Why are you making a big deal? Did you see the program for the Barclay center Siyum Hashas?!?! They are having at least 3 Chasidish Rebbas speaking there! (Viznitz, Kossov, Vyelopol & maybe more) so don't think they are discriminating against Chassidim! Besides the 2 Chasidish speakers in MetLife.
Can you post the program for Barclay center?

Funny you say that. Why do 40% of the  speeches (and probably 60% of the speech time) have to be in a language that not everyone understands? Enough with the mesorah crap itís a European language with absolutely nothing special about it.

But at least a subset of people can feel elite for the extra 20 minutes that the Yiddish speakers need to ramble on.
Wow you sound bitter

As a Sephardi, you can demand speeches in Hebrew.
And for Ashkenazim, it's a lot more than a "European language."

How about the language of the country we live in. Is that really too much to ask?
If the speeches are meant to inspire and a make a kiddush hashem, why exclude a large amount of people. Unless of course, giving a speech in a German based dialect is more important than making a kiddush hashem.

I can see how I  came off that way. But yes definitely very annoying to sit through Yiddish speeches. I think at least 15-20% of people think the same. For what?

I think it has a lot to do with who is speaking. The ones who speak yiddish will speak yiddish.

What percentage of the crowd do you think will be chassidim who use yiddish as their first language?

I'm planning on bringing my winter coat with BIG pockets, and just putting lots of food in there.
I'm surprised football fans never thought of that.
If you don't care why would you comment?

All food is coming from Michael schick catering

In the words of Chazal,  כל העולם כולו ניזון בשביל חנינא בני, וחנינא בני דיו בקב חרובין מערב שבת לערב שבת

Translated into todayís terms: The guys sitting in the warm boxes munching on hors d'oeuvres and fine beverages, are doing so in the zechus of the talmidei chachamim huddled in coats and scarves eating Reismans brownie bars and drinking water in the nosebleed section!

If you're really that jealous, I may be able to find you an extra seat in my box

Letís just say Iím not sitting in the nosebleed section :)

Itís actually kind of a symbiotic relationship: The guys in the boxes are somewhat subsidizing the cost of the nose bleed seats, but no one would be interested in paying for the boxes if not for the 85,000 people sitting outside.....

From what I understood, the event will be dry.

Unfortunately it was a joke. I wish I could.
