Jets Letter to Season Ticketholders

Recommended Posts

Its hard to do - but I think I am leaning towards the refund. I just dont see 80k people in a stadium this fall. Idk if I see any fans or even games. We arent even into the fall yet where people legit get sick with other things. Every spiked temp on game day may mean a player needs to miss a game.

You’re probably right.  Not to mention the whole league could be shut down if a team or two has a significant outbreak, and the potential blame for putting players at risk if heaven forbid a player or coach dies. 

Maybe it’s just best that all leagues take the year off.  

SAR I


I think they will end up taking the year off unfortunately.

On the off chance the Jets do make the playoffs and we're in a post-pandemic world next January then I'd just buy game tickets on the secondary market.

With limited to No capacity for the entire regular season, teams NOT selling single game tickets(this could change) and prioritizing STH for available tickets, the resell value on the secondary market will be insane.  Playoff tickets will cost a Zillion dollars!

Its possible that a limited supply pushes the prices up. I am personally ok with that because after Goodells comments on BLM and his lack of action on the Pats for 20 years I am kind of over the NFL anyway. Hopefully the value of my PSL goes up with your prediction and I can finally dump it.

I’m waiting to see how things go for MLB.  They have the best chance of getting a season in.  If they can’t make it happen all sports are finished for 2020.

Then don’t bother.  MLB is going to collapse.  Oldest rosters of any sport, overweight and out of shape players everywhere, coaches are sedentary old men, not a sport used to wearing face masks, rosters with ethnicities statistically being hit the hardest, slow paced and prolonged contact at the plate and on base, it’s got everything going against it. 

NHL has a chance due to existing use of face guards, a realistic quarantine, and a less needy group of players.  Hockey players are underpaid hard workers, tough nosed, disciplined, smart, and well-conditioned.  Coaches skate in practice every day too.

If I were a betting man, I’d say this is the running order for a possible season in 2020:

NHL
NFL
NBA
MLB

I’m looking at chance of infection and not how their body handles infection.  If a player in any sport is infected it’s going to be at least a 14 day quarantine even if they are asymptomatic.  
 

NBA and NHL are indoors.  MLB is outdoors and it seems like players will be spaced out in the stands when they are not on the field.

Broke my heart, but for the the first time since 1977, I won't be using my season tickets.  I am skipping this season, though I am letting the Jets put my money towards 2021. Feels almost surreal, but we have to be realistic.

If MetLife is socially distanced for the next few years a PSL will be the only way to get into the stadium.  So, yeah, I can see fans wanting to see Darnold take the MVP and the Jets host the AFC Championship Game and picking up PSL's to a stadium that still has 20 years left on the clock as a way to guarantee that.

There are 18,000 Jets fans with PSL's.  People like me who wrote checks to the Jets with 3 or 4 seats.  And we have all the good locations in the stadium.  And it's been tough times for the team.

So when the Jets turn the corner, and Sam Darnold is one of the best QB's in the AFC, and we win the division for the first time, and it's clear that we've got 5-10 years of great football on the horizon, guess what?

There are 5,000,000 Jets fans out there.  And only 18,000 of 'em get to have the great seats.  Cha-ching.

And most of them are not stupid enough to buy a PSL .

There is nothing stupid about a PSL. Mine cost $16,000.  Chump change.  Got me off the waitlist and in the exact seats I wanted at some old timers expense.  Awesome.

Well, it is to me, so perhaps you should be calling other Jets fans "stupid".

There is risk there no doubt. Baseball will be a good test. They play every day. If they can make it through the season without a major outbreak football should be fine.

I am having a hard time on the tickets though. Still might pay just in case, it would be rough for me not being there if that was an option.

Same here.  The brain wants one thing, the heart wants another.  And I know we're going to have a memorable season, too.  If we were headed for 5-11 there would be no question.  But with 10-6 right there for the taking, it's tough.

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.

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 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.

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.
