I'm not talking about the Mets. That wasn't a disgrace, it was a debacle. There's a difference.

The Knicks, however, are a disgrace.

I wonder how Jim Dolan's father, a man who built a billion dollar company, feels about his ridiculous son running a great franchise into the ground. As Tim Marchman, the wonderful sports columnist from the New York Sun recently wrote, no other NBA franchise would have allowed the sex discrimintaion trial to take place; they would have done what it took to make it go away. Dolan, on the other hand, with his oversized ego, wouldn't back off. The result: Besides an $11.6 million dollar verdict, weeks of horrible publicity.

But why should we be surprised? He's the same clown who extended the contract of the sweet-talking, clueless coach and president with a penchant for trading away unprotected lottery picks for overpaid stiffs. The only mystery is how the Rangers have managed to escape his dopiness.

    This is the same Dolan family that has an 800lb gorilla of a cable system that remains off the radar even within much of the cable world, and in-fought enough to destroy their Voom HD satellite TV system even as it was being launched.

    The lawsuit needed to come to the courts and full fruition. The more they get dragged into the spotlight, the more the light of reality can burn away the stupidity of how they do things.
