Islanders owner Charles Wang calls Coliseum 'dump'

Charles Wang to WFAN regarding the trials and tribulations of owning the Isles: "If I had to do it again, I wouldn't do it."

Not surprising, since he said the team is losing $25 to $30 million a year.

He also called the Nassau Coliseum as "dump."

Nice roundup of video and audio tributes to Harry Kalas.

The fact that the Jets, not the Giants, are scheduled for the final regular season game at Giants Stadium is . . . how do I put this politely? It's insane.

Now the Giants have no choice but to secure a home playoff game in January.

Here is the challenge of being someone whose job includes handling complaints from the public, be it working at the customer service window at Waldbaum's or covering fan-related issues as a sports business/media columnist:

Every person has his or her own issue, and each issue is very important to the person involved. But it often is difficult to separate legitimate concerns expressed by informed consumers from baseless whining by malcontents.

That being said . . . My colleagues and I will do our best to keep an eye on fan-related developments at the two new baseball stadiums in Big Town.

Because that's what newspapers should do and, um, do do.

Enjoy "The Jackie Robinson Story" at 2 p.m. on ESPN Classic.

There's some really weird anti-Communist stuff at the end. If you haven't seen this film, check it out.

Jackie does a decent job playing a sanitized, Hollywood-ized version of himself.
