As you can see by the
graphs of the home attendance for the Jets
, it was averaging near sell out levels through most of its history. This was not like many Phoenix Coyote games where they were often only half filling (or less) the building.
I always thought it was hilarious when, in defense of their fandom, Jets fans always bring up how the old barn the original Jets played in was one of the smallest in the league and the numbers aren't nearly as bad as they look. Not being able to fill one of the smallest arena's in the league is a good thing?
