Jets Not Coming Through on PSL Promises

To all that have PSLs, are are considering them, please read this post. Remember when the new stadium opened, and with the PSLs were promised essentially “pre-sale” rights to concerts and things, because you “own” the seats? Well apparently this is not happening. Take a look at this conversation that a reader of thejetsblog.com had with a Jets ticket rep, regarding the upcoming Springsteen shows at Met Life. Transcript courtesy of thejetsblog.com

Jets Rep: [3:17:42 PM] Welcome to the New York Jets online chat. How can I help you today?
Peter: [3:17:42 PM] Why are psl holders not getting presale for springsteen
Jets Rep: [3:18:12 PM] we have no word on that as of yet
Jets Rep: [3:18:24 PM] i do know Bruce has never offered a presale before
Peter: [3:19:03 PM] why is it his call completely? Jets and Giants own the stadium
Jets Rep: [3:19:38 PM] he is the promoter he decides where he will hold his concerts
Jets Rep: [3:19:41 PM] his rules
Peter: [3:20:18 PM] So metlife doesnt sign a contract with him that has their own provisions?
Jets Rep:[3:21:05 PM] Bruce is Bruce
Jets Rep: [3:21:23 PM] he can choose not to offer

The Jets were promising these exclusive rights that would come along with the PSLs, in order to help finance the new stadium. I certainly can’t blame anybody for buying in. We love our Jets and are going to do what we can to see them. However, judging by this conversation, you have to wonder. If you read this blog you know my theory is that Woody Johnson is driven by money. Clearly a promise is not being kept.

Proceed with caution with the PSLs, now everyone should be warned.

    I own 3 PSL seats in the lower end zone.  PSL owners have been offered pre-sales to the lower headliner events.  Lacrosse, Hot 97 Summer Jam, some college football games, soccer matches and I also think U2.   I can see how Bruce may be a hot topic for most fans to want.  But I think that a majority of the PSL holder bought their PSLs because they wanted to continue the tradition of going to the games.  I hate the fact that I have to pay for the rights to purchase season tickets, but I had a choice to walk away and didn’t.  I know other PSL owners who purchased them to make a profit, whther selling the tickets season by season or game by game or even selling the PSL for a profit. 
    I do believe as a PSL holder you should get more perks.  I just read that for the 50th Anniversary of the KC Chiefs each season ticket account holder is getting a custimozed Chiefs jersey.  That would be nice.
    When I purchased the PSLs I didn’t expect anything from the team except my tickets to the games. If they offer me anything else it is just gravy.
