@Maxman

Are we going to meet for the first preseason game as well? 

I will be in the same spot for every game as long as 1) My RV keeps running and 2) I am alive.

So I want to say yes to the first preseason game. :)

Great. I lost my Jets game buddy to Florida. I am like a stray dog. Will look for your RV each time I go to a game.

Oh that stinks. Definitely let me know if you go to any games.

Max

Lots open at 5:30. Practice starts at 7. Seems like a very short time for setting up a tailgate. What do you think?

WOW. I think I am calling the Jets tomorrow to check on that 5:30 part. Definitely isn't worth taking the RV up there for an hour tailgate. No way am I setting all that up for something that short.

I will call them and post an update tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up.

Hey, I just received an email from the Jets inviting me into the Commissioners club to meet and listen to Mike Macagnan, Neal Glatt, and a host of others with free food.  That starts at 5:00 before scrimmage begins.  I have to RSVP to be added to the Jericho List, Anybody else get that invite?

That is great, I didn't get that. They usually do these to really small groups. Definitely go that will be a good experience.

I have a message into the Jets about the parking lot opening time for the scrimmage. Once they respond I will post it here.

It says 5:30 on my tickets and on Jets web site. My hopes are slim. Max, let's plan a killer tailgate for Titans game.

I spoke to the Jets today. They said the gates open at 5:30, meaning you can get into the stadium at that time.

We can get into the parking lot at 4pm, maybe a little earlier. But that still doesn't leave a lot of time for a tailgate.

Maybe we can do a different roll call for a meetup inside the stadium and watch practice together? Let me know who is going, thanks.

Not me Max. I was hoping to tailgate for a few hours. I will be there for the Titans game as soon as lots open. See you then

Anyone here going to the Green & White scrimmage at Metlife on 8/5? If so, let me know and come tailgate with us.

We will have the RV there and it would be great to do a JetNation meet up before the season starts. Let me know if you can stop by!

I won't be able to make it but it would be awesome if JetNation somehow streams the scrimmage!  You guys should do a periscope or facebook live!

Max:

Let me know what time you are going to be at your RV.

At the very least I will see you there.  Wife is a possibility.

I won't be at the scrimmage that long and won't be able to hang.

Am basically going to check out my new seats in 129.

I look forward to meeting you.

If we streamed the scrimmage live the site would pretty much be shut down from the legal fees. That lawsuit from the Jets would be costly. Any Lawyers in the house? :)

I know there's not a lot of time, but we can tailgate at this thing, right? I am thinking of a little grill and some burgers and dogs. Also, does anyone know if there will be kids stuff there? Like bouncey houses and what not? Thought I saw that mentioned somewhere.

Note sure if I'm going. Gametime decision tomorrow afternoon. Where is everyone meeting? Would love to meet you all.

How much do you think they'll charge for parking?  regular season amount?

I am pretty sure parking is free. I am going to be pissed if it isn't. During the draft parking is free.

I told the Jets I was tailgating in my RV, they said there would be no problem getting in at 4pm, maybe 3:30.  I am aiming to get there for 4. 

Stadium gates open at 5:30, will probably head in around 6:30.

Here is the official release from the Jets:

Green & White:

Fans get to see head coach Todd Bowles and The New York Jets continue their preparations for the 2017 season with the Green & White Practice/Scrimmage at MetLife Stadium. Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and practice will begin at 7:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public, but tickets are required and can be found at newyorkjets.com.

Pre-Practice Notes and Entertainment:

Legends Weekend: As part of NY Jets Legends Weekend, fans will have the opportunity to meet and get autographs from more than 60 former Jets players. Legends will be signing autographs in the island party area and in the NFL Experience Tent, both located in Lot G.

MILITARY FLAG FOOTBALL GAME: Local military and First Responders will play a flag football game on the field from 6:20-6:40 p.m.

Post-Practice:

Team Autographs: After practice, fans will have the opportunity for autographs around the lower bowl wall.

Gen Jets Kids Club: Following practice, 150 members of the Gen Jets Kids Club will be selected to move down to the field for autographs.

Thanks, Max! Can I look for you in the lots?

Yes sir, absolutely.

Had a bunch of back and forth on this but the RV will be making an appearance. Going to get there at 4pm hopefully. Smaller crowd than I thought so we were going to do this video thing with the Jets but I pushed it back to another day. So we will just be hanging out until the scrimmage. Not sure where I will park, not sure what lots are open. But I usually try to park in the back of the lot away from everyone.

Here is what you can look for. Definitely stop by, park near us and hang out. Thanks.

I might make a surprise appearance. Please let us know where you park your RV once you settle.
