As a 30-year-old paying a Long Island mortgage, but without a raise in four years, watching millionaires and billionaires fight and cry over pocket change just makes me angry and, worse, indifferent, despite my love of the sport and the Islanders.
Have the same feeling, but let me also add, that as a 30yo tax payer makes it even more difficult knowing that after 2015, a HUGE tax revenue generator and a place that gave many LIers a job, including myself, will be playing for NYC tax payers.
