On the same day the New York Post suggested the Jets could face blackouts in 2010 because their personal seat licenses aren’t selling, owner Woody Johnson promised that “the biggest show in town” would be seen on New York televisions throughout the Fall.
“They’re not going to be blacked out,” Johnson told Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.
More than 10,000 PSLs remain available, but Johnson isn’t worried.
“If we’re not sold out, we will not have blackout games,” Johnson said. He also said he wouldn’t get around the blackout rule by selling the season ticket seats game-by-game.
The Jets haven’t been blacked out since 1977, but the panic in New York over the possibility may have spurred fans to shell out some bucks.
“We’re having one of our best sales days in a long while today,” Johnson
Maybe that was the idea all along.
