2014 NHL Stanley Cup Final - Practice Sessions

Yesterday we told you of New York Knicks’ owner James Dolan’s latest bonehead move when he banned the New York Daily News from their post-draft press conference.

Yeah, thing is, you can’t do that with the papers promoting the sport as well as anything not called the Internet.

Which is why Dolan and the Knicks were hit with a $50,000 fine yesterday for violating league rules regarding equal access for media after the Daily News was not permitted to cover the team’s press conference last Friday. In a statement, the league said that the Knicks have agreed to abide by the rules in the future.

The Knicks have been criticized for their actions, which are rooted in Dolan’s long-running dislike of the paper’s Knicks coverage.

Of course, he has yet to give the paper anything worth covering.
