THE FACE OF GREED
James Dolan is holding a gun to the heads of Millions of Time Warner Cable customers! Manhattan-ites cannot watch a promising Knick team after all these years of "Chucking and Sucking." Here's the basic breakdown of the breakdown: MSG Networks removed its sports channels from Time Warner Cable lineups this morning, depriving New York sports fans of many of the Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, Sabres and Devils games. It is the second time in 15 months that MSG Networks has done this to New York-area fans, having removed their channels from DISH Network subscribers in September 2010.
“We had a deal within reach earlier this year,” said Mike Angus, Senior Vice President, Content Acquisition, for Time Warner Cable. “Despite agreeing to the asked for 6.5% price increase on rates that MSG themselves deemed as fair market rates just last year, MSG reneged on the deal and instead, demanded a whopping 53% increase and refused to negotiate further."
I believe Dolan will lose big on this as I have contacted Direct TV and will drop TWC if services are not restored within 48 hours! Dolan will lose because I will only
watch MSG when no other option is available. NBA league pass? Not an option due to every Knick Home game being "Blacked out." My soul purpose is to not miss one Knicks game. However, ESPN, TNT and NBC will carry 40% of the Knicks remaining games. When they do MSG will not be on my Screen. I amjust one voice of NYC'S Millions who will follow my very path. As far as Going to the Games in the Garden? Even though I can secure free tickets..I will not spend one dime in the Garden of Greed. I can see the "Worlds Most Famous Arena" moniker changed forever to "The GARDEN OF GREED." Even if your not a Knicksfanatics Blog Member,
PLEASE STOP BY TO VENT YOUR ANGER IF YOU'VE BEEN LOCKED OUT AGAIN THIS SEASON DUE TO JAMES DOLAN'S GREED!
