So wait, let me get this straight: buying Madison Square Garden, for whatever exorbitant sum that might cost, is a good idea because it keeps Microsoft from buying a tech company?
The way Yates sees it, Microsoft made a bad deal in 2007 [for aQuantitative], so it should spend money on a sports stadium. Really.
As the first GeekWire article comment hints, there is one key aspect of this whole matter that both Yates and Frank failed to properly touch on. Namely, that MSG has until 2023 to find a new home for Madison Square Garden, most likely not in the “cool” Manhattan that Yates writes about.
