP/2/07/2013)
– Brooklyn, Long Island and Queens
7. Anthony “The Hat/Walker” Frascone/62 (UI/IP) - Bronx, Queens and Long Island
8. Anthony "Tony Black" Furino/56 - Staten Island
9. Anthony "T.G." Graziano/71 (IP/8/3/2012) - Brooklyn, Staten Island and Florida
10. Anthony "Elmont" Mannone/67 (IP/6/27/2013) – Brooklyn and Long Island
11. Anthony "Fat Anthony/Mr. Fish" Rabito/77 – Queens and Manhattan
12. William "Willie Glasses" Riviello/70 – Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens
13. Nicholas "Nicky Mouth" Santora/69 (UI/IP) – Brooklyn and Long Island
14. Joseph "Sammy" Sammartino-57/Joseph "Joe Lefty" Loiacono/66 (IP/5/18/2012) - New Jersey
15. Anthony "Scal" Scalafani/65 (IP/2/4/2014) - Staten Island
