The New York Giants and New York Jets have filed a lawsuit against a project developer called Triple Five, who is in charge of the production of the proposed American Dream Meadowlands project (aka "Xanadu"). The often animated Governor Chris Christie is never afraid to speak his mind, and needless to say, he is not happy with the two New York teams.

 

The project includes a 638,000 square foot indoor water park as well as a 2.3 million square foot mall building, that is yet to be completed. However, Triple Five ignored an agreement made with the Giants and Jets that requires consent when there are changes being made that could affect the teams' game days. The main concern is that traffic will make it extremely difficult for fans to reach the stadium causing "terrible nightmares." Christie is unpleased with how the Giants and Jets have handled the situation.

"It's not the way the business should be done, and I'm disappointed in the teams for having done it — and I'll leave it at that," Christie told The Record.

Triple Five however, insists that the impact the project would have on game day would be "minimal." Alan Marcus, Triple Five's spokesperson, had some harsh comments that were directed at the two sports teams.

// > "Even though their uniforms say New York, they need to consider what is best for New Jersey, its citizens and taxpayers." Marcus continued, "The lawsuit filed by the professional sports teams is an insult to every New Jerseyan who hoped to find work at American Dream Meadowlands. It is an assault on the taxpayers of New Jersey who would benefit from the revenue to be generated by this complex." In other news, Christie just likes to hear himself yell as, shortly after these comments were made, he engaged in a screaming match with a heckler on the Jersey shore.
