I have no problem with the AZ AG keeping a close eye on Crow's real estate development schemes. I would want to know who is behind the Omni Hotel deal. If i remember correctly, that location was previously handed to Crow's buddy, Michael Hallmark of Future Cities (Sports Center Development masterplanner) and Jerry Colangelo in a sweetheart deal where Hallmark got the site development and a ready occupant and Colangelo got some leasing rights to State Farm Operations facilities. When Ray Anderson came, Colangelo pulled the USA Basketball Center out of the deal and Hallmark was left in the cold.
As for funding ASU sports, I have genuine doubts that the Athletic Department ever sees most of that money. These are fungible revenues that will end up being spent growing Crow's World Wide University Masterplan.
