Howard Saffan says Harbor Yard Violated Lease

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio has Sound Tigers President Howard Saffan's comments that a company called Centerplate who operates Harbor Yard violated their lease agreement forcing the club to move games to the Nassau Coliseum blaming them with Arena executive director Lynn Carlotto who was not in the office Monday afternoon and could not be reached for comment.

Saffan said the Sound Tigers have sent e-mails about the situation to Carlotto and other officials of Centerplate, the company that runs the arena, since January about those dates.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

Seems Michael Fornabaio is not willing to give the Sound Tigers the benefit of the doubt here and he raises a great point asking if this was a problem going back to January why a Saturday night announcement to only Islander fans?

Howard Saffan said the right things and showed the beatwriter the lease, I tend to believe him. Ok, if that's the case I cannot blame the Islanders but how this was announced and released was terrible and compounded things when this could have been made public a long time ago.

Dates should always be made available for the primary tenant.
