The people who brought you firejohnidzik.com are trying to help the local sports scene again.
Four New York sports fans decided they had heard enough after Knicks owner James Dolan told an unhappy Knicks fan to start rooting for the Nets.
CBS Sports reported that brothers Jared and Jason Koeppel, along with their friends Greg Koehler and Dan Filowitz have started Knicks4Sale.com, in the hope of getting Dolan to sell the NBA team. The four men started firejohnidzik.com to get the then-Jets GM fired- and they succeeded.
It’s not known how much effect the movement had in getting Idzik fired, but the bottom line is they got results. It’s not likely that Dolan will sell, but the website and their track record will help.
The Koeppels and their friends have three categories on their website. Knicks4Sale lists terrible coaching, incompetent management, and awful personnel as reasons for Dolan to sell the Knicks and buy the Nets. They list front office hiring of Scott Layden and Isaiah Thomas as Knicks mistakes, along with the free agent signing of Jerome James.
