The New York Jets held their annual Town Hall event at the NYCB Theatre in Westbury, NY on Wednesday night. It was a great time for all fans in attendance as they got to hear directly from the Jets’ decision makers.

The annual Town Hall event of the New York Jets was a great success for another consecutive year as fans had a great time getting to interact with head coach Todd Bowles and General Manager Mike Maccagnan. Team President Neill Glatt and Owner Woody Johnson were at the event interacting with fans as well.

The even was a great opportunity for fans to make their opinions heard, and ask some of the most pressing team-related questions. You could only imagine how many times a certain free agent quarterback’s name came up.

When the doors first opened, Jets fans got to mingle with other fans and some alumni including Tony Richardson, Greg Buttle and Erik Coleman. A few lucky fans even got to speak directly with Bowles, Maccagnan, Woody Johnson and Glatt.

After around an hour of that, fans started to sit down, so that the show could get started. Fans were then addressed by the team’s radio host Bob Wischusen. The real fun was only just beginning.
