Typical meet and greet/Q & A. Most questions people asked were pretty bad.

Some guy went on a rant saying we should sign Zlatan. It was super annoying/uncomfortable because Heber was there. All the people around me were looking at each other confused and murmuring. You could visually see Tinner getting mad, but he was biting his tongue. He then said he’d rather play with Heber and we all gave a nice ovation showing our appreciation for the Brazilian.

Glen Crooks then joked Zlatan was Anton’s idol. Tinner angrily answered “no” immediately. Guess their time together on the Swedish national team wasn’t to great.
I'm glad to see Tinny was getting mad at that, it shows you that our team really has trust in each other and feel they're good enough to conquer the league :D

I was there. No mention of a stadium. No one even asked a question about the topic. I guess we’re all that broken.
It's a waste of question to ask Dome Torrent, Heber, or Anton Tinnerholm about a stadium. Honestly, it's a waste of a question to ask Claudio Reyna too.

Honestly, it's a waste of a question to ask anyone in the front office, NYCFC or CFG. What are they actually going to say that's new information?

Also, Glenn Crooks is a terrible MC for these things.

New York City FC continues to play in Yankee Stadium. What the latest on their stadium search?

I know they’re focused on a specific project. There’s really not much detail I can add but I’m encouraged that will lead to a different situation. I think about the challenges that we had to get Red Bull Arena built [in Harrison, New Jersey], to get Audi Field built [in Washington, D.C.]. Big market stadium projects are enormously difficult. But like when you asked me where will MLS be in the future, I have no doubt that in Boston, in New York we will have great stadium projects eventually.

Is a code word that I'm not privy to?
On the web, evergreen content means articles that are always relevant, and not tied to changing external factors such as tastes, seasons, or news. Sarcastically, it means content that is dependent on outside conditions but those conditions never change and certainly don't improve.

I think it's news that they're focused on a "specific" project. It's certainly further down the line than we've been for a while.

the words are different this time, normally he usually says things like " i know they trying" or " i know they are looking at options".

today he says "specific project"

all this leads me to believe its that area we all keep talking about and maybe they working on the political blessings. of course it can all go up in smoke if the less stadium friendly people get elected.

I agree the intense smoke we've been noticing for about a year+ now has not dissipated. But we're all just done with smoke.

Veering way off topic in true stadium thread fashion I find myself thinking of Lost often in the recent context of Game of Thrones. The thought of rewatching Game of Thrones at this point feels more frustrating than enjoyable as I expect the older episodes would end up being a constant reminder of interesting plot lines and lose ends that I now know will just be abandoned in a hasty rush to the end. Lost gives me hope because even though the end didn't have nearly the magnitude of unresolved things as GoT the number was substantial and yet I've found Lost to be extremely re-watchable and the unresolved parts don't feel like they detract from the enjoyment at all.
