Ads bashing Knicks on subway will be taken down

The ads, wrapped around a subway that goes to and from Times Square, was to promote a show that asked fans to "pick a side".

The ad actually pushed the FS1 "Embrace Debate" in the most literal way possible, with one side of the subway auto emphasizing all of the criticism of the Knicks in recent years and the other focused on the positive view.

The same day that a bold FS1 subway ad in NY first surfaced calling the Knicks "hopeless" comes word that the wrap is coming down. Seats displayed phrases like, "Sit here if you blame Melo" and "Sit here if you blame Phil". That call set off a "sh*tstorm internally at Fox", one source reported.

Senate Intel Heads Say Trump-Russia Collusion Still an Open Question
Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, held a press conference to a packed room of journalists on Capitol Hill.

The "hopeless" side of the train includes photos of Joakim Noah and Tim Hardaway Jr. They also added, via ESPN's Darren Rovell, that they plan to take down all ads soon. Images of the anti-Knicks side of the train started circulating yesterday afternoon, but truth is the other side of the train had the Knicks painted in a more positive light. While one side of the train auto featured positive sentiments about the Knicks, the other side wasn't so kind, especially when it came to the team's owner, James Dolan.

The "HOPEFUL" argument featured a picture of Kristaps Porzingis, expected to be the centerpiece of the team after the trade of Carmelo Anthony.

Knicks owner Jim Dolan called Rupert Murdoch on Tuesday and was "furious" about the new Knicks' Hopeless ad campaign sponsored by FS1 that is running in New York City subways, an industry source said. Still, they're pretty aggressive, particularly considering that they're in the Knicks' home city.
