Anyone who bought a PSL in first go around is stuck and stuck good. 20 or 10% down and several payments in. In fact Jets did not manage to completely fall apart till after this years psl payment.
Considering the junk they were selling it was a miracle they sold as many as they did with same ticket price as Giants
I think everything that has happened since the WSS effort says otherwise--- From that failed Manhattan stadium saga and the time and money pissed away -- the horrible design of NMS as a product of compromise - from the club "auction" that had to be suspended due to lack of interest, to the slashed PSL prices to the unsold seats in an upper deck today.
The Giants view Woody Johnson as a sucker - a willful idiot that helped them reach their objective - a new Giants Stadium and training facility at half the cost. And they are justified in doing so.
I'm trying to understand how you can substantiate your opinion that the Jets have been smarter. Please explain.
