NY Jets Have Trouble Selling NON PSL Seats

Thought this would be an interesting piece of information for everyone. Being a season ticket holder for the New York Jets, they contact you first for the seats in the new stadium. I get a call yesterday from the Jets organization ticket representative Ryan again asking if I would be interested in a PSL. I am then told was my turn in seniority for the NON PSL seats as they were still available. Yes, the New York Jets still need to sell both PSL and non PSL seats. Amazing isn’t it?
Even with no PSL’s in the upper bowl of the new stadium they can not sell those seats. Woody Johnson keeps saying he sees a turn in the economy very soon. Unfortunately, not soon enough for some fans. Woody has also said in some media outlets that with time to go until the opening of the new stadium, he feels all seats will be sold. We will see if that will hold to be true.
Other season ticket holders have gotten 2-3 calls as well ovr the past few months. I find it amazing that the Jets are advertising for 2009 season ticket packages for the first time I can remember and they want people to think that PSL sales are going well. Not great, but well. Just once I would like some truth from a private company. It would show some integrity.

Jets vs Patriots – Sal and Carmine Tailgate

Well, today the New York Jets faced & DEFEATED the New England Patriots.  Yes, Tom Brady went down in defeat to the new Gang Green.  I had the chance to walk around the stadium grounds and get an idea of how tailgating has changes.  Some of the areas used last year have been built over and it seems less space is available.  Sal and Carmine though are right where they left off last year.  Feeding the masses while playing beer pong and playing poker.  One small fee gets you all the food and drink you can handle.  If you would like to tailgate with them, let me know and you can meet us all there.  Sal and Carmine’s tailgate have become “base camp” while Anthony & I roam the grounds.

I managed to get some footage and talk to some I had interviewed last year.  I found that some said one thing last year and this year it is a whole new story.  Some who said no to the PSL’s did end up getting them.  Some are in sections they did not think while others are sitting in the top of the bowl next to God.  I also came across some French Canadians who rented a bus and brought 40 or so fans down with them.  They were Jets fans and Patriots fans.  The ones shirtless below were some of the French Canadian Jets fans.  I also sat down and debated the Jets/Patriots game with guys form the website FanvsFan . Glad I won that one. They have an interesting site so check them out. In one of the videos Carmine gives his opinion of Tom Brady and a family member.  I this year did not predict Brady having an injury as I feel they will have enough problems over the season.  More to come next week when the Jets are home against the Titans.

New York Jets rally Videos NJ Training Center Sept 12, 2009

Well, I went to the New York Jets training facility in East Hanover this morning.  I got there nice and early to wait with other Jets fans outside the gates.  Had a chance to speak with Fireman Ed who was there to show his support for Gang Green.  We had a chance to talk about the documentary and might be sitting down to go over the Jets soon.  The rain did not damper the spirits of the fans that came out.  Many of the kids were able to play and bounce on several of the inflatable play areas.  The Hanover Park High School marching band was there to provide the music.

Several hundred fans lined up in two areas to create a “tunnel” for the Jets to run down and slap everyones hands.  Everyone was stacked up shoulder to shoulder.  Some little kids managed to squeeze their way in to see the players.  Dustin Keller was one of the first to come down the tunnel followed by Rex Ryan, Thomas Jones, Nick Mangold, Kellen Clemens,  & Ryan Sanchez to name the ones that passed me.  They gave out free lotto tickets, key chains, and other promotional related stuff.  Everyone who came out had a great time and could not have spent a better rainy morning.
