Citi Field though was because baseball stadiums is the only way they'll get into New York. I could see that happening. They would have done Old Yankee Stadium, but the league didn't want to foot the bill to keep everything running. Citi Field is also really big, I don't know if New York has a natural fit since the Meadowlands holds two NFL teams, and would be a major logistical issue. They might not be able to get in until they abandon that stupid bowl game, or change the date.
