    Yea (It's actually YOU) can't make WHAT up, MM??

    Did you think I was taking a shot at the Yankees? I wasn't. All I was trying to say was that the Breeze guys were pretty cool with the fans who visited the Shea demo site (for the most part). Conversely, the Turner guys that I have personally come into contact with (so far) seem to be very cold to the fans who have stopped by the YS demo site. I wasn't trying to turn this into a Mets/Yankees thing .... I was just stating my opinion based on my experiences at both demo sites. I also thought it was cool that Breeze wrote that send off on the last section of Shea. If Turner does something similar when the time comes, I'll applaud them as well.

    It would be nice if we could all try to get along here, regardless of what team we choose to root for. :gt

      Your insults are as well thought out as the content on your website.

      Messageboard screenshots? C'mon, now.
      Gotta do what you gotta do when big companies dont like the small guys taking their web traffic.

      The 1.5k visitors daily seem to be okay with the content. Its a feed of info, thats all...and im far too scared to travel into the south bronx alone in the winter to take my own pictures.

        I have nothing aginst the Mets or there fans: however
        I dont need Met fans telling me I should be: having rallies, holding signs, sneaking into buildings and taking pictures bashing our ownership over percieved injustices concerning the new stadium and lamenting on a daily basis over our former historic home. Unlike the mets the Yankee fan base for the most part is not in the Bronx but is widely spread over new york- many of us dont live near or drive by Yankee stadium- unlike the met base on long island whose fans live near or drive by on a daily basis- so an occasional trek is no big deal. Unlike Met fans we lived through the destruction on a daily basis last year as we went to the stadium and this year Im afraid we will see many things that will rip our hearts out. I dont have to defend what the old stadium will forever mean to me or the impact it had on me and my family over the years from OYS to RYS to present day yankee stadium we have been there for the ride.
        We as a family will always treasure the memories and continue to hope some remnant will survive. As for now I like to come on this thread to see the occasional pic- but for me what I find most interesting are the people with the knowledge and interesting facts about old hidden sections and the like.
        Im just worn out at what seem like any attempt by met fans to trod un us

          I understand you position, MM. Mets fans were 'lucky' in that Shea was taken down within one off season (for all intensive purposes), while the felling of The House That Ruth Built seems to be dragging on & on. Like removing a band-aid .... sometimes it's just better to rip it off in one shot, & get it over with, rather than slowly pull it until it's off.

          I will disagree with you on one point though. While your fan base IS all over NY (& the country for that matter), The Bronx has many more Yankee fans than Mets fans. As a former Bronx native for over 30 years myself, I can attest to that first hand. You rarely if EVER see anyone walking around with a Mets cap or jacket in The Bronx, whether it be Morris Park, Fordham, Gun Hill, Pelham Bay OR the South Bronx for that matter. So, there is no reason why more photos of the demolition shouldn't have been posted by now ..... EXCEPT for the fact that there ain't much demolition to report without access to the site, or vantage points that can look into it. That's the real reason why the photos aren't plentiful. As someone said previously .... once there is an opening (a wall down) somewhere, the photos will start coming hot & heavy .... just give it a little more time.

          Peace.

            Funny thing just happened... I seem to have forgotten where my camera is... and I also seem to have forgotten how to take pictures...

              The part he left out was the part about how they have a great photographer in their fan base that frequently helps out Yankees fans who can't go see the stadium on a regular basis!

              • There's one thing most Yankee and Met fans can agree with...These two new ballparks were built with revenue generation in mind above aesthetic beauty. These ballparks are absolutely plastered with ads absolutely everywhere with too many sections recessed back to accommodate luxury suites. I went to one game in 2009. The least amount of games I've attended since my first year going to baseball games in 1986. And I didn't miss it one bit.

                It's a different game than when I began following baseball. The pitching is horrible, the number of pitching changes are too numerous, and the length of these games with all these guys stepping in and out of the box adjusting their batting gloves like OCD patients has taken a lot of fun out of the game for me. Plus the fact where the Yankees and the red sox are competing in their own private baseball league in which most teams have no chance of being competitive, and in the event they are, the odds are they will collapse the next year.

                      And they said that in 1986. And they said that in 1966. And they said that in 1946. What's your point.

                        If you were to compare a baseball game from 1986 to 2006 you would notice a more significant change in the game compared to 1946/1966.

                          • Mets fans.. Lets chill here. I dont think any demolition of any building will be better and more enjoyable then the one about to commence.

                            AND....
