I found this great recording from JFK ground. It's tough to say exactly who did what wrong, but essentially, one line of planes was holding on Bravo short of Victor, and another line of planes was coming around from Uniform to Bravo. The leader of Bravo, short of Victor was supposed to weave in, and didn't, and so that whole line kept moving. Chaos ensues.

I don't know much about ground control or much of ATC for that matter but from what I've heard and learned (thanks to UA's channel 9) something like that's not supposed to happen. It's really funny even for myself who doesn't know beyond the phonetic alphabet.
