    Re: Giants, Jets unveil design of new $1.3 billion stadium

    I am much more impressed with the Cowboys new stadium than this one.
    I figured for 1.3 BIL they would get something more than that...than again it is just a preliminary sketch, so who knows how accurate it is.

    wonder what (who) they will find under old Meadowlands

    I agree. The cowboys stadium looks MUCH nicer. It just looks cooler in general. Still, beggars are not choosers. The Vikes need a stadium. For that to happen, the Vikes need to win. It's that simple.

    Then again, how the hell did Detroit and Arizona get their new stadiums?

    Re: Giants, Jets unveil design of new $1.3 billion stadium

    After a bit of research I found the Colts new stadium seats 63,000, has a retractable roof, giant retractable side windows, and what I consider to be a really nice architectural design.

    The price? 675 million. Last I heard Wilf's number was around a billion. No, Lucas Oil won't be the creme de creme of new stadiums, but it is damned nice, and i would love a similar stadium in Minnesota. Is Wilf's asking price too high. Is this real estate maverick being a bit too greedy?

    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!
    The Stadium now is in New Jersey. Nothing has changed.
    I know, hence the word still.
    Have you ever been to the city? It's one train stop away. No one here really even thinks about it.
    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...
    or like when the DETROIT LIONS played in Pontiac, MI . . . about 30 minutes or so NORTH of Detroit!

    When was the deal struck for the Colts stadium?
