Why the new stadium is sooo important for the Yankees
Here's another very enlightening article in the Daily News (click the title above to read the whole thing).
But start with this excerpt:
"When the Yankees build their new stadium they will be able to deduct some of the building costs from their portion of the revenue-sharing pool, but when the stadium opens in 2009 they should have vast new revenue streams from concessions (up to six times the current stadium retail space) and luxury boxes (with up to three times as many as they have now)."
And all the community that surrounds the stadium has to do is give up their parks and open space to help poor little George out.
