I don't understand why they couldn't just stay at Barclays.
Bert? Bert is that you?
I talked to a contractor working for Barclays Restorations last night in a bank, who felt Isles playing at Barclays in Brooklyn was weird.
Brooklyn! Learn to love it baby!
You left out the "Brooklyn is our HOME, our HOME, SWEET HOME!"
Similarly, perhaps a Josh Bailey bench, where you can relax and enjoy watching the game, without impacting the play or ever getting hurt.
<<< bring it on boys.. but it would take more than the two of you lol. Way happier to go to Belmont than Brooklyn, so I will enjoy my Isles when it opens, but no arena/stadium will ever hold the place in my heart that the coliseum does. I will always wish they either did a real refurbish or built a new one on the same site. None of the warts have ever bothered me, I rarely buy food or beer inside a stadium, I pee before the game , and I dont care about luxury boxes.
By far the worst day of my sports fandom was not due to any playoff losses by my teams or traded players, but rather after we lost to the Caps game 7 in DC and I knew (at the time)there would not be another game at the coli. The last game in the coli next season will be a bit of deja vu for me but not as bad since at least I expect Belmont to be a really good place to watch a game, unlike Brooklyn.
You understand why they can’t be at the coliseum though. I’m talking about ‘Sal D’angelo’, the 300 pound pizza guy who sits behind me in his Ross Johnston jersey who can’t understand the financial and political issues at NVMC. You can also catch him complaining about composite sticks.
Those ****s suckered money out of my family for the "last game" at the Coliseum and now there will be another one. I will not be attending unless the tickets are reasonably priced.
very true, and I do agree with you. tater you are one of my fav posters. I just couldn't resist. I like to wax poetic about the coli.Once they went to Brooklyn there was no looking back, this is the best option we had, I am not complaining. I will have season tickets at Belmont unless the Isle reps keep screwing me, but that is another story
Also I am 52 years old, and a cancer survivor so although I am still a big guy (now big in the wrong places) my bar room brawling days are long over and you could knock me over with a feather. All bluster now.
Same way. Love the building, wish they could be there forever, even though I understand why they cannot.
I do miss me Titan though... red turbo...2020.....
How is the rep screwing you?
Also can be heard yelling "SHOOT IT" every 5 seconds.
Lol this is my buddy’s twitter account. Started off in our group chat with him basically doing what he does on that account every day . We still get the daily pictures in our chat
I actually heard a complaint about Barclays "you cant just get regular food at barclays" you walk by multiple pizza stands on every floor of the barclays. Among all of the complaints of Barclays this I didn't understand. Pizza is regular damn food for a New Yorker. Pretty sure alot of general stands had hot dogs/burgers or variations. Either way people will complain that the beer tastes funny compared to the Coli even though it comes from a can. The best complaints will be "there are too many things to do in the new arena, i want to just watch the game". I understand if complain about this because of higher ticket prices, but in 2021 people who don't care about hockey or the isles will still go to games at Belmont. People don't understand arenas now try to reach a larger base of people so the team/arena makes more $.
While this is largely on point, ironically, the main pizza concession on the concourse level had been closed for all of this season's Islander games prior to the last one.
Half of the concessions at Barclays are no longer open for Islanders games. A true “major league venue”.
lots of new concrete/rebar work done to the left and right of the "big box" in the foreground
I hope they at least have them all open in the week leading up to Easter. "Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I wore my Tavares jersey without the 'Traitor' name plate." "Say 10 Hail Baileys and don't let it happen again."
bonus points for "Hail Baileys" lol
Couldn't let that pass by.
Bones needs to say a lot more than that.
