  1. I think he did it mostly for the money. There is NO state tax in Florida & the real estate taxes in the New York & New Jersey area are a lot higher.  (I used to live in NJ & now I live in Florida.)

    And "yes" I think he used the Jets to drive up the price.

    We don't need him.

  2. 1964 Ford Galaxy 500 fastback with a 390 Police Interceptor engine with 330 horsepower, stick with overdrive & a 411 rear. It had a AM radio with a reverberator ($19. extra) I also had power steering so my dad could drive it. I disconnected the PS when I raced at the track.

    Black with black vinyl interior.

    $2900 complete.

    I wish I had a picture to show you.

  3. Hi, I've played with Directv for a long time I've installed & Sighted my own dishes. I've read & learned about the satelites, their locations & how they work. I was a loyal customer of Directv for many years. Before we moved to Florida from NJ, we used to make trips to Florida after our house was built. I set up a portable dish to the correct co-ordinates & I used to hook it up so we could watch the Jet game on Sunday (before I unpacked the car).

    Later, I found out that you could add on receivers to your "vacation" home. At the time it was strictly legit. My son bought our house in NJ & I kept my account in NJ & gave my son "free" DTV. Then they went to the "spotlight" signal for the local satellites. In effect it was like shining a flashlight signal on the NY, NJ. & the Metropolitan area. When they did that all my boxes lost the local channels WPIX, WOR, and all above but I still had the major locals that were on CBS, NBC, ABC, 7 FOX with the NY feed so I still had the JET games.

    What I'm getting at is this... If you have a friend or family member up north with Directv & has the regional sports package, (SNY, YES, etc,) you can make a "swap".  Box for box with your trusted friend or family member & get ALL your Jet games, most of your NYY games, (some are on WPIX local to the NJ, NY, area) remember the Spotlight signal. Your cost for the swap would be about $20. for you to ship to NY, or NJ. & about $20. for your partner to ship you their box. If you live in Florida or where ever your partner will get the regional sports stations you subscribe to. Any "premium channels would work also. The receiver is stupid it doesn't know where it is. It depends on where the dish is alligned to.

    There are also other ways but for that info, you will have to PM me.

    Good Luck in your quest.

    Good luck & let's go JETS.

  4. Sorry. I thought that we got the picks for hiring him. That's why I don't post much. I guess I didn't read my "cut & Paste". I only "assumed" we got them. ( and I know what 'assumed" means) It makes a A** out of you & me. Sorry for being a A**

  5. I don't know if it was posted yet, but we also got extra draft picks with the hire of Coach Saleh.

    Among the revisions to the Rooney Rule, the NFL agreed teams that help develop minority coaches and executives should be rewarded with additional draft picks and as a result of Saleh's hire the 49ers will receive two third-round compensatory draft picks.

  6. I hope ARod gets suspended forever!

    I don't know if they can do this, but if I was the Yankees, after Arod serves his suspension, I would ship him down to "A" ball & let him finish out his contract riding busses to the minor league games. Oh, & by the way, any homers he hit in the minors wouldn't count towards the record. About two weeks of the minors, he would be begging to get out of his contract so he could play somewhere else in the Majors.

  7. I would give him one last chance.... But first, I would let Brunnell go (He's only taking up a roster spot). Sanchez has a QB coach. I would give the kid from Alabama a shot at #2. At least if Sanchez is having one of his bad days we would have a young, hungry QB to put in. 50+ passes for a "ground & Pound" team? Something is very wrong with that picture!

    I'll give you this... Sanchez is a hard worker, he studies a lot of game film, etc. But what if..... As hard as he works & studies & tries, he has reached his "plateau". Does he have anymore "upside" left?

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a sanchez hater, I don't post much. This is just an observance on my part.

  8. True anyone can injured.

    But the susceptibility to getting injured increases exponentially with age and specially when you been away from the game for 2 seasons.

    Age is just a number. The main thing is what kind of "football" shape is the individual in, what are his work habits? Derrick Mason is 37. How old was Jerry Rice when he hung it up? It's all up to the individual & ONLY time will tell.
