NFL Jets' Ticket Prices Hitting Record Lows On Secondary Market
Published November 29, 2012
UPRISING? In N.Y., Brian Costello wrote Jets fans should "skip Sunday’s game" in order to "get a message across" to team Owner Woody Johnson. Costello: "Don't sell your tickets, either. Make sure there are so many empty gray seats in the stadium that Johnson can’t even choke down a shrimp cocktail in his luxury suite. Instead of hitting Stubhub to unload your tickets, mail them to Johnson" (N.Y. POST, 11/28). Also in N.Y., Bob Raissman wrote, "It's worth wondering if any of the Jets’ corporate sponsors still want to be associated with the team." As things "stand now, only companies selling clown noses and whoopee cushions would benefit from an alliance" with the Jets. Raissman: "Unless, of course, the Jets’ current sponsors think there’s an upside in being associated with a team still leading the NFL in headlines." Even in the "aftermath of the Thanksgiving debacle against New England, Gang Green was generating media attention with stories of Tim Tebow’s cracked ribs." The "problem the organization has is that none of these distractions provided cover from the fact the Jets are now officially a media joke" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 11/27).
