Yeah, I saw that a while back. If you read Fosco's blog over time, you'll see that he doesn't care for DiFronzo at all. Magnafichi apparently had a falling out with him too. It was interesting that DiFronzo wasn't charged in the "Family Secrets" case. But that doesn't necessarily mean he's a rat.

yeh i found it weird because isn't Michael Magnaficci a current made member and why would he give an interview ? Also what would a current Chicago chart look like?

Also by my research Detroit is still a viable family and engaging in bookmaking, loansharking, and gambling but some tend to disagree but there level of activity seems to go under the radar and what would a chart of detroit look like?

Magnafichi says he is retired. So I guess he felt he could give an interview, of sorts, for the same reason Gotti Jr. did. Some things he would discuss and others he wouldn't.

There's been relatively little mob activity in Detroit over the past decade. There was the gambling and loansharking bust involving 15 people back in 2006. But that was 10 years after the last big bust before that. I'd be willing to bet we won't see another case like the one in 1996. And there's been a few other things, like some connected guys involved in a point shaving scheme and the D'Annas assaulting a rival restaurant owner. Bottom line, there's not much evidence to support the belief some have that Detroit still going strong under the radar.

As for charts, that depends on which ones you go with. Like I said, you should sign up for the Real Deal forum. I could provide an invite if you want. Or you could try the Gangstersbb forum. You'll find those boards a lot more informative about the mob than this one.
