    Dear Woody Johnson,

    Your team is in flames, and has become a laughingstock.

    You're obviously a successful businessman; treat the Jets organization as a business and fix things NOW!

    Inheriting money is easy... Running a successful investment company for three decades is not...

    Back pay awarded to Uncle Sam aside, he's got a pretty good track record on investments... Including outbidding Dolan and accruing $400 million over market on a sports franchise in a little over a decade...

    A successful businessman would have gotten the WSS done. Instead he let someone else do his bidding for him and failed - which is probably how his investment firm is run.

    The great-grandson of Robert Wood Johnson I, who co-founded the pharmaceuticals behemoth Johnson & Johnson, Woody was still in high school when his grandfather fired his father. But young Woody decided against going into the family business; instead, he took his share of the family fortune and settled in Florida, investing in cable businesses and real estate deals in the 1970s. His years down south weren't without controversy: A series of messy lawsuits unfolded and he endured an acrimonious split with his business partner. Johnson moved to New York in 1984, shortly after marrying his first wife, and set up a firm to manage his fortune as well as handle investments for other members of the Johnson family. He became increasingly active in philanthropy in the '90s, and moved into the sports business in 2000 when he purchased the Jets for $635 million from the estate of long-time owner Leon Hess.

    Johnson, purchased the NY Jets for $635 million, the third-highest price for a professional sports team and the most for one in New York. Johnson, who also owns courtside seats to the New York Knicks, outbid the $612 million offered by Charles F. Dolan, the chairman of Cablevision, which owns Madison Square Garden, the Knicks and the Rangers. The price seemed high for a team with a recent history of game losses, and which finished with a 1-15 record in 1996. The team sold for more than $100 million above what some sports finance analysts had expected. Based on the Jets' recent financial performance and the team's low-revenue lease at Giants Stadium, the analysts said the team was really worth about $250 million.[5]

    The appraisal is laughable...

    What is the team worth now again? Less than $635 million?

    lolz...

    So many lolz from a guy who can't forgive the Jets or their owner for staying in Jersey...

    You're so predictable it is sad...

    Predictable but correct. Woody did nothing to get the NMS. It was all Taglaibue's doing. Woody just signs the checks.

    Yes I confess. Guilty as charged. Predictable for my distaste of Woody Johnson as the owner of the Jets. And oh by the way it has been reported that Johnson has lost money nearly every year he has owned the Jets.

    [URL="http://cityfile.com/profiles/woody-johnson"]http://cityfile.com/profiles/woody-johnson[/URL]

    There is no question the Jets are now worth more then Woody paid for the team but whether or not buying the Jets turns out to be a good business venture is still an open book.

    Even though your "source" (lol @ your source) is unclear about whether he's losing money that he should be accruing or just plain losing money (lol) [quote]The Jets earn so little revenue from Giants Stadium, in fact, that Johnson has reportedly lost millions every year he's owned the team.[/quote] the franchise has skyrocketed by hundreds of millions of dollars over what he paid... Even if he's shelled out $20 million a year out of his own pocket he's still $200 million + in the green if he sold the team tomorrow...

    Only an eejit, Woody Johnson hating, Queens/LI Jet fan would say that the jury is still out on whether this was a good business decision...

    Not to mention the reasoning behind the article for the porousness of his ownership skills was a stadium deal that no longer exists...

    But keep up the good fight bro. It matters. It really, really matters...

    Hey did you forget that we're on a football internet message board? Nothing we do here matters.

    We're discussing (which is what one does on a message board) Woody Johnson's business acumen. Since neither you or I see his books this is all speculation. One can assume though the fact that the Jets are not sold out, and they had to reduce prices on some seats and PSL's to sell what they have that Woody is making a lot less money they he thought he was going to on the new stadium and that the Jets are continuing to lose Woody money.

    I'm not saying he hasn't had appreciation and that he wouldn't get that back if he sold. Hear that Woody? Sell. Please sell!!!!
