The vast majority of actual Jets season ticket holders did not go to games for "free". The assertion that this is what a lot of people did is completely fictional. These online ticket exchanges that you are cashing in with are a relatively new phenomenon and anyone who was a Jets season ticket holder for the duration of the lease a Giants stadium can tell you that for many games you couldn't give your tickets away. Scalping was illegal not too long ago. The Jets had the right to revoke your tickets if you did back then what they encourage today.
BTW - Still waiting for the explanation as to why the Jets were smarter than the Giants.
