    • Thank you.  I believe that's the first nice thing that any non-season ticket holder has ever said to a season ticket holder on Jets discussion forums since their inception in 1996.  I'm printing this out, mounting it to a diploma board, and hanging it in my library. Best regards, SAR I
    • [Holding back my rage so I can type this without shaking my keyboard to pieces] As someone who was buried on the waitlist from 1988 to 2002 I can clear up your revisionist history: 1.  The same amount of opposing fans were in Giants Stadium.  Back then, those who held the seats between the 20's on the lower level, best seats in the house, were selling them to brokers.  They'd sell 4 games for 5x face value, attend 4 games for free, and use the rest of the cash to put their kids through college. 2.  Those same fans bolted once they were asked to pay fair market value.  The gravy train was over and they took off like the non-fans they actually were.  They were the offspring of loyal Shea Stadium fans who passed away and laughed all the way to the bank on the backs of 18,000 people on the waitlist like me. 3.  Once the PSL process started and those seats opened up, just who do you think took them?  Why do you think there is no more wait list?  That's right, US.  The waitlisters finally got their dream come true-  the ability to buy our way in to the seats we always wanted.  No more waiting 15 years to get nosebleeds up by the endzone flags; we could sit anywhere we wanted.  And now we do. The reason that the stadium isn't as full of Jets fans as it could be is because of the Giants Stadium Quitters.  Those who used the PSL as an excuse to run out on the team because a) their gravy train of tickets that paid for themselves ended and b) the Rex Ryan playoff runs ended.  So don't you sit here and spew your nonsense on a topic you know nothing about.  There are more loyal Jets fans in MetLife Stadium than there ever were in Giants Stadium.  All us waitlisters show up every Sunday to watch us win 2 home games a year if we're lucky.  The problem isn't PSL's or the fans with money that bought those great seats.  The problem are the lucky sperm club fans who got paid to attend Jets games for 30 years, never paid fair market value in their lives, forced real fans to wait lists, and who bolted the moment they were asked to do the right thing, to pay the right prices for their seats.  F-them.  We don't want 'em back.  Better to leave those seats open so when we're good again some 19 year old in college today becomes the brand new 23 year old season ticket holder when he graduates and enters the workforce.

    • I was in the exact position you were in the 2000s at Giants Stadium. I had 4 seats and they kept going up. I planned on buying a second home down south in ‘10, so I dropped the seats when I heard rumors of the PSLs  the year before they enacted them.  Im only on  Long Island between Thanksgiving and Christmas during the football season, so they just didn’t make sense for me. I know the resale value has gone down, but I would’ve never regretted buying if I were still up here all year. I wouldn’t have been looking to sell. I’m  fortunate in that money wasn’t an  issue, and I always enjoyed going. I just knew I wouldn’t be able to go to more then two games a year. I know you enjoy your seats, and you definitely made the right move. I’m happy for you.
