Jets fans are the worst. 12k tickets unsold for Monday


Recommended Posts

You're not real fans.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/10/07/lombardi-jets-had-12000-unsold-tickets-as-of-friday/

At the tail end of NFL Network’s First on the Field, Mike Lombardi dropped a factoid that could set everyone’s clock in New York to Tebow Time.

Lombardi said that 12,000 tickets to Monday night’s game between the Texans and the Jets were unsold as of Friday.

As Lombardi surmises, the struggles to fill the seats will make it more likely that Tebow will get a shot, at some point, to start at quarterback.

Meanwhile, that many unsold tickets could have triggered a local blackout of the game, unless the Jets bought up the balance at 34 cents on the dollar.  If they did, it all happened quietly.

Now that the 12,000 (du)cats are out of the bag, it won’t stay quiet much longer.

This is my game day experience: 10:00-10:17 AM: Get in car, fill tank ($44), buy road snacks ($9). 10:17-11:00 AM: Drive south, cross George Washington Bridge, start wait in turnpike traffic

The Mara family is football royalty. Mara didn't layoff or furlough any employees during the lockout. Unlike Woody Johnson. Mara was against PSL's, unlike Woody Johnson. Mara did not divide the pa

Hiring the right football people is the difference. I'm not getting into the QB debate - but the Giants dont win without the rest of the team besides Eli.

The cost is too high and the live game "experience" does not justify the cost and hassle. There is no line at the bathroom, refrigerator or grill at my house in front of the 60 inch HDTV. When they play like crap, there is a lot less suffering.

The huge advantage of NFL season tickets vs. other sports used to be the reasonable cost. Thise days are long gone now.

The expectation is the Jets will get their asses kicked, Late game during the week, very expensive, circuits act team with the defending champs in the same town, this is no surprise.

When the jets learn that winning sells tickets, not a circus act, this wont happen

Wrong it's not price, it's the dogsh*t product on the field. Thats where it begins and ends.

Absolutely wrong. The Jets were sold out for 40+ years despite fielding comically awful teams. The stadium was sold out for every game Kotite coached here. Think about that.

Why should fans spend money on this joke of a franchise that has done nothing but humiliate it's fanbase with incompetence and chatter for the last 2 years? Screw them. They deserve the humiliation.

Within the past 2 years, they were beating New England in Foxboro and heading to the AFCCG.

So I guess you mean 2 seasons and by seasons you mean 1.25 seasons.

The stadium was still full. The empty seats on monday night are going to be hilarious.

That's because corporate "fans" (the ones for the most part who are paying) don't care as much.

As Shane says, the stadium has been sold out forever. Regardless of the quality of the product on the field.

The bright side, as Tom has pointed out elsewhere, is that unsold tickets are the fastest route to a Tannenbaum firing.

Ooh! Attribution!

It's awful how easy it is to predict the near-future of this franchise. Just predict the most negative, asinine conscious course of action, and their management group will fall in line every time.

There was never the combination of high prices plus humiliating product.
