GUTKOWSKI LOOKS BACK AT THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS ARENA
Published September 8, 1995
Former MSG President Bob Gutkowski says power corrupted him and he thinks the same can be said for current and past MSG figures Pat Riley, Dave Checketts, Mike Keenan and Neil Smith, according to Steve Jacobson in NEWSDAY. Jacobson writes of a recent lunch he had with Gutkowski when he quoted Shakespeare and noted: "All of us at a certain level start to have 'the disease of me.'" On Pat Riley, Gutkowski said it was the "best time for Riley to go," but he criticized his exit "by fax." Jacobson writes Gutkowski also "resented" Checketts' attempt to "bypass him" in the corporate structure. Gutkowski also blames the sale of MSG to ITT/Cablevision for Keenan's exit. Gutkowski: "If the Garden hadn't been up for sale, I believe I could have kept both (Keenan and Smith) to try to repeat" (NEWSDAY, 9/8).
