But.....the PSL(Personal Seat License) would be $5,000 a seat....and I'd like to get 2 seats. So that'd be $10,000, and THEN another $2,400 a year for the tickets for the 8 games, $120 a seat, $240 a game....I really want to make this happen, I don't know when I'll have the chance again for something like this....people in the past have said you usually have to wait 30-50 years on a waiting list, esp for a franchise like the NY Giants. So I'm trying to work a few members of my family to help out with this.....so yea....that's my story....and hopefully it comes to fruition!

Good luck on it. How often to you have to pay the PSL?

Well, obviously what you need to take into account is...

-Do you really care about the team that much?
-Would you be able to attend all or the majority of games?
-Are the seats better than what an average ticket may grant you?

If 2 out of 3 of those are "no," then it may be best to skip and simply buy the tickets for the games you absolutely can attend (when they become available, obviously).

Either way, it is a pretty cool thing to be offered.

The NFL is my favorite sport, I love it, but there's no way I would pay that kind of money.

I prefer to watch at home anyway, where I can get better views of the game, watch more comfortably, and follow other games as well. Plus I don't waste the rest of my day going to and from the game.

Sure, there is something very unique about going to a game, which is why I sometimes go to a single game during the season. It keeps it unique, and costs are limited.

Good luck though, I hope you are successful if you decide to really go for it! :)

Tell A-Rod they best way to make amends is for him to buy you the tickets.

I'm 99% positive the PSL fee is a one time charge....then we would just have to pay for the tickets each season...so who know what'll happen....i've got some wheels in motion, we'll see what comes out.

Green Bay did PSLs when Lambeau Field was renovated...it was a one time fee.

For a couple years after that, if I bought tix off people for a single game, they would tack on a few bucks to help cover their cost of the PSL, but I thought it was a reasonable amount and didn't mind paying that.

I don't remember what the PSLs cost here (back in 2003, I believe), but they were probably around 2 Grand ???

If me and I had the money for the PSL(once) and tikets, I would do it. You can always re group some of the cost by selling seat #2 to a friend

This PSL thing is going to affect alot of the fans in Jersey. The new stadium for the Giants/Jets needs to be funded, but the expense (and I mean expense in terms of fans who will not pay) might be more than the franchises want to admit.

Good luck Quack.

They started the whole PSL thing here in Chicago several years back. I was glad I wasn't a season ticket holder. I am lucky enough to have a friend who takes me from time to time to see a Bears game, no charge.

The Bears should give you tickets for what you did

Check the fine print, so they don't try to sell you NY baseball Giants tix.

If I had the time and opportunity (and that obviously includes finances) to get season seats for the teams I support, I'd still probably only get a partial-season package. And the fact that the Pittsburgh and Ohio State pro and college teams aren't near my home here in CA makes a big difference, too. :pleased:

I say, if you can, do it!
