Jet Season Ticket Holders Have Woody for Woody

    Received an e-mail from Woody Johnson this week announcing that the Jets have decided to put 27,000 seats aside in new stadium that will not need PSL. This will allow long time season ticket holders who do not want to purchase PSL's to still have a seat in new stadium

    Hedge Fund Harry may now be in their old seats but at least Firemen Eddy and his friends will still be able to have season tickets to the Jets.

    On surface this seems like a pretty smart play on the Jets part.

    Here is some of letter:

    For half a century, the Jets have enjoyed a heroic and deeply devoted fan base. Through thick and thin, you have stuck with us as we have migrated around the metropolitan area from one field to another, to another. Of course you are hungry for - and deserve - another championship. But you also deserve a home that you can call your own. Our goal with the New Jets Stadium is to create the best home field in football and provide a range of seating options so that Jets fans can enjoy the biggest upgrade in NFL history. In 2010 that goal will be realized, when all Jets fans can say, finally, we're the home team.

    While a PSL program is necessary to help finance this new building, we listened to our fans in designing the plan. We recognize that PSL ownership is not for everyone. That is why we decided to have no PSLs in the entire Upper Bowl - 27,000 seats including those on the 50-yard line. It is important to us that every season ticket holder who wants to buy a seat in the new building may do so. Seat selection priority will be based on how long a fan has been a season ticket holder. There are three options we are offering: No PSLs in the Upper Bowl, PSL ownership in the Lower Bowl and Mezzanine end zones and Club Member PSLs that include membership in one of four different clubs.

    It was announced more than a week ago that the upper deck seats would not require PSLs.
    Guess your e-mail is kinda slow.

    Nope e-mail works fine - just slow to post here and wanted to share the great news.

    If you were aware of story a week ago I am surprised that you did not post. It could have been a rare thread starter for you instead of bottom feeding of the rest of sj membership posts.

    It was in every NY paper last Tuesday.
    And honestly I could care less about PSLs.

    Great - where was the thread on sj? As usual you keep your title as devoid of original thought spitted

    These teams test this economy with PSLs at their own peril.
