Mr. Dolan, It Is A Lockout

via Joe DeLessio of New York Magazine,

Here's Rangers owner Jim Dolan answering a question in Billboard magazine during a music-related interview:

Are you concerned that Barclays might compete with you for bookings?

My biggest problem right now is the [NHL] hockey strike, which could put a lot of holes in our calendar. But assuming we have a whole hockey season, we're booked — we don't have any dates [for 2013]. So I mean, in this marketplace there's room for other venues to do well and they seem to be. It's a nice venue — if it makes concert-going more appealing to the marketplace, great. That just makes the pie bigger.

Now, we hate to jump on one word in an interview, but we're going to do it anyway. Jim, if you're reading this, NHL players are not on strike. They are being locked out by the owners. YOU ARE ONE OF THE OWNERS. But you knew that and just misspoke, right?

James Dolan is another idiot spawn of a succesful man.  He would be unemployed if not for this accident of birth.
