Article on Jimmy boy and Checketts from Saturday.. interesting

Apparently he didn't allow the former President of MSG inside the building for JD's ceremony. Also, JD wasn't allowed to give a speech.. this guy is a clown

Where does it say that they wouldn't let JD have a speech?

Also, from other reports on this, Dolan is pissed at Checketts because Checketts tried to hire away several Garden employees while they were still working. It doesn't really surprise me that Dolan doesn't look kindly upon him if that's the case.

Lupica is speculating:

"They brought J.D. out on the ice yesterday and he was cheered by the crowd, even if there was no speech. Maybe they were afraid he was going to say something nice about Checketts, who hired him to run the Blues.

We who have lived throught this period of time in the Garden history realize how wrought with failure the Dolan regime has been. But when you read it in black and white print, it's just magnified. What a disgace this ownership is. And he'll never sell. Dolan's having a ball. Evidently fun and happiness is not measured by winning and success for this guy.

Why is this a story?The New York Daily News was the Dave Checketts house organ when Checketts ran the Garden.More of the same same old.Remember when Checketts told his buddy Mike Lupica "How much longer do I have to keep paying Messier for the Cup?" during the summer of 1997 when the Garden and the Messier camp were throwing knives at each other.The Rangers would leak stories to John Dellapina which were supposed to make Messier look like a greedy old man.Dellapina had a story that the Rangers offered Messier 2 years/$11 million when in reality the offer was much less

Gee which paper had this story?The Daily News.No coincedence

Each team is required to give the visiting team 50 tickets for each road game

On Saturday, with the Blues in New York, Checketts made plans to attend the game. But the Blues used up their allotment of 50 tickets on player requests, and when they asked for more tickets for Checketts, the Rangers denied them

As Barry Watkins said the Rangers did not treat the Checketts group any different than any other team.They get 50 tickets and they gave them out but then they wanted more tickets.Well,they can go buy them

According to Mushnick , the Rangers had a suite for JD + family but Checketts and company were denied access by Dolan....
http://www.nypost.com/seven/03052007...l_mushnick.htm

"Davidson was given a suite for the day - but with one restriction: Members of the Blues' new New York-based ownership/management team, the men who used to work for the Garden, including ex-Garden president Dave Checketts, Ken Munoz and Mike McCarthy, were denied entrance."

Hard to believe that some here are defending Dolan after watching what he has done to this franchise.

He couldn't get Checketts a ticket as a professional courtesy? None were available?

You don't think JD would have wanted to say something at his own ceremony? Have you ever seen anyone have a ceremony and not speak?

Some choose this time to rail against Dellapina because he is the messenger. Unbelievable.

Dolan is a no class ass.

God, Dolan needs to grow the F-up. I mean really if you give JD a box for the game then let him have whoever the F%^& he wants in the box. And if little Jimmy is so mad that some of his guys went to StL to work with Checketts he should be mad at himself because most people don't quit if they are being treated well or paid well. And if it is an upward move that he couldn't match, like JD, he should be happy for them not bitter A-hole.

I hung out with a former member of the Rockettes over the summer. Dolan runs Radio City, too, and, having met and negotiated contracts with him face-to-face, she confirmed what we all think of him. He's a man-child who has never grown up. His dad won't let him run the big parts of the Cablevision business, so he treats the sports franchises and Radio City like his personal little toys; like a kid pretends to be the general of a bunch of GI Joes. Meanwhile, the only thing he really cares about is his silly rock band.

Well going by the SI article the guy is very loyal to his friends. Ask Sather or Isaiah, and there are probably some other ppl we dont know of, and theyll have great things to say about Dolan.

A rich weirdo is always an easy target, especially one who owns struggling sports franchises. But I would guess, like in most cases, the truth lies somewhere between what all the haters say and what a Sather would say.

from the SI article he donates to a lot of charities and like they said above he is very loyal to his guys, and it seems like people do like him

MSG employees receive free cable/internet various other perks

he is a genuinely decent guy when you interact with him

This is why I can't get too excited by any short-term success the Rangers might have. Because I konw that over the long-haul, Dolan is too incompetent as an owner to create a winning culture for this organization. And it starts with his blind loyalty to Sather.

I have a lot of problems with Dolan, but not giving Checketts a ****ing ticket is not one of them.

The guy is RICH. Buy a ticket, you cheap ****. Don't leak it to the media to keep your grudge going.

It's not an issue of money. It's an issue of class and being a gracious host.

The article specifically says that Checketts asked Dolan for more tickets when the team already used up their allotted ticket number.

Dolan did the right thing here as he showed no preference to a member of another ownership group. And good for him! He SHOULDN'T have given out another various number of free tickets.

In the article they basically say that they bought tickets off of StubHub .com.

I don't understand why people are faulting Dolan for not letting a millionaire in the arena for free.

Than the Blues should've used their allotted tickets more wisely. It's an issue of the Blues being greedy.

And you know darn well that I'd never really support Dolan, but he was in the right on this issue.
