Which privileged son did a worse job running a franchise and would it be worse to work for – James Dolan or Jeff Wilpon?
Even just a couple of months ago, before hell broke loose, Michael Powell of The New York Times wrote an article about fans of Knicks and Mets who wanted the teams to be sold.
“James Dolan of the Knicks and the Wilpon family, owners of the Mets, have reminded us that even large bags of money cannot overcome bad temper and lack of knowledge,” reads the article.
Anyone who has paid the slightest attention in this century to these orange and blue pies would trust neither Dolan nor Wilpon to make a peanut butter sandwich without setting fire to the house.
But now the people of New York will put their lives in the hands of these men.
Not only Dolan and Wilpon, but also luminaries like the Yankees president Randy Levine, a person so terribly terrible that he is considered a candidate for chief of staff of Donald Trump’s White House, and Kim Pegula, CEO of Buffalo Sabers, who has recently saw 21 layoffs and 104 layoffs, emphasizing “the importance of his family in maintaining his lifestyle.”
All these nightmarish figures from New York’s sports world, as well as Islanders owner Jon Ledecky (congratulations on not being terrible to approach his peers), were named Tuesday by “New York Forward King of Governor Andrew Cuomo” -Apening Advisory Board “.
It is difficult as a normal citizen to analyze a list of 116 mostly unknown names. When you know these are the people the governor will trust to help you get your status back on track, it’s not exactly encouraging when the names you know belong to some of the people you would least like to make decisions about stupid sporting things, let alone matters which will determine whether New York will return to normal life safely or if there will be a second fatal wave of a plague.
