why not just have the game in some park and set up some bleachers?

When you guys were talking about where the Libs would go if MSG was ruled out, I did think of suggesting they play the damn thing at Rucker Park. It'd draw some attention to the league for the sheer insanity.

Liberty did play that outdoor game at Arthur Ashe Stadium in 2008.

How many times has MSG not been available mid-season? I remember the Liberty playing six games at 6,000 seat Radio City Music Hall in 2004 due to the Republican convention. 6,000 capacity was 3,886 seats less than the Liberty announced as their average attendance that year.

Do we count three years of exile to Jersey as one "time" or as 54 separate times?

I was looking for a mid-season temp replacement. But now that you mention it, I guess the Liberty now have two first-class options - Newark and Brooklyn - that they could use if MSG was booked on a playoff night, that they didn't have in 2004.

Actually, due to ownership clashes with the Nets, and lingering issues with Prudential Center, we can't use either of them. Radio City's not an option either, given that the one player who exited downstage right into the pit was Swin Cash, back in her Detroit days. The plan, if the Liberty had managed to contain the goddamn midget, would have been for Game 3 to be at the Westchester Knicks' facility. (This is a bad plan.)

Do they have an arena there? Not sure if these are correct, but this is what I find for Knicks Practice facility:

This is the arena in Westchester where the G-League team plays and where the Liberty would have hosted Game 3 if they advanced.
