Barker & Cougher Report the Islanders Will Get An Arena At Belmont Park

Craig Cougher reported this morning that there will be a new arena built on the Belmont Park track site that will house the New York Islanders in the future. Nassau County political reporter Bob Brodsky wasn't as ready to commit just yet, tweeting:

Craig may be on the right track here with Belmont but nation must understand that it's going to an RFP where anyone can bid before adding:

Yes. Just want fans to understand it's the state that picks a tenant; not the Isles picking a site to give a rose like it's The Bachelor

Unless the Busch family buys the Isles from Scott Malkin & Jon Ledecky and moves them to St. Louis, of course.
