There were plenty of open seats in 116, even after the ushers let in all their seat for cash customers. I don't begrudge them by the way, they probably get paid sh!t and the guy is our section is awesome.
Why do you need game day to go to a pub? Is that the only day your wife lets you off the leash?
I tailgated my ass off for 27 years at Giants Stadium. I love tailgating but it doesn`t have to be done EVERY game. Thats just my opinion btw.
The only reason tailgating is such a big part of Jets/Giants games is because there ain`t nothing else to do there. If the WSS came to fruition, Jets gamedays would`ve been one of the best football experiences in the league. Win or Lose. New York City is a great place to pre-game. Thousands of choices. It could`ve been nice on crappy weather days to just meet up with tailgating buds at a pub, which there would`ve been thousands to choose from, and have someone else cook and serve for a change, without having to set up tents/tarps and trying to stay dry. Probably less expensive too once you add up the costs of tailgating supplies, food, drinks, etc. I would`ve definitely still been a STH, with proper PSLs that would give a PSL owner the proper rights to his seat(s).
I`ve spent many years in pubs playing for a travelling dart team. Not a big fan of hanging in pubs these days but the occasional pub crawl is fine. My wife would have been included in Jets gamedays, so no leash here.
