It's weird that you were one of the main people rooting against the Islanders during the vote for their new arena for this reason and you support Met fans not showing up. Seems pretty hypocritical to me.
If isles fans don't support the team it's leaving. If mets fans don't support the team, the wilpons are leaving. Also the leagues are completely different in terms of how much each team spends on the players. Part of the reason mets fans are upset right now is we were outbid by the marlins. How is that possible? We're a NY team, not some small market team. Plus the isles started rebuilding when they were bad. The mets don't seem to have a clear plan the fans can get behind. It seems like they're somewhat trying to be decent now and hope to be better in the future. If we're in rebuilding mode than why is wright still here? Why did we keep reyes last year? Why is Dickey here? And where are the promising young players?
