while predictable, your answers to the 30 years and Stadium Design points are fair and well thought out.
the Egress thing is indefensible. If you think it is FASTER to get out of Metlife than it was Giants Stadium, you are just deluding yourself. Giants Stadium had 8 spirals that were very fast to get down, even from the upper tier, and 3 escalators at all 4 gates that went directly to each level.
MetLife makes you snake through the entire lower level just to get to the mezzanine (which is where I sit, and where I know you sit). It is completely ridiculous. What's more is that the escalators, as they did Sunday, frequently break down and strand people in one of the ridiculous, bifurcated lines they create. Even for a sparsely attended game like the remaining games will be, it takes me no less than 20 minutes to get out of MetLife from my seats in Section 204. It took me about 3 minutes to get out of Giants Stadium from Section 308. The way it is currently set up is completely ridiculous and DANGEROUS. If there is ever an incident, heaven forbid, many people could die.
In fact, the other day I instituted a complaint with the NJ Division of Fire Safety about this very thing, as the Jets and Giants have repeatedly refused to listen.
