On Sunday morning, NFL Network’s Mike Lombardi suggested at the tail end of First on the Field that the Jets were more than 12,000 tails short as of Friday when it comes to selling tickets to Monday night’s game against the Texans.
A Jets spokesman tells PFT that the report isn’t accurate. The Jets don’t, and won’t, comment on specific ticket figures, but the Jets say that all home games will be televised.
Of course, all games will be televised if the Jets and/or their sponsors buy all unsold tickets at 34 cents on the dollar.
It’s still unclear whether and to what extent the Jets are having trouble selling tickets. But if there’s any issue with putting butts in seats, it could be time to send Mark Sanchez’s butt on the long metal seat that is kept on the sidelines.
