"In SBJ, NFL planning to make RedZone free on mobile 4 all season ticket holders, big part of push to create more value for season tix buyers
9:01 AM - 28 May 2013"
I'd rather have cheaper pre-seasons!!! Post season increases...pre-season should decrease.
I love going to all of the Jets home games but when the Jets are on the road, it's almost a relief sometimes....Just relaxing/cooking some good food, watching the pregames and making last second fantasy football decisions and then at 1 pm its football heaven for the day
Nothing beats watching my 2 HD Big screens side by side with redzone on one channel, and the Jets or a game of my choice on the other if the Jets aren't on at that time.....Have a few friends and family over and it's hard to beat that. Also helps that I bet games here and there and also play in a few fantasy leagues so there's always action and something to root for

Within five years you will see PSL's disappear. The NFL is caught in a catch 22, pun intended. They want you at the games, but need the tv revenue to pay the salaries.
As of now teams cannot fill all the seats because the high cost of tickets coupled with PSL's are keeping fans away. Tv coverage has also improved in the last 15 years.
All we need to do is look at our team and fan base for proof. Eventually the league will persuade the owners to drop the PSL's. They really need the best of both worlds. If the teams dont sell out, you get the black out. Nobody wins.
except for the fact that the NFL has the best attendance of any sport and the Jets or Giants haven't been blacked out for one game of any kind in any stadium they've played in since sometime in the 70s.... I eagerly await you returning in five years to admit you were wrong about your prediction in this post, too. I won't hold my breath though
Kraft got the equivalent money from Massachusetts after he hijacked them by holding Connecticut hostage. He makes up the rest by charging huge dollars for fans to park in unpaved garbage dumps outside his stadium, making them walk up to the upper deck and charging the highest gameday prices in the entire NFL. Plus you get to spend three hours driving in and out on a one lane country road.
Yessir -- he's a genuine Mother Theresa as far as owners go
The dirt lots are owned by independent operators. All Kraft lots are paved.
If you want you can take public transportation that stops at the stadium.
But don't let the facts bother you.
Oh yes, those in the upper deck have to walk. Oh the humanity.
And theres this.....
The New York Jets can at least call themselves champions in one category: ticket prices.
The Jets have the highest average, non-premium ticket price in the league at $117.94, according to Team Marketing Report's Fan Cost Index, which was released Thursday afternoon.
Team Ticket price
The Jets topped the Patriots, who have sold out every game since 1994, by 10 cents ($117.84).
In its annual survey, Team Marketing Report found that the average NFL ticket, purchased from a team, will cost $78.38 this season, up 2.5 percent from last year. The average cost to bring a family to the game and buy four regular tickets (not suite or club), two beers, four hot dogs, parking, program and two adult size hats is $443.93, up 3.9 percent from last year.
Besides the Jets and Patriots, three other teams have non-suite tickets that are selling for more than $100: New York Giants ($111.69), Chicago Bears ($110.91) and Dallas Cowboys ($110.20).
The teams with the cheapest average tickets: Cleveland Browns ($54.20), Buffalo Bills ($58.36) and Jacksonville Jaguars ($59.54).
TMR says 10 teams raised ticket prices by at least one percent this year, up from the nine that dared to make increases coming into the lockout last season. The largest increase? The Chicago Bears at 9.3 percent. The average cost of a beer at a game is up 15 cents from last year to $7.28, the study found.
You think he wouldn't have accepted that offer? he would have paid nothing and would get 90% of stadium revenue. All he got from Mass was a loan he had to pay back.It was brought to the attention of Kraft, the NFL, and Connecticut state officials that the riverfront area where the stadium would be located was contaminated with a plethora of chemicals.
Bob Kraft exercised an out clause in the Hartford contract two days before he would have been tied in and he escaped the agreement without financial penalty.
nice chart but skewed
1. Jets have around 600 seats (coaches club) priced at 700 bucks
2. That chart fails to take into account the reductions in UD seats to 50 and 75 dollars after it was published.
3. All the parking lots at Met Life are paved and the average price is 25 dollars a game. More than 50 percent of the parking areas around the Sucksboro Sh1thole are unpaved and rat infested garbage dumps for which fans are charged 45 dollars or more in which to risk their lives parking
The Patriots have by far the highest gameday ticket prices in the entire NFL. Krafty presumably needs that money to pay for those bimbos he is auditioning for TV jobs
eh, 3 people in a car its only 5 bucks more per person parking at Gillette, and when was the last time you went there? Every time I've been there it's been a paved lot.
@thecommishofthenfl - Starting next year, the Jets owner will invest in better LUBE for the ..... of Jets season ticket holders.
