What is so difficult to comprehend? The state obviously does NOT want a stadium built on its land. The state is waiting for a project that it likes and actually wants for its land. Welcome to NYS politics. The folks in Albany don't want a stadium built on state owned land. It's not that complicated. It's been what, nearly 3 years since the Cosmos submitted their bid? I grew up and lived in NYS for 26 years. Trust me, the state is no closer today to making a decision on that land, then they were 3 years ago. Seriously, if anyone truly wanted a stadium in that county, the Islanders wouldn't be moving to Brooklyn.
