Shut up already.

    I've had season tickets since 1985. I'm one of the unwashed masses. I'm guessing I've spent more on mine than you have up to this point. The money is not the point, but you know that already. Name another industry that gives you a price increase and asks you to pay it up front. As a smart person you wouldn't stand for it. neither would anyone else.

    Right there I've got enough money to buy a whole section of PSL seats, yet I only bought 4. I'm so thrify.

    Scott, I don't know how many times I can say that you should spend your money how you like, that's clearly not my intent. PSLs are a rip-off and you know that. It's a rip-off you are happy to pay, and thats fine. You have the disposable income, so why not.

    My tickets on average go for double face. Paying a PSL is a one time upfront fee to enjoy going to games at face value for next 30 years or below face value if one sells a few games.

    Even if my PSL slowly marches to a value of zero in 30 years. So what I can sell 20 years in get 1/3 back and still have enjoyed all the years of games.


    Folks near me feel the same. I actually had better seats in old stadium. My old stadium section in new stadium was LL Prime with a 20K psl.

    My wife even commented why do Jets sell you seats for $105 that you can sell for almost $400 for some games. Makes no sense. Guess what she was right so Jets sold my pair of seats to someone new for 40K a pair. Guess what Jets offered me my old seats in new stadium. Same row and everything, I turned them down. Jets relocated me down field to same row in a cheaper PSL and I was happy.

    Huge amounts of folks in the LL Sidelines or Mezz Sidelines refused to buy a PSL because they got a free ride for so long. Guy to left of me in old stadium had seats since Shea. Typical Jet fan. Went to first few warm weather games and sold the rest for enough of a profit so he went for free every year. Was doing this for decades. Once someone goes for free hard to get them to pay..

    The fact that you can find a dozen people down on their luck who have to dump their season tickets rather than face the April invoice and who are willing to lose their shirts in the process isn't something to be afraid of. It's merely part of life.

    You don't see the cars being repo'd, you don't see the houses going to auction, you don't see the marriages going down the tubes, you don't see the suicides. But the PSL's, ah, there are websites that document those, sites in which fans can buy and sell as they please.

    There is no epidemic of PSL's being dumped; what's going on is called "life".

    SAR I
    This post is such BS but why should anybody on this board be surprised by this coming from him? My post here is not intended for SAR. He's hopeless. I know SAR is not a stupid man but when it comes to these issues he is just consistently wrong.

    First off. Whoever reads SAR's post needs to think of laws of supply and demand and not this sob story of people hurting in the economy. Of course there are people hurting. How does SAR know that every PSL for sale is because of that? He doesn't. He just pulls this sh*t out of his ass like all his other theories. The reality is that the economy is getting better. There are a lot of people in the tristate area that just received huge bonuses and unemployment is going down. The laws of S and D say that if these people wanted PSL's the seats offered in Alcotraz's post would be gobbled up at face or close to it. The fact that they are offered at way below face and still not sold means THAT THERE IS NO DEMAND FOR IT. SAR can spin it all he wants but that doesn't change the basic economic tenet.

    Now about the BS of PSL's being just $13 a game over 30 years. Of course that would be true if there was no time value to money. Is SAR a life ins salesman? Has anybody here heard their pitch? Buy this whole life policy. Pay $5k/yr premiums and after 30 years you paid $150k and your policy is worth $250k. Look you made money and got the ins. for free? How do they do this magic? Speak to any annuity person and find out what your money would be worth after 30 years if you put your PSL money in an annuity - trust me you will find out it will be worth a lot more than $13/game.

    Listen PSL's are not for everybody and I recognize that many are happy with them and I'm glad for them. It's just that people need to read these threads and understand that there is a lot of BS thrown around by the likes of SAR.

    Cue up the posts calling me a zip code fan and just disgruntled by the stadium. So be it. Let anybody though try and refute the facts I just delineated.

    The vast majority of actual Jets season ticket holders did not go to games for "free". The assertion that this is what a lot of people did is completely fictional. These online ticket exchanges that you are cashing in with are a relatively new phenomenon and anyone who was a Jets season ticket holder for the duration of the lease a Giants stadium can tell you that for many games you couldn't give your tickets away. Scalping was illegal not too long ago. The Jets had the right to revoke your tickets if you did back then what they encourage today.

    BTW - Still waiting for the explanation as to why the Jets were smarter than the Giants.

    Why don't you use your knowledge and tell us how money does not have a time value and that the true cost of PSL's is not the cost of the psl divided by the number of games in 30 years?

    Why don't you do us all this favor without any personal attacks?

    So.lets compare.

    Sucksboro


    No PSLs
    Higher UD
    Actual seats---an improvement over the cold steel benches Kraft forced his fans to sit on for decades
    A shopping mall
    No escalators
    Highest average gameday ticket prices in NFL
    Highest average parking prices in most cases to park in rat infested mud filled garbage dumps
    Tailgating in scenes that look like the Hoovervilles of the 30s
    A one lane in and out road normally requiring more than two hours to get to and from the garbage dump parking from any real road
    All this achieved by extorting the Governors of two states and raising the taxes of every Ma$$hole citizen

    Metlife

    PSLs
    A high UD without PSLs not as high as Sucksboro
    Escalators
    Great views from the LL and Mezz level
    Reasonably priced parking on paved surfaces with rat free tailgating
    Relatively easy ingress and egress on real roads
    No additional burden on all NJ taxpayers

    This is not a discussion comparing the fan experience at each stadium. if it was, I assure you, I can rattle off pro's and cons of each.

    and escalators? Really?

    Jets are smarter as somehow for an inferior product they were able to sell PSLs at same price as Giants or in some cases more.

    Section 144 for instance Giants charged a 5k PSL somehow Jets charged a 6K psl and got suckers to buy them. Meanwhile Giant tickets in that section have a lower face value and go for more in secondary.

    Jets basically sold Yugos for the same price as Cadillacs. It takes a smart salesman to pull that off.

    BTW my buddy in old stadium had amazing lower level seats, super amazing. He had a deal at his brokerage firm in the1980s and 1990s he would sell them 1/2 the games for double face so they could take clients. Just cuase their was no stubhub did not mean it did not happen. Just was harder to do.

    folks with UD seats in old stadium ate seats all the time. But folks on the 50 yard line in first few rows never did.

    LOL..you're point is spot on, but I always chuckle when I read Skippy's claim to dirt parking lots at Gillette. The old Foxboro stadium sure, but the lots were paved in the first year or so after the new stadium was built. I don't think he;s actually ever been there.

    Actually is hijacked by the likes of you and SAR who spread BS and when asked to defend the BS can't. Who doesn't want to hear for the 5000 time how you originally had UD seats and why you moved downstairs? Who doesn't want to hear again about SAR and how he got his seats?

    Am still waiting to hear why PSL prices are not going down because of S & D and that there is no time value to the money used to buy PSL's.

    PSLs are like gold!! they are expensive, there are costs to holding it and it pays no dividends or interest.

    How did your guarantees that nobody would buy PSLs and that there would be tons and acres of empty seats in the new stadium because it wasn't in Queens work out?

    You're cherry picking the PSL "price" of a section and using it as justification that the Jets are somehow smarter than the Giants? Factoring in everything the Jets have done, how much they have spent from lobbying to marketing to advertising for YEARS now (WSS to today) - no chance whatsoever that the Jets are more profitable than the Giants. And that is the bottom line measurement of who is smarter.

    As for your buddy, I have no doubt that some people did things like that, but that is a vast minority. Most people didn't sit in those sections. Your friend was the exception, not the rule. This free ride assertion is a complete fabrication. Back then, Jets fans had season tickets because they wanted to go to all the games, not sell half of them. PSL owners sell so many tickets for 2 basic reasons. 1. They are encouraged by the Jets and technology makes it simple and 2. The cost for the seats are so expensive that selling a portion off helps justify the "investment".

    That is not a criticism of today's STH. If I were a PSL owner I would do the same thing. The dynamic has completely flipped.

    I'm so sorry for interrupting scintillating discussion such as this, that you like to have with other like-minded Jets fans. So good of you to call us out so that you can add your typical value to the board.

    More BS. Never ever said that. It just keeps on getting piled higher and deeper.

    Nice try at a diversion from trying to defend what cannot be.

    1) airlines extra charge for baggage, early boarding, and any seat that is 1in larger that steerage.
    2) cable companies charge us for channels we hate (YES and Big10) just to get access to channels we like.
    3) the gwb was paid for decades ago, but tolls continue to rise?
    4) New York taxpayers are paying for Yankee Stadium and Citifield.

    At least with psl's, the users pay the bill, not taxpayers.
