Giants hawking PSL's at the wrong time
Apparently the New York Giants believe there is no time like right now to hawk tickets.
So, the team sent a mass email out on Thursday morning announcing the opportunity for fans to purchase a limited number of Personal Seat Licenses in the New Meadowlands Stadium. Never mind the funny little black labor cloud hanging over the game right now.
As Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News details, the “limited number” of PSL’s were pitched in the hours leading up to the expiration of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement with the players. Without a new CBA, there will not be football in 2011, not in the NFL anyway.
“The Giants will answer the bell," the email read, according to Vacchiano. "Will You?"
The owners and players are in Washington for meetings today. The goal is an extension of the 24-hour extension they agreed to on Thursday. Hope is a deal could be brokered in the coming days or weeks. Clearly, though, the Giants were not thinking when they went to sell tickets Thursday morning.
If you’re interested in those PSL’s, they’re available in three price ranges: $7,500, $12,500 and $20,000 per seat. Tickets for those seats then range from $400 to $500 to $700 per game. Do the math real quick and that’s $11,500 for one seat to 10 home games in 2011 on the low range. On the high range, you’re looking at $27,000. Who said the owners weren’t making enough money? Who said there will be football in 2011?
