New York Islanders Daily: Arena Talk On WFAN
The New York Islanders and their arena drama was discussed this week on the Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts show on WFAN.
AAAAAAANNNNNND GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY! If you’re not from New York you probably don’t get that reference (It’s a play on words in reference to how Mike and the Maddog opened up their show on every day on WFAN…you know what nevermind). Anyway, the number one sports station in the country, and probably the world, was discussing our New York Islanders.
It’s a rare occurrence, so I’m always happy to hear some NYI talk on the old airwaves. Joe and Evan received a call who was nervous about the Islanders leaving if Belmont doesn’t pan out.
The two hosts essentially agreed that the Isles should be playing in Nassau Coliseum. Here, you can take a listen for yourselves actually:
On the surface, the very thin surface, the Islanders should be playing at the Nassau Coliseum. There’s only one problem. That ship has long sailed, and the county seriously screwed up that possibility to the point where Belmont seems to be the only hope.
I liked Joe’s point about the small crowd being boisterous and making it a tough place to play, I just can’t see it happening, unfortunately. As we’ve been saying for a while now…Belmont or Bust.
