    As someone who raised 5 kids you get to the point that nothing is a lot of money because ain’t like you get to keep it anyways. 

    Yeah, this.  Just two kids, but between a home reno project, summer camps, and upcoming vacations, it's all just, "well, throw it on the pile" at the moment.  And "the moment" is lasting a lot longer than I'd expected.  I'd dance a jig if any bill came back at only $1000.

    Agree or not, 1k is alot of money. And 75k is a lot for dinner and f'd up to make some rookies pay

    It's a lot of money to most people.  It's not a lot to many people.

    That said, I do agree with you that the 75K dinner is ****ed up.  The NFL actively (and correctly) puts programs in place teaching these guys how to save and the importance of investing.  This is the exact opposite of that.  All hazing is bullsh*t.

    No no. Rich people don't spend money at all. That's why the market demographic for McLaren is middle school history teachers.

    Indeed.  This opinion that $1,000 is a lot of money and rich people don't spend is largely from FinTwit personalities who've amassed a million dollar net worth over a decade by living off the grid, eating ramen, and recycling their bodily fluids.

    It is. Rich people are the most tight with money. The ones who arnt are not rich for long ...bad decisions etc..

    It's really not.  This is a caricature of wealthy people that people without money hold.  While there are certainly some wealthy people who are 'tight with money,' it's not actually true as a rule.  And it's certainly not true that they think 1K is a lot of money when they have close to 10K mortgages.

    My favorite parts were the draft day phone calls. They are hilariously awkward and all basically the same.

    Hogan: This is Rex with the Jets. No, not that Rex. Yes, the New York Jets. The football team. You ready to do this?  Let's get it. 

    Douglas: Hey, what's up man? We're so fired up to have you, man. That's right, brother. Fired up, man. [Other Hulk Hogan catch phrases.]

    Saleh: [LOUD YELLING] Congratulations, brother. All gas. No brake. All gas no brake. All gas no brake. All gas no brake. Congratulations, brother.

    Woody: Oh, we were so, so worried we wouldn't get you. But we got you, even though we were so, so worried. And we are so, so happy. Everyone is happy. Especially me. You are a handsome man. We are so happy to have you. I knew when they told me your shoe size that we needed to get you. Have you ever been to a Turkish Bath? We have great ones here.

    Christopher [before being locked in a closet]: Today is the first day of the rest of your life. 

    You put all this together and managed to forget, Woody telling every player, “you’re gonna love New York,” which he literally did.  Every time.

    A lot to be excited about with this roster.  I just don't believe in the QB, which tempers my excitement and expectations a good bit.  6+ downvotes incoming!

    This is where I'm at.  I think if this draft lives up to its potential, this roster could be just one more solid offseason away from a championship caliber.  I just worry that we'll be in the 2010 situation again next year.  All I can ask for from them is that if this year, Zach doesn't make meaningful, obvious strides, that we address the situation aggressively next year.

    He is talking a lot of sh*t on instagram.  I think he reads this forum. I hope he shuts half this board up game 1.


    Doubt it.  He gets it on twitter just as bad.

    I’d take someone with that heart on my team.  At least the runner just put down 26 miles when she couldn’t get to her feet.

    Of course there's no "evidence" but the people I'm talking about know who they are.  No one is going to come out and say they're rooting for failure

    They know when they're watching games and Zach makes a good play - as much as they want to not feel that way, they find themselves happy with his mistakes.  Wether they want to feel that way or not.

    If that's not you, then this isn't meant for you.

    I can't express how many times I've repeated.  If you're not that person then you're not and shouldn't be offended.

    I've tried to make it as clear as possible that it's not everyone and not most people.  But, I am quite confident there are a handful of people that feel exactly that way.

    Can I be, surely, but I doubt it.

    I have no problem with criticism, I criticize plenty.  There's a lot of not like about this team over the past decade.

    I'm not offended.  I'm suggesting that the person you're speaking about is fictional.

    There are days posters enjoy the hell out of pounding their chest and saying “I was right HE SUCKS.”   Whoop d doo.   You could go to the casino and tell everyone at the roulette table, “it won’t be 12 this time,” then puff your chest afterwards.   And you’d be taking a more risky stand than  betting against a Jets QB.

    But I think they’d love to be wrong and see Zach succeed.  

    But only after a long time if all doubt was removed.   I think it would take a couple of Super Bowls for some.   Because now they just want everyone else to see “Zach sucks” and the positives annoy them, because they think it’s slowing the inevitable failure.  

    You were doing so well up until that last paragraph.

    Almost everyone on this website rallied around Ryan Fitzpatrick, and he was merely adequate.

    It would only take slightly above average for the majority of the fanbase to put the guy in he HOF.  Hell, Sam Darnold played reasonably well in a loss to Green Bay, and that game was used as an example of how he was just waiting to be elite for 2 more seasons.  The problem is, we haven't just had bad, we've had worst in the league bad.  Sanchez was exactly that.  Darnold was exactly that.  Pennington was not that, but he was so injury prone, and so physically limited, that enough of us knew there was no way he'd ever get it done.

    I am pretty confident there are people here that would rather see Wilson fail than the Jets win.

    It's true, and it just completely baffles me. You would rather be right in your own reasons for disliking a guy or thinking he's not good than actually see him and the team do well. Sadly, it's a reflection of our society in the country for awhile now......we seem to get off on seeing people fail. It's very sad, and actually pretty creepy.

    Do either of you have even a shred of evidence of this?

    Many of us were told this about Chad.  Then we were told it about Sanchez.  Then we were told this about Darnold.  Now, we're being told this about Wilson.  And with Wilson, I don't think anyone has completely shut the door on him as of yet.

    Still, maybe, just maybe, on this opinion website, there are people who share a negative opinion of the QB because that's what they feel when they see him play.  I mean, those people have been right every step of the way, so why do you get to say what they actually want, when we've never seen anyone express the position you're ascribing to them - disappointment and embarrassment that they were wrong about a QB?

    Does anybody notice that every single tweet from practice is about Wilson?   Nothing about how Hall looks. Nothing about Moore or G. Wilson or the TEs. Nothing about Gardner.  Nothing about anything other than what will get the reaction you see in this thread.  Wilson did this and didn't do that.  Unbelievable that some of you fall for this BS.  Every . Single.  Summer....

    There have been tweets about all of these players, save perhaps, Hall.  But, I'm not sure there's much to say re: a running back in non-hitting situations.

    JD won't ever move on from Zach because to do so would invite his own firing 

    In general, do more people get fired for continuing to make the same bad decision or for moving on from a bad decision?
