    I've never fully understood PSLs.

    Basically the idea is that you're buying the right to buy the tickets? So Y amount for the right to buy the tickets and then another X amount for the actual tickets?

    Yes.

    You pay to have the right purchase the season tickets for each seat. PSL stands for Permanent Seat Licencse (I think). If you fail to purchase your season ticket, you automatically forfeit your PSL. It is a complete hook to keep you paying for your seats. The longer you have season tix the lower the fixed cost per game you enjoyed becomes. It's a brilliant scheme to keep folks purchasing the tix. When enthusiasm dwindles, the program becomes in jeopardy because folks are ready to eat PSL cost as a loss. Folks don't want to keep throwing good money after bad when NOBODY WANTS TO PURCHASE THE TICKETS. That is why winning home games is so damn important. It simply isn't entertaining to watch your squad get smoked when you've upwards of $100-250 per ticket. Munchak sealed his fate when we lost to the Jags at home and then the Colts immediately after.

    I've been saying for a while that will be mass exodus of PSL holders at the end of this season if something doesn't change. Munchak is doing some good things from a player management standpoint right IMO but there is NO WAY that ownership will keep him around when so many PSL holders have voiced that they will eat the PSL cost to avoid purchasing next years season tix.

    Buddy of mine has had PSLs on the lower 50 since the first game ever played in Adelphia. Luckily, a few grand is what he makes in a day so its not a big deal. He hasn't been to a game in a couple seasons because he doesn't enjoy watching the on field product. His kid just got his license earlier this year so he's been letting his son take his buddies and his gf to the games this year. Me, personally? I haven't even seen a game this year. This is the first time in years I haven't made it to a game. The day Munchak and Co was hired, I started a thread called... "Not very impressed with this scrub coaching staff" and when there was an "It sucks" button, I got almost 40 it sucks.... I'm sorry that was right. This team is a mess and nepotism is the reason why. My choice was to hire Ron Rivera but the FO didn't extend their search past the hallway. I just wish this FO would have put as much energy and enthusiasm as they did in the Head Coaching search as they did that one time they tried to woo the Choke artist that can't beat Florida or the Chargers Peyton Manning

    This season & team hasnt been worth my time. Am i fake fan? I guess I'm a fake for not wanting to sit around watch garbage on Sundays. That's all this team has been for several years... pure garbage. Let's give Chris Johnson the ball so he can run make 1 yard gains.. while getting a 60 million dollar contract... while ticket prices and concessessions keep going up.. while people go to games and there's more AWAY fans than home fans.. then let's bring in a positional coach as the head coach. Let's bring in Hartford Colonels head coach as our OC... Its just Garbage.

    I was quite fine with getting rid of Fisher... ONLY if we got something better. Say what you wanna say about Fisher.. but Fisher's teams lost because they weren't talented, not because they consistently made mistakes that are easily fixed by good coaching.
