    Illegal Sweepstakes - Jets F'up ticket renewals

    If you have ever entered a promotional sweepstakes, you might have noticed the "no purchase necessary" heading somewhere. Why? If you make someone buy something to participate in the sweepstakes, it is an illegal lottery in most states.

    Since season ticket holders have to renew tickets (early) to be entered into the renewal sweepstakes, it is an illegal lottery.

    Pretty sure the plaintiff's bar would have found out.

    Once again, It means that the Jets don't make sure the details are taken care of before they act. After someone calls them on it, they will look stupid again.

    That a guy on the internet thinks he knows more about something his team does than the team? Because, you know, it's his team and they can't ever do anything right.

    Or how about this wasn't covered enough last time someone questioned this...

    It must suck being SOJF

    sounds like lawyer dog is upset that he hasn't won anything yet. Those of us who have are quite happy with the deal

    Hopefully lawyer dog chose the ACH option so he has 3 more chances to win one and stop acting all Johnny Cockroach about it

    The moronic part is people who paid early only to get in sweepstakes. All you had to do was tell them you wanted to be in sweepstakes OR pay your invoice early.

    This has to be the worst offseason ever, even the Kotite years weren't this bad.

    speaking of that, he did it again in the Players taking an illegal drop more than 200 yards forward of where his ball crossed the line of the water on the fourteenth hole yesterday.

    I think Bill Belichick is his new swing coach

    Actually he didn't this time, he dropped right where he should drop. Determined by all that were there and watching, including his partner. He played it exactly right.
