    Tickets to be replaced by Swipe Cards?

    Heard this rumor from my cousin who's a Jets season ticket holder, said he read somewhere that the Jets in an effort to cut down on scalping hard copy tickets were planning on issuing season ticket holders swipe cards to be used at the gates instead of hard ticket scans. He said you still had the ability to print the tickets before the game but would be limited to a specific predetermined time frame. He said these measures somehow would limit the ability of ticket scalpers to push tickets. He's digging for the memo he read but has anyone heard of something like this coming down the pike for Giants Season tickets as well at MetLife?

    Sounds like TicketMaster wants to create a monopoly system for themselves to me..

    Well, I've been using Stubhub for years. Including my Yankee tickets..
    I never had a problem, or was contacted by the Yankees or Giants about the conduct of somebody who was in possession of my tickets.
    Unless I've always sold to respectable, classy fans in every single transaction..

    If a fan buys your ticket on Stubhub, and acts like an a**h*l*, you're responsible for his behavior..
    But if that same a**h*l* fan buys your ticket on TicketExchange, and acts like an a**h*l* in the same exact way. Everything is ok, you're safe..

    Why?? What's the difference?????????
    The fan still acted like an a**h*l* in both situations!!!

I always puckered up anytime I sold ticket to people other than very close friends. If someone did sometime stupid and gets thrown out you can lose your PSL if it was really bad. By using the NFL Ticket Exchange, which is the preferred method according to the NFL, you are held harmless if the person who buys your ticket screws up. If you sell on Stubhub and not the NFL Ticket exchange you are still held to your regular responsibility. If the guy who buys it on Stubhub screws up it comes back to you.

    Thanks Jet-Blue, it's all coming back to me. That's exactly how I remember it.

    I read through it, and the only thing I could see regarding the reselling of tickets is at the bottom of page A-2.


    (c.) Licensee is acquiring this PSL for Licensee's own use and shall not view to the distribution of this PSL or GIANTS SEASON TICKETS to others, EXCEPT in accordance with applicable Federal and State law;


    Well, Stubhub.com is a legal establishment, and is in accordance to "Federal and State laws". So the "thousands of PSL owners" including myself, who sell their unused tickets on Stubhub are "safe" in using Stubhub, in the reselling their Giants season tickets.
    No problem, best to base things on facts so we don't have to be hyper-paranoid.
