Wilpons and MLS re-open Negotiations about Queens-based Franchise

47

As discussed a couple of days ago, for the Wilpons its either the Isles or MLS and not both. Once thought to be dead, it looks like the Wilpons are back in serious discussions to purchase a second NY soccer franchise. Here's the quote from MLS commish Don Garber that has the biggest Islanders implications: bq. "They're still trying to figure out what they might be able to do with the land outside Citi Field. There are very few places to have a stadium in the New York metropolitan area; Queens is one of those prime locations and we'd love to see if we can try to make something work there.'' Basically he said they will build the stadium right where the arena for the Islanders would be. Discuss.
