Yes, I'm serious.
He lives in a beautiful area in Oyster Bay. Right on the water. Probably one of the largest houses in the area.

If you google his name and his house, the location is very easy to identify.

I have worked for in a few offices/for people in the past who get bombarded with emails, phone calls, and letters throughout the year; much like I'm sure MSG/the Rangers/Dolan do. There are several ways you can actually get your message heard through the white noise:

- Your message is unique, particularly well written, or is conveyed in a way that catches the eye of the person reading it. This usually has more to do with chance and the particular person reading it than anything within your control. Though if you write a ****** letter, your message will undoubtedly be thrown in the garbage.

- Persistence. Be the 'annoying' person who sends a letter every day for a year. Call every single day. Not always the best route to take - but in extreme cases, it can at least get your message delivered. Downside is you may come off as a crazy person, limiting the impact of said message.

- Quantity. In my opinion, of the options that don't set you back monetarily, this is often the best route to take. If you were able to organize a sizable group of people to all send letters or make calls with the same exact message, often times the general message will be delivered. It cuts through the din of all the other random interactions and catches the attention of those who are filtering through the messages before they reach your target audience. Obviously you need more than just a few dozen; for this to be effective, depending upon the frequency with which the target is contacted on a daily basis, it could need to be anywhere from 50 to several hundred or thousand.

- Quantity and quality. Organize season ticket holders to make these calls / write these letters. The message will mean more coming from them. Make sure the ST holders also contact their sales reps and deliver the same message. If you have their sales reps all coming back with the same issues, it can get someone's attention.

- Buy a single share of stock in MSG company / Cablevision. Likewise, your message coming from a shareholder means more than a random fan. If you are really ambitious, attend the shareholder meeting if possible and make a fuss.

- Get media attention. Send your letter (addressed to Dolan) to Rangers beat writers. And encourage other people to do the same. Seriously. I would bet that it could catch their attention enough on a slow day to potentially be written up - especially if you get a number of people to do the same. Provides some controversy and conflict, which, unfortunately, reporters are always looking for to a degree.


Personally, the two routes I would choose are quantity (and quality if you know ST holders or shareholders) and media attention.

The last comment I'll make for now is with regards to the content of your letter. Overall it looks great - but is missing one pretty important thing that could get it taken a bit more seriously:

As you have written it now, Dolan/MSG/Cablevision/NYR stand to lose nothing. You are asking for some money. Great. Ignored.

Demonstrating your hardcore fandom is great - but at the same time, it probably indicates that you aren't going to withhold much if anything from them. I'm not saying to take this stuff out - it is great stuff. But unless it is coupled with some real/credible threat of withholding something meaningful to Dolan (attendance at games, purchasing game center live, purchasing merch, watching games, etc), it could end up meaning little to him.

He stands to lose nothing as the letter is currently constructed. And that is not how you get his attention.

Bravo. Empty seats would be much more alarming than boos for Dolan. Dolan probably wouldn't care at all about boos.

There are teams that have not won championships in 40+ years, I think it would be a little bit entitled to stage a boycott/mass mailing fit over what looks like it could be only the 2nd missed playoffs in 9 seasons.

I actually agree with you but I have this image of Dolan in a board meeting after the publicly traded stock has gone down 5-10 points. He's enraged and so are the investors. This would make it very fun to boycott. In a lost season it'd be about the most Rangers related fun we could have!

Mr. Dolan,

Iím not a fool. I know the odds of you reading this are slim to none, however, to the person who is actually reading this, I sincerely hope you will forward this to Mr. Dolan.

Let me start off by introducing myself. My name is XXXXXXXXXXX. Iíve been a New York Rangers fan my entire life of 33 years. My love of hockey actually led me to meet my wife, a hockey fan and player herself. I live, eat, sleep, and breathe New York Rangers hockey. Iíve run a New York Rangers website since 2006. In short, Iím about as passionate a New York Rangers fan as youíll meetÖ.and I do all this, from Atlanta Georgia.

Yes, I grew up and lived in New York as a child, but when I moved to Atlanta my love of the Rangers followed me. Like many Rangers fan the ability to watch the sport using NHL Center Ice has been a gift from God. It became especially important when the ability to see my beloved Rangers in person was taken away from me by the Winnipeg Jets ownership group.

Iíve watched nearly every game for the past 20 years. Iíve watched Eric Lindros in a Rangers jersey, Iíve watched teams with Dave Karpa miss the playoffs year after year. Iíve seen John Tortorella get into a medieval joust with a Washington Capitals fan, and Iíve seen countless years of horrific hockey, and a few years of some brilliant hockey. 1994, 1997, and 2012 were some great years, and there have been many miserable years in between.

However, nothing, I repeat, nothing has been as awful to watch as this team has been this year. I feel as if watching my beloved team is actually causing me physical pain. After every game I get borderline nauseous watching this disturbing season unfold. In all my time as a Rangers fan I canít ever recall a team that has been this pitiful offensively, this terrible defensively, awful in net, and, most frustratingly of all, I canít recall a team that has lacked more in desire.

These guys donít care.

So, I come to the point of this letter. Iíve never written to you, your company, or anyone in the Rangers or Cablevision organization. But today, that changes. Today, I am sending you a bill. Attached to this letter is an invoice for $159.96. The cost of my non-refundable subscription to NHL Center Ice. Iím not sure how you, in good conscience expect any die-hard fan to pay said bill while the team is performing the way they are on the ice. I pay for my subscription to watch New York Rangers hockey, thus far all I have gotten is some weird hockey snuff film. Watching my team get killed every night while asking me to pay 160 bucks is sick, itís twisted, and itís unacceptable.

Please remit payment by cash, check, or money order, we both know youíre good for it Mr. Dolan.

Kindest Regards,
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Are you serious with this nonsense? So, you deserve a special refund if your team doesn't play well while the billions of other sports fans around the world get nothing? Gimme a break. There isn't a guarantee that the teams you cheer for will be good. You don't buy an NHL package or pay for cable and sign a contract that states, this contract is only valid if my sports teams don't stink. If you have gotten to that point where you have to write nonsense like that, jump ship and become a BlackHawks fan.

If your letter had a return address that started with

Isiah Thomas

I am sure your letter would be rushed to Mr. Dolan.

Agreed - that's the risk you take when you pay the money. Don't like it? Don't renew next year.

A collection of well written letters from Rangers fans to Mr. Dolan expressing our concerns about the poor construction of this team? That I would whole-heartedly support. But writing a letter so that he can personally reimburse you for a service you paid for? It just comes off as selfish, immature whining.

What a great idea!!! Mind if I borrow a couple key components in your letter for my own?

I'm a lot less eloquent,

Mr. Dolan,
You suck and you're *** up the Rangers!
-Me!

PS: I deserve a refund, here's my bill!

I'm having a tough time picturing Dolan refunding money paid to another party after a slow eight games.

Take it for what its worth, but friends of mine who worked on the renovation have told me Dolan has already reached break-even on the project. Talk about ROI!
