That's too simplistic, Fletch, and it doesn't necessarily cut the way you want it.

1. The easy refutation is: I'd prefer Dolan make the money. Billionaire or not, he's the one taking the business risk.

2. The more obvious answer is that most of us, maybe yourself included, want neither to make more money. They are both rich (or Tyutin almost certainly will be) beyond the means of all of us here. That said, I'd like to see NEITHER get more money.

Making that happen is as easy as fans staying away from the sport. Seems to me they've invited this, and I'd love to see it happen. (In all four major league sports.)
