You're a smart guy. Three datapoints for you. 2009 Giants Stadium, 2011 MetLife Stadium, 2012 YTD MetLife Stadium.
What do you see?
I see attendance at an all-time high.
I see a fill rate of 96%, same as in the old stadium despite pricey Club seats and 80,000 fans relocated.
I see attendance only 500 fans per game less than the Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
I see higher attendance than the New England Patriots and 29 other teams.
For years, we were told that as much as half the stadium was filled with Giants fans and ticket scalpers. No longer true in the PSL era. Therefore, there are more Jets fans than ever before enjoying their own stadium and filling it to the same percentage that they always have.
While it would be nice to have that last 4% attended, we're at the same historic level amazingly with Cub seats that are unsold and an upper deck that has been hurt by disloyal, quitting fans.
I don't see a problem here. Please remind me what it is again.
