'Fire John Idzik' creators start 'Knicks4Sale' site

The fed up Jets fans who brought you FireJohnIdzik.com have set their sights on a new scourge: Knicks owner James Dolan.

Four New Jersey residents, including Jason Koeppel and his brother Jared, have launched Knicks4Sale.com, which says, "Hey Dolan: Sell the Knicks ... buy the Nets!" on the top of the front page. It was inspired by the nasty email Dolan wrote in response to a letter from a longtime fan and calls for donations to put up a billboard right outside Madison Square Garden.

Jason told ESPNNewYork's Mike Mazzeo about the letter that made them create the site:

"It was the 'Idzik news conference moment.' That's what we called it — when we decided that management and ownership had gone too far and it was time for the fans to do something. This email that he had the nerve to send to one of his fans was the moment. We talked last night — the four of us — and just said, you know what, we've had enough and we've gotta do something."

Their goal is to raise $20,000 in the remaining 59 days left in the campaign. They've already raised over $200 as of Tuesday morning.

Can't wait to see the tiny banners droning around The Garden.
