oh boo hoo NYC is on the hook for billions in overtime for all the national and international events in the city - starting with the UN, every time the President visits, everything in between, and ending with municipal cops having to fight international terrorists. Cry me a river.
and when you make a 'threat' there is some kind of condition, like the word 'if' followed by --- the demand. Did they say they'll boycott unless - something - or, we may just boycott? If we feel like it?
The Game is in NJ not NYC.
The Mayors are following their Governors lead with:
This tactic has worked incredibly well for Governor Christie so… why not?
PS I think they are justified. They just want a little cash for their time and the ware and tare on their equipment.
Don't blame the mayors, they got screwed on this. Quasi public authority owns the stadium so the municipality can't tax it.
Up here the two towns Wretham and Foxboro supply the police but Kraft has to pay them. The stateys on RT1 get paid from the parking revenue as the state get 1/2 of the lot revenues. Gillette Stadium and Patriot place pay direct municipal taxes. If the same arrangement was in NJ. the mayors would not be complaining.
it is the corrupt state government not the municipality at fault.
Is this a common occurrence in the cities that have previously hosted Super Bowls? I mean, did the local governments of New Orleans, Miami, etc. partake in similar grandstanding or withhold services?
Population of East Rutherford - about 9,000
Population of New York City - 8,200,000
Seems like a great comparison
Ya can’t have your pizza and eat it too
and it's not just E. Rutherford, the press release names Carlstadt and Secaucus which adds about 22,000 more people, and it sounded like there were 5 towns altogether.

EAST RUTHERFORD — Authorities and legislators want to crack down on prostitution and sex trafficking ahead of the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, the Record reported.
New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa's office has communicated with Louisiana and Indiana officials to find out how they addressed trafficking.
Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said his office would likely sweep for human trafficking before the Super Bowl. And Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Englewood) introduced a bill to impose a $25,000 fine for anyone convicted of a crime linked to trafficking.
A multi-agency task force arrested 85 people on charges of human trafficking, prostitution, pandering, narcotics and weapons charges ahead of the Super Bowl in New Orleans, the Times-Picayune reported. Police rescued five women allegedly brought to New Orleans to work as prostitues against their will.
Analogy (from Greek ἀναλογία, analogia, "proportion") is a cognitive process of transferring information or meaning from a particular subject (the analogue or source) to another particular subject (the target), and a linguistic expression corresponding to such a process. In a narrower sense, analogy is an inference or an argument from one particular to another particular, as opposed to deduction, induction, and abduction, where at least one of the premises or the conclusion is general. The word analogy can also refer to the relation between the source and the target themselves, which is often, though not necessarily, a similarity, as in the biological notion of analogy.
The state of NJ is getting much of the financial windfall from the Super Bowl, therefore the state will provide the added services needed.
