The odd thing about Kroenke though is that he doesn't seem all that interested in playing with this particular toy. For the Americans here, you know the plight of my Knicks over the last 2 decades. Their owner, James Dolan is an absolute moron who meddles, interferes and won't ever sell the team because even without success(though we are having an unexpectedly great season, making the playoffs with a real chance of advancing) fans pack the arena every night. What James Dolan does entirely differently to Kroenke with his toy is spend money. He has nowhere near the net worth of Dolan yet he spares no expense trying to improve the team. He's still a buffoon but the lack of success is more down to stupidity, ego and entrusting the wrong people to run the team than a lack of financial effort. He's gone out and spent the maximum allowable on the roster virtually every year as well as always making a huge financial commitment to both coaches and executives for both the Knicks and the Rangers. Right or wrong, he actually gives a toss about his toys. Kroenke really doesn't and it's clear.That’s all a bit of an irrelevance really. They valued us at €1.8bn euros last year so if we’re well down on that figure this year and Ek just offered to pay more than that what does it matter in the real world? You can’t put a valuation on these things when billionaires will pay whatever it takes to have a shiny toy.
