    Default ***Attn fans: Citywide Dolan Protest - 6/28/06***

    I'm just spreading the word to the rest of us fans. An intrepid fan has made big strides in organizing knick fans. It is our duty as NYC area knick fans to take the day off on that wed, and support the cause. This event is going to be huge as the media will be in place to record the events. Just imagine how embarassing its going to be for Dolan and Stern.

    Hey Everyone,

    A big thanks to all the supporters of selltheknicks.com! We really are making an impact, and this thing is only a few weeks old. We've got a big date coming up and that's June 28, 2006 - the NBA Draft. Representatives from every team in the league will be there, along with the Commissioner, David Stern. The event will be televised on national TV by ESPN from our very own Madison Square Garden. As if that wasn't a big enough deal already, everyone knows that the Chicago Bulls will be selecting with our #2 lottery pick as a result of the Eddy Curry trade. This is a prime opportunity for us to get noticed and drive home the incompetence of Dolan and crew.

    The best way to get noticed and to have the largest impact is to be organized. I have started a thread in the main Knicks forum on the website to gauge people's interest in various activities on the day of the draft. Nothing is set in stone, so don't feel bad if you can't or don't want to do something. This is just a short survey to know what we're dealing with.

    I think it would be great to do a short meet and greet beforehand just to rally everyone together and get us pumped. I have been talking to a couple of restaurants near MSG to see if they can host this. Then we could do a huge march from the restaurant to MSG (only a couple of blocks). Just an idea I had, feel free to e-mail me if you have other ideas on how we can get organized. Anyway, if you can please go to the forums and reply in the thread it would be much appreciated. This is the easiest way for me to have all the info in one place.

    This thing is really catching steam. The protest looks like its going to have an impressive turnout, and should get national attention in the sports world.

    A.The PTI guys talked about it.
    B. Stephen A. Smith has also.
    C. The New York Post has been instrumental in pluggin it (they really are pushing the story as an exclusive).
    D. Dolan's taken notice and attempted to close down the site.
    E. ESPN has a stroy on it on the front page of the NBA section (Insiders Only)
    F. The Owner of the site has been invited by ESPN to be a part of a national web chat on its Sportsnation page.


    C'mon guys, be apart of this. As much as we waste our days bickering over trades, we are all bonded by our love for this team.

    I hope everyone who has a chance will go, this is going to be a huge event, the media is on the fans' side, i know it probably won't change much but at least we show we care about the team not just about the tickets

    Great Idea and a truly worthy cause. I will be there at 5 pm to march after I get out of work.

    We must religiously chant "Down with Dolan", "Dolan Sucks" or "Free the Knicks" during the entire NBA Draft.

    The NYPD said the protest is legal and will be escorting all the fans. I bet any chance the city has to screw Dolan is legal.

    How about chanting "Let's go Knicks"? Was that Dolan benching David Lee following that 6 game winning streak? Was that Dolan trashing his players in the Papers? Something, by the way, that if a player did would get him fined and labled a cancer in the lockerroom. Was that Dolan burying Frye, Robinson and Lee on the bench? Was that Dolan not blocking shots or rebounding as if he were scared to mess up his manicure (Curry)? You talk all that trash about Dolan, but through all of this, not once did he trash Larry Frontrunner in the papers. You can't say the same about Brown. He showed no class doing that stuff. Dolan should be your hero. He got rid of Larry Frontrunner! Now Nate & Company can shine!

    Theres about 500 fans marching down 46th street that feel the same way moron. Why don't you read any newspaper, or just put watch any station not named MSG to give you a reason why Dolan is the worst owner in New York Sport's history. Or give me a good explanation fans shouldn't be mad at Dolan.. I work until 5, and I dont mind responding til then.

    I don't agree with you, so I'm a moron? How very 8th grade.
    Well, here's a few reasons for you, junior:
    1) I don't know you, but I'd guess he has a few more dollars in his wallet than you do, making him able to buy the team you profess to love so much.
    2) As I stated earlier, he refused to follow Larry Frontrunner's lead and talk trash about his employees in the papers, which takes class (I'll explain what I mean by 'class' to you later, if you like).
    3) He's shown loyalty to Isiah, the man chosen to rebuild the team, and he was smart enough to know when his coach was to sabotaging his team and wasn't shy about pulling a 40m trigger and cut out the cancer.
    You know, it's not uncommon for us poor folk to misunderstand the doings of the rich, and, you must admit, those rich folks do make easy targets, huh?
    Don't worry, though, you'll be praising him soon as he's proven to have made the right moves and the Knicks turn this thing around.
    Moron, lol!

    i know the losing ppl can blame other ppl for the losing but i dont understand the hate against dolan, i believe the knicks are fortunate to have a owner like dolan, dolan shows that he is willing to spend money instead breaking the whole team and rely on drafting and free agents, i like ppl who at least try

    honestly, am i the only one who thought some of the knicks fans made the entire state look bad last night. i felt like i was watching a high school graduation party. the one kid could barely stand and somehow screamed out during his 10 second interview "we gotta fire isiah. get him the hell outta ny". i really thought he was gonna puke all over the reporter. that woulda made the night complete.
