I think that the stadium is a good idea. When i first heard about it, i was like, 'good greif, build a museum or something'. But its going to generate money for the city itself and for the city economy, its going to create a lot of jobs to build it, its bringing the superbowl to the city, and might bring the olympics to the city.
Also, lets be clear. The organized resistance to the stadium is from MSG. They are opposed because it'd be competition for their business. MSG also runs cablevision. They've pumped their anti-stadium ads onto tv, and not permited pro stadium ads. Thats called a conspiracy, via a monopoly. And after spending all that money, they haven't been able to convince the that the stadium is 'bad'. They're still the only ones really against it, and have only been able to get a few low level city politicians to weakly support them.

I say, build the stadium. And I am an upstate New Yorker who commutes to the City. I will help pay for it also, and I'm all for it. Hey, gotta spend money to make money. Think of what a stadium like this could do for the local economy. Besides, they're the New York Jets, not the New Jersey Jets. And I would love to go there and see this new stadium whenever my Bengals come into town...

This is just insane. Reducing basic services and wasting so much cash at the same time
