    Forgive my ignorance. The two teams share a stadium, correct? So when they play, which season ticket holders get their seats? Does it count as a home game for both teams? Do the ticket holders who don't get their seats get a discount that year?
    Thanks in advance.

    Just like any in any other situation the home team fans get the season's tickets. Last night it was the Giants "hosting" the JETS.

    That makes sense. So the next time they meet, it would be the Jets hosting. And the Jets would still get their full compliment of home games since this was an away game, so no discount to Jets season ticket holders.
    Thanks. I think I get it now.

    They are going to share the new stadium too.

    Season tickets reside with the team, not the facility. So regardless of how many times they play (though since one is NFC and the other AFC it would never be more than once a year and only in years when the NFCE is scheduled against the AFCE) it's the hosting teams fans who are ticketed for that game.

    It makes sense, a stadium is a huge undertaking, and it sits empty most of the time. Why have 2 when 1 will serve two teams just as well?

    I agree with the reasoning, Pujo. I'm just trying to wrap my brain around the logistics.
    What about stadium practices, locker rooms, staff offices....do both teams have full facilities (comparable to say, those at Gillette)?

    No, it's going up in the Meadowlands complex right next to the old stadium. It will not be named Giants Stadium (or called The Meadowlands by it's alternate resident) this time though as the old one was by lease terms the Giants controlled since they moved in first and the JETS only joined them when they moved out of Shea. It will have a corporate sponsors name for the naming rights fees since it's construction cost is rising by the day.

    The JETS had a plan to build in Manhatten but cost and politics killed that in a hurry.

    Obviously they would have to. It's a huge complex area and an 80,000 seat stadium so there was room for seperate practice fields. Most teams don't practice in stadium all that often. Obviously this was jerry rigged while the new facility will be designed to accommodate two tennants from the get go. The teams only face each other once every 4 years and the league schedulers know the situation so schedules are set accordingly. The old stadium features Giants colors that have to be covered up with banners. The new one will likely feature a lot more interchangeable panels to accommodate advertising as well and a neutral color scheme.

    And common sense regarding parking. It's a nightmare as it is getting out of the Meadowlands after a game. They are also building ahuge development called Xanadu
    http://www.meadowlandsxanadu.com/static/node1304.jsp;jsessionid=auxi1hM_97w9IqM4-v
    that is scheduled to open in 2008 .......
