On Steinbrenner memories and Yankee Stadium subsidies

Atlantic Yards Report

Norman Oder looks at media coverage of the death of The Boss, including this nugget from Field of Schemes:

On Field of Schemes, sports facility watchdog Neil deMause observed:

Most of the coverage so far has talked about the seven championships the Yankees won during his tenure and his "bluster"; less attention has been given to his role in the debacle that is New Yankee Stadium.

...Steinbrenner is survived by his children Hank, Hal, Jessica, and Jennifer, $1.2 billion in public subsidies for his new stadium, and a big hole in the ground where promised parks were supposed to be by now.
