So I was looking at PLS's that were up for sale and I notice that this one guy's PLS  (4 seats) were around $1000.00 per seat  but there were no Game tickets available with these seats, yet other guys had PLS for sale and Game tickets were also Available for his seats.  So how does this work?  I buy a PLS then the game tickets separately.  but If I have a PLS  and there are no game tickets for those seats how do I get in to watch the game ? also If you purchase a PLS are you considered  a season ticket holder?    you "own" the seats but not the tickets?  Do you make money off "owning" the seats and letting people who have tickets for those seats sit in them? It sounds like a double dip from the Giants /Metlife.   

 

I do plan on going to my first game this year albeit through a bus tour . Probably will be first home game of the season.

The PSL gives you the right to purchase the tickets. When these scams were first invented the idea was that you kinda lease the seats and get right of first purchase for tickets in those seats for all kinds of events on the stadium but that doesn't really hold up on a stadium owned by two teams that each sell PSLs

Don't bother. The new stadium is actually worse than the old one and PSLs are a fucking joke. Unless you're a multimillionaire the Maras aren't interested in making the game an enjoyable experience for you.

Isn't there like an 800 year waiting list for season tickets anyway?

As much as we love the Gints, Mara Jr is quite the little cockbag when it comes to business practices.

 

Not to mention the idiotic things he does as the head of the competition committee. 

 

Guy is one of the few dull spots of the team.

Used to be before the new stadium and PSLs. Now once your name is on the list they call you every offseason and practically beg you to buy tickets. Look at those stands during the games... many of the first tier sections are 1/3 empty, and the VIP section is often half empty or worse.

Mara fucked the golden goose. BiC is 100% right about him.

Fwiw I can barely watch games anymore cause of my work schedule. Most of the time I'm on WFAN or the Giants App.

I'm not really remembering where the PSLs came from. Did Mara start this or did it come from the Jets brass?

True, but for some reason (probably the blue colored shades I'm wearing) I can't see Mara being the one that initiated it. Part of me wants to believe he was forced at gunpoint to agree. (Not literally...)

Maybe, but I honestly never saw this guy in the same light I saw the old man.

Mara brought the psl's first and charged one for every seat in the stadium. Jets came in later and upped the psl price on the lower bowl, but there was no psls for the upper level.

I was always under the impression that things changed more (PSLs, parking prices through the roof) when Tisch bought in, rather than the younger Mara.

This exactly.  Wellington Mara said he wouldn't charge for them, he died, and his son decided to fleece the fans. 

 

 

“One of the first things Bob Tisch told me when he came in was ‘Raise the revenue, cut the expenses–everything else in business is bull—-,’ ” John says.
