Jets Tackle the Dolans on Their Own Home Turf.
The Jets are taking the battle with Jim and Chuck Dolan, the Cablevision barons who own Madison Square Garden and oppose a new West Side stadium, to suburban Long Island. Last week, Jets-funded operatives handed out flyers at LIRR stations with a scary close-up of Jim Dolan: “Every year, $11 million that could keep transit fares down pads Cablevision’s deep pockets.” This is the tax bill the company skips thanks to an agreement not to move Garden teams out of town. Why the burbs? “Long Islanders already dislike Cablevision because of soaring cable rates,” says a Jets spokesperson. On November 22, the pro-stadium troops launch a Long Island petition drive urging Albany to revoke MSG’s tax exemption.
