As long as the Giants and Jets continue to share a venue, the debate surrounding who owns MetLife Stadium will continue to add a spark to the New York rivalry. This year, the Giants have the better argument. The Jets missed the playoffs and the G-Men went on to win their second Super Bowl in four seasons. If ownership of the New Meadowlands hinges on recent success, you have to give the Giants the nod. The green teamers were reminded of that when the Giants’ parade stopped at MetLife on Tuesday.
“Last time we did this it was in Giants Stadium,” Justin Tuck told the crowd according to the NY Daily News. “Now we’re in MetLife Stadium. But one thing you can be sure of is whose house this is.”
In front of a crowd of more than 40,000 Giants fans, Tuck’s words rang true. Ownership agreed with him.
“Nobody asked me if the Jets were about to take over this town, or I would’ve had my own answer,” co-owner Steve Tisch added. “Actually we answered it two nights ago.”
