  1. I am not 128, the rest of those people are.

    I'm going to have to believe him.

    There's a subtle, but obvious difference between Ben, and JR, and that's the usage of punctuation. Unless we're going to give JR enough credit to do something so minor that most people wouldn't even notice to distinguish this character, then we have to assume someone else is typing for Ben.

    That having been said:

  2. I'm embarrassed to say this, but I've never actually seen any of these movies.

    What's the back story? I just watched the teaser, and it seems like a kid, who's birthday was friday the 13th, died at summer camp.

    But how do they rationalize him alive as a killer, who, if I remember correctly, is now immortal?

  3. That's why I'm laughing. People wanted Harrison crucifed for it. The irony is so rich I can only take a little at a time. :rl::rl::rl:

    This is exactly why I never commented on that. It was only a matter of time... Like being a Jet means there's automatically some high moral fiber for the players that this would never happen.**

    **Not that it necessarily has, need something better than 'heard it on the radio' w/ no other confirmation.

  4. He has every right to question Mangini's policy on injuries. But he kept it up and became a dooshie very quickly. That didnt sound like a guy trying to get to the bottom of an injury, that sounded like a guy who wants attention and knew exactly how to get it. Mangini has every right to tell him nothing and the Jets have every right to tell him to shut his yap.

    I prefer Mangini discloses zero information about the team. F#ck the media. They dont do them any good.

    You're right, it wasn't a guy trying to get to the bottom of an injury. It was the culmination of a guy who's pissed off that he can never get any information.

    This was obviously the tipping point.

  5. As I'm sure you know, another side to this is player safety. you don't want the other guys knowing exactly where it hurts, or they will twist in in a pile

    he's protecting his guys, screw the media, they are useless now in the internet age

    That's understandable, but it's not like anyone is gunning for Nugent when he's not playing. Nor was anyone gunning for Vilma when he was on IR.

  6. I disagree. I am happy that Mangini isn't on the radio mid-week saying "we are going to run the ball more this week". Read these blogs of the main stream media guys -- how many times have they written about only being able to see the first 40 minutes of practice? Which consists of stretching, warmups and punting.

    I would rather these guys not see the practices. I would rather the assistant coaches don't talk to the media. None of that helps the Jets on Sunday and that is all that matters.

    Yes Mangini can go overboard at times. Not saying if Vilma's problem last year was in his left or right leg. Big deal if he releases that, but he is trying to change a media friendly culture. He has established his rules and they are what they are. Everyone knows it, so I am not sure what the point of pressing him on this is.

    They aren't covering a Presidential election here.

    The point, I think, is not specifically Nugent, but an overall frustration that Mangini has basically made him, and his colleagues useless.

    I agree with you that Mangini shouldn't release his game plan, like Herm used to do, but there is a middle ground between giving up your game plan, and treating every question like they're asking about troop movements in Afganistan.

  7. thats not reporting thats just bieng annoying. yelling and whining like a little bitch! thats not what they teach you at journalism school

    Yeah, but after 2.5 years of someone making your job unnecessarily difficult, I can understand DL being a bit upset.

    Did he handle it as well as he could have? No. Do you always?

  8. a$$hole was the word you were looking for.

    I don't come out in support of the media guys that often, but here I will.

    Leberfields job is to report on the Jets. He's supposed to be able to get information and hand it out to us, the fans.

    This Jets organization goes above and beyond in the realm of secrecy. Literally, can anyone think of the competitive advantage that the Chiefs will have this week by knowing Nugent is out with a hamstring, vs Nugent is out with a 'leg'.

    You want to replace the Chiefs, fine, the Bills the following week, what is going to change in their meetings, in their gameplan, if they are to know that Nugent is out with a hamstring vs. a leg.

    There's protecting your gameplan/strategy, and then there is absurd, and Mangini and co. have gone past the point of absurd.

  9. EY --

    I have some concerns about your crew. You guys are TERRIBLE at this vcash thing. Save son, vsocialsecurity isn't going to be there when you need it.

    I am going to spot you some vcash because I know this has been a very difficult time for you. As a token of our appreciation.

    Thanks Max,

    It's much appreciated. I will never again bet my VCash on the Jets.

    I was wondering, with my new found VWealth, is there any way I can by some long term Mutual VFunds?

    I'm trying to do the responsible thing here.
