You're right, good deal. For some reason I had it in my head that Wednesday was at home.

Political Correctness.

I don't think anyone is really opposed to it. Just don't think it'll happen. I'm no expert on it, but too many politicians with their own agendas.

It would be a good idea, if they designed it right, and if they had the seats dimmed and ice lit up like they do now. With a similar ceiling. A high tech version of an old classic looking MSG would be nice.

I don't like how other arenas are so bright. I like how MSG dims the seats and the ice is lit up like on center stage.

I also like how you can stand above ice level on the walkway against the glass and look down onto the ice on the penalty box side of the rink.

There are some really unique characteristics at MSG that I would hope they carry over to a new arena if they ever build one.

@FisolaNYDN don't forget NYC law as it pertains to asbestos removal if asbestos was airborne in arena then MSG is contaminated

Newsday implying the cleanup may take a while

Considering that it is asbestos-related, it's not out of the realm of possibility that the Garden won't be available to the Knicks in time for Friday's game against the Wizards
I don't know very much about this topic, but what I do know is that these sort of cleanups can take a while. I suppose it's all dependent on how contaminated the arena is. Could you imagine having to clear the entire bowl? What **** show that would be.

New Yorkers breathe this stuff in all the time, IMO, while in our state of the art subway stations.

First of all, MSG needs to take precautions, regardless of whether or not people think that they breathe this stuff in all the time, yes it would take a lot of contamination to truly effect our daily lives, but in order to clean it up they need to follow certain procedures.

Second, I'm sure they will be trying their hardest to have the arena ready by the weekend, but we shall see, i know it takes time to get rid of.

Third, it turns into an environmental factor. Also if that one piece fell, they need to check how stable the rest of the ceiling is before re-opening the arena. The rest of the ceiling could be just as unstable, but just hasnt fallen yet.

All in all, as long as they get it done and it is safe to be there, then im hoping i can get there for sundays game.

Dude, was my post too long for you? The line after nanny state reversed the claim and indicted the lawyers.

Anyway, the lawyers have inflicted themselves on the people so much that the state HAS intervened. The removal of asbestos is basically a federal matter (OSHA) and is HEAVILY legislated and legalized.

Ever see the movie ET? When they plasticize the house and walk around in space suits? That's what they need to legally do to remove asbestos/asbestiform materials.

Nah but I saw session 9 which I think was basically the same idea.

Seemed like an odd thing to get riled up about, was all i'm saying, and i'm as anti-regulation as likely anyone on this board.

Maybe this is leads to a better name for the Anisimov-Callahan-Dubinsky line. Since they're so awesome they can knock asbestos out of the ceiling of the Garden maybe they should be called The Asbestos Line.

I think it's better to contain asbestos rather than try to remove it. Removal is a mjor project.

An NBA official, who requested anonymity because he is not at liberty to speak for the Knicks or Devils, who manage the arena, said that MSG operations firmly believes it will resolve the Garden problem "very soon," and that last night’s Knicks-Orlando cancelled game will be the only event that requires rescheduling.

They believe they can get this cleaned up by Wednesday, and they won’t have to move any games – they'll just have to reschedule the Magic game,” the official said. “But if it gets on past Thursday, the Knicks said they’ll get back to the people in Newark.”

Or if you're going to be removing it, certainly don't have a ****-ton of events booked during the removal.
