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.
