Before there was a new Yankee Stadium, there was this classic argument between Mike and the Mad Dog about whether there should be a new Yankee Stadium.

Chris “Mad Dog” Russo believed a new ballpark wasn’t needed because the Yankees were still packing the house and making money hand over fist.

Mike Francesa, a longtime Yankees fan, disagreed.

“I personally felt that they need a new stadium because I think it is cramped," Francesa said. "I think underneath it is cramped. They don’t have any of the modern amenities that Camden Yards has. They don’t have any of the modern amenities that any of these wonderful new ballparks have that I think are very fan friendly."

At one point, the argument became a debate about how long it takes to use the restroom at Yankee Stadium.
