James Dolan, Executive Chairman of Madison Square Garden, Inc

Sell the New York Knicks and New York Rangers

    1. Petition by

      R Simm

      New York, NY

James Dolan has, at every turn, failed the loyal fan-base of his professional sports franchises - the New York Knicks (NBA) and New York Rangers (NHL) - through a combination of unscrupulous business machinations, cable television disputes and blackouts, ignominious failures in personnel decisions both in the management and athletic aspects of the organizations' construction, betrayal of said fans via direct contradiction of their unequivocal desires, total disloyalty to athletes who have proven to be universally beloved by the city of New York and its fans, and most egregious, seemingly done all of these things at the behest of his own petty personal desires, as his unchecked ego bids.

The city and state of New York, as well as fans, Madison Square Garden shareholders and all interested parties all over the U.S. and around the globe, deserve better, and deserve the mutual respect and admiration that many other franchise afford and enjoy.

Sell the Knicks and Rangers, Mr. Dolan. You are an abandoned, barren, isolated desert island of an owner and it is in everyone's best interests except your own that you give them a chance to claw out from under your oppressively misguided navigation of Madison Square Garden and all her interests.

      It is now time for you to take a few steps back and retire. You have done nothing for the fans nor the players of hockey or basketball except take in the rewards for being the big man on campus and line your pockets with the revenue coming from us, the FANS, that go to the Garden to see our favorite teams and players do what they do so well. Now that you've practically made it close to impossible for us LOYAL FANS to go to the Garden and watch our teams, we will have to watch on t.v., but you make that close to impossible as well. Do us all a huge justice and just sell your share to someone that KNOWS how to run both organizations and still keep revenue flowing without hurting the main source of that main income - that would be by us, the fans. If all you see is dollars signs and how many of them you can get, that's just sad. Not only are you hurting us, the fans, but you're hurting the players as well. Because without us fans going to watch these great athletes, these athletes will feel like they're doing all of this for no one. You need to brush up on your management skills. I hear McDonald's is looking for an Assistant Manager.

      James Dolan is one of the worst owners in professional sports and the single reason the Knicks will continue to wallow in mediocrity!

      NYR fan desperate to see my team win the Stanley Cup more than once every few decades; at this rate I might never see them win one.

      James Dolan is a cancer to the New York Knicks Organization. He is unqualified to be leading any professional sports franchise. He is an angry man with a short fuse who is incapable of making basic basketball decisions. In the best interest of New York basketball, Dolan should resign.
