    I remember going to the Meadowlands to see my first Dolphins game. Game where Ginn returned 2 KR's for TD's . There's a good crowd of Dolphin fans that go though, more then you'd think. And the Jets fans aren't bad at all, I had no problems. Us Fin fans had a lot of chants going too, was a fun day.

    Have Fun!

    Guys, thanks a lot for the responses!!! Really appreciate it. So if I take the bus, the only question is where do I tailgate? I don't expect many fans to be welcoming to 4 guys in Dolphins jerseys LOL. We need somewhere to store a few cases of beer....

    I've been to a couple dolphin games at Giants stadium, but I live in nyc.

    1) Check out seatgeek. They have a good approximation of the value you're getting out of each seat.
    2) Doesn't matter as long as its near a subway. You won't be spending much time at the hotel. Midtown is the touristy part but downtown is much cooler (anywhere below 14th and above Canal). It's easy to get to time square from anywhere in manhattan.
    3) The games I went to, the fans were so miserable that they fought with each other rather than us in dolphin jerseys. Though I've noticed lately they have been showing a little more swagger. It's pretty civil though compared to buffalo or new england. People in New York have lives outside of football. I had snow thrown at me all game in Foxboro. Never have had anything like that here. Definitely wear your jersey. There will be many women and children wearing dolphin jerseys, so you have no excuse.
    4) Yea it would be tough to tailgate without your own car. Yes it would be crazy to get a limo, but I like your thinking.

    yeah stay near times square, although the commute (although not bad) is kind of more of a pain than you may imagine from Manhattan to the meadowlands. You'll have to rent a car or something. Public transportation in the city is great and easily accessible as others have mentioned, so as for where you stay in the city it doesnt matter much, but i'd choose midtown.

    As for the game, its all fun, there will be TONS of phins fans there. We are there every year and we come out in droves. Jets fans will jaw a little and you can jaw back, its all in good fun. In the upper level seats there can be ******* kids or even older drunk guys - i've had to deal with them before. It is like any other stadium when you are the visiting team - talk logically and be calm. You can cheer for your team when they do something, but respect the home teams building. They like to talk alotta crap about everyone on their team so you can prob bash sparano, sanchez whoever with them. as the poster above me said - Metlife is a great atmosphere and people from NJ/NY have much better things to do than get really violent etc at a football game. The occasional drunk is there and gets into trouble and is promptly thrown out (although the last time that happened with me, it was actually a Pats fan who grabbed my gf's ass for wearing a giants jersey at a giants game! i've seen them in miami at the game too, no respect man, no respect those people) anyway have fun up here! and dont shy away from NJ either there are some nice areas in north jersey to visit as well.

    I wouldn't step foot in that place. Just me I guess. I know some jet fans and would not want to be around anyone of them for more than 15 minutes.

    How does parking work at MetLife? Do you have to pre-purchase passes or can you just pay when you get there?

    I went to this past year's game and we stayed in NYC and just took the train from NYC straight to the stadium which was nice. I would recommend taking a backpack for the way back on the train and putting your dolphins stuff in there as a lot of people are drunk and might throw stuff and get out of hand but thats just what we did. Our tickets were on the 90-100 area pretty high up but we were surrounded by fins fans and were lucky and we talked **** to the jets fans at the start when they couldnt get a first down lol. they will talk **** and stuff outside and inside the stadium but hey its what is expected.

    Good call on the subway exposure after the game LOL. Me and the boys will have to dry straws to determine DD for the game. Rental car is the only way to go.

    Dolphins @ Jets Tickets!!

    Friday, August 3rd, 2012 Hey DolfansNYC!
    We hope everyone is having a great summer! Hard to believe that football season is only 5 weeks away. Can’t wait for it all to start again and for everyone to get together at Third and Long!
    We have GREAT news — as you know, every year we organize a large group of Phins fans to invade the Meadowlands to see Miami take on the Jets. And every year we do our very best to get everyone sitting together, at least in neighboring sections.
    This year will be our best effort to date as we’ve been in touch with the Met Life Stadium Ticket Office and they have FOUR back-to-back rows (all seats in all 4 rows TOGETHER) available for us if we want them!! The game is at 1:00pm on Sunday, October 28th.
    That’s a possible 111 Dolphins fans sitting ALL TOGETHER!
    This is ONLY possible in one section of the stadium. All other group seats are more scattered, so we wouldn’t all be together.
    The seats are in Section 323, Rows 16 – 19 (Click here for the stadium seating chart).
    HERE’S THE DEAL AND WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU:
    -The price of the tickets will be NO MORE THAN $75 per person. NO TAXES. NO FEES. $75. That’s it. (For the record, this is the LOWEST that DolfansNYC has ever paid for their group tix!)
    -Please e-mail us ASAP at DolfansNYC@gmail.com and tell us if you are interested in attending the game as part of our group. I HAVE TO CONFIRM WITH THE TICKET OFFICE IMMEDIATELY SO THEY HOLD THE SEATS.
    -Please ONLY respond if you are sure you can be there and if you are able to get the money to us within the next week.
    -In order to reserve the seats we have to put down a deposit and I can’t put that all on my credit card.
    In addition to attending the game, we are definitely looking into the cost of organizing a bus to take us to and from the stadium so we can travel together and tailgate. More details (times, costs, etc) on that to come later.
    Right now we really just need to know who is in for this group of tix so we can reserve them before we lose them. Please e-mail us at DolfansNYC@gmail.com and let us know how many tix you want.
    Thanks everyone!!!
    -Michelle & Igor

    Dolfans NYC now has 175 tickets all in sections 323 and 322. If you want to come with us and tailgate hit up dolfansnyc@gmail.com and my partner Michelle will get you the info but we are sold out of tickets. If you want to be near a TON of Phins fans get your tickets online in one of those sections. We will roll deep!
