New York Giants fans will finally get something to smile about after their beloved team choked again last season.

Giants co-owner John Mara, told WFAN’s Mike Francesa that season-ticket holders won’t have to pay for tickets until owners and players reach a deal for a new collective bargaining agreement this offseason.


Mara told Francesa that season-ticket holders will receive a letter that states they won’t have to pay their bill until an agreement is reached. Ticket-holders do have the option though, of paying in full by May 1.

He told Francesa he’s optimistic that a deal will get done, saying, “We’re only in March. We have a lot of time to work this out.”

For part of last season the Giants looked like one of the best teams in the NFL, but they couldn’t sure up a playoff spot late in the season. Their defense under Perry Fewell struggled in the two biggest games of the season against the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers, when the defense gave up, 38 and 45 points respectively.

The most crushing defeat came at the hands of the Eagles after the Giants blew a 21-point fourth quarter lead. Eagles wide receiver and punt returner, DeSean Jackson, scored on a Matt Dodge punt in the final seconds of the game.

The Giants beat the Washington Redskins in the final game of the season but lost out in a tiebreaker after the Packers defeated the Chicago Bears.

Fans also voiced their frustration over personal seat licenses. In order for season-ticket holders to buy tickets they had to purchase a PSL.

If nothing else, fans won’t have to worry about paying for tickets that they might not get to use if owners and players can’t agree on a deal.
