Cablevision's role in the West Side Stadium debate

In 2004 and 2005, Cablevision provided funding for an advertising campaign against the proposed construction of a stadium on the West Side of Manhattan supported by the Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg. The stadium would have principally served the New York Jets, and was an essential part of New York City's failed bid for the 2012 Olympics. Cablevision had offered a competitive bid that far exceeded the bid of the Jets for property owned by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, where the new stadium would have been located. The plans to build the stadium were abandoned in June 2005 when the New York State Assembly under the leadership of Speaker Sheldon Silver refused to provide state subsidies for the project. 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Carriage disputes

Cablevision earned notoriety in the New York City area for playing hardball with the YES Network in 2002 and 2003. Cablevision refused to carry the Yankees' official television network, depriving Yankee fans of telecasts of most of their games for the entire 2002 season. Pressure from federal and state officials finally convinced Cablevision to sign a carriage deal just before the 2003 season started.
