The real fans will be there. No need to worry about the hipsters talking about prices being too steep. Screw people who complain about everything. New American way 

Damned hipsters!

Why would i do that  I want to sit front row a lot cheaper. 

"Cheaper"

I wish you would just lead with that, always.  At least be honest.  It's not about loyalty, it's not about the Jets, it's about your miscalculation that the PSL was going to be a financial disaster.  And it wasn't. 

Whatever your reasons for leaving the Jets season ticket holder family, it has nothing to do with PSL's or their owners.  It simply wasn't a lot of money.  And as history now shows, PSL's haven't cost us anything, the cost of the PSL on a per-year basis of $7 or $15 has been more than absorbed by the lack of a price increase since 2008.

Such a silly argument.  Naturally more Jersey plates at a game in NJ.   LI is still the center of the fanbase.  The social media heatmaps prove it definitively.   Grab a clip board, LOL.  Who is the old fogey here?  

The center of the fanbase is where the season ticket holders live.  And that would be New Jersey.  Heatmaps.  LOL.  Heatmaps don't pay the bills.  Season ticket holders do.

You being the so called "diehard" fan you say you are should be at every game if not with family then friends. 

Thanks I appreciate that offer and would probably take you up  on it if the situation arises and I need 4 tickets,thank you SAR I. 

I put a lot of effort into it all even at home with friends and family tomorrow we are having lobster tails,shrimp,chicken,ribs and a lot of cold beer. 

We agree to disagree. Enjoy the game the weather is supposed to great.

I attend all games except situations where I'm traveling or it's a school night and my kids can't make it, that's usually 2 games a year.  And since my seats aren't cheap and since I have 4 of them it doesn't make sense to eat $540 when I can sell them and 1) make back some money and 2) allow other Jets fans who don't have season tickets to enjoy the location.

Last year I went on strike, wasn't going to sit and watch He Who Shall Not Be Named under center and behind the bench, but that's an exception to an otherwise stellar run as a season ticket holder.  I have no issue with you as a person or as a fan except when you make it seem like PSL owners are bad fans, nothing could be further from the truth.

It's both, Stub Hub and the PSLs. PSLs were sold to the fans - at least in part - as an investment. In many cases they are a significant sunk cost (relative to the cost of an idividual ticket).  Some season ticket holders 'offer' the seats on Stub Hub in the hopes of defraying the cost of the PSLs. If they get the price they want then they sell the seats, usually to the opponents fans; if not then they go to the game. 

The Jets set up this adversarial relationship with its most loyal fans and I don't blame anyone for availing themselves of the opportunity to cut into the cost of the PSLs. After all, it's an 'investment,' not just a ticket to the game. 

I'm a long time season ticket holder.  I try to go to every game. This is just my observation based on being at the stadium and sometimes talking to 'road' fans in nearby seats.

Going to be record warm temps, we are in the playoff hunt, and between Stub Hub and Ticket Exchange there are over 10,000 seats available.  It can't be cost, you can get in the stadium for $25.

I'm disappointed in our fan base, this team deserves better support than this.  

I so wish I could go. Went to Jets/Giants last week and the Jags game. Have to get the Xmas tree with my family tomorrow. Remember it is the holidays.

Been saying it for years now. There is very little reason to buy season tickets any more. You can get in there for as little as $25 this week under absolutely perfect weather conditions and a playoff race. 

When the Jets beat the Titans and Cowboys I will be feeling pretty good about my season tickets. Patriots in town, ticket prices will be high when my funds are at their lowest. The day after Christmas.  :)

The biggest reason to have season tickets is the friendship that develop from watching the games with the same people week after week.

Love it.  No one said attending live sporting events was for everyone.  A pair of seats to a decent Ranger game plus parking will set you back $800.  Polo Grounds and their $1.25 bleacher seats are a thing of the past, folks.

SAR I

Attended Rangers/Canes 2 weeks ago with a group. Got tickets for $75 which included $10 credit for concessions(which are excellent and quick,as are the restrooms), as well as any number of great midtown restaurants for every price range pregame, and a subway ride home.Only seats in the new Garden that are kinda rough sitewise are under the bridge, and even there you still have a very good view. The Rock has only a few decent restaurants, but all 3 new/renovated  arenas are fan-friendly, open concourses, easy in and out, near public transportation. Barclays has some great bars and restaurants steps from the arena. And while Yankee Stadium and new Shea lack much close, they are also relatively reasonable in and out,have great concessions, public transportation, open concourses. Heck even the 2 minor league stadiums offer a lot of good fan friendly stuff. 

Simply out of all the new stadiums and arena built around here, MetLife is far and away the sh*ttiest and it's not close.They completely blew it. If you want to get people off their couches or out of sports bars, you probably need to host a playoff game more often than once every quarter century in that dump.

That's what it's all about, the guys in my section are great and really enhance the gameday experience.  Same for the guys that I sat next to in Giants Stadium for those 10 years too, it's really what makes being a season ticket holder so worthwhile.

Some day, we'll be hosting the AFC Championship Game and I'll be there with my long-time section-mates and we'll be dancing in the aisles as we win it and head off to the Super Bowl.  That's the moment we live for.

When I sat in 334 in the old stadium there was no email or internet. The first game of the season we would always be so curious to make sure everyone was coming back. The guy who sat in back of us was fighting cancer. That offseason was long, when he came back the next year and was in good shape, we were all pumped. The guy I sat next to, I looked him up on Facebook like 10 years later and sent him a friend request. He knows everything going on with my kids and family. Why? Because we bonded over the Jets.

It is the same way where I sit now. Really good group of people!

At least we yuppies took a shower every once in awhile and had aspirations beyond mom's basement and a pint of Ben & Jerry's.

No disrespect, but this is all imaginary nonsense.

PSL's were never pitched as some 'investment'.  They were nothing more than a price increase and a way to purge scalpers from the very best locations.  Everyone knows that every team in the NFL that instituted PSL's saw their fans licenses retain some value depending on on-field success.  That's it.  No other promises were made.

Seats that wind up in the hands of our opponents fans do so because not all season ticket holders can attend all 10 games.  Between summer vacation, trips to Asia, and a travel soccer tournament here or there I usually can only attend 7 of the 10 games I pay for.  Stubhub is great, and it's easy to sell tickets, but we have no control over who buys them.  Considering the number of home fans vs. road fans is on the order of a million-to-one, you would think Jets fans would scoop them up.

The adversarial relationship you refer to is between the Jets and the old timers who were purged from their cushy seating locations.  That's a fact.  However, there are more of us younger fans who were blocked for decades on decent seats simply because we were born too late and that wasn't fair either.  I look at it this way:  I'm in the seating location of some 70 year old who enjoyed a prime location for 30 years while I was f-cked in the upper deck or scrounging Newsday for a shady broker.  Now the shoe is on the other foot.  They had it great for 30 years, now its our turn.  We don't feel bad for them one iota.  They didn't take waitlisters feelings into account back then, they don't deserve our pity now either.

SAR I get to the damn game post up a tailgate picture for those of us at home to see the crowd on this beautiful day for Jets football. 

Leaving at 11, will arrive at 11:30 and will post up pics as soon as I arrive.

Not sure whether to wear shorts or jeans, that's the big dilemma at the moment.

Same here.

My section-mates in Giants Stadium in 233 were great guys, all blue-collar types, hysterically funny to listen to them and engage with them all game long.  They'd had their seats for almost 20 years before I showed up but they accepted us easily, it was great.

My section-mates in MetLife are just as good, just different backgrounds.  And unlike the 233 guys these 232A guys have kids my kids ages so my teens and their teens can carry on the tradition down the line.  The guy right behind me is really sarcastic and funny and his wife brings cookies  for the kids each Sunday.  It's the best part about the STH experience.  Saying hey to the guys each weekend and enjoying the Jets together.  Three guys from Jetnation up there too, we always high-five thanks to you and your site.

  When i attended my last game at Giants Stadium, none of the other season ticket holders around me asked me for any contact info.  I guess they didnt like all those years of being a belligerent asswipe. :lol:

Great crowd, only the usual 2,000 upper deck endzone seats noticeably vacant.

Sorry to drag this up, but you are kidding yourself if you think there isn't a problem, or it is isolated to the upper deckempty_seats.thumb.jpg.05d779ea0c68309248
