New York Knicks owner James Dolan – also the president and CEO of Cablevision –  goes full Dick Montfort on a longtime fan who questioned his competence in an email:

Mr Bierman

You are a sad person. Why would anybody write such a hateful letter. I am.just guessing but ill bet your life is a mess and you are a hateful mess. What have you done that anyone would consider positive or nice. I am betting nothing. In fact ill bet you are negative force in everyone who comes in contact with you. You most likely have made your family miserable. Alcoholic maybe. I just celebrated my 21 year anniversary of sobriety. You should try it. Maybe it will help you become a person that folks would like to have around. In the mean while start rooting.for the Nets because the Knicks dont want you.

Respectfully

James Dolan

Filed under: Crisis Communications

Restaurant chain Chili’s is playing some defense after it apparently failed to conduct its due diligence before agreeing to support the National Autism Association, a non-profit group that has linked vaccinations to autism in some cases.
