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.
The PA is a nuisance in the corners, but it's bad acoustic planning, I think, more than anything else. I sat one game last year in the LL mid field, much better than 232a, where it drives me crazy.
As far as food and parking issues, they have all that, they're just not giving it to you, at your station in stadium life. Jump one section to your left, and you drive straight into the lot, past everyone else, 20 mins before kickoff. Use the extra 5 minutes to decide between the carving station, pulled pork, pizza oven, food network station, etc., etc. You complaining about food and parking is the equivalent of the non-PSL upper deckers complaining about bathrooms, entry/exit, and, well, parking.
