    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.

    Membership in the Coaches Club, located between the 40-yard lines behind the Jets bench, will be sold in an auction open to anyone, giving every Jets fan the opportunity to bid on the 2,000 best seats in the house. Those who become members of the Coaches Club will have unique amenities and unprecedented access including on-field behind the Jets bench, complimentary premium parking, the ability to watch the post-game press conference live from inside the club area and other amenities. A seat in the Coaches Club is the closest thing to having a spot on the roster.

    Those fans who choose to become PSL owners will enjoy benefits far beyond their wider, more comfortable premium seats. PSL ownership includes the right to buy VIP reserved parking closer to the stadium, access to tickets to other events and concerts in the building (subject to availability), and the ability to finance their PSL over a five-year period.

    Every current season ticket holder who wants to purchase seats in the new building will have the opportunity to do so. Details about our entire seating and pricing plan, including a timeline and process for the auction, will be available at www.newjetsstadium.com.

    Thank you for your support of the New York Jets. We hope you will join us on opening day 2010, when, finally, we'll truly be the home team.

    Let's Go Jets!

    And you call yourself a conservative. :D

    An "opportunity" does not guarantee an outcome. If you don't want to buy a PSL, you can try for one of the 27k upper deck tickets. You just better hope there aren't 27,000 people ahead of you on the priority list.

    Sully is a hero.
    People who buy football season tickets are not fucking heroes.
    I stopped reading at that point.

    Does Sully get first priority or a discount on his PSL?

    Do you need a PSL to watch the chicks flash their tits in the concourse?

    Yes - at the club level they are going to have a topless restaurant as one of amenities.

    Is this where the 2009 Coors Light commercials will be shot?

    He's a jerk.

    And this letter is nothing more than Woody Johnson explaining to Jets fans that they are going to be strong-armed and there isn't anything they can do about it.

    Fireman Eddy: The new rainbow afro guy

    The thing I think most about now with Firemen Eddy was the fact that he was just getting off his shift when planes hit and instead of going to trade center to help, he drove home.

    I knew a guy who was a news-sider for one of the NYC tabs. Said tab sent him to the Colts-Jets 2002 AFC Wild Card playoff game to write a fanboy-and-fangirl parking lot story. One of the people that this guy talked to was Fireman Ed. Or, in this case, tried to talk to.

    Three or four hours before the 41-0 stomping of Peyton and the Colts, the guy introduces himself to a gorging himself with tailgate eats Fireman Ed, explains what he's trying to do and asks if he could ask questions. Fireman Ed said that he doesn't talk to the media on game days because he has to get in the right frame of mind. Obviously, because Fireman Ed plays for the Jets. Oh, he doesn't? He just sits on his obese brother's shoulders and leads an, oh-so-creative chant of "J-E-T-S...JETS! JETS!! JETS!!" Sure, that takes all kinds of mental preparation.

    The guy tries again, says it'll only be a couple questions. Fireman Ed gets mad, tells the guy to fuck off as his fellow firemen pallies begin to slowly walk towards the guy. Realizing that the firemen were going to beat the crap out of him, the guy booked to another part of the parking lots and was able to get Jets fans, who apparently didn't need to mentally prepare for the game.
