Should I make my son a Jets fan?

81 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a 10-month old son. He started watching me with the Jets last season. I've been a fan since the season before he Jets went to the mud bowl, and Richard "The second coming of Namath" Todd was QB, Freeman McNeil (hence, the screen name) was a great RB and Wesley Walker was awesome as WR. And yes, there was the NY sack exchange.

I have put myself through 30 years of mostly misery, save for a few flashes of promise, like when Parcells became head coach. A field so muddy that it was unplayable; a 10 and 0 start only to see the Jets lose heir final six games; Mark Gastineau retiring so hat he could go marry some she-male; 10-0 lead at halftime go up in smoke; Belichick abruptly quitting the NYJ; Doug Brien missing two easy field goals against the Steelers in the playoffs; the list of misery goes on and on, as you all know.

Seriously, would I be cursing my only son by exposing him to the Jet Nation of misery?

Absolutely.

 

As a matter of fact you should go out right now and get a real good deal on a size 1 #6 authentic jersey.

 

Get the kid used to a life of abject misery early.  ( At least that's what I read on here)  It works a lot better then if you try to wait until they are in their preteens, and flitting with their first Giants jersey.

My kids grew up watching the Jets with me and learned that football is dumb. Good luck with your son!

As a modertator you are required to answer Yes.  This way we get one more poster.  Cmon man.  Recruit.

The answer is Yes.  It is all about the law of averages.  It will work in his favor.

Misery loves company, so it's a YES, it's a right of passage. Welcome young Jet!

Real men make their kids football fans. Only posers make their kids fans of teams they aren't local to/or their father was local to. Only scumbags are Cowboy fans. And only pussies are Giant fans.

I have a kid on the way (my first), and I've been thinking the same thing.  It's almost like passing a curse on to your children.  

 

I know one thing: if I don't make my kid a Jets fan, he/she sure as sh*t won't become a Giants fan.  I don't want to hate my own kid....

Both of my kids are Jets fans. You gotta make your kid a Jets fan who would you take to the Hofstra practice?

I hear you.  lol

 

I wasn't blessed with any children, but I probably would have been torn if I was.  If I had a young child now, I probably would since things look more positive and hopeful (in spite of what I think about Sanchez, Woody, and Rex).  Back in the days of Richie Kotite and Leon Hess, definitely not.  Another part of me thinks the kid should choose for him or herself.  Just because I root for a team doesn't mean my kid has to, although it would be more fun if we did root for the same team.

 

Growing up in NC, I didn't have a team.  My father was a Redskins fan, but I just couldn't sign on with Sonny Jurgenson and the like.  I first became a fan of the Vince Lombardi GB Packers, then when Joe Willie Namath came along became a fan of the Jets.

Yes, and you should also hold up Lindsay Lohan as The Feminine Ideal.
