Get a god damn bus from certain points in BK / queens / Manhattan so its not a fucking disaster getting to and from stadium.

 

Every single time i bring someone we have a blast but they don't like coming again cause its a joke how long it takes.

 

thats my 2 cents

Yup. Try LIRR to NJT to PATH or walk. It's like a saga getting from Long Island to RBA. I would love to be able to drive, but wouldn't dare. At least you can have a few beers on the train.

LIRR trains are on the same tracks as NJT.
Unfortunately, no one implemented a hybrid power system, so LIRR trains could shift from third rail paddles to NJT overhead catenary wires, or vice versa.
Also, LIRR has 4 East River tunnels to Penn Station, while NJT & Amtrak share only 2 Hudson River tunnels.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

He is correct. Time he called us out, along with NE.
Perhaps even the other owners, at annual meetings.
Some are spending hundreds of millions.
Q: What are you spending to improve your team?
On and off the field!

Not for nothing, but Garber green lit a lot of these, and should take a lot of the ownership on this very foreseeable problem. Let's all check in on all the other new league teams in 10 years after their communities have worn past their honeymoons and many are just middling mediocre clubs.

Philly should have never built that stadium in Chester, it should have been built in the same complex as the other stadiums in Philly. It's easy to drive to or take the train and there's actually restaurants to eat at if tailgating isn't your thing.

Orlando started off great with drawing sold out crowds but years of sucking has kept people away now.

New England is in the same boat we were in at Giants Stadium. They would probably pack the place out if they could somehow build a stadium that's somewhere actually in Boston.

A lot of these teams will have issues in the long run once the newness factor wears off if they are putting out bad teams every year.

Houston built a beautiful new stadium. Still draws shit crowds.

San Jose built a beautiful new stadium. Still draws shit crowds.

DC is not much better.

I'll be gobsmacked if the Fire moving to Soldier field does anything for that team. Same for the new plans for Columbus.

 

These towns know what the product is. The shiny new pennies in the league are going to tarnish. It will be very interesting to see where the league is at when it can't expand anymore any there's no more fresh faced plastic fanbases to promote the league on.
