They show alot of those anti-smoking ad's on MSG..but I see those on every channel now...earlier in the year they showed endless Hummer ads, but those have stopped for the most part..yeah there really aren't alot of outside commercials anymore. I don't exactly think they have a ton of sponsors knocking down the door to advertise for the Rangers and Knicks, but with the money they have, I'm pretty sure they aren't in any sort of financial trouble.
The Knicks ads last year were ok..they were better than those dumb ones this year with the random "fans" telling stories. The Bobby Granger ads are really overplayed - and I only see the Shanahan ad and the Kaspar one anymore.
The spots with the "fans" are painful. Like any real Knick fan would be losing themselves over this team in a commercial. Then we have the guy from 2002-03, who I'll never forget, blurting out that Bure would score 70 goals. This when scoring was at like a 40 year low (the league leader that year had less than 50) and when Bure's knees were betraying him. But hey, if people hear some paid "fan" talking about someone scoring 70 goals for the Rangers 400 times in a commercial they're bound to tune in.
I dont think ill ever get sick of the caveman ones. IM totally sick of the ******* Verne Troyer (Mini-me) ones though.

The Geico commericals are awful. Every single one of them. The caveman ones arent funny, the hired actor ones are annoying as hell, and the gecko ones make me want to kill myself. I cant stand them. I just cant.
