Jets 2015 Rewards Cards Arrive

Recommended Posts

I know. And this is the sad thing. SAR being one of the people who pay thousands to a team for the crap they put in front of them for the last 40 odd years, they have to be more creative to please the idiots(STH's) who still pay them for season tix.

 

The Knicks are coming around slower but not as quick as the Devils.

They had a Q&A with Phil Jackson and Steve Mills in the theatre at MSG about 3 months ago where all STHs were invited.

Then about 2 months ago they had 2 events at restaurants in Manhattan for the first 100 who RSVPed.  Complimentary food and adult beverages.

And at both venues there were 3 players floating around chatting and snapping photos with everyone.  I met Langston Galloway, Lance Thomas and Ricky Ledo (just waived).

Galloway is a great guy, St. Joe's graduate that you have to root for.  Spent quite a bit of time talking to him.

He even took the time to speak to my son by phone when my wife asked him - was happy to do it.

It's things like this that motivate you more to partner up and support your team.

The Jets need to get on board with stuff like this.

Thanks for sharing your experiences with Devils and Knicks. I hope idiots from Jets Marketing Department are reading this. In the end, there is probably 20k or 30K STH's for Jets. If they spend 30 bucks on each, the most they will spend is less than a 1 million bucks. Peanut money if you ask me.

Jets are stupid. Top to bottom. SAR the chosen 1 is right on this one.

I don't believe I've gotten anything from the Rewards program yet.  I went to the portal a few times last year but nothing ever caught my eye.  Got the note about points expiring and looked and nothing I wanted was within my reach, so I spent all my points bidding for a London trip (which would be awesome, though I've had to travel a lot for work this past year, and time away from family is sort of a precious commodity I have to manage.  And because of that I would ideally not go to that game).

 

So I probably will wind up getting nothing out of last year's program since I surely won't win.

 

Hope something better is there this year.  I will say I like what the Jets are going with things like Draft Night, Movie night, these small interview things with coach and GM, etc.  Hope they do more and more of that.

 

Regarding rewards, I know I've said this 1000 times but just give me a free beer or pretzel or whatever once or twice a year and I'll be happy.  Current system still seems too complex.

The day the Jets start following ANYTHING the Knicks do, is the day I finally cash out.

SAR the Chosen 1 is right about one thing.

Jets should take better care of season ticket holders imho. When you purchase stuff in bulk, piece price drops significantly. If Jets marketing folks use their brains, they will realize they can make a lot of STH holders happy by spending only 25 bucks or so per seat.

 

If you have a customer spending $50 a year, you can give him a $3 spatula.

 

If you have a customer spending $5,000 a year, you should give him something of value.  Doesn't need to be expensive.  Just needs to be of value.

 

If the Mets, who don't do anything right, can give fans a $20 baseball bat on a $50 ticket on bat day, there is no excuse for the Jets to give us such crap and think it's good for the brand.  Better to give us nothing.  Don't insult us by giving us junk.

You said it wasn't about status being a season ticket holder. 

 

It's not, but the baseball cap was something personal, it showed some thought went into it, it was something you'd wear and be proud of.  Give me a Season Ticket Holder t-shirt, give me a 'Season Ticket Holder Since 2001' hoodie, give me a mug like that, something that shows my commitment to the team and their reciprocation.

 

A spatula doesn't make anyone feel special.  Try giving your wife a mop for Mother's Day, see how she reacts.

7 observations from Day 1 of Jets camp: More than Sheldon Richardson

FLORHAM PARK — The activity at One Jets Drive on Thursday wasn't all about defensive end Sheldon Richardson's arrest, what he had to say before the rest of the planet knew about arrest, and how his arrest may impact him and the Jets. The team really did hold a training camp practice, too. It was their first of the summer. Players wore helmets and shorts, but no pads. Pads come later.

 

 

Some things we noticed:

 

 

1. Geno Smith vs. Ryan Fitzpatrick. Because it's always about the quarterbacks with the Jets, isn't it? Darryl Slater has a more detailed report here. Just know that both quarterbacks seemed to look sharper as the day wore on. It was interesting at one point to see general manager Mike Maccagnan, with his ever-present coffee in hand, making his way over to Smith during a position drill for a close-up look. All eyes really are on Smith this summer.

 

 

2. Right guard. Brent Qvale, an undrafted free agent from last year who spent his rookie season on the practice squad, split the first-team reps with Brian Winters, who began last year as the starting left guard before tearing his ACL. The Jets are clearly tinkering at right guard. We'll b watching to see if Oday Aboushi or Dakota Dozier get any runs with the 1s on Friday.

 

 

3. Sheldon Richardson. Before the arrest thing, which no one—not even the folks upstairs—knew about, Richardson ran with the second-team defense. The Jets were already aware that Richardson had been suspended for the first four games of the regular season, so they're already planning their practices for just that. Rookie Leonard Williams and usual-backup Leger Douzable both got snaps with the first-team defense in Richardson's stead.

 

 

PLUS: The police probable cause statement on Sheldon Richardson's arrest

4. Play of the day. Shaq Evans, a fourth-round pick who spent last season on the practice squad, smoked cornerback Antonio Cromartie for a long touchdown in a 7-on-7 drill, with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick hitting Evans in stride. Cromartie wasn't all bad on Thursday, though later on, undrafted free agent Jonathon Rumph faked him out on a quick out, and Cromartie got up after the play and grabbed his ankle, though he turned out to be fine.

 

 

Highlights from Jets first practice at training camp

5. Dee Milliner. Milliner, who's coming back from a torn Achilles and did not start camp on the PUP list, was kept out of team drills, though head coach Todd Bowles said Milliner should begin to transition back into the mix in the days ahead. More here.

 

 

6. Who played well? Wideout T.J. Graham made a bunch of catches all over the field. Cornerback Dexter McDougle, coming off ACL surgery, looked pretty good and even had an interception. Fitzpatrick has a strong arm. Running back Daryl Richardson, who was on last year's practice squad, showed a burst of speed. And tight end Wes Saxton made a couple of nice catches.

 

 

7. Who didn't play well? It was one practice, so let's not get carried away, but rookie quarterback Bryce Petty, who likely won't play this year anyway, had a bit of a tough go.

 

 

The Jets are back at it Friday, with stretching at 1:50 p.m. and practice slated to start at 2:20. Unlike Thursday's practice, Friday's is open to fans who have a valid ticket.

Dedicated my ass you have more fun  money to spend thats it.  You yourself aren't dedicated you miss games and bad mouth the Jets organization and its fans any chance you get when i was a season ticket holder I missed 0 games.

 

2 kids in college,property taxes,car insurance,vacations my priorities changed I can watch the same game in the luxury of my own home and still be a die hard dedicated fan if you think going to the stadium changes who you are you are wrong.

 

And I never cheered underage girls to show their t!ts at the Gate D spirals like you did Mr. Dedicated and Loyal.

Dedication 1:  From 1996 to 2010 I drove from New Hampshire to New Jersey 4x a year.  14 years, 56 trips, 10 hours per trip.  I can't be challenged on dedication.  I don't think you can find another fan who went through this much effort to see the team he loves live in the stadium.

 

Dedication 2:  Being a Season Ticket Holder means investing your time and your money which is something a TV Viewer does not do.  Someone who spends $5,000 a year on tickets and 7 hours each gameday cannot be compared to someone who spends $0 on tickets and 3 hours in the living room.  It's ridiculous to even say such a thing.

 

Kids:  I have 4 kids, all need their tuition paid for, my priorities changed only regarding Sunday/Monday/Thursday night games which are impossible to attend due to school schedules.  All other games, I'm there unless I'm in China.

 

Gate D Sprials:  Not going to work.  Bunch of 30 year old strippers and biker wives, I didn't cheer anyone, I laughed at the absurdity.

 

JoeWilly:  You talk a good game but you don't attend any.  Show up or shut up.

Ive spent more on season tickets and traveling to away games than you will spend in a lifetime I still attend home games at my convenience and when I can afford it and when I do I sit in way better seats than you do. 

 

Enjoy the season it must be hard for you being the miserable self centered person you are but I wish you the best.

2000 to 2009- 10 games a year.  From northern massachusetts.  in every kind of weather.  I missed 2 games in that time.  i went to every preseason game even though it was on weeknights.  So yeah, there are others who makes that much effort.

 

kinda sucks making that sort of dedication for a team that routinely punches you in the dick.

I have my two old hats from the old stadium.  Changed sections after year two in the new stadium so that hat is now worthless.  I still have my Season Ticket Club jacket my father and I each paid I believe $40 for back in 1998.  17 years later and still in good condition.

46 days until the first tailgate, but who's counting.  The flags were on the Jets 2014 NFL Network show that aired last week.

 

I have to try to stop by for a beer at some point this season.  So hard by the time I set up it's time to make breakfast and then lunch and then time to go inside.

Wow, we could have carpooled and saved a fortune on gas and tolls.  I would always pit-stop at Rein's Deli on the way down and the Mobil station and rest stop up at Sturbridge on the way back up.  I could kill the first hour of the trip back north by listening to the postgame show, but by mid-Connecticut it would cut out and things would get a bit dull.  Good times.

Will u 2 stop bickering about Who has the biggest schlong? Sar is dead right about one thing though. I spent $5000 for my tickets. And another month I will spend another $3000 for PSL payment. Well I'm not crying the blues because I made this decision and I am not upset by it, The types of gifts that they hand out are insulting. if you're going to send me out a score for a spatula and save the money and don't even bother. I spent thousands of dollars over the years to watch this terrible product and the best they can do is send me a beer cozy? Or a cheap bag drawstring valued at about three dollars on Amazon? WTF!
