    Let's see.

    WSS was going to hold 70,000 people.  MetLife Holds 82,500.

    Half the seats are empty during the game. They are all hanging out in the "lounge" areas, staring at their phones. 

    WSS had no parking and no tailgating.  MetLife has limitless parking and taligates as far as the eye can see.

    Metlife has been slowly taking away tailgating. Limiting the hours available, and raising the parking prices. Plus, there is a whole side of the stadium with no fan parking. It's for the train station, player parking, and the interactive game day BS.

    WSS was going to have average seating costing $250.  MetLife seats average $125.

    The team has and currently sucks. Prices would have dropped no matter where they played.

    WSS was going to attract far more enemy fans, as if MetLife wasn't bringing enough way out of the city.

    The Jets would finally have their own home, for the first time in ever. And played in NYC. We could finally look down at where the Giants play, and possibly have gotten more fans over time. (of course, winning helps that the most)

    WSS was going to have 25% of its seats as suites and clubs.  MetLife has less than 13%.

    Again, no one is in their seats anyway.

    WSS was predicated on mass transit.  In Manhattan.  MetLife is infinitely more accessible.

    I live on the Jersey shore. would have been cool to take the ferry to the stadium, drink the whole way there, and not worry about the drive home.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Just popping in to say that I’m very sad to see the Yankees belabored by Aaron Judge’s and Giancarlo Stanton’s transparently steroid-related soft-tissue injuries. Very, very sad for Yankees fans to have to go through this. Very sad 

    The over/under for Yankee wins still sits at 196

    In all seriousness, I've often wondered about the "rep level" of some older posters here. Maybe you, or someone else can explain it to me.

    For example, I'll see someone with maybe 10,000 posts, and 70,000 likes. It makes me wonder, did this guy end prohibition, or something like that? I'm exaggerating the #'s obviously, but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

    How was it possible that they racked up so many positive reps with so few posts?

    I can't really say, but after circling the bases with all of my positive rep, I definitely did not want my jersey ripped off.

    Yes, it’s that time of year, everyone here is talking draft, and ranking the top prospects. I thought it might be fun to do something different. How about we rank ourselves?

    That’s right, we each submit a list of, let’s say, our top 20 favorite posters. They don’t have to be people you always agree with, but they should be people who bring something to the table.

    Funny, smart, homer, troll, draft guru, whatever, as long as they make things interesting around here. Twenty is a random number, so if you want to do more, or less, that’s fine. Comments can/should be included, but... Let’s just try to keep this fun, you can be critical, but try not to get nasty.

    I might add that I’ve kind of put the cart before the horse here. I don’t have my list made up yet, but I’ll start working on it now. So take your time, and again, let’s err on the funny, not mean or nasty here.

    OK, you’re on the clock!!!

    I thought the rep level pretty much determined that. There are some legendary names on top of that list.


  5. Clearly, this is a a case of age discrimination. The League should look into this.

     

     

    Titans WR Adam Humphries: Tom Brady's age factored into decision not to sign with Patriots

    Lorenzo Reyes

    What I'm Hearing: USA TODAY Sports' Jarrett Bell is on hand for the NFL owners meeting in Florida and tells us what he's hearing regarding news surrounding the draft and combine. USA TODAY

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, by all accounts, is one of the best to ever play the game.

    But one free agent receiver spurned the chance to play with the three-time NFL MVP and the perennially contending Patriots when making the decision on his next team, in large part because of Brady’s age. He will turn 42 years old before the start of the upcoming season.

    “Obviously, he’s the G.O.A.T. That’s that simple,” slot receiver Adam Humphries, who instead signed with the Tennessee Titans, told The Athletic of Brady. “But there’s so much that factors into a decision. It was a four-year deal. Who knows how many (years) he’s got left? There’s a lot that goes into it.”

    Brady has repeatedly stated he hopes to play until he is 45.

    Humphries, 25, signed with the Titans on a four-year contract worth $36 million and $19 million guaranteed – even after New England made a late attempt to lure the receiver.

    “… Obviously the chance to play with him would have been awesome, but a lot of things factor into that decision," Humphries said. "Ultimately, I thought this was coming here to a team that was on the rise and with young talent on the offense and a really good defense. They’d had a taste of the playoffs. I felt like my need at the slot position was great. I felt like I could really contribute and start something new here.”

    The Titans are led by quarterback Marcus Mariota, 25, and are coming off of a 9-7 season. The Patriots, on the other hand, toppled the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

    New England, in fact, has won three of the past five Super Bowls. Brady and Patriots coach Bill Belichick each have six championship rings.

    Mariota has one career playoff victory in four seasons.

    Humphries is coming off a breakout campaign in which he caught 76 passes for 816 yards and five touchdowns for Tampa Bay.

    Great, another JetNation mod taking advantage of the pension system and retiring earlier. You should see @TaborJet's house. And @BP has a $90,000 pick up truck. We are going to have to change the benefit policy around here.  :)

    By not spending money on season tickets, we are living the dream here!

    Ah, this brings back memories of when @TaborJet and I were going through our initiation. 

    If signed earlier, one of us would have been the gimp. Just as well, though. I get claustrophobic, which surely would have affected my future performance.

    Regardless, this was all before 60 Minutes did that hit piece on our now-defunct mod hazing program. In her 1-on-1, Leslie Stahl really showed everyone a more evil side of @Maxman that he'd previously kept so well hidden, and it's the only reason the public knows him for the monster he is. They also had that bright camera light in his face, making him look super-guilty, not to mention even fatter and pastier than he is in real life.

    So, good on her for exposing him, but she didn't need to release this photo on national TV. I have a family.

    Not sure why there was the surprise prostate exam, either..

    Don't be sorry, it was expected.

    I think @T0mShane should have been in this dream. He is one of the few posters from this site that have been in my backyard.

    Other posters include @TaborJet, @faba, @courtnj18, @BP, @The Gun Of Bavaria and @joebabyny.  I think that is the complete list, the privileged few lol. Sorry if I left anyone out haha.

    I remember Phil, Jim, Phil's son, and myself watching the Patriots dominate the Jets in your man-cave. The highlight of the evening? I believe Mrs. Max made us all wings.
