The New York Jets are using variable pricing for season tickets for the team’s 10 home games, including the preseason, at MetLife Stadium this year.
“After considering many factors, we determined to keep season ticket prices unchanged for the 2015 season,” Jets president Neil Glat said Tuesday.
Idzik, in just his second season as the general manager, might be fired by Johnson after the year, though Ryan’s seat appears hotter.
The angry Jets fans behind the “Fire John Idzik” billboards are planning to make a statement at the Jets’ final home game of the season on December 21.
The two discussed the fate of Rex Ryan, the quarterback competition, the current roster, the future of the franchise and much, much more.
Jets president Neil Glat said that about 3,000 seats in the upper level will cost $50 per game, raising the total of such tickets to nearly 9,000 out of 27,000 upper-bowl seats. No public seat licenses are charged for upper-level seats.
“He owns the team,” a source told the New York Post in regard to Woody Johnson. “All he had to do was say ‘no.’ Nothing is ever forced on Woody.”
“(It’s a) serious organizational issue at the heart of the Jets’ culture,” one executive told Metro. “I’m not sure if, with all due respect, that what Mr. Johnson is saying adds up.”
Former Denver Broncos executive Ted Sundquist, who interviewed with the Jets for their vacant general manager position, reportedly said that team owner Woody Johnson said that Tim Tebow was “forced” on both him and team president Neil Glat.
John Idzik will try to turn things around for the troubled New York Jets. Woody Johnson believes he’s up to the massive task.
This may seem like a harsh way of reacting to Sunday’s loss, but the Jets stink right now — top to bottom. It’s time to hit ctrl-alt-delete.
Jets president Neil Glat said the dip in prices is being made “to improve the value for our fans, especially our season ticket holders.”
Jets chairman and CEO Woody Johnson announced on Wednesday that the Jets have hired Neil Glat to be Gang Green’s new president. Glat was previously the NFL’s senior vice president of corporate development.
