    Here they are since Weeb:

    Charley Winner, Ken Shipp, Lou Holtz, Mike Holovak, Walt Michaels, Joe Walton, Bruce Coslet, Pete Carroll, Rich Kotite, Bill Belechick, Bill Parcells, Bill Belechick, Al Groh, Herman Edwards, Eric Mangini, Rex Ryan, Todd Bowles, Adam Gase.

    Guess how many the Steelers have had since 69?


    Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher, Mike Tomlin.

    I heard Buck say last Thursday night the Jets are in a perpetual state of rebuilding. Yes.

    Then I heard Aikman say the Jets have not had consistent coaching. Yes. 18 coaches since 1969 proves it.

    The Steelers have won 6 SB's since '69.  We have won none.

    What's the reason for the big disparity?

    You know it boils down to ownership.

    The Steelers have competent ownership.  We do not.

    Haven't been this disgusted since well... LAST EFFIN' YEAR!!!

    If we don't have an ownership change, we are going to endure this torturous sh*t for a long time.

    End of story.  I rest my case.

    MetLife Stadium a burping farting petri dish. 

    People drink themselves blotto hours before the game, piss on cars, get to their seats halfway through the first quarter, drink some more, piss some more, then leave halfway through the fourth quarter.  Cursing, stumbling, mumbling geniuses.

    Deal me in for this rather than what we have now.

    The fake noise does nothing in baseball . It won't do anything in football either .

    The alternative of no noise will give you the same vibe as watching paint peel.

    Watching and following sports is a big part of my life and the last 5 months have been brutal with this pseudo sports environment we have now.

    But I gotta say when I did tune in to some Mets games, I was grateful they did have the piped in crowd noise because otherwise I would have had to check my blood pressure every 5 minutes to see if I had a pulse.

    I am for the crowd noise for the NFL and hope they do pipe in the Jet's chant for our games.

    Anything to make it look and sound like normal.

    We like the noise at the stadium.  It’s the chant that we abhor.  

    We don’t go to games to participate in a spelling bee with a bunch of 65 year old drunks. 

    SAR I


    A lot of those drunks partcipating in the spelling bee are under 65 years old.

  5. Deferred my 2020 STs yesterday.  Means I won't be going to a Jet game until Sept. 2021.

    Hoping by then the stadium will be full and back to the way it should be.  I am not interested in anything else.

    The Knicks offer for STHs is you make your first payment by August 17 to hold your seats and then payments deferred until November when they will have a clearer idea of when/if they will have a 2020/2021 season at MSG.

    I'm betting they will not.  My mindset right now is preparing on going to no MLB, NFL or NBA games in NY/NJ until 2021.

    Strapping myself in mentally.  Painful but I am prepared.

    As far as vaccine and waiting for it, the vaccine will be basically pointless because NOBODY will take it. We lose 40-60,000 people a year to the flu in this country and yet less than 40% of adults get the flu shot. There is NO CHANCE they get more than 40% to take a cover shot that obviously was rushed. 

    As far as your comment about restaurants, people are going crazy to return. Restaurants are getting plenty of people as they are opening with their limited outdoor dining, I have seen places absolutely jammed with people. I really think the protests were the tipping point in people being willing to remain locked up at home. The streets are full of traffic, people are everywhere, nobody is really hiding at home anymore. 

    I hope you are right about the restaurant industry.  I have a lot of friends in the business and what has happened to them is just heartbreaking.  The margins are tight and operators need 100% capacity to stay afloat.  And not to get political but what the governor of NJ did last week was so short sighted.  Pulled the plug on indoor dining after setting a firm date.  Operators went out and purchased food and supplies in anticipation of the indoor dining re-opening only for him to postpone that date indefinitely at the last minute.  Double freakin' whammy.

    I am rooting for the restaurant industry in a big way.

    I’m not missing the AFC Championship Game. 

    SAR I

    i wish I could take a nap and wake up 6 months from now and everything will be back to normal.  The shift in attendance in the short term will be interesting to watch. And then again what will the new attendance normal be in the sports and entertainment industry?  This segment I have read will be the last to come back.

    Hope you are right about ticket demand and the Jets in the AFC Championship.

    I for one will not be "All In" as far as renewing my STs until we are back to the way it was and should be.

  8. Even if we do play a season, I can't see STHs hell bent to get into the stadium until there is a rock solid vaccine that has already been administered to the masses.  And fans are going to wait a couple months to make sure the vaccine is legit.

    It's like the predicament the restaurants are in.  When the respective govs open up indoor dining, do you think the masses are going to flock to restaurants to eat indoors?  I don't think so.

    Tickets on the secondary market are going to be very cost effective.

    There will be no problem to get a ticket to a Jet's game on the cheap if you want to go.

    To me it's a no brainer to take a year off.  And another thing, part of the game day experience is to be in a packed house rooting for our team.  Don't know if I want to be in the stands during a game that resembles a socially distant gallery that looks like one you'd see at an unpopular tennis match.


  9. Hope everyone on this site is well and I sure hope this all ends by OD. It will end, it's just a matter of when.

    I'm speculating some social distancing STHs may give up their tix creating opportunities for those that want to upgrade.

    I am always looking for one and I am All In with my team for the long haul.

    Have to believe anyone looking to get in now for the long term will get some PSL bargains on the secondary market.

    Looking forward to when this mess is over and wish all of Jet Nation the best getting through this.

    Before you execute the transfer, go in the Jets app, go to the tickets in question and tap “ticket details” and it will show the relevant information such as the date and ticket price.  Take a screencap.

    When the ticket recipient receives the emailed tickets and hits “confirm” you will receive an email from Ticketmaster telling you that the tickets have been successfully transferred to (name goes here). 

    Those two documents should do the trick.

    SAR I

    Worked like a charm only I have an Android and had to take two screen shots of the "ticket details".  Couldn't take one "screen cap" to capture the entire page.

    I am told the only thing consistent today is change.  I'll get used to this too.

  11. i can't make it to the game on Monday night and plan to give my tickets to customers.  

    I know I can transfer the mobile tickets on the Jets website but how do I get a receipt for the tickets so I can expense them?

    I looked all over the website in the FAQs and could not find the answer.

    Anyone know how I can do this?

    Any insight would be much appreciated.

    Also don’t forget if you have an android you have to pull your seats up on the Jets app.  All those people using their phones at once makes it a challenge.  


    I have an Android and transferred my tickets to my son who has an Apple.  He transferred them to his Apple Wallet and we had no problem.  I did not want to risk using the Jets app at the gate since with the 2 PS games I was at the gate with my barcodes from the Jets app and yet the attendant couldn't scan them with her scanner.  On the Jets FAQ on Mobile Ticketing it said they are working on the Android Wallet option for Android users.  Once that takes effect I think we will all be good to go.

    BTW, another thing... I have Verizon as my provider on my phone.  Verizon is a major sponsor of MetLife Stadium.  How is it that the signal is atrocious there?  That really astonishes me.
