No way. I would say that the NFL would be idiots to let a long standing NY franchise move to a loser city like St. Louis (there's a reason why three franchises have left), but then again, we're talking about Roger Goodell, whose stupidity level genuinely scares me.

This would be a lot like when my wife asked me for a divorce. It would sting at first but, in the long run, I'd be a lot better off. 

Forbes has the Jets value listed at 2.75 billion right now. They are the 7th highest NFL franchise. If someone bought them at NY Prices and moved them to a former failed football city in the middle of

It's not a rumor.  It's a comedian starting shlt to see how many fools will believe his nonsense.  What insight does a morning drive, cohost to a radio show have?  Jeez, one born every minute.  

I wouldn't give Carton that much credit.  It takes talent to be a comedian and he has none.

I run one of the largest NFL Fans sites and you are going to try and educate me on where Jets fans live? Guess what I know where they live and there are tons of them in this area.

This is OT but I was always curious about the geography of where Jet's fans live in the Metro area.

I figured most are in Queens and Long Island but I live in Jersey and I know there are plenty out here.

Seriously, I'd be interested in seeing a map or breakdown of where they live if one has been circulated.

Jets have a huge debt on the Stadium.  Not going anywhere.

If they did decide to move what would happen to all the season ticket holders who are paid in full on their PSL's?

Calling a no talent stern ripoff artist like Carton a comedian is like calling Bowles a NFL Head Coach

It's a dumb idea, but don't put anything beyond that greedy, inept POS Goodell.  If he thinks he could get a $1 billion expansion fee out of having a new team in NY, he'd push it.  He couldn't get that with 2 teams already in NY.

Goodell already worked out Spanos paying $550 million relocation fee to move to LA.  He could easily get $450 million relocation fee for a move to St. Louis.

Also, Woody has debt from building the stadium and buying the team, so the purchase price may be deflated a bit for the Busch family to assume some of those debts.

Now think up a good reason that Woody, forget the Goodell nonsense, would devalue his team by moving from NY to ST L.  Give up a top drawing team to become ? For what benefit?

I guess I had to make it clear that I actually didn't think it was going to happen. I didn't expect such a negative reaction to this.

I think starting the thread was fine. It was on the radio, so it is definitely a discussion.

I just took exception to how you portrayed the Jets fan base which is inaccurate.

Jets fans are everywhere. I wear nothing but Jets clothes and people say let's go Jets wherever I am in NY or NJ.

To anyone saying the NFL won't let this happen, you clearly have been paying zero attention to the NFL lately. They let the rams move even though it went against every rule in the book. The rules don't matter. What matters is who's making them money and with a city like STL, which the lack of attendance at LA games has proven that STL is as capable if not more so than LA at attracting fans.

just like STL and San Diego, say your sweet prayers. First it's a rumor, then it's meetings and talk, then next year around this time you won't have a team anymore.

 I don't see the attraction in selling the Jets to the Busch family. First their beer is garbage. Second and most importantly there are enough billionairs in New York to keep the Jets there in the #1 television market in the country.  Automatic sold out home games, rabid fan base. Why give all that up for a city that couldn't sustain 2 franchises already. Woody is already a pariah in New York sports circles, he would villified forever like the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York baseball Giants owners.

The NFL would never let this happen?????????????

In the Super Bowl era they let teams leave Los Angeles....TWICE.

They let Art Modell move a popular Browns team away from Cleveland.

They are on the verge of letting the Raiders leave Oakland FOR THE SECOND TIME. 

Why wouldn't they let the JETS leave? A presence in St. Louis would be great for the Midwest, and it would probably be great for the Jets, too.

That said, I hope they stay in NJ.

I would guess that the new expansion franchise would fill that spot. They are not going to leave NY without two teams.

Wait what?  That NFL is going to expand 4 teams but they're going move an original AFL team to a sh*t hole only to backfill them in NY?

i don't even...

Because of the Jets illustrious history?  

I know. It was hard to type.
