    Ugh. The beginning of the reign of king george, aka boss bluster. They won a few championships in spite of his maniacal ways, his constant meddling, the hirings-firings-rehirings, the constant threats to move to jersey. Seven WS wins in 37 years? Given the Yanks championship runs of the past, I'm not impressed. No Series appearances from '82-'96. Talk about the lean years. Oh thats right-"We won more games during the 1980's than any other team." Thanks george. And lest we forget, the man who moved the team out of YANKEE STADIUM and into fakee stadium, the disney/vegas monstrosity across the street. Unforgivable.
    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

        Yeah thanks george for the rich-boy architectural mess of a stadium, and for the big empty space across the street.

            The new stadium is comfortable. It does not have the history. It is a replica. Nothing more. They needed to build it on the same site. With the same mound. Sure it would have delayed things, but then it would have stayed Yankee Stadium, the House That Ruth Built. Where Gehrig gave his speech. Where DiMaggio and Mantle and Bernie roamed CF.

              I agree with NJYankFan 100%. NYS also has perplexing features like the upper decks angled in as seen in the above pic, and of course the fake phony frieze which looks close enough to touch, rather than regally hanging from a larger roof.

                Um, if the new Yankee Stadium was built on the same site, it would still be a replica. Just like the atrocious RYS was, after it destroyed all the beauty of OYS in the early 1970's. While on that horrendous renovation subject. The mound, home plate, bases, fences, dugouts were not in the same exact location(s) as they were in OYS. (Monu-mushnik can attest to that fact). So when you saw Ron Guidry on the mound, it was not the same mound that Whitey Ford pitched on. When you saw Don Mattingly step up to the plate, it was not the same location and plate where The Mick, Joltin Joe, The Iron Horse and the Bambino stepped up to. The dugout locations were not in the same spots. Heck, my season ticket location in RYS didn't even exist in OYS!!! lol

                I will agree with you on thing you said. NYS is definitely more comfortable than RYS. No steep stairways, no narrow walkways, better food selections, and more leg room in compared to RYS, etc, etc.

                NYS > rys (The OYS destroying rys doesn't deserve to be in capital letters)

                  Better to have a "fake phony frieze" than a Shea Stadium look. Or even worse, a Citi Field look!!!!

                  Shea Stadium > Fake Phony Ebbetts Field
