C'mon guys, that conversation died years ago.......the NFL is a global organization. I travel a lot, and when they ask me where I am from, I say NJ. They look at me kind of funny until I say I live 25 KM from NY. Face it, the world knows NY.
But as for the teams stopping the mall, it isn't going to happen. This is just posturing for a seat at the decision making table.......Someone above said it best, this goes away once each team gets their own Team Store in the mall.
And really, is mall traffic really going to impact that bad on game traffic? I think people will learn to stay away from the mall on Sundays, just to avoid the game traffic,not fans avoiding the games because of a little extra mall traffic.
There are really people that never heard of NJ? I mean NJ is really just half a suburb of NYC, half a suburb of Philly, and half a pine baron but I would think most people have heard of it. What's a KM and how many is the stadium from NYC? I'll bet a lot closer than Shea was
