    Wait until next year. They are in cap hell and Odell will eat up a lot of their cap. Some of their key defenders are free agent and Eli will be 1 year older. Dark days starting for Giants.

    I hope Jints start getting bad weather for home games and the place is empty. The Wholy then now Mara's can kiss my green jet ass. Cant stand how the media always starts a sentence about the Giants with how classy they are. They have had more thugs, drunks and wife beaters then almost any other team is sports. Not just there crack head, child raper sir Lawrence. F them. F Johnny Mara.

    Since giving up my seats I can choose not to buy tix when the weather looks to be horrendous as it was last Sunday. Thanks God I stayed home.

    A game like that one should piss everyone off even more that there's not a retractable roof, or at least plenty of cover at this place. I was always a "game must be played in the elements" kind of guy, but not once the prices became outrageous. We all deserve better.

    Be there tonight though - great weather!

    the cover in so many places is so fantastic at this point. between seattle and now miami with a tremendous amount of cover for the fans its a complete joke that there is barely a row that is covered in the mausoleum.

    A break from complaining about the stadium - great game to be at last night. Love him or hate him, Fireman Ed reappeared - I think seated in the second level, and he led a few Jets chants the likes of which that we hadn't heard in a while. It was cool.

    Hope Fireman Ed will continue leading chants. Jet Man and the others have done their best but it just doesn't resonate with the crowd. They seem to be out of sync in terms of timing. I don't think it's all on them... sometimes music continues to blare from the PA system even though they are trying to start the chant. Also, they don't get the large screen time that Ed commands when he leads the chants.

    I agree. With that being said, the production crew has to be more aware when Fireman Ed or whoever is trying to lead the stadium in the chant and work with the chant, not against it. If not, it won’t matter who is leading it. They need to post the chanter on the big screens, stop the music and advertisements and get the attention of the short attention span crowd. It’s like a constant battle between their agenda and fans getting into the game.

    Even when Fireman Ed was doing the chant prior to him stopping, there were issues with this. It seemed to be more prominent when we moved into the new stadium.

    Is Ed a great guy? No. Is Ed the best Jets fan? Hell no. Is Ed good at leading that chant? Hell yes.

    Been awhile since I posted here. Hope all are doing well and are enjoying this surprising 4-5 start. As I stated in the offseason, I plan on writing an article or blog post, whatever, on my first year savings as a non-STH. Happy to report that through, counting the Preseason, 7 games, I've saved over $1,400. I've spent less than $600 on 6 games, skipped the Titans Preseason game because I was away on vacation, and I've sat in some great seats, some better than the ones I previously had as a STH in the LL EZ. In fact the last two games I sat in Section 233 of the Toyota Club. Great time. Great seats. We'll see what Carolina & Kansas City bring, a lot depending on this TB game I assume, but I already know the Chargers game will be a big savings, being Christmas Eve and all.

    Oh, and I was very happy to see Ed back. I know him personally. I talk to him in the parking lot usually before every game. We text sometimes. He's always there. He's always been a fan. No you won't see him "back" as "Fireman Ed" every single week, but if this team makes a playoff run, who knows. Thursday wasn't planned either, as he didn't even bring his fireman's hat. Let the guy live. He really is a great person and Jets fan. Maybe I'm biased, but I feel like he just gets crapped on way too much.

    Tell us about the Toyota Club. Outdoor seats with indoor lounge? Food?

    Yep. Nothing is included, so you're paying for whatever food or drink you want, but the inside club area is very nice. Bathrooms are constantly cleaned, mopped, etc. Nice carpet on the inside. Much more food choices. Some fun giveaways/stuff for kids. It's good. I wouldn't pay $220 a ticket, which is face value for the corner seats there, but I paid $50, so it was worth it.

    yeah the only all inclusive (minus alcohol) areas are coaches club and metlife club on the lower 50-yard line, the commissioner's club, and any suite where you bought a catering package. I think the green room has some sort of included snacks or drinks though

    Hey MM

    Can you introduce me to Fireman Ed if you can? Would love to meet him during a tailgate. Let me know so I can send you my cell phone information.

    Basically then, it's better bathroom access, and the option of going indoors during the game if it's cold or wet. Would you say that the enthusiasm amongst fans in that area is less than had you been in regular seats? The fact that you sat there cheaply for that Falcons monsoon is incredible. I've bought on the secondary market a lot over the past three years and never saw low prices for that area.

    I couldn't believe it either. I got a great deal on StubHub. I'm looking 10-15x a day though in the lead up to the game, so I put in my time.

    Anyway, as far as the fans go, yes, it's definitely more laid back and more people who don't really care, unless the Jets are kicking ass, like they did in the 2nd half against Buffalo. A lot of people just kinda eating a bunch of expensive crap, taking pictures and staying inside, drinking cocktails.
