    Could the right candidate become the next Knicks coach?

    Would the right candidate want to become the next Knicks coach?

    No, you won't be the Knicks next head coach. But for sure, you're going to have to tell your staffers to suck off the next Knicks coach, no matter how badly the team performs.

    OK, if I'm MSG management, and I'm fighting charges of a misogynistic workplace, I'm not sure I'm putting "male audience" in my job ad.

    Clearly, the brain surgeons at MSG haven't yet learned that women may watch sports.

    I'm sure they have their demographics report that supports this. I used to read Cosmopolitan -- my former brother-in-law used to say he "wants to know how they think" (which did him a lot of good; they wound up divorced) -- and I understood the mag was geared to women although I found the stories interesting. MSG probably could have left this unsaid, but of course they're going to focus on a male audience.

    And, Frank, I'm assuming anyone applying for the gig would also know that. I don't know that it's intelligent to brand it a 'male audience' with all that's happened. It doesn't say 'largely male.'

    Also, considering how paranoid they are, it's laughable that the word "communications" ends up on any kind of job posting.

    Do you have to accept a ride in Stephon Marbury's truck?

    They didn't list ability to use a Blackberry as a requirement.
