New York Rangers Fans Are Lashing Out At Owner James Dolan After He Fired The Team’s President And GM
New York Knicks and Rangers owner James Dolan might be one of the most unpopular guys in all of sports. His most recent move will not help that whatsoever.
After the Rangers released a statement to condemn Capitals’ forward Tom Wilson, Dolan made the decision to fire the team’s president John Davidson and general manager Jeff Gorton. While the Rangers said the timing was just a coincidence, many weren’t buying it.

James Dolan’s move to fire Davidson and Gorton amid what appears to be a successful rebuild for the Rangers drew the ire of fans, who already have a distaste for their owner.

This could be one of the most bat-shit things Dolan has ever done. #NYR

The Rangers are very steadily heading in the right direction & if Dolan fired Davidson and Gorton for performance reasons then I think he’s just bored not ruining the Knicks

NYR fans. Don’t read anything besides this:
If this had NOTHING to do with the events that occurred over the past two days, then why in the FUCK wouldn’t they wait until the season ended.
All lies. Dolan was pressured to fire them.

Starting to think James Dolan might not be good at running sports franchises.

Jim Dolan fired this man after two shortened seasons, in which the team was 63-49-11 with the youngest team in the league. pic.twitter.com/BlENzaUcCT

Okay?🤔 I’m confused. What expectations did Dolan have this season? Our team is a bunch of kids! Why not just wait until the end of the week to do this? I’m a big Chris Drury guy but this isn’t fair for Gorton & JD. We have the best prospect pool in the league, no patience? #NYR

James Dolan stayed out of the Rangers way just long enough for us to almost forget what a complete turd in the punchbowl he is.

James Dolan certainly doesn’t have his fan base on his side for this move. But as he’s proven time and time again, he doesn’t care about that at all.
The man is going to continue to run his teams “his way”, even if that way really sucks.
