  1. It amazes me that the author of this article gets any work as a writer at all. It’s like a 6th grader wrote it.

    No they don’t. The helmet changes color (deepens or lightens) depending on the light. They are close, but they are as off as the new Jet uni’s.

    Don’t bother, man. Losing battle.

    Look man, you’re trying to match a metallic color thats buffed out to a gloss, with a completely different material at a different company. It’s not photoshop. They’re off by a little bit. I work with finishes and mixing color all the time. No, they’re not the same. Perhaps the fabric could have been a bit more emerald. Margin of error. It’s not like the uni’s are olive drab or baby-$hit green. Step back a bit. You don’t like them, that’s cool. You don’t have to. I’m not a huge fan either (your complaint is not lost on me, I can’t not see that color difference either), but to not watch the team you barrack for because their helmets are a touch off is a bit dramatic, wouldn’t you say?
  5. Hehe, you are right though, they do look different.
  6. Light. It’s how color works.
  7. You’d love my mom’s place. Lots of doilies, flowery wallpaper, and tea cozies.
  8. Don’t you have a shotgun selfie to take or something?
  9. When metallics are involved you have to talk about finish. They’ll look different in sunlight than stage lights. In some pics the helmet is a pretty close match, but they’re never going to look the same. Their error is having the helmet be metallic while the rest of the fabric is not.
  10. God this is soooo awkward
  11. Yeah, hit close to home, I get it.
  12. This. Grown men wearing sports jerseys are trying way too hard to cling to their less-than-great youth.
  13. Are you compensating for that emasculating bedspread, or what? Nothing says 12 going on 55 like taking desktop selfies with a shotgun. Good lord.

    New Jets fan from Australia

    Western Bulldogs it is (red, white and blue)! They won a flag (championship) a few years ago, but were in an excruciatingly long slump. Don’t know about the stadium, but not many teams have a “home” stadium in AFL. There’s a lot of travelling over the course of a home and away season. Fans are as fair weather there as hers. So there you go. Doggies supporter.

    Welcome, mate. There are a couple of Hawthorn supporters in the group, so we’ve had a good decade, but you may want to consider a different team. Jets are cursed. May not be fun.

    Justin Houston- Cap casualty?

    Ha! I live right around the corner from that fountain.
  18. Good Lord. It’s just the way his eyes are. On the normal, average human eye, our top eyelid obscures the upper part of the iris. His don’t, so you see the whites above his iris. It’s uncommon and gives the look of surprise but is not indicative of any drug use. Watch any presser he’s ever given, you can see whites above his iris. If you look at the Jets Press room where they gave the conference, it has stadium style seating so as he’s looking at people it looks like his eyes are darting everywhere. The guy’s just looking around. Christ

    This Oughta Be Fun

    How do you watch these videos and come away with the bs you’re spewing? The guy has an edge. So the f what?
  20. Justin Smith is a very good comparison especially in hindsight, but I do remember articles that specifically mentioned Reggie in reference to Leo’s versatility to cause havoc anywhere on the line. Unfair comparison, for sure, but made nonetheless. Leo doesn’t exactly cause havoc anywhere, but he’s a solid player who appears to be frustrated. He’s just not a problem that needs dealing with. If the Jets pay him big time money, sure I can see fans getting irritated, but to trade away a solid player that you don’t have to worry about seems counter-intuitive to me, especially since he is a known quantity. Just pay him accordingly. If he won’t take it, then try to trade him.
  21. I do think the number is a touch high, but I definitely want Leo back. I don’t think there’s any reason to trade him. It creates yet another hole to fill, he’s not a terrible player (he’s not the Reggie White we were promised) and he and Anderson have been a nice combo. If this team adds a legit passrusher, the line could set for a while. Allow him to be coached by a non-troglodite and see what happens. 8-12million/year is more appropriate imo, but Whatever, it isn’t my money.

    DJax wants out...

    That wanker is still in the league?
  23. I can see the headline now: “Belichick/Rogers demolish McCarthy/Darnold in 2019 Super Bowl. How Jetsie would that be?
  24. I should’ve played the refs in my fantasy team. Rivers really screwed me this week.

    IF Jets finish season with 2 more wins

    In the past 5 years or so, I would call wins at the end of the season meaningless and hoped for losses more than wins for draft position. This year, it just doesn’t make much sense to me. We drafted a good qb at 3 last year. Yes it would be awesome to have the 1st pick and orchestrate these trade downs and end up recouping our losses from last year’s draft. This draft is heavy on defense early, it seems, so trade partners may prove to be harder to find. This team needs offensive talent the most. Whether that’s on the line or receiver, whatever. It just seems like drafting at 8 or so isn’t the roadblock it has been the past few years. I’d rather see Sam take strides against playoff caliber teams. If we win all of them, great. If we lose out, great. I see it as a win/win for the new coaching staff and fans. Having a 2nd rounder would be really nice this draft, though.
