Net-Inspired Beer Boycott Falls Flat

A Brooklyn beer boycott inspired by a brewery's consorting with known Nets' dancers has gone, well, flat. The owner of the Brooklyn Brewery says sales of his Brooklyn Lager--also available at the Meadowlands--have not been hurt "one bit" and the organizer of the boycott admits "it's hard". It all started when critics of Bruce Ratner's planned arena spied four Nets Dancers and Darryl Dawkins at a Brewery-sponsored Nets rally. "Chocolate Thunder" must be pleased.
