My Take on the New MSG Renovations

Over at TheGoodPoint.com, I posted a story about the new renovations that are currently taking place at Madison Square Garden:

While hockey fans in one area of New York are complaining about not getting a new arena, fans in another area are thinking negatively about new renovations being made to their arena. This is the case when it comes to the New York Rangers and the changes to the “World’s Most Famous Arena,” Madison Square Garden.

Currently, the NYC mainstay is being gutted on the inside and transformed into something even more corporate and new age than it was before.

New York Rangers blogger Scotty of Scott Hockey is not exactly thrilled with what MSG is transforming into.

“I am less than pleased because I see a dark future in it,” he told The Good Point recently. “I see a future where hardcore fans and children will not be able to afford to go to games.”

Well, I am one of those fans who won’t be back unfortunately.  After having season tickets for 16 years it was time to say goodbye due to the ticket increase and it’s just gonna get worse. It sucks and I always swore I would die with my season tickets but I just cannot justify all the money it cost. I pay $40 just for train ride and subway to MSG and then another $40 for my ticket. Basically it costs me almost $80 to sit in the second to the last section in the Garden.
