    No pressure Sam!!

    energy, noise and creating a home field advantage were discussed at last year's fan advisory event so you will likely hear it again next week. they actually monitor what gets the fans fired up to help create a home field advantage (songs/videos, etc to play on third downs; rewards program to get Jets fans to games, ....)

    they are concerned with filling the place up with Jets fans and creating a home field advantage.

    did a little bit of digging. the 620,496 attendance number includes 77,562 for the Falcons game. no way - the place was empty.

    these stats cant be right. the stadium holds 82,500 seats. based on the chart they averaged 77,500 people per game = 5,000 empty per game or 40,000 empty seats for the year. there had to be 70,000 empty seats at the Falcons game alone during the monsoon. maybe the 77,500 number is average seats sold per game (meaning tons of no shows) and not attendance but that also seems too high.
  5. the fake spike is overrated. they would have scored anyway.
  6. I was on the field before the game as well (used rewards points) and saw several fans wearing Pats gear. The confirmation email that came with the invitation said "All pre game on field guests should be prepared to root for the home team in Jets gear". Also says "... items for the purpose of autographing are prohibited". obviously this wasn't enforced.

    Jets Season Tickets

    No microphones or questions in advance. They had everybody together in the large media room/Auditorium and after a brief introduction of the staff, the fans would raise their hands and get called on to ask their questions. They did not have the smaller breakout sessions that Dcat mentioned above. I was at a session a few years back and they did have the smaller breakout groups that were more effective than this larger group session. The staff did hang around after the event so you could talk to them one-on-one with concerns or questions.

    No problem. It's worth going next year for the meet and greets/lobbying of the GM and coach, the tour of the facility and for the one-on-one discussions with some of the staff. The group session is more of a hit-or-miss and depends on which fans they call on.

    Jets Season Tickets

    They didn't talk about the Uber double parking. They had an hour for discussions and the group spent a lot of time on a handful of topics. At the end of the meeting the Jets said they welcome comments by email or phone on anything that you weren't able to discuss or that wasn't discussed at the meeting. The Jets got the message on the noise during the timeouts and said they need to dial it down. They also mentioned that the Knicks tried no noise during timeouts earlier this year and their fans pushed back on them so I would expect the Jets would have something playing but much quieter. A fan did bring up Fireman Ed but it was more of a complaint on how the Jets were trying to turn him into a movie star and how he got away with things that others couldn't do (bringing fans from other sections to his section, line for autographs, etc). The Jets blamed the national media and sports shows for building up Ed and it sounded like he wasn't on the Jets' payroll. One fan brought up bringing back the end zone to end zone chant from the old stadium. The Jets said that if anyone wants to lead the chant they can get up and do it and the camera will find them. It is all about creating noise and home field advantage and I get the feeling that they think the chant is important to the identity of the Jets. They brought up the energy & noise at games in Pittsburgh and feel it's a real home field advantage.
