For us around here this is no issue since we're pretty much used to delays, lines and all that ****, but for outsiders from Seattle and Denver....yikes

Secaucus Junction isn't built for 10,000 people. 30 or 40? I mean what?

Hope the Dunkin Donuts in Secaucus was open for that crowd. Would have made a killing. AT least 30-40k dollars.

It was prob closed.
Store owners in NJ for the most part are inflexible and don't have the foresight to see special lucrative opportunities and extend their hours.

Well there are fountains. Secaucus Junction has limited bathrooms though, so that was probably incredibly uncomfortable. But there are water fountains. There's also a bar in there too? Pizzeria and Dunkin Donuts close after the PM rush hour. But I wonder if that Bar was closed too?

Secaucus is really really small. Their main concourse has like a dozen turnstiles. And unless they opened emergency exits their are only two ways to the outside world to like go home and hail a cab. And even if you wanted a cab it's one way traffic for drop off pick up. That must have been an absolute disaster.

I know a lot of shuttle buses were parked there, waiting for people...how in the world would that work?

Someone really just failed in assessing the amount of people NJ transit could accommodate. I guess that's what happens when everyone and their grandmother assumed the game was in NYC. The NYC subways deal with that all the time. But NJ transit does not.

I bet they didn't sell a single ticket. You can only get through the turnstiles at Secaucus junction usually if you swipe using a ticket you purchased. However, there is no chance in hell that 30-35k people were able to buy tickets at Penn at any time.

And there's also no way in hell NJT crews were able to check anyone's tickets.

Everyone probably got a nice complimentary ride to their destination.

Internet keeps asking why people weren't allowed to walk to the game.

Annoying that none of these stories explain that it isn't that walking wasn't allowed, that walking isn't really possible. Only way is on the 120 side and even that isn't advisable. Coming from the city there is no way to walk there.

Also it is sounding like a lot of the blame falls on the NFL. They pushed to use the junction as the "go to" point, but also gave NJtransit a very low estimate on how many riders would be coming through.

I guess they assumed more people would bus it, but why would you use the buses when they cost $50 and the train cost $10.

Michael Sam who is a projected 2nd rounder in this years draft has come out as to being gay. This is going to be a huge story.

I did not think the first openly gay athlete in any of the four major sports (sadly Jason Collins doesn't count at this point) would be a football player.

the fact he looked mediocre as a OLB at the senior bowl should hurt his draft stock more then the fact hes gay.

Adam Schefter tweeted 2nd round prospect. Mort tweeted he was a 3rd-5th round prospect. Depends how he does at his combine now.

McKenzie has no ****ing plan what the hell he is doing. Create a big need by letting your two best players walk away and one of his two signings fails the physical. **** off, Reggie. 0-16, here we come. Over $60 million in cap space and this moron has no plan for free agency.

This whole kerfuffle with Saffold is something that could only happen to the Raiders, lol. Who the hell are they actually going to spend all that money on? Vick? Tuck? I am totally lost trying to figure out what there doing but it ain't like my team's GM has much of a clue either so I shouldn't be one to talk.

I am still shocked that Reggie did let his best OT, DE and RB walk away, especially since all 3 are still rather young and other teams seem to value them a lot. Guys like Tuck and Woodley are only a short term fix.

As of today, the Raiders don't have a starting LT, QB, RB on offense. They also don't have a D-Line as in not a single starting defensive linemen on their roster, both starting corners are free agents and no free safety. It's a total mess right now.

Blowing up the team and cutting the bad contracts over the last 2 years was a must but it seems Reggie has no idea how to rebuild the house he did blow up.

He also either has bad luck or simply sucks with finding players that are not injury prone. Most of both draft classes he picked have only one thing in common, a lot of time on IR.

Does Manning get a commission from Decker?

Also, being reported that Tuck and Andre Brown could both end up in Oakland. Sucks but it's the business.

Best receiver on the market at a pretty reasonable hit per year, I'll take it. Now get another one. James Jones is apparently coming in for a visit.

Unless they pick up a marquee quarterback, I don't think the Jets should expect the same production he's had the past two seasons. He's a good receiver, but a good portion of his past two season can be attributed to Manning. To Decker's credit though, he did put up 612 and 8 TDs with Tebow/Orton under center.
