I guess the effect that the bridges have on the 200 level is similar to what you have in the last few rows of the lower deck at old or new Yankee Stadium, or many other venues. Major tunnel effect in some spots where there is a 2nd tier overhanging the lower level. While I don't like sitting there, the tunnel view is not unique to the renovation/bridges. It's like there is a 3rd tier, it just might affect more rows since it really is just the front of a 3rd tier pushed out over the ice. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't sign off on it if I owned the team and really think it could damage the sports and concert experience at MSG. But, there are lots of arenas and stadiums with stacked tier seating and lots of tunnel view seats in those venues. MSG was a great venue b/c it had none of that. Now it will have to find another way to be a great venue.
