Larry Brown wasn't the first person to blame for last season. he was the middle and the last. The first person was zeke, because LB didn't even want to caoch anymore. He wants to be a gm. But who in they right mind is gonna pass up on 50 million dollars to do something they really don't wanna do?

If you go into a restaurant and they serve you a plate of rotten food with live insects, would you silently eat it and come back for seconds? You'd have to be crazy to let them get away with serving bad food and then pay them to do so even once.

MSG is in the entertainment business. They have been serving up rotten teams for years and raising prices year after year. It is their failure! Why reward them over and over again for serving us crap? Buying tickets says to the management we like your product and are paying you for a job well done.

If you think you are being "loyal" by thanking them for serving up mediocrity by constantly buying tickets "no matter what," you should accept the blame along with Larry Brown, Charles Dolan, Isiah Thomas and the players.

Watch how fast the Knicks improve (or they sell the team to someone who will make the Knicks better) when people stop showing up to games and stop subscribing to MSG. You could write and yell at the Knicks all you want; but the only way Dollan and his crew will pay any attention to you is when we hit them in the pocketbook and they lose revenues and sponsors.

Knick fans have to say "we will buy no more crap" or we are to blame -- even more than Larry Brown!

One thing you have to realize about Larry Brown, and noone can dispute.

1. Detroit Management couldnt wait to get rid of him.
2. Detroit Players were glad he was gone.
3. Knicks management had up to here w/ him.
4. Knicks players were glad he was gone.
5. Noone who played for him in the Olympics liked him, and we only won Bronze.


Larry was a good coach, but maybe he has lost touch w/ todays players. Maybe he has lost him mind.

But if he is so great why is everyone trying to get rid of him recently.

I hope you are right.

I'm not asking you to desert the Knicks. Nor do I intend to to that either.

However, sometimes bad management needs to be forced to change. You do that by not buying tickets year after rotten year.

If you do, you are a masochist and you are encouraging the Knicks to keep failing.
