Hold the wheel and drive
And I know you are smart enough to know $16,000 up front is not the same as a little bit a day. Much different.
What they did occurred when the Jets has a waiting list 10 years long. I know. I was on it.
Today, new economics, all those squatters are out of the ecosystem, forced out by the God-given PSL process, no more waiting list. I'm not standing in the way of someone else who wants a decent view. And even if I was, I have paid for my seat license and therefore have the right to sell them to whomever I want at whatever price they want to pay.
Had the Jets had a similar system in place in 1988, I could have written a nice fat check to the Giants-fan-grandson of a Shea Stadium Jets fan and gotten his tickets away from him. It wasn't available to me. That's what's different.
For the tenth time, if there were no PSL's then all the brokers and Giants fans and squatters who have been infesting us since 1985 wouldn't have left. They'd still be sitting there. They'd still be preventing loyal fans from getting good seats. They'd still be forcing us to be waitlisted.
The "good deal" is the ability to get any seat we want without being told "no". Well worth the $13 per game it costs. Get that through your head.
Value is in the eye of the beholder and the fact is nobody knows what the future will hold regarding value. I look at the size of this thread in a year when the Jets were in the hunt going into December and wonder what will the fan reaction be when the season ends in late October one year? When I read that the Jets have the highest average seat prices in the NFL ( that doesn't include PSLs and in a shared stadium), I just shake my head in disbelief. There certainly is a supply and demand factor. The fact is Woody makes out like a bandit . He'll grab every penny out of the fan he can get and why not if people are willing to pay. Not only willing to pay but happy to pay. Woody knows exactly where to set the bar.
the ny jets is another story.
in this instance the jets screwed others for your personal gain.
relatives and friends of mine were forced out of the stadium by psls. they never sold a ticket or missed a game.
Maybe it's my "rookie" status but I don't see why there would be a mass exodus because of a crappy season. I bought my PSL's from the Jets this year. Had every ticket and PSL been the same price, sure, I would have chosen the 50 yd line and club seats with food...but all the seats are not the same price. I initially thought I wanted the upper deck but after touring the stadium, for me, the value of the seat compared the view was not worth it (the best value/seat is my couch!) so I went for a PSL. I had plenty of choices in various areas (one choice was 8 rows behind SAR). I weighed my choices based on cost vs quality of the seats (using my own criteria)....not as an investment. I am not interested in selling games unless I can't go, and even if I wanted to make money, I don't think sports tickets are the best choice of investments. The tickets and PSL are an expense/a luxury item for me. My investments are meant to appreciate in value, not depreciate over the long haul. I bought my PSL to enjoy going to the game for what, to me, was an acceptable cost/loss. I had no illusions of every season being a winning season.
Great post bob
You represent the vast majority of psl holders . ..happy to be able to enjoy seeing live NFL games in good seats and a nice environment
Dont be disturbed by the negative whiners though.
There is only one of them here who has a legitimate beef. That would be nike who by his own admission bought the wrong seats and hopefully now will be back next season in seats he will enjoy.
The others are ALL of two groups. UDers who cheaped out to avoid PSLs as low as 2500 bucks and bailed after one season and never evers who because of zipcode issues or others refused to buy any seat un the stadium and sit on their couch instead
Don't even waste your time reading their sour grapes posts and just continue ro enjoy those seats you own

The posters and posts with a hard on for constantly knocking the UD or people who choose to sit there are absurd.
For a number of reasons, I'm sitting up there just as I did in GS and it's actually a better ingame experience- we moved over to the sunnier side and the vast majority of the Giants fans / scalpers who sold games off are gone and Jets fans dominate since the shuffling
Some things are better, some are worse, overall: better. If/when we choose to sit lower down and pay PSLs it'll be our decision not yours
