Let’s get to your Thursday headlines
Good morning, New York Giants fans!
The pick here is guard Kevin Zeitler. I’m amazed he’s never been named to a Pro Bowl.
Players, owners disagree on a number of things.
No love for MetLife.
27. MetLife Stadium – New York Giants and New York Jets
Feral cats might be the only living things that love MetLife Stadium. Home to 300-plus cats, the New York Giants and New York Jets also share this building. It’s a journey just for fans to make it out to New Jersey. Once they get inside, after forking out hundreds of dollars, they see a dull stadium without substance. Sadly, since it was built in 2007 and cost nearly $2 billion, MetLife Stadium is sticking around for decades.
Everything Snyder has done with the name has been about a fight. He didn’t listen to people who were hurt by the name. He cited flawed polls that told him what he wanted to hear. He tried to buy his way out of criticism. He caved only because of financial pressure from sponsors. Even in the end, when he announced he would change the name, he did so grudgingly, from the @Redskins Twitter account, with the offensive logo on the letterhead, in a statement that mentioned the “proud, tradition rich franchise” but not the Indigenous people who demanded the change. Dan Snyder sees what he must do, but he still won’t admit why.
I said before that Snyder was changing the name because he had to, not because he wanted to.
