We're upper deck holders so I have no stake in this and can't really say from an emotional standpoint what I'd do. From a business standpoint, this is one of the worst returns on an investment out there. From a consumer standpoint, you are getting a seriously inferior product. But the Post put an article out today and the idea seems to have some steam. Anyone feeling like walking?

Anyone doing this is retarded. If you bought it you thought it was a long term investment and you're going to sell it at it's lowest value? What the hell is wrong with people.

In a section in the 200s in the end zone.

We will walk unless they waive the PSL. No way I would reupp unless they do so. And the Jets are not going to sue thousands of their own fans. It would be a PR nightmare.

Investment ?

I can see the financial circumstances change for many people with the economy et al.

And there are many people who are on a payment plan, so they have not paid the entire amount of PSL's as yet. I would not be surprised if quite a few of them walked away. I am hearing some people intend to do so.

So you're going to throw the money you already spent down the toilet? Why? Wait a few years till the team is better and you'll get your money back.

Just to be clear, by "walking away", I mean defaulting on your contract and not paying the upcoming PSL installment. Is that what they did and if so, how did the Jets treat them?

Aren't they being sued by whoever provided the financing? There is no way the Jets did that in house.

If anyone bought thinking this is an investment then they get what they deserve.

Seriously inferior? I didnt know there were guarantee's for winning with buying tickets and PSL's You're buying rights to purchase tickets for a game. Not the performance.

“I’ve come to the conclusion it’s just cheaper to go to road games and buy home games through StubHub,” said Kenny Scarabaggio, a season-ticket holder since 1983. “This whole PSL process was a rip-off.”


And yet he bought in...should have known what he was getting into and now want out and hoping the media will help embarrass the Jets so they dont sue people like him.


I hope the Jets sue him and every other PSL owner who defaults and demands immediate payment of the entire amount.

I believe these were sold to the public as 'investments.' Maybe not directly by the Jets, but when PSL's were originally conceived, they called them investments as a marketing tool. Since there is a resale market, it's fair to call them that. I'm not advocating that people should be guaranteed a profit, but I'm not going to say that it's ok for teams to call them investments when things looked good, and just "buyer beware" when things are tough.

Further, Giant PSL's have increased in value, that's what winning will do to their value. Which dovetails into,

... you really feel that the product put on the feel has been a good one?

The Jets are not suing anyone.

People who used the PSL payment plan (financing) understood that if they defaulted on a payment the Jets took control of the PSL and any money paid towards it was lost.

The problem is 2 seats cost like $3,000 or more for the season tickets and parking. Since so many fans can’t sell the seats even at cost to recoup some money they would rather walk away, with money lost, then have to buy the tickets and go to every game.

In the long run the money saved on the ticket cost will offset the money already paid to the PSL especially if they had the 15 year plan and put down the 20%. So for 2 seats each PSL $2,500, total $5,000, they’ve probably paid out like $1,600, if they made two payments.

So walking away letting the Jets have the PSL back and saving having to buy the tickets and going to the games saves money. People will just eat the money they put into the PSL since they can’t sell the PSL and even come close to breaking even and don’t want the tickets.

The Jets problem is since there is no market to re-sell these PSLs they are now getting back, the team needs the money from the PSL’s to pay the interest on the bonds that built the stadium.

That's great info, thank you. So by defaulting, the Jets get the rights to the seats back, but you're not liable in court for breach of contract? Because this is becoming quite the stir about being a PR nightmare, but would be ever more SAD if the press was stirring even more SHT into the pot with a red herring like this.

The product on the field has nothing to do with the PSL and whether its good or not. A PSL is for the right to purchase a seat to a game. Nothing more.

As for the investment... I cant say 100% sure the Jets never said its not an investment. I wasnt too involved with the process since I told them to go screw, but I cant see the Jets saying anything that would come back and bite them in the ass if people sued to get out of their PSL's.

Simply put. People who signed a contract for the PSL and expected anything more than the right to purchase tickets to a Jets home game are morons and get what they deserve if they try to wiggle out of their contract.

Hopefully someone has a copy of the contract, because the PSL contract on the Jets website states that the full PSL payment would be due in full if there is a default.

Upon termination pursuant to this Section 9, (w) Licensee will forfeit all monies previously paid to JSD hereunder, (x) Licensee will forfeit the PSL for the current (or upcoming) NFL season and all NFL seasons that follow, (y) JSD and its affiliates will have no further liability or obligation to Licensee, and (z) Licensee’s obligation to pay the outstanding balance of the PSL Fee, if any, shall be accelerated, making the full outstanding balance immediately due and payable

and even if the salespeople selling the PSL's to fans did lie to them about anything, like calling this an "investment" the Jets absolve themselves of any wrongdoing and most likely would have themselves well protected if this ever goes to an arbitrator, which it will since thats where this would be handled, according to the PSL contract.

That is how it was explained to me but the Jets could I have been lying to me. Wouldn't surprise me but I told the Jets I wasn't going to give any info on myself (finances) and they said nothing was needed if you don't pay they keep your money and re-sell the PSL. Again they are prone to lie so it wouldn't shock me if they did.

I wouldnt doubt they did lie. Those salespeople needed to sell. But the truth is always in the final contract.
