New York Losses Barclay's Likely Forever on 2/28/19 Via Cuomo/Dolan

New York Islander Fan Central | 6/21/2018 08:34:00 PM |
NYI season schedule was released late Thursday. Cuomo added 8 more Nassau games for 2018-19 out of nowhere & Barclay's Schedule concludes for the season on 2/28/19. They won't be back for playoffs or likely ever again.

Yormark made clear he wants every game he can get in Nassau also, that will get interesting if Dolan does get an arena, and leaves in a few years.

You can bet with a schedule crafted like this they will never play another game at Barclay's ever again if Cuomo can alter their schedule on a whim like this. Who knows how fast he can kick them out of NY entirely? There will be no even split in years ahead, it will be all games at 13,000 seat no revenue NYCB on Cuomo's orders.

Nassau will not be ready for games until 12/1/18 which is likely the only reason they are playing any games at Barclay's next season.

As great as the day began, that's how bad this ends. To go back to a failed location where Dolan's puppet Cuomo tells them when/where they play as Dolan become our landlord is a joke, but to put them in a 13,000 seat building that failed in the past will put them out of business.

Usual False Narrative To Deceive Gullible Fans:
It's A LI fan base, it's where they belong.

Not LI fan base, Barclays outdrew Nassau 16/25 years, tied 6 others. Barclays's won draw despite all Dolan's media negativity, lies, and no Sat games. 

Bled red ink in 16,000 seat Coliseum forever win or lose with a cap floor payroll.
Will go bankrupt in NYCB at 13,000 and no luxury boxes with new spending.

Reality Check:
Every excuse was removed by ownership not to sellout, and you are now expected to pay NYC corporate prices for your cap-max Nassau team and sellout every single game. If not, how can these owners stay here in business?

You stay home now & do the old dance can't afford games/prices, not your problem, then owners can't afford the world class experience they gave you. So it's time to be that legit LI fan base & walk the walk you hated me writing for years, or these owners have every right to remind you of years of telling them we need to be in Nassau.

Pressure is all on you, better get ready to pony up because you are on the clock to sellout every game in Nassau, can't do that you can't have a team at those prices.

Can't pay NYC prices for NYC payroll, can't have Nassau team, and Cuomo will pull his arena for NYI & let Dolan be his own landlord at Belmont with his teams.

As for NYC Barclay's fans Cuomo/Dolan yanked the rug out from under them, you get vested in a season, and they take it from you on 2/28/19, of course they will put playoff games in Nassau, and once it's ready for hockey they will never play there in the future.
