    Seriously? This team has accomplished nothing in four decades and is staring at a full rebuild. Those must be some real good pain killers you are on.

    Your 10 year argument is simply incorrect. Forget the past 3 days as a fan. Woody has had a BRAND NEW stadium with a team coming off an AFC championship game appearance and has still NEVER once sold every seat. This is not Green Bay or Pittsburgh....NY has more fickle fans all of whom have a million differnt things available to them on a sunday.

    There is simply not a single shred of evidence to support that PSL prices will increase here.
    In my particular case, my seats are investment gold; not all seats are. I played the system to my advantage, got a location that is a great value on a given Sunday or if ever I sell the rights.

    Regarding unsold seats, they simply aren't good locations or good values or they would have sold. 10,000 fans per game are buying seats a-la carte on StubHub. The stadium is full on Sunday's, few thousand upper deck seats empty, not much else.

    All other NFL teams with PSL's have seen their fans pleased with the increase in value over time. New York is no different. The product needs to improve. We all know this.

    Woody Johnson failed to put PSL's on the 27,500 upper deck seats. That's the problem. Those fans didn't commit to the team, they didn't feel pressure to get out of the UD into PSL seats, and they only attend games they want to via the aftermarket. That works for me as my seats are the ones they want.

    There is no problem here. Fans who quit still buy tickets and go when they want. Fans who waited decades for a good view got what they wished for. TV fans are not experiencing blackouts. PSL owners spent money they had and are getting what they expected. All is good.

    The only people who bring up the 'investment' angle are fans who bailed on the team over a few bucks and bruised feelings. To the rest of us it was a price increase, nothing more.

    The investment fans sold their seats last week, hence the 20k 49ers fans in the stadium... The real fans went and watched Kotite era football. Now some want to get out after one game... Got to wonder what Monday night will look like????

    Interesting stat I heard on the radio the other day... NYC gets 30% of all foreign travellers that come to the US. Provides a good market place for those who sell....

    I and a lot of people paid if off at that moment. A PSL is like a timeshare in Disney, motor home, boat or jet skis in terms of investments. You are buying it cause you want it and it does have value and you can sell it, but at a big loss.

    BTW PSLs will have value in 30 years. If they use seat location and seniority in assigning seats in new stadium my grand kids can have front row seats for next 35 years or I can buy them for someone else and charge a fee. Anyone who had seats pre-psls in old stadium, bought a PSL in a great location and held seats whole life of stadium. will do great. He also will have to be immortal but that is another issue
    Good post... totally agree, todays price of going to a game and making a day out of it.

    I said "if" the Jets become an elite team the PSL values will go up.

    Everyone wants to talk about the downside; there's an upside too.

    How much did you make last week? Prob paid off close to a full installment on the PSL if you went that route.

NO ONE bought a PSL as an investment in the traditional sense. If you wanted good seats on a seasonal basis then you factored them in as part of the tickets costs. Now if you felt they were a rip off or didnt want to pay for them fine, you are still left with options to attend EVERY Jet game that you want to.

    Like I stated earlier this season, I sold my PSLs because I was only going to a couple games a year anymore. I used that money to join a new country club, which had a bond that I had to put up to join, very similar to a PSL. If I wanted to join that club, I would have to pay the money. It was part of the cost involved with that particular endeavor.
    Which club??? If Mendham CC, we play them in Paddle.

    Not sure who bought them, might have been Jets fans, I'll find out on Monday night.

    All I know is that I wrote a check to the Jets for the 2012 season for $5,000 and I got $1,000 for just that one game. If I do the same for the Patriots contest, I'll be able to attend 8 home games at a 50% discount.

    It's not my intent to skip games to subsidize the rest, but if we're going to be mediocre for a few seasons its nice to have that financial option. Next season we've got Pittsburgh, New Orleans, and (likely) Oakland which is nice to know.

    Roxiticus. They have a nice paddle facility. I have only played a couple times, but have over 110 rounds of golf in this year.

    Did you not think through the fact that in the span of 30 years the average NFL team will suck for 10 of them?

    Before putting down my PSL paperwork I took a breath and asked myself "In a 3-13 season, what's the most amount of money you're willing to blow until the Jets get good again?". And that number was not $295 per seat.

    Why did you buy such expensive seats?

    its going to be really hard pressed to send the jets renewal money for next season if this season winds up in the tank. i didnt expect the super bowl but i also didnt expect a beat down each and every game.

    id rather just walk away and file it as a loss.

    i made this money on a big job that included many bonuses. i had certain locations where i wanted to sit. i was ripe for the picking when i did the tour and all it wasnt my money it was someone elses i keep telling myself. but now that ive been paying the tix renewal reality has set in. it just isnt worth the money.

    The mistake was made when you bought season tickets based on their CURRENT performance. Like SAR said, if you are not willing to make it through some bad seasons, then you would be better off being an "unofficial" season ticket older and just buy tickets on a weekly basis off of Stub Hub.

    Since the new stadium opened I've found several categories of fans:

    1. PSL/Club seat holders that are legit fans: They wanted a good view, knew that there could be some bad seasons and games that may not be able to be sold, and bought them for a good view.

    2. PSL holders who bought PSLs as an investment figuring maybe they would attend 1-2 games a year and sell the rest and make a huge profit: They will be screwed this year.

    3. Upper deck seat holders who are legit fans: They didn't want to pay a PSL for many different reasons but renew their tickets every year and didn't see things as an investment but want their same seats every week.

    4. Upper deck seat holders who piss and moan: Read the description

    5. People who sit on the couch and are content with it and don't really post in these threads

    6. People who sit on their couch and feel the urge to insult anyone with tickets to the games.

    7. People who still buy tickets but buy on stubhub and are content

    8. People who buy tickets on stubhub and feel the urge to discourage people from having season tickets because they could get a Houston Texans MNF ticket for below face and will sit home because 49ers tickets are way above face.

    SAR you might have got green in your seats, but lots of red on your side.

    jets would rather have you switch seats than downgrade. Why dont you see if they have any 15K PSLs open on the Jets side lower level with the 145 face.

    Those seats you wont lose money selling give they are 25 yard line lower level with a 145 face.
