The New York Post’s Marc Berman reports that Broadway’s long-running suckfest has finally generated something approaching civil disobedience ; to wit, a group calling themselves KF4L — no relation to those dudes from the KLF who burned a million pounds — have scheduled what you might call a Million Mongo March on MSG for two weeks from today.
In a statement, the organizers wrote the rally is being staged because of “Dolan’s failure to allow knowledgeable basketball people the autonomy/power to make basketball related decisions…His insistence on overriding the opinions of his basketball people by bidding against himself in negotiations and overpaying in trades.’’
The statement also took issue with “the rehiring of Steve Mills who has never been in the GM role before and presided over one of the most embarrassing eras in Knick history.’’
It went on to add Mills “has yet to speak to the media or fans about the state of the team since he came back. The fans deserve explanations.’’
In conclusion, the statement read: “We understand Dolan will not sell. We understand change may not come of this. We just want our voices heard. We want to remind Dolan and the NBA that our voices matter. We buy the tickets, the jerseys, the NBA League Pass subscriptions. We are frustrated. We are tired. We deserve better.’’
Before anyone suggests something underhanded, I think the statement above is far too well written to have been the work of Brett Yormark.
