I dont think they will face an epic sh*t storm of bad PR. There are lots of people who believe you signed up for a PSL, you deserve whatever crap happens to you if you reneg on the contract. Thats whats wrong with people... they dont want to be taken at their word and want to weasel out of their contract because theyre unhappy the team sucks. They dont want to be held accountable for what they do. And when they dont get their way?? Whine to the media that the big bad Jets want their money.
I hear what you are saying but I am not trying to weasel out of my contract. I did sign up for a contract and I should fulfill it. That being said, the people that gave me my mortgage don't frisk me as I enter my house, yell at me for walking the wrong way on my sidewalk or parking in a particular spot, and they don't threaten me when I'm late on a payment. In fact when I was having trouble paying some years back they called me and asked me sincerely what they could do to help me retain the mortgage with them and arrangements were made. I am paying the Jets and their staff for the privilege of treating me like a jerk, like they own me. On top of that they are playing some incredibly horrible football and these tickets are worth almost nothing.
Anyway, I'm stuck with a hard decision here. I would like to keep my PSL's as I do like going to the games but I can go to the same 5 games for a quarter of the price off of stub hub. For people wondering what the Jets stance is on this, here is an excerpt from the letter I received last week, with tomorrow being my cutoff date for defaulting.
As you have not made payment, this letter serves as Jets Stadium Development's ("JSD") notice of default ....if you do not cure this default by making payment withen ten days of the date of this letter, your rights under the Agreement will terminate, in which case:
- JSD will retain all monies you have paid to date related to your PSL
- Your obligation to pay the outstanding balance of the PSL and any liability under the Club Seat License Agreement shall be accelerated, making the full outstanding balance immediately due and payable, which JSD intends to fully enforce and collect
- YOU WILL HAVE NO FURTHER RIGHTS UNDER THE AGREEMENT (i.e., you will not have the right to purchase tickets to Jets games at MetLife Stadium); and
- JSD will have no further obligation to you for the above referenced account
So, take the money I've paid so far, sue for the remaining balance, and ban me from buying Jets tickets....awesome.
