Dear Islander Fans,
Get over your stupid fantasy that the Islanders are ever going to come back to Long Island and accept the fact that they will be moved to Canada soon. The Barclays Center was always going to be a disaster and none of you so-called “fans” were ever going to go there. All you guys were so upset that they were leaving Long Island, but it’s ironic because it is your fault.
If you guys really loved your team so much then you would have voted yes to all the proposals for a new arena. None of you tax payers were willing to pay for it, so the Islanders had to look for somewhere else to go. Then all you “fans” got bent out of shape that they were moving and kept saying they will be back. So, um, where are they coming back to? You guys didn’t want to fund a new arena then, you guys really aren’t going to fund one now. You geniuses didn’t think about that, huh?
The Barclays Center and the Islanders both want the Islanders out ASAP. After the 2018-2019 season, Barclays want the Islanders gone. That’s two years. The Islanders are not going to have a new arena approved and built-in two years. There have been rumors of a new arena next to Citi Field, but with the tennis stadium next door and LaGuardia down the road, there’s really no room for another arena. The area does not need anymore damn traffic. So with no arena to go to after they get kicked out, where are the Islanders going to go?
The answer is Canada. Face is Islander fans. The Islanders are irrelevant in this town. New Yorkers only really care about the Rangers because they are actually consistently good. You guys have not been relevant since the ’80’s and that’s not changing anytime soon. The Islanders don’t bring in much revenue in New York. They would be a hell of a lot more successful in Quebec City who have been itching for a hockey team for a while. The NHL will step in and move them there. So Islander fans, you guys can pull out a map and learn where Quebec City is or find another hockey team to root for. Time to offically give up your dream of them coming back to Long Island.
