    Dolan: "Start Rooting For The Nets Because The Knicks Don't Want You"
    [​IMG]

    New York Knicks and Cablevision CEO James Dolan lashed out at a lifelong fan over email, suggesting the fan was an alcoholic who should start rooting for the Nets "because the Knicks don't want you."

    Dolan's response was extraordinarily disproportionate given the relatively mild-mannered—and accurate!—criticisms levied by the fan, who says he's been a Knicks supporter since 1952. (We received copies of the emails from filmmaker Aaron Bierman, whose father was the target of Dolan's wrath.)

    Here's the email that was sent to Dolan:

    Subject: I have been a knicks fan since 1952

    At one stage I thought that you did a wonderful thing when you acquired EVERYTHING from your dad. However, since then it has been ALL DOWN HILL. Your working with Isaiah Thomas & everything else regarding the Knicks. Bringing on Phil Jackson was a positive beginning, but lowballing Steve Kerr was a DISGRACE to the knicks. The bottom line is that you merely continued to interfere with the franchise.

    As a knicks fan for in excess of 60 years, I am utterly embarrassed by your dealings with the Knicks. Sell them so their fans can at least look forward to growing them in a positive direction Obviously, money IS NOT THE ONLY THING. You have done a lot of utterly STUPID business things with the franchise. Please NO MORE.

    Respectfully,

    [Aaron Bierman's dad]

    You are a sad person. Why would anybody write such a hateful letter. I am.just guessing but ill bet your life is a mess and you are a hateful mess. What have you done that anyone would consider positive or nice. I am betting nothing. In fact ill bet you are negative force in everyone who comes in contact with you. You most likely have made your family miserable. Alcoholic maybe. I just celebrated my 21 year anniversary of sobriety. You should try it. Maybe it will help you become a person that folks would like to have around. In the mean while start rooting.for the Nets because the Knicks dont want you.

    Respectfully

    He, Dolan, is a typical weak willed alcoholic that projects his inadequacies and failures on others. Fuck him.

    Another rich prick surrounded by ass kissers who doesn't know how to handle criticism.
    I don't know what that email was all about Gar. James has been hitting it out of the park for the last 15 years.

    I can sympathize with the fan. There is no need for a person in Dolan's position and stature to respond that way :bleachcoffee:

    Dolan is a guy born on third base who thinks he hit a triple. Too bad he also didn't break out Stern's line about pissing on his fans.

    Exactly.. Just another self-enabled douche legacy owner like Woody Johnson, and coke fiend Robert Irsay who inherited the bulk of their estates, maybe let that money work for them, but essentially never built anything tangible themselves. Fuck him. He made the mistake of screwing with not only a faithful but disgusted (and correct) very long term fan, but also the father of someone in the business who can grab a platform to vent their righteous indignation. IMO this will have ripple effects.
