    I wish we got it, that Stadium looks so much nicer than the tin can we have now and it would have been great taking trains to the game rather than sitting in traffic.

    We (we, as in NYC resident), almost did. If memory serves me right, it came down to the final hour. Funny thing was that the Olympics, not so much the Jets, was the reason why it almost was approved. The Olympics in the city would have been insane!

    Manhattan is congested enough. Thought it would've been kinda cool, a new stadium there would not make much sense. You see how crazy 34th st is on nights when the Knicks play, and that's just an Arena. Imagine a 75,000 seat stadium.

    Touche. That's why I'll be taking NJ transit to the stadium on Monday night. Getting outta there after the game is the P.I.T.A. I'm thinking I'll take the bus back to port authority 42nd st.

    The stadium was a rip off of the taxpayers. For once, the state pols did the right thing by New York State taxpayers. West Side Stadium

    That Stadium would have been huge for NYC- SBs every 4-5 years, Final Fours every few years, College bowl game, concerts, conventions,...

    It was shot down b/c the Dolans paid off politicians so they could keep all the big events at MSG.

    The Jets are the NYC red headed step child and the fat bag-o-wind is running low on rhetoric.
