NO WAY our imbecilic, trust fund, never worked a day owner has the cash or the inclination to try and get something built in NY after his last experience getting spanked by the big boys.  Only thing Woody Johnson has ever achieved other than his last name is an Ambassadorship which he purchased and which no one else of his means probably wanted or he would have lost that too.

Doesn’t have to be 80,000 seats. 
60,000-70,000 is the magic number.  Make the seats closer and raises the demand. 

That's what they have now and they consistently are Top 5 in Attendance %. Makes no sense at all to go down. Decreasing crowd size doesn't help you sell more vending.

Queens is one of the worst places on the planet. No thanks. Manhattan as it should have been. Westchester would be a suitable backup. 

No one outside of Long Island likes Long Island. And spare me the nonsense about the Jets "roots". The Jets' roots suck. We should shed them forever, not revisit them. If you still think NY sports have geographic lines, you're still living 40 years in the past.

They’re in the top 5 in attendance, why would he need to cut back in seating

The stadium is never full, is always filled with opposing fans, and the upper deck too far away from the action.

65-70,000 is the perfect number.

But yet they seek their tickets.  
if they win, the stadium will be filled with eager Jet fans.  You think the stadium has visiting fans because there are too many seats in the stadium?  

82,000 seats sold and full is better

Getting out of NJ would make me happy regardless of which NY borough would get them.  Queens would be extra sweet to get back to the roots.

Curious, other than making it closer to a different group of fans what’s the difference NJ or some other site in NY/NJ.  As I said besides the fact some want it close to home to cut back the commute and don’t care about NJ fans commute?

they are always begging to get rid of seats.  it's bad business in my opinion. 

have 70k seats but good demand.

10 games x 10k less seats = 100k less tickets per year.  say $50 per seat net revenues (probably less since these would be the worst seats) - $5MM per year.  

The Jets are winning and yet they still can't sell out the crappy seats.

Anything would be better than the current situation.  Awful location, stadium and fan experience.

The counter to that would be how many fans were upset during and after the game Sunday because of the stadium?

the mike white chants would have been louder in queens?

Moving the team to Queens at this point is a great way to:

1. Have people stop paying what is left on their PSL balance

2. Not sell another PSL

3. Lose a bunch of corporate sponsorship stadium $ with attendance being down

Better idea, stay out of the way and let Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh do what they are already doing. Fixing this franchise and selling out the larger stadium that you already paid for.

They aren't moving.
