It's not rocket science, and it doesn't need to be discussed ad nausea. What's wrong with the Yankees is simple and clear. If you've watched even a minute of a game at the "new" stadium, you know what is painfully clear, the Yankees as you know (or ever thought you knew them) are done. The divide (both physical and symbolic) between the empty "legend" seats and the plebes says it all. What's wrong with the Yankees? Well I'll tell you.......

What's wrong with the Yankees is that they've embraced corporate greed to the point where the on-field play is irrelevant. They have unnecessarily built a new stadium in order to maximize profits at the expense of tradition, home-field advantage, and their true fans. It's a disgrace and they are reaping exactly what they deserve.

What's Wrong With The Yankees

Empty Legend seats?? The Yankees have the the highest attendance avg. in the MLB 45,793 per game 2,976,564 total in 65 home games.  LA Dodgers have 3,095,235 with a attendance avg. 45,518 in 68 home games. Fans are still packing them in up there in the BRONX. So i guess you can say that the fans have embraced corporate greed also, but its not just the yankees all sports in USA and for that much the world are linked in some way to greed of corporate entities.

What's Wrong With The Yankees

The sports industry has to learn that we the public are the MVP's of the sport. Without us you are noting but a sandlot game in the park. We are the ones that buy the jerseys and fill up your stadiums. The corporate guys that fill the skyboxes and luxury suites are rich and you the game as diversion or to impress a client. The bleecher bums of the world and the guys listening to the game on radio are fans that makes the real noise. That debacle at the stadium where they wouldn't let the fans back in after they decided not to wait after a 2 1/2 hour rain delay was disgusting. Some of those people will never go back to the stadium, some may become Mets fans.
