Jets are starting a rewards program for being loud So I actually get rewarded for beinga loud drunken idiot….LETS FUCKING GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

When the visiting team commits a false-start penalty or burns a timeout before the two-minute warning, ostensibly because of crowd noise, the fans attending New York Jets home games will receive “rewards” points that could lead to a seat in the owner’s suite or a ticket on the team plane for future games.

 

The perk is part of an incentive program for season-ticket holders, announced Tuesday by the Jets.

 

The Jets are eliminating paper tickets — each ticket holder will receive a wallet-sized smart card — while rewarding fans for attending games, showing up on time and being loud.

 

They can accumulate points, much like a frequent-flyer program, and the points can be redeemed for fixed-value items or fan experiences such as participating in the pregame “J-E-T-S!” chant on the field. Those that rack up a lot of points can bid for a seat in Woody Johnson’s box or Super Bowl tickets.

 

Once a fan has attended seven of the 10 home games, counting the preseason, the reward points increase. The same holds true for the longest-tenured ticket holders. Those in the more expensive seats receive more bonus points than the others, which may not sit well with some fans.

 

Late-arriving crowds have been an issue in recent years. Under the rewards program, fans receive 500 points if they’re scanned in at least 15 minutes before kickoff. They also can earn points for a “fan assist” — whenever the visiting team commits a false start, calls an unplanned timeout or allows a sack. If Muhammad Wilkerson sacks the quarterback … cha-ching — a 100-point bonus.

 

Points aren’t deducted for bad behavior.

 

This is a FUCKING AWESOME idea. Props to Woody, props to the PR team, props to everybody in the Jets organization. You guys don’t do a lot of shit right but you hit the nail on the head with this one. I try and go to a game or 2 a year and I feel like a fucking loser when I’m the only person in my section screaming. One time honest to fucking god a person down the row said to me “you know they can’t hear you right?”, well fuck off all of you up tight corporate fans, it’s time to take back the stadium. I love nothing more in sports than when a stadium is just going bannanas. When I went in 2009 to the Jets last regular season game, a win and we’re into the playoffs, the stadium was bonkers. People screaming, crying, throwing shit. It was the greatest thing ever. Now I can finally scream my head off and just say “sorry bro, I’m trying to win super bowl tickets”. Only real Jets fans can understand the aura of the J-E-T-S chant. That is us. That’s who we are. It’s a fan made chant. Blue collar.

there’s nothing else like it. I HOPE TO GOD this works, because we need every advantage we can get and if it takes bribing a bunch of rich people into clapping and enjoying the gutwrenchinly awful joy that comes with being a Jets fan, then so be it.

I went to the Jets Pats game last year and the loudest guy in the stadium was some ginger prick masshole just going apeshit. I was ashamed to call myself a Jets fan. Sure, I tried to out trash him, but without backup that’s a battle you just can’t win. Obviously we won the final battle when Folk kncoked in the 40-yarder to win, but that’s besides the point. Metlife stadium needs to erupt, it needs to be loud, it needs to be crazy, it needs to be a place where you can’t bring the wife and kids. Thank you woody, even if I don’t really understand this whole points system.
