    Giants, Jets unveil design of new $1.3 billion stadium

    Giants, Jets unveil design of new $1.3 billion stadium

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants and New York Jets broke ground Wednesday on the first stadium to be jointly owned by two NFL teams and unveiled how architects plan to make two competing teams feel at home in a $1.3 billion stadium.

    "Ensuring that the stadium would feel like home to both teams and both groups of fans was our goal and also one of the biggest challenges in the design of the stadium," said Steve Tisch, chairman and executive vice president of the New York Giants.

    To do that, the stadium will feature an eight-story mega display, called the "Great Wall," with 400-foot-long by 40-foot-high panels featuring either team's logo or neutral colors for non-football events.

    ...
    The funny part is, it will still be in New Jersey, not New York!

    No state money, either.

    The teams cleared a large hurdle last month when each completed separate $650 million financing deals. CitiCorp is financing the Jets' portion, while investment banks Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers are financing the Giants' deal.

    The teams also received a financial boost earlier this year when NFL owners approved $300 million in loans for stadium work.

    Have you ever been to the city? It's one train stop away. No one here really even thinks about it.

    I wish Ziggy would get a deal done on our new stadium. There is no way in hell I'm becoming a Jets or Giants fan. They are both almost as bad as Green Bay fans.

    I have not, and I know it is close.
    But is still isn't in New York, either the state or the city.
    That would be like the Minnesota Vikings moving to Fargo (which is just across the river from Minnesota) but still calling them the Minnesota Vikings...

    Good point. It's funny that when you say New York, I immediately think of the city... there is a whole state they could have built the stadium in.

    It's because most Giants and Jets fans (or at least the highest concentration) are in the city, and Manhattan is far too cramped for a stadium of that size. I'm surprised they are building the new Nets stadium in Brooklyn (about a mile from my apartment no less... but I will be a Brooklyn Nets fan). There is nothing in East Rutherford but open land, so I guess it makes sense in that respect.

    And I hear there are some good people in Fargo, along with some beautiful scenery.

    Do you have any point at all here other than trying to pick a fight with the topic starter? I cannot see why you're "one step away" ... you offer nothing but angst.
