    Chaney is bad choice....

    Yes, I agree. I don't see Chaney turning this team around even though they beat the BUcks the other night. I think Chaney comes cheap and he doesn't challenge Layden and Dolan. I believe these are the reasons. Knicks will be bad for awhile. Dolan is running the Knicks like he runs his business, down to the ground. As long as he continues to hire personal lackies and not someone capable of doing the job,CVC and the Knicks will suffer.

    • if you read The NY Times today (sports pages) you'll see how the CVC spokesman thinks CVC has a better product than satellite due to local content and customer service. The quote is hysterical and shows how out of touch this management team is. Sure, I'll take News 12 and no Yankees on my cable system - HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
      Direc TV (and DISH when the finish negotiating the agreement) will be the only providers for the majority of Yankee games in the New York suburbs, yet that customer service and News 12 will keep subscribers from getting a dish. It's laughable... If they don't sign the Yanks, expect wholesale defections to satellite - not to worry, you'll still have News 12. HAHAHAHAHA

      • Yes the Yankees are coming.They are in negotiation whether to be an additional channel or a Premium channel.
        Soon news to be released shortly.

      • Dman,

        You are so right on. I read that quote in the paper yesterday and nearly spit my lunch across the table. Better service?? Better product??? This guy must be doing some Grade A crack!!

        With DirecTV, I get all the locals, a 1/2 dozen PBS stations and 24-hour PBS Kids that my 2-year old loves, 8 HBO Channles, 3 Cinemax, 10 Starz channels, every basic channel known to man, news and sports to much to mention, and every NFL game during the season. Even with the NFL package, I'm still paying less than I was went I left CVC in August. Oh yes, did I mention digital picture and interactive televison?

        Sure, I miss Lea Tyrell's hot legs and the news bunnies on News 12, but what news did that station really report anyway. And those Metro Channels. Ugh!!

        And coming March 19, the YES Network. Hey ONBELL, for your sake, I hope CVC does get YES. If not, there will be a run on satellite dishes throughout Nassau and Suffolk.

    • Knicks could not go out and get a high profile coach now b/c they don't have great players and have little flexibility due to their cap position to compete. Chaney will hold for and slog through next season, after that, as cap room open up and the Knicks can begin rebuilding in earnest, look for them to bring in a more high profile coahc, perhaps maybe even Vangone again.
