The ZagsBlog report indicated that Dolan's "wrath" produced quite a reaction at FOX and the presence of one ad that read "Nothing will change until Dolan sells the team" probably did not go a long way toward slowing his anger.

Adam Zagoria of SNY reported on his blog that Madison Square Garden executive chairman James Dolan had called Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of News Corp., which owns Fox, to complain about the ads.

The orange and blue train was part of Fox Sports 1s "Pick A Side" campaign which had both negative and positive reactions to various sports topics, including the state of the beloved Knicks.

"Today, FS1 featured statements on a New York City subway vehicle meant to reflect the distinct emotions and opinions of passionate sports fans", Fox said in a statement. Another ad, which is on a seat inside a subway vehicle, reads "NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNTIL DOLAN SELLS THE TEAM". While young big man Kristaps Porzingis is a major source of hope, the team has won just one playoff series in the last 15 years. "We regret the tone and are removing the content in its entirety".

Paddock, who worked as an apartment manager and aerospace industry worker over the years, was known as an avid gambler. Also in that hotel room, a computer and a source says a camera, possibly used to record the horrific shooting.

For what it's worth though, the ads are reportedly coming down. They possibly have a license there as well, but it's worth pondering if it requires approval on how those images are going to be used, or if they can do whatever they want with them.
