Good evening. My name is Steve. I come from a rough area. I used to be addicted to crack but now I am off it and trying to stay clean. That is why I am selling magazine subscriptions.

Hello everyone.  Short-time lurker, but this is my first year as a STH (Section 133).  I'm a typical millennial attorney from Long Island pissing his money away on luxuries while complaining about stu

Hello everybody. I have been a Jets fan since I was a small child. My Dad loved Joe Namath when I was a kid and Alabama never had a pro team so the University of Alabama was it with us, and Joe Namath

I am a complete dingus ...I made this post on the main forum and did not see this topic so doing a quick copy paste! 

 

 

Let's Go Jet Nation!

I'm a British NFL fan that moved to MN a couple years ago. I got into NFL about 15 years ago and will honestly admit I was a big Seattle fan previously and always had the Jets as a second team due to family in NY and all my other teams are NY based, though I can't stand Seattle or their fans anymore! I drew away from watching the NFL a good few years ago and got really into baseball and took up playing the game in the UK. I love NY and cheering for the Yankees and the Jets and my NY teams honor when I rock and root for the jets. I have always followed the jets since late Pennington days but never really came out as a Jets fan, whenever going to NY I would get jets baseball caps and jerseys for the collection. 

Being in MN working with colleagues etc I thought I'd try to get into the NFL, I tried to follow the Vikings to engage in conversation with colleagues and make friends, I tried it but it wasn't me. I can't stand the purple and to listen to these fans gruelling their QB ..your meant to get behind the team not just rant that you want everyone fired. I hope they do well as a hometown team but I'll just continue to walk around with my green Jets colors on ...not too many around here I tell you that!

What is amazing is my wife is also a big fan too, when living in MN the vikings fans can't get behind their QB I remember cheering for Hackenberg and we all know how that turned out! We both love New York and have been a few times and are now planning a trip to take in a game there .. hopefully do a combo Yankees and Jets game when visiting! 

I get chirped too pieces by everyone I know when I tell them I like the Jets here but I don't care I know Sammy D will get us into the playoffs, with the addition of Becton (and hopefully Warford) I think we can make a solid o-line for years ahead. It is fun rooting and going through the bad times makes it seem much better when the good times come and I hope this year Bell has a good season and Gase silences critics. 

Anyways if you are still reading this post I just want to say thanks again for the add Jet Nation, I look forward to contributing in the forum..... Is there any sub forums for Rangers and Yankees threads?

LET'S F'n GO .... J-E-T-S ..JETS JETS JETS

 

 

Thanks for signing up!

Once hockey and baseball are back there should be more talk about those sports.  :)

I've been following this site for years, but never joined till recent. I discovered this site when I was trying to find out about Vernon Gholston ( i didn't know much about him, & was looking for info ) and read on here that someone posted that he was going to be Matt Light's future father. ( Nice to know that everyone isn't right on here.) Anyway, I've been a diehard fan since I was a kid(Thanks dad). I'm not gonna lie, I did quit watching only 1 season due to the jets signing Vick ( for my own personal reasons). I'm a simple man with simple opinions, I can't offer any insider scoops or detailed scouting reports. I was born & raised in NJ till my parents got a divorced, then I moved to FL( still stuck here). So i got harrassed daily by dolphin fans(still do). I look forward to being an active member of this fine community, & thank you for having me. Please don't ban me already for bringing up Vernon. Happy Holidays everyone!!!

Hey I am really sorry I missed this. Thank you for signing up. Not going to thank you for making us think about Vernon Gholston.  :)

Feeling better about the Jets now that Saleh is here?

Feeling very good about the Saleh hire, and all the new coaches he's bringing aboard too. Haven't felt this good about the team in a while. Thanks for having me here man.

Hello JN. Became a Jets fan in 1986 when I was 10 to rebel against my Giants fan family. Hard to remember exactly which game I started paying real attention, but they were on a roll and I liked the color green. They squashed my youthful hopes and dreams pretty good that season, and things kept going downhill until 11 years later with BP.  Those early years were dark ones. Gase was just as bad but it hurt more years ago. I guess older Jets fans are a little desensitized.

Things are looking up. JD seems to be turning this ship around piece by piece. Very excited to see what kind of foundation we have laid after this year and if we can really take a leap with next years bonanza of early picks. 

I chat on some other boards but this is my first related to sports. Lately I have been following several threads here and wow, there are some really knowledgeable fans here!

Take care, Rob

Welcome, Rob.  Don't ever let knowledge stand in the way of posting.   That's a paraphrase of Max' credo for the site.
