Deal Brings MSG Back To Time Warner Cable, But Knicks Return With A Loss
Linsanity is over.
Sources said Time Warner was overwhelmed with phone calls yesterday from subscribers demanding a rebate for the lost MSG games.
Word of the deal came hours after City Council Speaker Christine Quinn took to Twitter, urging cable subscribers to tell Time Warner to “demand a refund.”
The previous day, Quinn wrote to the warring TV execs, threatening to haul them into public hearings.
“Now, a million more New Yorkers will be able to go Linsane in the privacy of their own living room,” Quinn said.
Both Time Warner and MSG acknowledged the help of Cuomo, Stern and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in bringing about what was called a verbal tentative agreement.
“I was close to threatening to bring them to Albany and put them in the Red Room,” Cuomo joked, alluding to the executive chamber in the Capitol.
However, Postup Prince stated the words I agree with " CHRISTINE QUINN FOR MAYOR OF NEW YORK!" She's got both our votes.
TAZMAN departs The Knicks with class as in the Tweet below:

We wish you well TAZ. Everyone knows MDA never gave you a chance. Everyone knows Mike Bibby should have been cut.
Be that it may, I hope you don't come back to haunt us like ARIZA.
Now it is time to move on. Welcome JR Smith. Lets look forward to Melo coming back along with Barron Davis and
the addition of JR Smith. Last nights loss was so predictable... and that ERA is over. Soon the MDA ERA will be over.
LETS GO KNICKS
