    [rQUOTEr]Subject: I have been a knicks fan since 1952

    At one stage I thought that you did a wonderful thing when you acquired EVERYTHING from your dad. However, since then it has been ALL DOWN HILL. Your working with Isaiah Thomas & everything else regarding the Knicks. Bringing on Phil Jackson was a positive beginning, but lowballing Steve Kerr was a DISGRACE to the knicks. The bottom line is that you merely continued to interfere with the franchise.

    As a knicks fan for in excess of 60 years, I am utterly embarrassed by your dealings with the Knicks. Sell them so their fans can at least look forward to growing them in a positive direction Obviously, money IS NOT THE ONLY THING. You have done a lot of utterly STUPID business things with the franchise. Please NO MORE.

    Respectfully,

    [Aaron Bierman's dad][/rQUOTEr]

    Mr. Bierman,

    You are a sad person. Why would anybody write such a hateful letter. I am.just guessing but ill bet your life is a mess and you are a hateful mess. What have you done that anyone would consider positive or nice. I am betting nothing. In fact ill bet you are negative force in everyone who comes in contact with you. You most likely have made your family miserable. Alcoholic maybe. I just celebrated my 21 year anniversary of sobriety. You should try it. Maybe it will help you become a person that folks would like to have around. In the mean while start rooting.for the Nets because the Knicks dont want you.

    Respectfully,


    James Dolan[/rQUOTEr]

    Mr Owner sounds as if he wrote this under some undue influential intoxicant.

    We buying the poor spelling from Dolan? Either way, if it is Dolan, good for him. The letter is asinine if the goal of writer was to have a dialog.

    I am. Money has no correlation with intelligence, especially as that money gets older. Although I do remain skeptical about Dolan's alleged 21 years of abstinence. I mean, have you seen that guy's concert video?

    Dolan is worth over $1billion dollars and can't afford a computer with spellcheck?

    Ironically, you would have think Dolan was hammered in order to do something this stupid.

    So despite their record this season and their owner writing such letters, NY Garden is still selling out each game?

    He probably wrote it in crayon and someone on his staff transcribed it.

    I can't believe Dolan doesn't have someone whose job is to read and reply fan emails.
