    Basically what your saying is you dont want to entice them anymore? They hate us and want to destroy us regardless. and I think youre focusing on the name to much. You should be focusing on the newest and tallest building in NY, standing right were the towers stood. Thats our "**** you" to our enemies, along with our drone strikes
    yea i know. and i think the original 1WTC name conveys all those thoughts perfectly.

      It is the essence of our republic. No political party or organization has any more or less claim to it.
      I'm referring to the building, not the word.

        I didnt say NYC specifically. but regardless....you dont correct them? lol

        I don't get why we would refer to something by a name that the port authority said we shouldnt name it. It's just easier for people to relate with it's real name, and not some sort of slogan

          Emotions run deep on this Pizz. 3000 is a lot of people. I think some folks need to be cut a little slack on this.
          I do get your point. I would have supported rebuilding the twin towers just as they were. And show them that nothing would change with us. But the reality is that it DID have an effect on us. A horrible effect. The worst day in American history.
          I can't give people a hard time who want to make a point with the name of the new building.
          Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

            I don't "correct" them because there is nothing to correct....

            They live there and work there and if that's what they call it then that's what it's called in my opinion.

            Giants Stadium is now Metlife stadium, but if you call it Giants Stadium I'm not gonna jump on you and tell you you are "wrong"

              I get it. honestly I really do. Just because im not a super-mega-patriotic-wear-my-colors guy, and get embarassed around people who chant "USA!! USA!!" I feel like I get looked down upon.
              It's probably why i think that it's tacky(the nickname), and a reminder of how these people were not protected from the worst attack on U.S. soil ever.

                It's a good a point. I rather continue to generically call it The Meadowlands than to refer to it by a sponsored name. lol

                actually, it's funny that you brought that up, because someone else said something like "Who cares.....in the next 30 years you know it will just be named Google Tower...or something. Hey maybe Sears will make a comeback...."

                    Yeah probably would never satisfy everyone on this but those who lost loved ones can call it what they want....There still people dying or have health issues just from exposure from the whole thing....

                          It even pointed out that you stupidly started the wrong TE. (I added the "stupidly" part)

                          • The Yahoo recap of Amanda vs. Matt was very fair but I thought mentioning the humiliation of getting beat by your wife was a little harsh on Yahoo's part.

                                Whats funny is I was starting Owen Daniels all week, but I was watching the pregame stuff and a sideline reporter came on and mentioned that Keller was going to be active (he was Questionable)

                                Since Keller's prediction was high I made the switch, as usual that's what I get for listening to the "Experts" I should know I'm smarter then them by now right?

                                I would have been pissed if that's what cost me the game but luckily even if I had put Owen Daniels in I would have lost anyhow.
