BANG GREEN: In N.Y., Mike Lupica writes, "All this time after Woody Johnson bought the Jets, what do Jets fans really know about their owner?" Lupica: "You look at the Jets as presently constructed -- or reconstructed -- and wonder what kind of actual leadership comes from the top of the organization. If any." Johnson has "been at this long enough that he should have known exactly who, and what, he wanted" when replacing former GM Mike Tannenbaum (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 2/28).
TRIMMING THE IVY: In Chicago, Gordon Wittenmyer reported the Cubs are "ending one of their most popular traditions" by eliminating the annual two-hour preseason window to buy single-game tickets. The team on Tuesday announced that this year’s event, scheduled for March 8, "will be its last, claiming issues involved with the planned Wrigley renovation project as well as increased use by fans of online purchasing led to the decision" (SUNTIMES.com, 2/27).
