Whatever the preseason costs each year will be recouped by selling the preseason games at 50% to 60% off plus the growth in PSL value over time.
In down seasons, PSL owners feel some hurt, but it's not $4,000 of hurt. More like $1,500. No biggie. If my PSL's go up 2x or 3x, it's all win.
There's no growth in PSL value over time. When the Jets move to a new stadium the value of the PSL is zero. Demand between now and then may make the value go up, but the laws of supply and demand dictate that it is priced as an option with no value at expiration. If you sell before a new stadium is built or moved to, then you can recoupe, offset or make a profit depending on demand.
It should be looked at an upfront cost of the seat amortized over time.
