West Side Not Always the Best Side...

And just like that the Jets' dream facility, New York's 2010 Super Bowl and NYC 2012 are on a flatline with no life support in sight.

Lightly-regarded assemblyman Sheldon Silver put a major wrench in any future stadium plans with an abstention on the three-person Public Authorities Commission Board. The board needed unanimous approval but Silver has a greater desire to help rebuild downtown Manhattan, which hasn't recovered economically from the 9/11 attacks.

As for the Jets stadium and the NFL's hope for a Super Bowl. They will have to take their money somewhere else in the city. My suggestion would be around Nassau County, Long Island in a stadium/arena deal with the Islanders or back to their roots in Queens.
