Doesn't work: PA system is way too loud, never stops making noise. Impossible to have a conversation with a seat neighbor for all the shouting, the bombardment of music, commercials, tee-boys, PC Richard's whistles, military honorees, evacuation strategies, helmet races, its a never-ending cacophony of an ear-splitting racket.
Could be better: Pregame entertainment for families. Because the parking forces you to arrive at the game 2 hours early, you wind up inside the stadium ring with 90 minutes to kill. The kids are bored of the inflatable obstacle course, dad doesn't want to walk-up to the ESPN booth, Jets need to do something more fun since they're forcing us to kill so much time.
Could be better: Food choices. There are tons of places to buy food, never any lines, but all the stands pretty much sell the same thing. Jets should step it up, offer us more options.
Good stuff here
I tailgate so pre-game is not as big a deal - although I wish it was patrolled a little better by the Jets (ie - obnoxious tailgators)
Totally agree on in game PA - maybe Im getting old but who wants to hear that stuff booming all the time. Fantasy football and in game is huge - we are obviously fans of the NFL...why not have time outs with constant highlights and Red Zone updates...thats what I do at home. Its a no brainer and just dont understand how they miss the boat on this.
Food - same thing - better than the old stadium but should be MUCH better.
