What a stupid idea

This quote comes from a pro-mega stadium article in the Star-Telegram.

"Yankee Stadium, for example, regularly sells out tours to baseball lovers..."

Why are the fans so eager to tour the stadium? Because it is HISTORIC. Will they want to tour a new stadium? Probably, but they surely won't "sell out" those tours, because the interest won't be there.

Right now people will go see the Yanks WIN or LOSE in the present stadium. If they destroy it, sure people will attend games when the Yankees are winning. But when they are losing? Don't bet on it!

By destroying the old stadium and building a new one, even if the new one looks like a blend of the original and present stadiums, the Yankees are cutting off their nose to spite their face.

Boston and Chicago has older stadiums than the Yankees. What do they know that we New Yorkers don't know? Can that fat clown Steinbrenner and his sidelick monkey Randy Levine tell us why?

Only in Moonbat World does the age of a stadium be considered a factor in its popularity. Welcome to the 21st Century. Things don't always go according to what you think! You're not the center of the world (and neither is Stein but that's another story).

Who cares, really, other than you wanting to ward off bulldozers from some park?

Fact is people show up at Yankee Stadium to see the Yankees because without games the main motivation for coming out to a venue is not there. All those tours, in the end, are only a small portion of what brings in the revenues. Those who show up for those tours aren't even representative of Yankee fans, let alone the general populace.

Also, it's a bit funny that you're relaying this information from a news story concerning the Dallas Cowboys! Wow! Like somebody in Texas could really affect things east of the river. :D
