    PSL Owners - Changing Sections

    Has anyone been able to work with the Jets move seats within their section b/c of annoying fans?

    One of the people that often "sits" in front of us insists on standing up for every single defensive play. He screams the entire time.

    While I don't mind some standing, it seems pointless to stand up when the ball is on the other end of the stadium and the Jets are up by 4 touchdowns. He seems to think it makes him "superfan." If he wants to be a superfan, he might try showing up on time and sober.

    [On the bright side, he isn't the tool who went to the game with a jersey with the name "Flash" on the back, a Jets construction helmet, soft shoulder pads and football pants complete with pads installed.]

    Starting next year, we might start bringing our children and it could be a problem.

    Thanks.

    Go Jets!!!

    You sir, are one of the reasons why PSL seat holders have a rep of not being real fans. So you are mad a fan is cheering the team on and making noise on defense?

    ugh.

    That being said, one of the main reasons I purchased the seats I did is because I am in the last row of my section and can stand up for the game without making anyone mad.

    If you are looking to move, you will have to move laterally or up in PSL costs. Jets will not let you move down. You will have to buy same number of seats as well.

    At least this is my experience.

    1) Good fans know when to make noise and when to sit down. When there are big plays or when the action is on our end of the stadium (we are in the endzone), I stand up and cheer like everyone else.

    2) He shows up late to every game b/c he has to spend time getting loaded in the parking lot. Good fans show up on time for the game.

    3) Some "fans" think that the key to being good fan is to try to get as much attention as possible. In particular, they are constantly looking backwards at other fans trying to "get them into the game." IMHO - that is not being a fan. Good fans watch the game and know what is going on.

    4) I am very much into the actual game. In addition to listening to the radio call, I am actually trying to see every play. I could care less what Fireman Ed and the other attention seeking "fans" are doing.

    5) I applaud you for your seat choice. If you enjoy standing up, that is fine with me. Thinking of others is to be commended.

    millsfan, I myself did the same thing. Bought row 12 in Mezz A so I can stand the entire game.

    same here. specifically why im last row and love it, i refuse to move up when offered.

    there should be different sections of the stadium... quiet sit sections, and the loud cheering standing sections. Theres a similar atmosphere at college games, most of the times the student sections are rowdy as hell making noise on defense all game, and the alumnis are less so.

    If fans being loud on defense gives the jets a 1% better chance of winning, i say do it all game everygame!

    I was at the game yesterday in a very low row in a corner Mezz A section (basically opposite the world famous SAR seats). Second time I sat in these seats. Just like last time, a belligerent, loud, drunk and sloppy Jets fan two seats to my right had the whole section ready to kill him. Yelling for nothing mostly. But often yelling when the Jets were on offense ( a few times actually chanting defense when the Jets had the ball...). A 45-50 year old guy, generally, just a total embarrassment. Finally ran out of gas in 3rd quarter (Just like last year).

    All I could think to myself was unlucky all of these long time STH were because they had to deal with this hot mess every home game.

    Yep, 240 row 14.

    I also have 140 row 9 seats, but rarely sit there. They always sell for ridiculous prices. But when I do sit there, I do try to control the standing up, but when on defense I tend to. I am not one of those guys who tries to rouse the fan base. I just do my thing, without being too much of a PITA to others.

    The only time I ever say anythign to others is when someone doesn't take off their hat or is talking during the national anthem. THAT you will hear from me.

    Thank you. There is a time to be loud and a time to stand up. The guy in front of us doesn't understand that. Essentially, he forces everyone behind him to stand up at inappropriate times.

    I was just thinking of this. There is a family only section 224b. No idea of how well it runs or if there are openings.

    "Real" fans or not, the standing in the lower level is absolutely rediculous. While on offense and when we're on the other side of the stadium. Really necessary? You're blocking my view of the jumbotrons! Even on defense...why can't you be loud without standing up on first and second down when the team is all the way down field? I'm in the middle of the section...the guys up front all stand, so I stand. The guys behind us yell, so I yell back. It's a stupid way to spend the game. Really unenjoyable. So... I'm considering a move from Lower Level endzone to the Mezz A, paying up in PSL. From the sound of it, maybe I should go up to Mezz B, just to be safe. I may not mind the extra height for a better gameday experience. Oh, BTW, I'm a "real" fan too...whatever that means.

    I actually like the view from my 240 seats better than my 140 seats. Very good elevation without being far away. You might like Mezz better.

    I feel so bad for you. The "standers" are the worst.

    What I like to do is text security a few times. By the third time he sits down or they throw him out. Completely rude to stand the whole game. Like it makes a difference in the final score.

    I stand up mostly when we are on defense. Usually on third downs and big moments. On offense I only cheer after a play. Never had anyone ask me to sit down in the new stadium. In the old stadium I had people ask us to be quiet and sit down many times.

    One of the good things about PSLs is that they helped get rid of some of those dinosaurs.

    I think you are too young to be a dinosaur.

    Next year bring your kids, stand up with them on your shoulders and let them scream till they lose their voices. Embrace it.

    Identical to my section.

    Based on most people's responses I'm pretty sure it would be very difficult to just move your seats. You have a signed contract so I doubt they would change it. Only 3 ways I could see it happen:

    1. By some lucky chance the guy you don't care for has 2 friends who want to sit directly behind him and call the Jets wanting those seats. Chances are they call you up asking you if you want new seats in a better spot in that section.

    2. You move to a higher PSL price point such as moving from a $2.5k PSL to a $4k PSL.

    3. You add extra seats. If you have 2 now and you want to bring the kids and go up to 4 I'm sure they would gladly move you.

    If you find an equal or higher number of seats in an equal of higher priced PSL section, they will change you without hesitation. I have called each of the last two seasons to see about upgrades and they always have at least a few options.

    In my last season in the old dump we moved to a new section in the UD and had the misfortune of sitting about 5 rows behind a moron who thought he was Firefraud Ed Junior. He'd stand up on just about every play and try and do the stupid Ed chant and give those who didn't participate the Evil Ed staredown. Fortunately he got so drunk a couple of times that he nearly fell over the railing of the UD and was escorted out by security for being a loud drunken nuisance.

    Unfortunately these sort of jackasses still apparently exist in the new stadium to ruin the enjoyment of fans who actually want to watch a football game. Fortunately for my small group of three, down in the LL sidelines, we don't have one near us and stand up and yell when the Jets are on defense on important downs when fans SHOULD do so

    Very easy to move seats if you are moving to a higher priced section. Not so hard to move seats if you are moving to a less desirable seat location in your current section.

    To be honest Mezz B Family section has lowest secondary market value of any section. You can easily buy seats there for like $1,200 each.

    Other choice is to exam that website seatandrow.com carefully to figure out rows with no seats in front. Also for Jets did sell row one prime UD seats this year. Sure there will be more next year. Best is to buy some row one UD prime seats take kids there and sell your psl seats.

    BTW I have three young kids. I was at Sundays game with my ten year old daughter. I specifically requested only seats where my children could see the game. They were nice enough to offer up, aisle seats, or seats at front of section. Also lower rows have a lot of corporate types, sponsors, old timers, etc. less serious fans. So less people stand. SAR once spoke of multiplier effect. For instance, row one has little reason to stand, so odds are good in row two you wont have to stand so much, row three since row two does not have to stand much you wont either, but each row you go back odds are getting higher one jerk will stand and chain reaction begins. At Sundays game around row 13 it appeared in my section people were standing so from row 13 to 33 everyone was standing all game, meanwhile row 1-12 lots of sitting. LLEZ was cheap as rows are very wide, incline is slight, more drunks go for the cheaper seats and when plays are downfield people stand to see and when plays are on your side people stand due to excitment, other words lots of standing. Anyhow my daughter had a great time sunday and she never had to stand. Only downside is we had a bunch of chatty kathys next to us in corporate seats talking about non-football stuff a lot. But they were pretty, well behaved and sat most of game. I take that over a loud mouth drunk cursing and standing all game, but there is a trade off.

    Since you have kids, maybe you can give us some advice about what to do. Would you buy “permanent” seats for them or would you rent?

    1) Given their ages, we don’t expect to take the girls to regular season night games (Pre Season maybe) anytime soon. With a long commute, it would be too much for them to stay up the entire game.
    2) Really cold games – don’t see the wives letting me take the girls out in bad weather.
    3) I figure the girls will be in for the preseason games and 2-3 regular season games starting next year.

    Even if we solve our “stand up” guy problem by moving somewhere else in the LLEZ, we are leaning towards “renting” seats as needed for the family:
    1) No PSL to deal with;
    2) No preseason seats to get killed on.
    3) Our existing LLEZ seats are pretty easy to sell on SH. Even with fees, we have only sold for less than $125 once (last minute thing). With planning, I could almost always sell them to friends for FV and no fees.
    4) Buy Mezz A or Mezz B on SH for the exact number of seats we need. For the 49ers game, we would need to pay about: $160-180 for 4 seats together.
