[QUOTE=sg3;3527234]the reason the Mets and Yankees got stadia in NYC is that the Dolans only cared about their monopoly in Manhattan and thus the Dishonorable Crook Sheldon Silver only took millions in bribes from them to singlehandedly vote down the WSS
Interesting, he is also responsible for the Pit still being mostly a vacant empty hole nearly 9 years later as it is his district and I assume not enough bribes have been paid to him to get the rebuilding projects moving at any sort of meaningful pace[/QUOTE]
oh- and i thought it was the fact Shea, while holding cherised memories, was really a sh!thole....
[QUOTE=Bay Ridge Jet;3527364]I meant the Jets are going to host the Vikings on a Sunday night at a later date[/QUOTE]
nice not only do we have the favre connection but LT as well and don't think we forgot about winfield in '04..i can still remember seeing the news on espn showing the Jets signing Winfield and then being so damn annoyed that he decides, or rather his wife, decides to sign with the Vikings :eek: that was a 1st for me ladies and gentlemen.
Jets stomped the vikes in '02 and again in '06 if i'm not mistaken, both @ Minny
Second class citizens as always. I hate this shared stadium nonsense.
Billionaire owns a team and cant gets his own stadium built? Sucks.
Nets? New home alone.
Devils? New home alone.
Every other football team... homes alone.
The two in the biggest media market in all of football? Share a stadium...? Huh?
Detroit has ZERO population left now, but they got a stadium. Its older now but they aint forced to share.
LA has no team but has a stadium for one to play in.
Smaller market teams have their own homes. Jets and Giants gotta share? Is there that much red tape in the northeast?[/QUOTE]
Opening on Monday Night is MUCH more special. Not only does the entire world get to see the stadium for the first time as the Jets home, it will be at night, showing off all the lighting tech they are using to make the stadium unique to each team.
