He said he did not get paid to promote new stadium and never gets paid for Jets appearances. But if it is a commercial or non jet event and you ask him he will charge you. He said around 100K is most he makes.
He said unless you are saying he uses that "pizza hut" money to buy his tickets and PSLs he pays his own way at the stadium. Does not want to be a corporate mascot or shill for Jets. But he does get paid for non Jets things, and he should.
There is absolutely no way Ed made 100k for an appearance. Not a chance. Someone like Ed can expect nothing more than a 1 to 5k for a public appearance. Maybe that one year when he was in two national commercials and Modell's had him out there he approached 100k collectively, but that year was an anomaly.
