    Jets are locked into New Jersey for 28 more years. No ifs, ands, or buts. There is zero chance that they move.

    There are 12,500 Club seats in the stadium.

    There are 27,000 Upper Deck seats in the stadium.

    12,000 unsold equals 30% of those two sections, 45% Club's and 20% UD, sounds about right.

    While you are entitled to this opinion, anyone who thinks that "everyone" agrees is a fool.

    I don't know a single Yankees/Jets fan that would prefer to be at MetLife on Monday instead of Yankee Stadium.

    if woody has a chance to turn a profit with the investor in la this team is gone. how fitting would that be to all us jets fans. stanger things have happened.
    if they move all psls are null and void or maybe they offer us seats in the new stadium.

    Any buyer would have to pay off the state of New Jersey to get out of the remaining 28 years on the lease. Never gonna happen.

    i think your wrong. im sure in the contract theres a clause about bankruptcy or relocating. this is new jersey and besides the giants would still remain in the stadium.

    That 12,000 must count the club seats which I don't believe count against the blackout as they are premium seats.

    With Stub hub you don't know how many are team owned tickets or STH holder tickets.

    SAR posted that there are only 3000-4000 unsold seats and that most of them are in the upper deck. At $50 per ticket the jets will only need to buy about
    $ 650,000 (at 34%) worth of tickets to broadcast the games.

    Bowls suck to watch a game, it looks like only about 50% of the tickets are between the goal lines.

    I hate Monday night football anyway, Even watching at home it is tough getting ready for the commute the next morning. Going to the game your lucky to get in the office before 10

    @RichCimini: #Jets deny NFL Network report that team had 12k unsold tix for MNF as of Friday. Per spokesman, every home gm will be televised locally.

    There are more Jets fans paying more money than ever before to watch the team in their new stadium.

    By building a new stadium and by instituting PSL's, the Jets went from the fourth least profitable franchise in the NFL to the fourth most profitable one.

    Translation: an 80% sold out MetLife Stadium makes more money than a 100% sold out Giants Stadium. It's the benefit of owning 50% of the stadium as opposed to renting it.

    Thats not right. I don`t think there are more Jets fans. I think they have less than they ever did. If there is 20-25%(or more as the 49`er game showed us) opposing fans in the stadium every game, and the stadium has lots of empty seats everywhere(20%), there can`t be more than 50-60% Jets fans.

    Woody can always sell his half to the Giants and just pack up and move. All it`s gonna take is a stretch of terrible football, which I believe has begun, and the fans will stop going. PSL or not, people will opt to not bother going. There will be those "unable to give tiks away" seasons ahead. The seats will still be counted as sold but the no-shows will make Woody think about all the concession $ he is missing out on. Just because the Jets made their fans pay for that stadium doesn`t mean he can`t get out of it. He`s a lot smarter on the business end than he is the football end. He`s definitely got himself an out of some sorts.

    The new stadium is significantly larger than the old one. For years we were told that 1/3 of the fans in Giants Stadium were either Giants fans or tickets scalpers. Because of PSL's, there are no longer any Giants fans or scalpers in the Jets family.

    Translation: There are more true Jets fans in the stadium than ever before. Empty seats, sure, but more Jets fans than ever before in the facility itself.

    Like any team in the NFL, empty seats equals embarrassment for the franchise owner. As a result, it motivates him to put a better product on the field. The amount of Jets seats sold and the current average attendance is greater than the New England Patriots who have been the class of the AFC for the past decade. The Jets and Giants decided to buck current NFL trend and build a fully closed stadium. Most stadiums built today don't have any upper deck end zones, and that's what's putting pressure on the sold-out status.

    I, for one, am hoping the Jets get blacked out in the coming years. I'm tired of footing the bill for the freeloaders to sit at home and watch on television.

    Does not surprise me. And to be honest, this is the only thing that would force Woody to make a change. We have a non-competitive offense that sucks the joy out of watching an NFL game.
    THIS!

    The ONLY way Woody changes regimes is if his pockets start to hurt. You don't like the job that Rex, Tanny have been doing? Stop buying Jets Tickets & Apparel.

    12,000 tickets? I can only imagine what Woody is thinking to drum up sales...



    "How about dogs chasing frisbees at half-time? Nah...you know how much those dogs would cost me!!!

    How about free Woody Johson bobble heads? Nah...people wouldn't take them even if they were free...or they'd be melting them in the parking lots!

    I know, we can start that guy we traded for over the summer who people love even though his passes look like a shot put! Yeah...that's it! Tebow Time!"

    You always make such stable arguments, then punctuate them with an elitist barb.

    Sometimes it gets tiring defending season-ticket holders from those who simply sit on the couch. Sad for the franchise, but it would give those loafers a taste of their own medicine.

    Make them have no game to watch on Sunday, get themselves to the stadium.

    I drive my BMW to the stadium, they can drive their Kia's.

    No, I don't get it. It's cool that you won't get blacked out.

    I have a $1.5M house and it's got all the NFL channels, so if I skip a game here or there I get to see them all too.
