    Default just a thought...we all can do something to change this

    I've been reading so many articles over the last few days tearing both thomas and dolan a new a*hole. Does anyone think we as fans can do anything but stand idly by and watch this team sink lower into earth's mantle (you know, since sinking in the sea already happened in december)?

    Organize a boycott?
    An explosion of dump-marbury fire-thomas and fire-dolan internet web sites?
    A public plea to Donald Trump to buy the team?

    A week or two ago ESPN got in contact with this site about a Quite Frankly screening, so this site is obvisously on the radar. I just think that in the modern era of sports, us fans have collective power. This crap with our team would never happen to the Boston Red Sox.

    Or I could be just in despair. If all fans chip in, we could buy full page ads in the major papers and submit open letters proposing a boycott. Just imagine the headlines!!!! ESPN would give the Dolan situation 24 hour "Bonds" coverage, and it would put an insane amount of pressure on Dolan to step down, Thomas to step down, Marbury to shut up...all out of national embarassment.

    For this team, I would donate 100$ for add space. What about you guys? This has gone too far, and its time to be proactive fans.

    lol in case u cant tell from this web-site alone that the fans are torn. some of us are on the fire brown bus, other on the fire isiah one, others on the get outta here dolan, and some even want marbury gone. do u really think this will scare dolan into resigning? the guy takes so much sh*t from the media. mainly the daily news, ny post, newsday, ect... and it doesnt faze him. how can u blaim a guy who's doing everything in his power to try and turn this franchise into a contender again. the guy spends more $$$ than any owner in the league. hes willing to spend more than a mega-millions winner just to get rid of a coach who's not fit for the job. u guys keep blaiming dolan, and isiah, and steph but let me put it this way once my cable gets raised just so we can fire larry my chant will be "HANG LARRY"

    I dont know, i think the fans are that torn. We all want change and we all are ashamed of the front office moves thats been done.

    A series of open letters in the papers should be able to express the core of our views.

    What do you say dude? would you be interested in this campaign? lets organize and get an assesment of how much money we can get from fans to buy a full page ad.

    So, how much is Thomas paying you ?? Stop taking mind altering drugs. They've obviously deteriorated your brain past the point of no return. Either that or your just terminally retarded.

    To quote the Daily News: "The Knicks had a payroll of roughly $125 million this season for a 23-59 team. Thomas traded away the Knicks' lottery pick in this year's draft and next year's first-round pick for Eddy Curry, who often seems to be playing basketball underwater. They are about $60 million over the NBA's luxury-tax threshold, which means they pay out even more to other teams than they are going to pay Brown. ... "

    Senseless spending of massive amounts of someone else’s money and making horrendously stupid managerial moves is not what anyone with a brain would call an accomplishment.

    You do realize what the team's record was after all this 'managing', 'negotiating' and 'spending' by Thomas and Dolan right ?? You do realize that this team is so far up ****'s creak that even the most brilliant minds in the NBA couldn't dig the Knicks out of the ****hole that Thomas and Dolan has dug for the team, for years to come. Go take a hike with your Thomas ass kissing and feel free to take Larry Brown with you if you want.

    (You’re not by any chance Isiah Thomas writing under a pseudonym are you ???) That would explain a lot ! I wouldn't put it past him at this point in his career or eventual end thereof in the NBA after next season that is. LOL

    I think people should definately stop going to the games. That's the only thing that would get the attention of the upper crust.

    it doesnt sound like a bad idea. the only thing is a lot of people aren't going to agree with eachothers views. and if that's the case then why would someone wanna support funds for a reason they don't believe in. after larry turned down $25 million to walk away kinda shows what kind of guy he is. i feel like we're watching a long episode of "deal or no deal" and larry isn't gonna settle til he gets every single penny possible. instead of taking the 25 million and moving onto the next team (kings, warriors) he wants 2 drag out the xtra 15million because he knows he has the control. im really starting to think about that article i read about LB's wife marking her words that he would NOT coach the knicks. she said that was a fact. and then he went and bit on the 50 mill. then he ran a talented team (my opinion) into the 2nd worst record in the league while bashing almost every player in the process. he knew neither dolan or isiah would tolerate it. so now the ball is in larry's court. he's pretty much hitting lotto to either get fired or walking away from a team after showing one of the worst coaching displays ever.

    obviously by my user name im not gonna be one to pay out $$$ for a program that is trying to get rid of my favortie player. maybe other people will go for it, this is just my take on it.

    I'd rather gather all that money, form a trust company representing fans, purchase Cablevision stock and strip that silverspoon-fed a$$hole of his oversight of this team.

    Now THAT'S the most far-fetched idea ya'll ever read.

    How about we inquire who are Cablevision's other stockholders and just stuff their mailboxes with fan mail DEMANDING Dolan be rid of his privileges over this team. Someone call CNBC!!!

    jffga stop making all theze posts that have no purpose just to try and get outta newbie status. anyone can see you're reading way to much newspapers and too f*ckin gullable or stupid to come up with your OWN opinion. for the short few days uve been on this site ive heard u call half the people here retards or drug abusers. u act like u've came onto this site and enlightened us to see the way things really ar, when honestly all ive heard come from u is a bunch of pointless bullsh*t. the one thing u may be right about is if u wanna get rid of dolan then dont go to games. well that's u. im a knicks fan. imma support them no matter what. so u can sit around and blame dolan, isiah, stephon, or whoever else the media wants to put the spotlight on. me on the other hand, i'd rather watch the games myself and come up with my own take on things. ur just some immature fan who thinks anyone who disagrees with u, or should i say the media, is wrong. meanwhile u havn't said one thing i havn't read in the paper.

    There's no reason why Larry brown should take a buyout. He put his reputation on the line and signed a contract that was drafted and labored over extensively by both party’s lawyers. Evidently the contract did not anticipate the complete extent of Thomas and Dolan’s stupidity. Lol. Brown may be caustic to work for and is somewhat crazy for having put himself in the situation of having to coach the Thomas team disaster in the first place. But he certainly wasn't going into this deal for free. Now should he. NO COACH in the NBA would take the coachng job from Thomas, which is why he's now going to be in the hot seat. The Knicks are past the point of no return.

    hahaha...that's gotta be the quote of the day. can we not all agree that we're unhappy with where the knicks are heading? its hard to believe that anyone right now could believe the knicks are currently in a good situation and has a good future.

    Start a new thread, this is going off topic lol

    I just want to get an assesment of how to organize publicity and funds to get the attention of Knicks managment and the rest of the media.

    I'm trying to get estimates from the Daily News, New York Post, and Newsday on how much it cost to get a full page ad in their sports pages. I got a feeling the Post will be most receptive, just so that they have a great news story to write about on sunday.

    I think we can all agree that we want Dolan to respond to us fans. Can we all agree on that?

    How many posts does it take to become the next GM of the Knicks ?? Disagreeing with obvious facts does not make you objective. It proves that you have no common sense. No need to drag this issue out any further. Thomas will go down with his little ship of fools next season, and we can't wait. (btw, I'm a benchwarmer now !)

    i can agree on that. i'm glad u created this topic because dolan needs to listen to someone else other than isiah. altho, i highly doubt this plan will work, at least it gets the brainstorm going. there seriously needs to be a change.

    I agree, I tend to get a bit too carried away on the pitiful topic of Isiah Thomas and James Dolan. Please accept my apologies for calling everyone supporting these bums retards and drug abusers. I know there are much better adjectives I could have used that were not as personally attacking.

    I must say, you are dedicated !!! Even if it is to somewhat of an extreme fault. If I'm ever allowed to become the GM of a professional sports team and am allowed to completely drive the team into the ground I want you right there rooting for me ! (I think?)

    In the immortal words of Rodney King: "why can't we all just get along ?'

    Go Knicks !!

    lol to be honest i'm really not even close to loyal to isiah or dolan. like ive said in previous posts both have made more than plenty of mistakes. i never said they've done an incredible job. so dont put me in that category.

    right now i think its obvious that it's either dolan & isiah or larry brown. i wanna know, if larry isn't gonna settle for the $25 million and dolan won't spend the extra $15 million to get him out, then what? will brown try and sabotage the team even worse than he did this past season just to try and get dolan to sell the team. will he go for 50+ different starting lineups or he will he decide on something like this...
    pg- nate robinson
    sg- ime udoka
    sf- malik rose
    pf- mo taylor
    c- jerome james

    right now theres one of the biggest power struggles in ny history going on. i know this much tho, almost every player that isiah has coached in the past ive heard say he is a great coach. sh*t if letting isiah take over will give us a better shot of landing jermaine o'neal or al harrington than i say why not. he could coach the team we have right now with his eyes closed and still break 23 wins.
