The pols will probably want to see how much tax money will be generated by the Brooklyn Nets. If that is a bonanza, then there will be less opposition. The question to them is whether MLS will generate money like baseball (4 teams) and tennis and MSG (3 teams). Heavy drinking in Woodside then taking the LIRR will NOT be a good idea. Not only is there a "gap" danger, the RR will not tolerate rowdy behavior. There already are alcohol restrictions on the trains after midnight week-ends. Alcohol has caused the RR a lot of problems, most notably the girl who fell through the gap in WOODSIDE. One more thing, passengers to Woodside do not have to immediately take the next train to Willets Pt. They could hang out in Woodside and take a later train. Just do not lose the ticket.
