That's a crock.
MLB depends on walk-up ticket sales for a significant piece of its revenue stream. The NFL does not.
So when Yankee season ticket holders dump tickets for a few of the 81 games they can't attend, it hurts the Yankees walk-up window ticket sales. You can get a Club seat in advance for the cost of a bleacher seat you have to wait in line for.
When Jets fans re-sell tickets it doesn't affect the Jets because there are no walk up tickets in significant numbers. It's not a revenue stream the Jets care about over 10 measley games, most of which are sold out except for Club seats.
StubHub is a win for the Jets because it fills the stadium with fans who pay for parking, buy concessions, eat food, and hope to be season ticket holders in the future. It also helps PSL owners feel comfortable because they have an outlet to sell single games for family conflicts, vacations, etc.
