I don't think you understand spatial differences.

You said it yourself. "Under." At a concert or other stadium, the overhang/balcony isn't part of your forward field of vision. In this case at MSG, the bridges are now part of the forward field of vision. For a lot of people, it's not above them, it's in front of them. Yes, it doesn't block the playing surface, but it blocks a fairly sizeable chunk of the forward field of view of the Garden. Some people don't care how their view is affected, and that's fine. Other people want the "whole" Garden atmosphere when at a game, not just a sliver.
