For New Meadowlands Stadium
MULTI-FUNCTIONAL: Johnson Saturday also revealed that the Jets and Giants are "discussing a plan that would give the owners of [PSLs] first dibs on concert tickets and other non-football events" in the new stadium. Johnson said the plan may include a system for Jets and Giants PSL owners to "alternate events as they come along during the year." He added that the Jets' PSL plan "will be based, in part, on the response to a survey sent to season-ticket holders in June." Johnson indicated that the "lack of public funding for new stadiums in large cities has made PSLs a necessity" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/3).
TIME TO SPEAK UP? In N.Y., Phil Mushnick writes, "Give credit to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. While thousands of multiple-decade and multiple-generation Giants and Jets ticket subscribers are being driven out because they can't/won't pay the teams' mortgage on new PSL Stadium, Goodell has managed to ignore the issue, not a public word of regret or contrition" (N.Y. POST, 8/4).
