James Dolan, owner of the New York Rangers and the New York Knicks has always been known as a brash man who's never been afraid to make headlines and it sounds like he's found his latest reason to be outraged. This time, his target: The New York State Liquor Authority.

Dolan, according to an article written by NBC New York may ban sales of alcohol at upcoming New York Rangers game(s)in response to questions involving the use of facial recognition inside Madison Square Garden . Take a look:

A team of lawyers who are suing Dolan's business being banned from any sporting event at MSG, this prompted the State Liquor Authority to open an investigation, which Dolan didn't take kindly to, thus the threat to ban alcohol.
Dolan said of the situation: The SLA is way, way beyond their skis...they're being extremely aggressive and they're saying 'We're going to take away your liquor license.' So I have a little surprise for them. What we're gonna do, right, is we're going to pick a night, maybe a Rangers game, and we're gonna shut down all the liquor and alcohol in the building.

Dolan then likened his situation to the God Father insinuating that local government is trying to push him around, adding that even with the ban of alcohol, fans will still fill MSG:
In typical Dolan fashion, he added that "they would post flyers at stations where beer is normally sold that feature a picture of State Liquor Authority CEO Sharif Kabir, which will include his email and phone number, and he would instruct fans to 'tell [Kabir] to stick to his knitting and to do what he's supposed to be doing

One things for certain, you should never cross Dolan, if you do, he'll bring the fight to your doorstep
