I take the stinky stuff if it spends the same. NVMC offers more stinky money than gilded wow money.
But by the tone, I think you still take less. The problem I think you see is that SOMETHING HAS TO GET DONE, and we have a finality staring at us - something CAN get done in Nassau leaving him with wealth and profitability; nothing can get done leaving him more than a tenant and essentially a SERF in Brooklyn.
So the only answers for a profitable team are Nasau and wait or sell to Ratner.
Point is he doesn't make enough at either venue. There is nothing to be done at the current Nassau venue without a serious capital investment that he's not going to make because it doesn't pay for itself. The current situation, regardless of the lease, doesn't make enough.
