I’m completely blown away.
Not that I listen to the fan a ton, but Maggie Gray does not strike me as a person who’d create a rift between a media entity and a sports team. (Or two for that matter.) That’s exactly what she did according to the New York Post.
I guess it has to do with some things she said a little while back:
“You are a vile piece of trash,” Gray said about the 63-year-old Dolan on the show she hosts with Chris Carlin and Bart Scott. “You let Isiah Thomas call this woman [Anucha Browne Sanders] the b-word so many times she sued your ass, and she won! And then what did you do? In 2015, you brought Isiah Thomas back into the building to run the Liberty of the WNBA. You are a human embodiment of an online troll. People on Twitter couldn’t even come up with something that stupid …
“I might never get back into The Garden, even with a press pass, after this, and I don’t give a crap. I’d rather not step into that building that’s owned by this hypocrite and this disgusting, disgusting human. Yeah, you should have known. You did know. I forgot for 30 seconds just how embarrassing James Dolan is. Never again. Take your stupid song and everything you stand for, and shove it up your colossal rear end. I’m done with the Knicks.”
I really wish she hadn’t apologized. It implies she did something wrong.
Maybe some people think she did, but I don’t think she does. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have said it. Gray’s not Howard Stern, who would say whatever he wanted about anyone back in his prime. She’s careful about how she does her business. Whether you think that’s a good or bad thing doesn’t matter in this instance. What matters is she’s not helping her career by admitting there’s some level of guilt.
As for Dolan, I know nothing about him outside of this. But it sounds like he suuuuuuucksss. Really, really wish Gray stood her ground on this.
