Texans are a great team. Real Class Act. Unlike Jets team. My buddy and two guys to left of me were shouting out to the Players a lot. Of course Jets dont respond ever. Then out of blue right as second half was started we see Arian Foster running towards us, he takes his helmet off as he runs to us, reaches up shakes out hands. Mind you buddy and I are in Jets Jerseys and Jets Hats as well as two other guys. Arian Foster is a cool dude. Around two years ago when Texans played field goal kicker signed balls out of bag and gave them to the kids in our section while game was on.
Only thing I hate about Texans is it makes it hard to boo them. We had a few very hot texan female fans in our section. Unlike the ravens and pats whose female fans are not exactly model material
Looks like teams are free to select whatever they want to use but the league encourages them to use tickets sold instead of turnstile clicks (scanned entries). That could account for Dallas, Denver etc. being over 100%.National League teams announced an actual turnstile count through 1992, MLB spokesman Rich Levin said. But the National League and American League have since consolidated business operations, and Major League Baseball defines attendance as "tickets sold," not "tickets used."
"It's because of revenue sharing," Levin said. "That's what we use in our official count." (Teams contribute 34% of the revenue they generate, including most ticket and concession revenue, into a pool to be redistributed among teams that generate the fewest dollars.)
The Times no longer routinely includes attendance in sports stories, because of the discrepancies between actual and announced attendance.
"In effect, we're intentionally presenting inaccurate information while attributing it to the home team," Sports Editor Bill Dwyre wrote in a memo announcing the change.
The NBA and NHL announce the number of tickets distributed, adding complimentary tickets -- for players' families, league officials, sponsors and such -- to the number of tickets sold.
The NFL traditionally has permitted a team to announce whatever attendance figures it chose, including no-shows. However, the league distributed a memo this month encouraging teams to limit their announcement to tickets sold.
"When no-shows become a significant factor," the memo read, "clubs should respond factually to inquiries from the media."
Major League Baseball has issued no such directive to its teams. The Dodgers declined to say how many tickets were used -- or how many unused -- for that late July homestand. They also declined to provide a no-show figure for this season, or for last season.
What is getting tired are your endless personal attacks. If you have an issue with me take it to PM. If not, and you continue to call me out on my value as an 'entertainer' on this message board, I will report you to the moderators who will take the appropriate action.
But who cares, the crowd was good and fired up no matter how hard Sanchez tried to quiet us down with his shaky play. Tailgate was great and it was actually the first time ever I ran out of beer. And not it was not due to people being bombed, just that a lot showed up that I did not expect to be there.... Good night all around, minus the loss...
Turned to my friends I was with, half way thru the 4th quarter, and said this is why we go to the games...
As DCAT confirmed you are wrong. 100% wrong. The whole theme of this thread is based on misinformation - something you are quite good at spreading and no I will not do it in a pm. It should be public so people can read how wrong you are and what the truth is. This is not an opinion where reasonable people can disagree. This is a fact that there is only one right answer to.
You owe this board an apology. Man up and admit you were wrong.
I owe this board nothing. And if I did I wouldn't be telling it to a poster that disappears for 10 months at a time and only appears when the Jets are in trouble so he can push his decade-old agenda of a Queens stadium on a handful of PSL owners who didn't quit on the team over a zip code.
I don't need the mods help. I can enforce the rules all by myself: Getting responses from SAR on Jets Insider is a privilege. You just lost yours.
