The Band how much were Jets tickets back in those days? A far cry from what they are charging today, minus the PSL costs. You can`t even be serious with that comment.
Jets tickets averaged $75 in 2000 and hit $110 by 2009. Hardly much different than today's prices accounting for inflation and live sports increases in the NY metro area. The last 10 seasons of Giants Stadium, sold out, no blackouts, no nothing.
thousands have jumped ship, including all of my buds. We aren`t the only ones who jumped off the losing bandwagon. Granted, most if not all have been from the upper deck.
Yeah, they took away that cushy scam they had going, great seats, selling half the tickets for 2x face value, going to the other half for free. They didn't go for the PSL, ran away to the upper deck because it was cheap, stuck around through the promising AFC Championship Game seasons, bailed like disloyal bastards as soon as we went 8-8, patted themselves on the back here at 6-10.
Great fans they are. We're quite lucky they were exterminated after years of abuse.
The only reason why that is, is because PSL owners still haven`t paid in full yet. I`m certain once they are paid in full, they will sell if they can, even at a loss, just to get out.
Wrong. Your mistake is that you think that there are tons of people holding PSL's. When you take out upper deck seats and Club seats, you're left with only 14,000 PSL owners at an average of 3 seats per subscription. There are a lot more than 14,000 loyal Jets fans who a) have money, b) are loyal to the team through thick and thin, and c) weren't dumb enough to make a 30 year commitment as an impulse-buy.
The subset of actual PSL owning families is very small. We're not talking about 82,500 people. We're only talking about 14,000 people. In a city of 8 million people, that's nothing.
Remember, Jets fans are a cheap bunch. One of the main reasons people became Jets fans was because they were cheap tickets for a very long time. They were the last team to impose pre-season games on their fans. They were the NFL`s cheapest tickets for a time there too.
...and this is why we say good riddance to the old time, farting, burping, brown-bagging, blue-collar Jets fan. You've been replaced. It only took 14,000 white-collar fans to do it, not hard. And let me tell you something- a completely empty upper deck for 2013 wouldn't be an embarrassment; it would be a Godsend. I pray for it every day.
You think the ticket prices are crazy expensive. They're not.
You think that there are 80,000 PSL owners out there. There aren't.
You think that there is some major PSL exodus occurring. There isn't.
