It may be easy to say in hindsight that neither team should have done this but did anybody except the ownerships think this was a good idea to see through?

I did not think they needed a new stadium and going to the Steelers/Giants preseason game confirmed that. I don't have a PSL, but I went to that game. Honestly, the only MAJOR upgrade in the stadium are the video boards. I did not walk around the entire stadium but a good portion of it. Yes, there are wider concourses and more places to eat but IMO it is not a huge upgrade over Giants Stadium, which is what you would expect for the cost of it. It probably is a big upgrade for the people who come to the game in suits, but not for the average fan. I feel bad for those people that have paid through the nose for seats. The Mets needed a new stadium and Citi was a major upgrade compared to Shea. I can't say the same for the Meadowlands.

I did think the initial plans, corresponding with the West Side Stadium project that DOA, were a bit out of left field. At least try to bring it back across the border and not let it remain in the middle of that commercial acidic rainbow infestation known as Xanadu. I will say the new building looks nicer than what the original plans entailed, the Jets had a say in that to their credit.

I still feel like the stadium is incomplete, I know within a year the stadium will have a corporate name (just one that will not have an all too offensive past for New Yorkers- good luck) so calling it New Meadowlands feels at the very least wishy-washy especially when I am used to saying Giants Stadium.

It'll always be Giants Stadium.

I wonder if tickets on StubHub are more pricey now because people had to factor in the PSL
