'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Yankee Millers?

Rotherham United have called the new ground The New York Stadium and now we've slept on it and had time to mull the name over, I think the fans are still divided on it.

Yes, I think we all know that the area where the new stadium is was once upon a time called 'New York' and that the old Guest and Chrimes works, which the ground is built upon, built the fire hydrants that stand proud in New York, America.

But, is that enough of a reason to name the new football stadium in Rotherham after the nations third most populous state who have sports teams such as the New York Jets and New York Giants - although, I suppose, there is always the chance we can have a 'NY Cup' pre-season competition against soccer side New York Red Bulls.

Personally, I think most of us Millers will be just pleased to get back into Rotherham and the name of the stadium is just something to put up with.

Something`s are puzzling me though - for instance, Chairman Tony Stewart did say, last week, that some people would be surprised when the name was announced, a name that had been talked about for the last few months? Maybe not. And, I am almost sure that we were promised a fans vote once? But, I could be wrong, it has been known!

The 'New York' name, as I said, has been bandied about and, has mostly, had negative vibes from what I've heard and seen - so it was a bit of a surprise I suppose when it was the chosen name. But, hey, the Chairman is paying for it so has the right to name the stadium, doesn't he? And, he will certainly be 'An Englishman in New York' although he'll probably never be a true 'Native New Yorker'

I'm just waiting for the first person to call me a Yankee Miller!

So, Start spreading the news and hope that this is not just a Fairy Tale in New York....
