Statement from the Madison Square Garden Company on the video referenced in a court filing today by Charles Oakley's lawyers that allegedly shows James Dolan giving a ‘thumbs up' after Oakley was ejected from MSG: "Today's claims are nothing more than Oakley's latest attempt to distract from the real reasons why he was ejected. We like the videos – they show what actually happened, which is why Oakley's lawyer continues to fight to exclude them from the court case. As opposed to the edited and manipulated video posted by Oakley's counsel, we filed the entire unedited video with the Court months ago. As we've stated before, we believe this suit has no merit and should be dismissed."
