James Dolan is consistent: he always manages to get it wrong

Breaking News:

Citing the recent success of facial recognition technology Maxwell Smart a barring a lawyer/Girl Scout leader at the entrance to his Radio City Music Hall before the Christmas show, Garden boss Jim Dolan will soon ban opposing NBA and NHL teams from playing at Madison Square Garden.

According to Dolan’s office, opposing teams “pose an organized and ongoing threat to defeat and eliminate MSG teams from the postseason, affecting our profitability.”

Therefore, Dolan’s Garden will no longer host any matches that hope to defeat the companies in the garden. Does facial recognition appear like Sidney Crosby? He’s leaving! “Are you all with the Minnesota Timberwolves? Get back on the bus!”

Okay, so I made this all up. Work for Colin Cowherd and Stephen A. Smith!

But I am convinced: Dolan’s main problem is his consistency. It will always hit the wrong button. And money is no object!

From conspicuously sitting in the front row, the last place a host would choose to those who pay a fortune for seats, to ignoring the all-time voice of MSG, Marv Albert, during his last trip at the Garden to call a Knicks game, he’s predictably stubborn, vindictive and tyrannical.

He doesn’t know how to disarm the audience by choosing to do the nicest thing, without including anything. He always chooses to be seen as vindictive, petty and petty.

I know him well enough to know that he wants better for his image and that he gets his history as the ultimate authority on decisions that annually create teams from mediocre to worse.

I don’t think he’s the bad guy he chooses to be. In fact, when he’s not firing those he brought in for his expertise after rejecting his expertise, he’s quietly performed magnanimous acts, most notably funding a cure for pancreatic cancer. And I even enjoyed his company.

Still, the paranoia that has fueled MSG’s networks has turned welcome and reliably beloved television into nerve centers cowed by fear, even dismissing a meaningful story from the Garden because it might not reflect well on Dolan’s reign .

Note that Jeremy Lin – “Linsanity” – was written from the MSG retrospective of the 21st century show and tell, that Albert was erased from the history of the garden and that the night that John Andariese, fading from dementia, retired as Knicks. ‘dear analyst, Dolan never moved from his seat to greet Andariese and his family before, during or after the farewell ceremony.

Fan-friendly, media-friendly Bob Gutkowski, president of the Garden when the Rangers, in 1994, finally won the Stanley Cup and the Knicks were one win short of the NBA championship; Gutkowski would soon leave as Dolan entered, he was purposefully uninvited when the Garden celebrated the 25th anniversary of winning the Cup under Gutkowski.

In 2007, a Blues-Rangers game brought Rangers goalkeeper and TV analyst John Davidson back to the Garden as Blues chairman. His return included a formal salute for his MSG service.

However, new members of the Blues’ management team, former Garden employees such as chairman Dave Checketts and MSG Network boss Mike McCarthy, were refused entry.

This useless and counterproductive consistency has become Dolan’s key. No one expects him to do what is right, what reflects well on him. That’s his plan and he’s sticking to it, or at least sticking to it.

This year has banned members of a law firm that is suing MSG Entertainment on behalf of 24 Knicks and Rangers season ticket holders pitched in to resell their tickets, often the only way to pay for tickets.

The firm’s 60 lawyers have been barred from entering any MSG Entertainment-owned venue, including the Garden, Radio City, the Hulu Theatre, the Beacon Theater and the Chicago Theatre, in, yes, Chicago.

How does this benefit Dolan? it doesn’t As a legal statement, it could damage his defense as excessively petty and vindictive.

If the plaintiffs’ attorneys had still been welcome to attend the Garden events, especially after purchasing tickets prior to the night’s facial recognition lobby rejection, they would have already won points based on good faith conduct, nothing personal.

But Dolan continues to rely on his vengeful instincts, with no foresight applied, good advice rejected or unheeded. He wants to be known as the best, he just doesn’t know how. He remains convinced of his inherited superior position and little-considered convictions.

And he still seems unaware that the worst place to finish in any high-stakes poker game, and the court of public opinion, is second.

Following the Jets’ home loss to the Lions on Sunday, CBS’ Ian Eagle noted that it would be a “short week for the Jets” as they play the Jags at home on Thursday.

To this, Eagle cabin mate Charles Davis, another TTM sufferer, talks too much, said, “And this one is going to be so big!”

Huge! So much so that tickets on the secondary market were going for as much as $15, a fraction of their face value.

Earlier on Sunday, in the World Cup final, Argentina went up 3-2 in extra time, on a shot that just crossed the goal line before being played by a defender a little late.

On Fox, analyst Stu Holden, another who talked until he conditioned us to stop listening, described it through repetition, based on a single-target cliché that is often clearly inaccurate for having become a cliché:

“That ball is absolutely in the back of the net!”

But it wasn’t at all. That it wasn’t even close to the back of the net—maybe only a yard above the goal line—was ignored, as if we couldn’t see any better.

Then there was Cowboys-Jags on Fox, swallowed almost whole by TTM analyst Greg Olsen, who enlightened us with such applicable observations as, “Someone in Dallas has to make a play.”

FacePlant Vodka. Ask for it by name!

And then it was over: With the end of the World Cup on Fox came the end of that promo that ended with what clearly sounded like the first notes of Phil Spector’s enduring 1963 hit “Then He Kissed Me.” , sung by The Crystals. After three weeks, I finally stopped singing it.
