    What do you expect? Its a playoff game vs. the jets. Season Ticket holders are usually fans lol. Don't expect much. No fan would give up this game.

    They show many tickets that pop on the screen as just reserved to a Buyer. The problem is that they were never available on-line to Ticket Exchange members. So who bought them?

    Yeah, i've had that issue in the past too, I don't get it. Someone (or something) must be clicking so fast to grab it before you can. Keep trying though; I've always been able to get tickets to a game on the ticketexchange that I wanted/could go to, sometimes it just took forever. For the last AFCCG against the Chargers I got 2 tickets on the 30, 2nd row 2 days before the game so there's alwasy hope! Goodluck!

    i've had the same problem. Not surprising considering its a Jets Playoff game. When you see "tickets do not meet your criteria", that means someone is in the middle of buying the tickets. If they dont complete the sale, they are released again. But its tough to get them, real tough. Keep trying.

    I believe what is happening is that all these ticket brokers have software constantly running in an attempt to buy as many tickets as they can. Individuals such as yourself are manually competing with a slew of very fast computer programs for a very limited number of tickets.

    Very frustrating obviously, but I don't know what the answer is other than to keep trying.

    Good luck.

    I have been trying on the exchange as well. I am constantly refreshing the page and have often seen the "Buy" option pop up for seats. When I click "Buy" it redirects me to a page to log in. It claims I have 2 minutes to log in before the tickets are released. I log in under 15 seconds and then it says my time expired. Something must be going on with computer programs, but it doesn't make sense since you need to be a member to get the tickets (not to mention there is a limit to how many you can buy).

    UPDATE:
    After 5 long days of refreshing constantly, today finally paid off. Got 4 tickets on the 30. You need to be really quick hitting "Buy" and then "Login".

    This is absolute BS. I'm having the same problem. Tickets pop up, I click buy, I log in (literally, takes 3 seconds) and it tell me I've exceeded the time limit. Between last week and this week, I've done this 50 times.

    Ticketmaster definitely has some sort mechanism running in the background to snag these tickets, and they are re-selling them on StubHub.

    Thats what I hate, if I click buy, and it takes me to the next page, with 2 mintues, I should have the tickets. That page SHOULDNT happen, if I didnt get the tickets.

    I click buy, login in less than 5 seconds, and my "time expired" everytime. It's the most frustrating user experience ever. If ticketmaster wasn't a god damn monopoly, we could boycott it.
