Report: Giants to open new stadium
By Dan Graziano
The New York Giants will play the first regular-season game at the new stadium in the Meadowlands that they share with the Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The New York Daily News first reported the story that the Giants had won a "secret" coin toss conducted by the league to see which team hosted the game.
Gary Myers of the Daily News cited an anonymous source in reporting that Jets owner Woody Johnson was "outraged" that no one from his organization was present at the coin toss. As the Post indicates, Newyorkjets.com had a different interpretation of how the coin flip would be conducted.
The Newark Star-Ledger is linking to the Daily News' report while reiterating that an NFL spokesman had indicated that commissioner Roger Goodell would make this decision, not a coin.
