The anti-PSL crowd however is hell bent on taking out their disastifaction with their own budget on anyone they can get within firing distance. It's Woody's fault, it's the Giants's fault, it's the "corporate" people's fault, it's the other stupid Jets fans fault. They need to grow up and deal with their situation like an adult.
These PSL threads always boil down to some 29 year old making $49,000 taking shots at some 45 year old making $249,000 as if we are his problem.
And when the Jets do something right- like having 27,000 seats without PSL's- it gets no play. When the Jets allow fans to pick their own locations- it gets no play. When the Jets reduce ticket prices and create thousands of $50 seats- it gets no play. But when there is a theory that the Jets are going to gently raise ticket prices, oh, all hell is going to break loose. And why? Because fans who are already writing $5000 checks to the Jets every April now have to write a check for $5200? Who cares? If $200 meant that much to us, trust me, we wouldn't be spending $60,000 per decade to watch games that are on free TV.
99% of the posts come from people who aren't even season ticket holders. It's laughable. Some of us paid attention in high school, got good grades in college, made something out of ourselves. Yankees, Rangers, Knicks, and Jets season ticket subscriptions are a rich man's game, no one said it was going to be fair, no one is forcing 5 star hotels to charge Motel 6 prices, no one is forcing United to pull first class seats off the plane.
