Will the PSL come to MSG?

OK, I haven't heard anything like this (yet) so I am posting this purely out of speculation and paranoia, but it seems to me that MSG has got to be watching very carefully what the results will be of the coming PSL's for the Giants.

And since the Garden will be getting a reno soon, is anyone else out there starting to hear PSL foot-steps?

They gotta be considering it.

doubt it. football is the only sport it'll work with cause of the number of home games and the constant schedule of sunday (sometimes monday) games...

I don't understand that at all. What does it have to do with Sundays? Or number of games played? or what type of sport it is? Don't they have this now for Columbus Blue Jacks?

Personal Seat License, or Permanent Seat license, depending.

Here's the Wikipedia def: "A personal seat license or PSL gives the holder the right to buy season tickets for a certain seat in a stadium. This holder can sell the seat license to someone else if he no longer wishes to purchase season tickets. However, if the seat license holder chooses not to sell the seat licenses and does not renew the season tickets, the holder forfeits the license back to the team. Most seat licenses are valid for as long as the team plays in the current venue"

Basically you buy a license to have the privelege of buying season tickets.

Sounds like a BS scam. You have to buy the rights to buy something, damn...

Personally I can see it happening, they seem to have no qualms about jacking up prices for many multiples over the rate of inflation, if they think fans will pay it they will do it, whilst this will incense a lot of fans I'm sure they'll bank on the many people on the wait list being ready to step up should some fans be unable to afford the cost of the PSL and season tickets.

because PSL's are an easier sell in football, cause NFL ticket's are usually the most sought after and hardest to get due to the long waiting lists for season tickets. many football teams are able to sell 100% of their season ticket packages due to their only being 8 games all on the same day as opposed to 41 for NHL and NBA and 81 for MLB...

The Leafs are the only NHL team that does PSL's.

I really don't see the Rangers doing it. In the NFL, there are only 8 regular season home games and there is such a demand for tickets that they know people will pay the one-time fee. While there is a demand in the NHL, it's not nearly that of the NFL. The Maple Leafs do that because they are in the same situation as most NFL teams up in Toronto..someone will always be interested in Leafs tickets no matter how bad they are.

So you are buying not only a ticket but the rights to buy said ticket?

Sounds like ******** to me.

The PSL will eventually come to either MSG IV.5 , or MSG V if that ever happens.

Life will suck more.

I don't think so. It comes down to demand.

The Giants have a 35 year waiting list for season tickets. So the demand is there.

Not so sure many NHL teams are willing to weather the backlash...

It has to do with the fact that there's a greater demand for football tickets. And season tickets are a lot more financially reasonable because there are only 8 home games (and additional preseason games). That means there are more people who would be interested in season tickets. And football is more populare than hockey. Hence the long waiting lists for season tix.
