Re: Performers requiring private bathrooms
Being a Yankee fan myself and knowing exactly what you are referring to at the old stadium, I can only say that the new arrangement is for security reasons rather than a negative reflection on the players. If you get to the stadium early enough, you will still have an opportunity to interact with the players who are genuine in their desire to meet with their fans.
The private-bathroom thing smacks of performers who think they're too good to mingle with the rabble.
Something similar is why you will never see me at the new Yankee Stadium even though I'm a Yankee fan.
In the old days, after the game, the players would walk from the stadium to their parking lot through a gated passageway. Fans could watch the players, and the players would interact with the fans, joking around etc. It was fun. Now, the new Stadium has an underground passageway to the parking lot, so the millionaire players don't have to even make eye contact with the rabble.
