Take a look at a thread from the message board at TheGangGreen.com.
So, I received an email this morning from the Jets, inviting me to purchase season tickets for the upcoming season. Last time I checked I was #10,000+ in line (been on the list for like 2 years or so). I logged in and was presented with choices on all levels and up to 10 tickets. Have so many season ticket holders dropped out?
You have to assume the spending of the past two offseasons has been due to a projected financial windfall from the new stadium. The situation as tenant to the Giants hasn't been a great deal for the Jets from a business sense. You wonder what the near future holds for the team if things don't pick up. We already saw employees take an unpaid leave a few months ago. The NFL can probably bail out any franchise so I wouldn't worry about the team going under or anything, but the days of big spending could be over for a while if things don't change on the ticket front.
