How old are you? Obviously not old enough because there was a long stretch of time that the Yankees were an afterthought in NY. I guess it's easy to have a convenient memory because of the Yankees recent success.

I am 12 years old and can only remember back to the year of my birth with Bonnilla and Cone not coming through for the Mets. Please tell me about the glory years when the Mets got more attention, fans, ratings, and press (not including drugs, domestic abuse, tax evasion news) than the Yankee. Let me guess it was 1986! or was it 1969? I guess you've found me out with having those two years as evidence. Sorry for my incredibly ridiculous post in saying that the Yankees are more popular in NYC than the Mets. I am a complete fool.

Good you can take all the front runners. That's all Yankee Stadium is, full of soft corporzate fans. More popular in NYC, great, walk down a street in Manhattan and I bet over half of the people wearing Yankees gear wont know who plays Right field for them. Yankee fans are primarily bandwagon fans. Prime example: Suzyn Waldman ahahahahahahahah
86 Mets. Dykstra, Straw, Doc, Mitchell, Backman, Knight, Keith, Carter, Mookie... most hardcore group ever assembled.

I'm not saying that being more popular is a good or bad thing, just that I think it's true that the Yankees have been more popular in NYC than the Mets ever since the Mets started, and that bugs the crap out of many Met fans. The other Met fan who posted seemed to think I was a dumb kid for thinking this. You are right that the Yankees get band wagon fans, ect. However, band wagon fans and large popularity is a residual effect of being successful. Oh, that the Mets could only have that probem. I wouldn't want to wish it on you though.

Through the entire 1980s and a good portion of the 1970s the Mets outsold and "out-revenued" the Yankees. Remember that NY is a National League town, always will be. So the Mets have an inherent advantage.

While I agree that the Yankees had some tough years in the 60s, early 70s, late 80s, I am surprised to learn that the Mets out revenued the Yankees many a year, and that NYC is a NL town (so much so that two NL teams decided to pick up and leave this NL town). But, I guess if Amazing puts it in print in this forum, it must be true. So, point taken. Thanks for the education. NYC is dominated by the Mets, not Yankees for many reasons, not the least of which is that NYC loves their NL teams (who leave).

You're welcome, Zaz. I wonder if Billy Crystal still has his Mets hat in storage. He'll be needing it soon... }:-)

Back to Topic ...

You'd look depressed to if you were married to Alicia Rickter and had to spend the better part of 7 months on the road.
