The Joe Kapp incident might've been an early sign of Alzheimer's. A lot of these older guys get very ornery and unreasonable as a first symptom.  I'm sure Mosca was generally ornery and unreasonable even in his younger days, but that seemed a bit extreme and out of character even for him, and isn't something that should taint his legacy.
I don't think it tainted anything, in fact I think it garnered him sympathy.  Joe Kapp took a beating as a football player but remained at least at the time somewhat strong and able to move around.  Angelo Mosca was on a walker at the time and shouldn't have opened his mouth, but give the man credit - he had something to say and said it and took the consequences without crying like a baby.  To me, it made Mosca an even bigger star for having the balls to make that kind of move.
