    Well, when the Jets were making their runs to the AFC Championship, the ticketing situation was still a dumpster fire. 7-8 years later prices have gone up, people have defaulted, and flat panel TVs have only gotten wider and more high res. No amount of Jets success will make the tickets worth what they are asking

    Maybe not, but I still feel funny when I'm not in the stands for a home game. But, I'd rather feel funny a few times a year than write out 5K checks to the Jets. I still enjoy going to the game and if we somehow develop into an AFC power, I'll want to be there. Maybe it'll happen when the NFL eliminates preseason games.

    absolutely no chance, not under this ownership group. not in this shitbag stadium.

    They have ruined everytihng that being a season ticket holder was about. they have gouged their loyal fanbase and screwed them mercilessly.

    fuck them and fuck that stadium.

    Mod, you knew the answer, you just wanted to fire our asses up. Nothing has changed for any of us. I'll just pay more for selected games when and if we get good and in the end pay less for that season then if I had seasons. No value, you cant give away pre-season, you eat parking, and you basically do the same for a regular season game if you can't make it unless its against the Pats, Pack, Steeler... etc.

    sec314. I really didn't mean to fire your asses up. I have never been a STH. I am very excited now that Darnold is a Jet. I am seriously contemplating becoming a STH and wanted to see how you guys felt. :)

    My 24 year old nephew was thinking about their latest lower-priced upper deck season plan, and I encouraged him to do it, despite my situation. (But he's not though). Their current $50 deal - or whatever it is, isn't a bad deal for a new fan, especially a young who fan never did it before. It's a different situation for others like myself who have paid SO much for SO long, and know that we'll never get the same experience again. I had Loge seats at Shea, under the overhang lowers at Giants Stadium, and it too hard not to miss that when sitting in MetLife. Not only that, getting to and from the car to the upper deck seats in this stadium SUCKS. Worse than Shea, or so it seems. Hard to imagine they could pull that off.

    Be excited, but put emotion aside. Let us be your sanity and reality.

    I am a new Jets fan. I never watched a game at old Giants stadium. So Metlife is the only Jets stadium I have ever been. But I take you old timers word for it.

    I "served" 5 years at Shea, pretty much attended every Jets games at Giants Stadium. I've trashed MetLife Stadium a lot in this thread, but I will say this: It's not terrible sitting in the Lower Level, or even the Mezzanine - although I have sat in the upper rows of the Mezzanine End Zone and didn't care much for those seats either. When I go to a game, I get to my seats and stay in them. At halftime I'll get up to stretch my legs, and through the course of a game maybe, but not always, I'll spend time on a concession line. I'll hit the men's room once maybe twice all game. I don't need much. It's disappointing how antiseptic and ugly the place is after we were promised a great building. Even worse, after we experienced the stadium for ourselves we were still told it was great, and they got a Super Bowl for building it. Absolutely unbelievably they won design awards for a stadium that has safety issues that I've witnessed, has pedestrian ramps that you have to be an idiot to use (you'll only do it once - unless you need the steps for your Fitbit challenge), stairwells from the outside concourse that lead only to the upper level (anyone ever get caught in that rat-trap? They do not exit to the first level! You are stuck ascending Everest) On the other hand I got invited to a "basic" suite once for a Giants game, and it was as if I was in a completely different stadium. I am not exaggerating. Entire different universe.

    So, yes, watching a game from MetLife isn't so bad from many areas of the stadium, but there's plenty of opportunity for misery.

    and 75 dollar mezz seats turned into 7500 psl with 450 a game prices. fuck woody johnson. built a shit bag mausoleum. the only good thing is that its 8 years old and they will probably replace it at 20-25. bunch of assholes. hopefully woody falls off a cliff and someone whose a real owner that actually gives a shit about the jets and their fans buys them and turns this franchise from a turd.

    problem is the only guys with the cash and the want are idiots. imagine if that asshole dolan owned the jets..... scary to think it could still get worse.

    the whole town is a catastrophe ownership wise. mets, jets, rangers. the only ones that seem to have a head on their shoulders are the giants and of course the yankees.

    i was talking with a buddy of mine the other day and he said i dont want the mets to win, i want them to lose and i want them to lose as embarrassingly as possible because that is the ONLY way anything will ever change. i like to blame sandy alderson but really when it comes right down to it the way a team runs is based on the owner and the way he wants his business to run. the mets and the jets are a complete abortion and it starts at the top. its really sad.

    I think we all have a "buddy of mine" who thinks that way. Unfortunately, that won't get it done with the Mets. They've recently had sustained bad multiple season stretches, and nothing changed. Fred is handing the team to Jeff, and that's that. After Fred is gone, maybe Jeff will sell a significant chunk of the team to someone with more competitive fire who won't just accept that the Yankees can't be matched. While I've never been a Woody fan one bit, I wouldn't describe our Jets ownership as a catastrophe, though in keeping with this thread-theme, the handling of the stadium situation is a near catastrophe.

    i view jeff wilpon to be the current main issue.

    i feel as though woody is as clueless as jeff is, he just isnt as involved and therefore only screws up the big things like the stadium, hiring of upper management and lets those guys screw up the day to day. i think jeff is far more involved with how the mets are run and what their direction is. and its an abortion. one could say when the muts opened dodgers stadium east it was an abortion as well. although their stadium stands up much better than the mausoleum.

    Did anyone get a package from the Jets that required a signature? Apparently they attempted to deliver it and sent it to a ups pickup point. If I don't pick it up it gets sent back to them. Any idea what it could be?
