Only 1 of the 4 sides allows you to exit as its built into a hill, takes forever to get to the parking lots or its limited train service. No escalators, takes 30 minutes to climb to the upper deck.
Do me a favor, describe what you think we "deserved". Draw a picture, post it up. Explain to me how these four areas could be any more Jets-like than they are now:
If you've ever been to other NFL stadiums you'd know that we're on par with the newer stadiums, superior to at least half the league.
I agree with SAR too. I like Met Life stadium. I like it better than Heinz field in pittsburgh. As far as it being in Jersey, that's just how it goes. If there was a legitimate way of having it in New York, I imagine it would of been. It's just not gonna happen.
