I love the Giants but it really doesn't bother me that they're outside the city in Jersey. It helps keep the traffic out of the city and it would take up a lot of space in the city. We don't have room here for that. We can build tall buildings wherever, but I don't think an NFL stadium would work well.

Do what the Dolphins/Marlins and the Raiders/A's currently do, share a stadium. Hell, at one point all of them(NY baseball & football teams) played at the Polo Grounds. More recent, at Shea, both the Jets and the Mets played there and at Yankees Stadium, the Yankees and the Giants.

It's New York; no one wants to share. It's bad enough that the Jets and the Giants don't have separate stadiums. Personally, I really could care less, but I have a feeling that's what the perception is, more so, by the team, than the general public.

Sharing a stadium solves nothing if it isn't done equitably. This is the reason why the Jets left Shea for the Meadowlands. The Mets have always had a sweetheart lease at Shea, and prevented the Jets from playing any home games before the end of October. By that time, the weather turned bad and conditions for playing football inside a circular stadium near Flushing Bay were frightening. Had the Jets been able to get in a home game or two in September, everything might have turned out differently.

Not to mention "Cookie Cutter" parks that accommodate both baseball and football are a serious offense to the baseball gods....
