Jets Want $500 Per Seat for Upper Deck Seats

Want tickets for the Jets in their new stadium? We already know that it’s going to cost you a pretty penny, but today the Bergen Record wrote about the deposit you’ll have to put down for upper level seats:

Some of those same fans are now seething about the Jets’ notifying them recently that fans in the non-PSL seats must now put up a $500-a-seat deposit — 16 months before the first regular-season game in September 2010 at the new $1.6 billion building. Several aggravating factors are cited by some Jets season-ticket holders: The upper-deck seats are being distributed in order of seniority, so the deposit is being sought from the most long-suffering fans of a franchise that hasn’t won a championship in 40 years.

The Jets charge 8 percent annual interest to fans who pay their lower-level PSLs in installments, but the team is offering no interest on the money it is collecting so far in advance. The bills also are arriving less than a week after the May 1 deadline — only a short time after most fans just paid for their 2009 season tickets, the final year at Giants Stadium.

    I’m buying my seat “property” outright. I have the seat information being sent to my agent at Coutrywide. I will take out a 50 year Jumbo with the first ten years at a negative interest rate that reverts to 3 times the normal rate in the 11th year. With some luck I should be dead by year 11, LOL.
