    Lots of concerns with this.

    I don't think any of us are for 4 games.  But I think most of us see value in having at least one single preseason game before we potentially send a rookie out there to protect Sam Darnold's blind side.

    Also, unless they dramatically expand the roster including the PS I think we can say goodbye to every valuable UDFA that Joe Douglas worked his tail off to sign.  Can we really keep a guy like Lawrence Cager over a Vyncint Smith without seeing some game time?  What about Bryce Huff over a Bashem, Luvu or Langi?

    Do we risk putting QB James Morgan on the PS where he could be grabbed by another team for their QB3 or do we just cut Fales and White today since there's a 99.999% chance that Darnold, Flacco and Morgan are etched in stone?

    This is going to be really, really tough on coaches and personnel guys....but I feel even more for rookies and UDFA's.  Imagine getting drafted or signed as a UDFA by a NFL team and never, ever once getting to put on the uniform in any sort of game before getting cut.  Kinda sucks.

    Most likely the roster will be expanded like baseball did.

    I paid in full a while back but I believe the Jets haven’t collected from fans who do monthly payments since March.  They have time to decide since they aren’t collecting any money yet.  

    Paid in full too for the Jets. See what happens but not a good sign with the Giants doing that.

    At the time, I opened a thread on the now defunct ESPN forum for the Jets to move back into the first round to acquire Rodgers.   Then, again these are the Jets and you are a perennial loser franchise by making idiotic decisions almost all the time.  Last dumb decision passing over a proven great offensive genius SB winner over a fraud.  That decision probably set the Jets back at least two years.  

    Hopefully the Jet total misses end with JD running the draft.

    2012:  Terry Bradway reportedly pounded the table for Russell Wilson in the 2nd round.  Tannebaum took Stephen Hill instead.

    2014:  Mistakenly trying to build around Geno Smith, John Idzik took bust TE Jace Amaro in the 2nd round with Jimmy Garoppolo still on the board.  JN Draftniks like @HessStation were calling for Jimmy G in that spot.  

    2017:  The QB-needy Jets passed on both Deshaun Watson and Pat Mahomes, opting instead to take Jamal Adams and roll with Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty.  @dbatesman and @JiF were two of the more vocal JN posters calling for the Jets to take Watson at 6.

    2018:  Macc offered more money than any other team for Kirk Cousins' services.  The Jets' roster was so bad that Cousins took less coin to join the Vikings, much to the chagrin of @Warfish.  The Jets seemed to dodge a bullet, trading three 2nd rounders to eventually take Darnold.  However, the best QB in the draft, at least to this point, has clearly been Lamar Jackson.  

    Don't leave out Aaron Rodgers, who would have been available if the Jets did not trade their 1st rd pick for Doug Jolley.  Sad to think of the losers they took at times when they need a QB.   JD better not continue the pathetic draft record the Jets have had.....

    I'm actually thinking about adding two more seats, I currently have two.

    Crazy, right?

    I think they're going to be in the playoffs next year.

    I suffer from FOMO lol.

    Thoughts?

    Good Idea, just make sure you get a parking pass with that.

  7. Just looking for something to draw readers in.  It's easy to speculate on moves, but at the end of day you need to see what the overall market looks like before saying who stays and who goes.  Joe D gets to step up to the plate this off season and we will see if he is able to fill the holes.  So far he has done a good job at acquiring some depth guys.  Adams, Bell and Anderson all stay IMO unless Anderson get a ridiculous deal elsewhere.  

  8. PSL'S cost less than a decent vacation, and they were bought over 10 years ago.  I am amazed people are still fussing about that.  The real problem is once the Jets actually get good, (and yes it will happen) then people will be scrambling to get tickets.  A good Jets team stops the reselling and when you think that the Jets won their last 5 home games, perhaps things are looking up.  May be a good time to invest in season tickets while they are available before the door shuts.

    It's simple.

    There are 17,000 Jets fans who write season ticket checks to the team each year.

    There are 8,000,000 Jets fans living in the NY Metro area.

    When one of the 17,000 fans can't attend a game because of a family conflict, it's up to one of the 8,000,000 fans to buy their seats on Stubhub.  For below face value.  For $39 most games. 

    That's what "fixes the infestation problem".

    It is not for season ticket holders to be under pressure to attend 8 home games if they can only make 7; it is up to the non-season ticket holder who doesn't go to any games to man up, fan up, pay up, and attend 1 measly home game.  That keeps the enemy fans away.

    SAR I

    Fact is the people for the most part are front runners and don’t want to waste their time going to see a team that is out of the running for a playoff spot. 
     

    yesterday was a great day and a fun one to be a loyal Jets fan.

    The road fan infestation is definitely a problem and I have no idea how we solve it.  Probably has something but not everything to do with not sucking. 

    Nothing you can do about that, NFL travel is a industry and with easy access to tickets,and NY being a destination, we will always have 10-20% opposing fans in the stadium, and the teams on this years schedule there were more as they are "National" teams.  Next year we have the below home schedule so much the same with higher % of visitors and prob will also be hosting Cleveland again.  Should be another good year to sell your tickets if that is what you do.

    The Four Main Offenders of "the Jets and Giants suck here in 1980 so I'm going to root for the _________ because they are winners" New York area fans.  So many of my junior high school classmates rooted for these teams back then and those were the fans in the building this year.

    0 for 4.  Sent every one of them away, weeping.  Ruined the seasons of Dallas, Oakland, and Pittsburgh as well.  A very nice treat for the home crowd.

    Really felt good.

    You left out beating the Giants

    Just taking into account the two preseason games and the last two Games [fins and Steelers] of the season you over paid for your tickets by about $800 just for those 4 games. Only 3 games went for face or over face this year [bills cowboys and giants]

    But I just received a Joe Klecko autographed football yesterday as a thank you for being a STH.  Also got two Anthony Becht signed footballs and four Eric Coleman signed footballs.  That knocks the $800 overpay down to $700.

    You forgot to calculate all the games you over payed for....all games including preseason you could of got for a fraction of the price on third party sites. 

    That psl is costing you a lot more than you think

    Not worried about saving a few hundred dollars a year when they are bad.  Like most on this forum, I am looking forward to better days. Otherwise why waste time here....

    I fully paid the $8 grand total for 2 seats in Mezz A, not as an investment but more to guarantee playoff tix when the glory years kicked in.  Still waiting on that one.  They are in the first row so I can usually get most of my money back on the tix, but I am also considering giving them up.  The PSL fee, while annoying is not a huge financial consideration.  If I go on a cruise or a weeklong vacation I will spend $5-8 thousand for the week and and then it is gone, so viewed with that perspective I still have the seats after 10 years and am fully aware that the PSL is worthless (actually eliminated now).   

    yes guarantee is a better word.  and BTW the price of vacations is ridiculous these days, but got to do them.

    Exactly.

    My PSL worked out to $13 per seat per game.  Even if the Jets did raise ticket prices the way we thought, and they of course didn't, it would have been beer money.  That's what all these years of PSL bickering is about.  The cost of 1 beer and 1 pretzel per game.  Last Sunday at the Fins game I bought my son a hot chocolate ($9) and a pair of chocolate chip cookies ($8)......OMG, where's the protest over that?

    Hey, if someone can't afford $13 a game to get great seats I understand, we were all young and poor once.  But jeez, enough already with the "Jets suck PSL's are the worst pretend fan outrage goes here".

    SAR I

    Most sections in the Mezz no longer have PSL's so that excuse is gone and I think what many forget is that I started this to try to get more Jet fans to actually attend the game to get more green in the stadium, but it appears that many want the green in their wallets....

    Simple, right?

    And the Jets haven't raised ticket prices since 2008.  Add up what we expected to pay in a brand new stadium and what we weren't charged?  In my case, that difference over the last 10 years paid off my PSL's entirely.

    The whole PSL thing turns out to be a whole lot of nothing.  Didn't cost anything.  What it did was allow fans on waitlists or in bad locations to get great seats.  That's a good thing, not a bad thing.  The Shea Stadium generation was taken care of when they moved to Giants Stadium.  Then the Giants Stadium generation was taken care of when we moved to MetLife Stadium.  It's all good.  Except for youngsters who believe what they hear on sports radio.

    SAR I

    Yes, very simple math and convenience.  Mezz Yankee tickets are more expensive that Jets Mezz tix.  Good thing if you could afford the upfront hit and def was a good way to improve your view.
