Nice fans they are.
It's the loyal, diehard PSL owner that's the lifesblood of the franchise. I'm very proud of what we've helped Woody Johnson achieve.
The reason why the Jets value has dramatically increased to the current level is the value of the new stadium as compared with the old dump in which the Giants got pretty much all the concessions, all the parking and all of everything during Jets home games --- the worst stadium deal any team in the NFL had.
The new stadium where they finally get their rightful share of revenues (ALL) for their home games is a HUGE factor. The new stadium was privately financed and there was considerable debt originally. However with the assistance of the best of all Jet fans through their PSL purchases, the sellout of all non luxury seats every year and the increased revenues that will be arriving from the new network TV deals, this debt is now at a much more reasonable level and THUS the value of the franchise has jumped up to one of the top sports franchises in the world.
A great job by the great base of Jet fans in supporting their team where it matters
