What Lockout? Giants Push Tickets, PSLs For 2011-12

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — The Giants want you to “answer the bell” and buy Personal Seat Licenses for 2011-12, a season that might not even happen.

Big Blue sent out an email Thursday morning hocking their ultra-expensive PSLs, despite a looming lockout that could take place when Friday’s CBA extension expires at 11:59 p.m.

“A limited number of Personal Seat Licenses (PSL’s) have become available for next season,” the message read. “Don’t miss this chance to secure Your seats and cheer on Your team at the amazing New Meadowlands Stadium!”

Next season? What if there is no season?

Allowing the CBA to expire could put the two sides on the road to a year without football, even though opening kickoff of the 2011 season is still six months away. The labor unrest comes as the NFL is at the height of its popularity, breaking records for TV ratings: This year’s Super Bowl was the most-watched program in U.S. history.

Millionaires versus billionaires is the phrase used over and over by fans. Some side with the players, some with the owners — not that they have much sympathy for either. Some are equally repulsed by both.

“Everybody is talking about not (sending the checks), but when it comes down to it, they’ll do it,” one season ticket holder told the Star-Ledger. “It’s the drug called the NFL, and we’re all addicted.”

Fans can agree on one group that is getting shortchanged: themselves.

There are PSLs available in three sections, according to the Giants’ website, ranging from $7,500 – $20,000. Individual tickets are being advertised between $400 – $700.

“The Giants will answer the bell,” the e-mail read. “Will You?”

    NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO BUY PSL’S.
    IF THE WORLD WAS MADE FOR THE AVERAGE MAN WE WOULDN’T HAVE PRO FOOTBALL…THINK ABOUT IT!

  2. Dan O says:

    These are the same seats they’ve been trying to sell since the stadium was built – mezzanine level seats along the sidelines and the bigtime club seats on the lower level. They don’t get that people will not pay $400 to $500 a seat per game to sit in the mezzanine when 2 years ago that seat was $95, never mind the PSL cost. Poor market evaluation.

  3. Dan says:

    He loves to kill the Giants….no mention on how the Jets fired 30 people from the sales department, are planning 1 week furloughs for most of their staff and want 1/2 of their fans ticket money on April 1st rather than the normal date of May 15th

    F–k this S–T, I’m finished spending my hard earned dollars on these mega rich owners & NFL (national felons league) players. Not a penny more. Will watch on my giant screen from home with family and friends.

  5. Franco says:

    Maybe the Giants should just starting firing employees like the Jets are doing

  6. Jeff Crash Cunningham says:

    Did you write this blog bobby? Maybe Nick did, hense 3 comments! Hmm bad job anyway on the blog. Maybe Lupus should write it.

  7. AL says:

    JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLES OF THE GIANTS SHOWING THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THERE FANS. I WAS 22,000 SOMETHING ON THE WAIT LIST 2 YEARS AGO AND NOW THEY HAVE CONTACTED ME 4 TIMES TO PURCHASE TICKETS.THEY WON’T BE GETTING ANY OF MY MONEY UNTIL THEY TAKE THAT NY OFF THERE HELMETS AND UNDESTAND WHO THERE FANS ARE!

    1. KPMc says:

      So… it’s not the outrageous highway robbery called PSLs that prevent you from purchasing them but the NY on the helmets?

  8. John says:

    When have the giants stopped pushing PSLs for the past 2 years. They advertise every day on their website about Club Seats and they have staff at the games handing out flyers for these seats every game.

  9. Nick says:

    hey craig if you were the real voice of the people you would know that the giants have been pushing the PSL on their website for at least two weeks already
